‘No Time to Die’ Does Not Disappoint!

       What an amazing ride it has been for 007 and Daniel Craig. He has played Bond for 15 years over five films, making him the longest-serving Bond. No Time to Die does not disappoint the renowned series’ fans but surprises them with loads of excitement and classic Bond-behavior.  The film has explosions and emotions galore. 

       The movie is now on view in the US with familiar faces present and newcomers staging, No Time to Die has all the quintessential Bond moves.  

       This edition of Bond includes unprecedented high-tech sound effects and a more in-depth storyline. 

       High-quality production is the key ingredient of No Time to Die. The screenplay is credited to long-time series writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, but also to director Cary Joji Fukunaga and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. No Time to Die includes Bond movie staples like gravity-defying car chases, ridiculous doomsday weapons, and vast brutalist hideouts full of bad guys.  

       Daniel Craig shows off his wide-ranging acting skills and even some humor in this action-packed Bond film. We watch Bond/Craig showing his amazing stunts as never before but also adding new elements to his character, just before Bond’s retirement: he can be romantic, playful, and goofy, or shift back to business, well dressed, and ready to show his 007 skills. 

       Lashana Lynch and Ana De Armas are more than a match for Bond as the high-kicking, fierce women in his life. De Armas shows her acrobatic skills by pirouetting in and out of the film leaving you wanting more, and Lynch tries to steal the show with her amazing acting skills. Other actors including Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Ralph Fiennes also add to the depth of the film.   

       So what will be next for the Bond franchise? Craig has left an indelible mark and keeps us thirsty for more. The film is long at 2 hours and 43 minutes but worth it all. Go and enjoy!
