With expectations for this film off the scale, it’s almost certain that it wouldn’t exceed, or even meet everyone’s!
If seat availability at our local Odeon is anything to go by (we couldn’t get tickets until the 11am performance on Saturday, and it came out on Thursday), then I think it’s certainly a popular choice for lots of people round here.
Well, what did we think of it? A good story overall with some very credible acting from all parties. However, it all felt a bit too-gritty…and it was certainly pretty violent. There is also this trend now with action scenes for the camera NOT to quite keep up with the action – I suppose it’s designed to make it all feel more spontaneous and unpredictable. Trouble is, the down-side is that you sometimes miss what’s going on – and that defeats the object doesn’t it?
For me, there wasn’t enough of the Aston Martin – a short scene at the start that left it door-less on the passenger side – and that was it. Not many sex-scenes either – blink and you missed them!!!
All-in-all, a slightly disappointing film with not enough action, too much talking and an over-emphasis of Bond’s internal rather than external battles.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
