Very good non theater released movie, I was really impressed with the plot twists. As for a 5"4 woman taking on big guys as I began to watch fight scenes it looked believable (she got thrown around like a rag doll).

Wow! Two leads that I haven't seen in a long time. Nice to see Orlando again and what a treat seeing Noomi. I've only seen her in GWDT and loved it. So much better than the American version..

Good movie, 100% recommend you watch it. It was one of the best movies I've watched recently, a good story, fairly credible and without the usual annoying and convenient plot.

Watched this today... Amazing. Absolutely the best Daniel Craig Bond film! This one had all the things like in the old 007 movies, which I have been missing since Casino Royale. Skyfall was very good, but this is just like what 007 movies should be.

Nice action with some humour, proper villains, gadgets, explosions...

I kept holding out hope for this movie until the last thirty minutes of it and then I just gave the fuck up. Spectre is definitely not the worst James Bond movie I've seen (as a Bond movie it's fairly average), but it's definitely the most disappointing. For me, the main problem is that with Spectre they tried to mix the gritty, semi-realistic and modern James Bond of the Daniel Craig Era with the campy, colorful and over-the-top style of the classic James Bond movies; but it just doesn't work. The dialogue is cheesy, the tone is inconsistent as all hell, the cinematography (while impressive at some points) falls short of what Roger Deakins accomplished with Skyfall and the third act of the plot is nonsensical. But most importantly, Spectre makes the worst mistake a Bond movie can make, and that's having an uninteresting villain. Christoph Waltz is one of my favorite actors of all time, but his character Franz Oberhauser is a borderline non-entity in the film, has no believable or compelling motivation and overall just isn't memorable in the slightest. I really, really wanted to like this film because it had the fantastic potential to bring James Bond greatest enemy into the modern era, but it never manages to really capitalize on that potential. Hopefully they can do something special with the last movie that Craig is signed on for.

I hate the fact that they've made bond an outlaw in the last 3 movies. Why can't I just have another a nice sarcastic and serious movie like Casino Royale instead of these dreadfully monotonous, serious movies that feel like generic action movies
