Dalby Herald - - LIFE -

Daniel Craig’s (pic­tured left) re­booted Bond stays close to the glo­be­trot­ting, ac­tion-driven spec­ta­cle of ear­lier en­tries in Spec­tre, al­though it re­mains re­liant on the long-es­tab­lished 007 for­mula. Pick­ing up where Sky­fall axed Judi D ench’s

M and in­tro­duced a new gen­er­a­tion of MI6 ac­com­plices (Naomie Harris’ Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw’s Q and Ralph Fi­ennes’ new M), the much-an­tic­i­pated flick opens with Bond in Mex­ico City on a mis­sion to kill an Ital­ian ter­ror­ist, which leads to a fast and fu­ri­ous he­li­copter scrum. Bond then dis­cov­ers a ten­ta­cled crim­i­nal or­gan­i­sa­tion called SPEC­TRE and the ac­tion ups the ante. It’s clas­sic en­ter­tain­ment

at its best.
