Mentioned here last week, the latest Bond film, the 27th in the series and the fifth and last time Daniel Craig will play the British super spy (or so we’re told) finally makes it to the screen after nearly a year and a half delay.
This satisfying entry – already a global hit — in the franchise features a strong emotional center that’s often lacking in theses films. But rest assured, there is no shortage in the trademark and expected big action sequences.. Big recommendation.
