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.
