Spectre

The twenty-fourth installment of the James Bond movie series, Spectre, was released on November 5th, 2015.  The film is incredibly captivating and Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, heightens the experience with his amazing acting. The movie is very interesting, leaving the viewers on the edge of their seats in excitement.  Without giving anything away, the film revolves around an elaborate crime ring called Spectre (Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion), which Bond must thwart in order to save the world. The movie, like most classic Bond films, has menacing villains, tretourous allies, and an iconic and memorable Bond girl that not only does 007 fall for, but the audience as well. This Bond movie has its fair share of romance, action, gadgets, treachery, and suspense (just like the others), but this film raises the bar, making this 007’s most exciting adventure yet.

 

Daniel Craig does not disappoint in this film, nor did he in the last three of the series, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall.  While he has mentioned on various occasions that Spectre would be his last Bond film, the director has recently revealed that there will be at least one more installment of the James Bond series with Daniel Craig as Bond. He is very popular in the eyes of the audience; it would be a true shame to see Bond leave.
