Spectre (2015)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime 146 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

I've never been a fan of the Daniel Craig Bond movies.  They're just not much fun to watch.  Take for example the opening sequence.  It's spectacular, but...Craig tells the girl in the bed he'll be "back in a few minutes".  But he never returns.  Roger Moore's Bond would have parachuted from the helicopter (the helicopter's fate never explained), landed on the balcony he departed from, and walked back into the room completely unscathed.  The girl would ask where he was, and he'd have some witty reply.

The whole movie feels that way.  It's fine,  The biggest flaw is Christoph Waltz's villain is completely wasted by a bad script.

They say Craig doesn't want to be Bond anymore.  I don't want him to be Bond anymore either.
