Blunt Reviews Presents: Spectre (2015)

spectre 2

It’s difficult because I know I enjoyed Spectre, and it’s definitely a good Bond film, but I expected more from it after Skyfall set the standard so high. Unfortunately “good” is the most that can be said of this film. It was ultimately a disappointment, but an admirable one. Sam Mendes is still doing wonders as director, but for me there was too much box ticking and not enough development. It has all the cliché elements audiences typically associate with Bond, but it’s useless stapling those elements to a hollow shell. Most annoyingly, Christoph Waltz is a completely wasted talent.
