Warning! This review contains Spoliers

  • So this is one of the best Bond films yet

  • holy crap the cinematography is very well done. There is very good use of light and dark scenes. Scenes from China are especially nice with the lights of buildings that really helps set the mood

  • its interesting to note that this time, Bond is given very little in terms of cool gadgetry. There was even a scene where Bond is expecting more gadgets and Q is like "What? Were you expecting an exploding pen? We don't do that anymore."

  • good plot, good action, good chemistry between all the characters

  • when I first saw the villain, I was like Wait, isn't it that guy from "No Country For Old Men"? Yep! it is! Plays his role well, should of been at least nominated for an Oscar

  • its interesting to watch of how the nature of threats are shifting to more relevant 21st century problems such as cybersecurity and intelligence

  • "I could do more damage from this laptop before I eat breakfast than you can do in a year in the field"

  • there are a few things that I didn't like though

  • no one can survive a fall from a bridge that high

  • Really? All your under cover agents on one hard drive? Cmon man, don't be that lazy

  • hot chicks, like usual, no complaints here

  • never got bored at all during the 2 hr + movie

  • 5/5 would watch again

in a nutshell

One of best Bond films yet
