Saw the film last night, for the most part it was really good. I’d have much preferred if Bond had been able to sail off into the sunset rather than be killed off. They really outdid themselves on this film with all the globe trotting and gorgeous locations they found. They seemed to travel to even more places than the last M:I film. I get the feeling they must have re-edited the movie to change Heracles to be nano-machines instead of a virus because of Covid. It makes so much more sense as a virus- it’s stolen from a bio-weapons lab, the manufacturing process on Chemical Island seems much more how you’d culture a virus, it’s somehow permanent and can be transferred indefinitely which makes more sense with a self-replicating virus and EMPs wouldn’t affect viruses. I don’t necessarily mind, it just sort of stuck out to me as I was watching. It was nice to see Q plug Obruchev’s USB stick into a “sandbox”. It irked me no end in Skyfall to see the supposed boy genius just plug an enemy device directly into their top secret MI6 network and just switch it on. It should have been x-rayed, dismantled and the drive cloned. I loved how Lyutsifer’s base reminded me so much of Dr. No, it was a really fantastic and visually arresting series of sets. I really need to re-watch Dr. No now as it’s been years since I last watched it. Zimmer’s score was OK, it’s fairly bland played over headphones but at full blast in a cinema it manages to work. There were a few places where it sounded like Batman Begins! The Billie Eilish song was pretty meh, but maybe it was grow on me, most of them do after a few listens. I still miss the iconic scores of John Barry. My favourite moment was when Obruchev was raving at Nomi that he’d program the nano machines to wipe out “her race” and she kicked him into the lake of nano machines. Overall I’d give it a 7/10. Probably Craig’s second best Bond after Casino Royale.
