Craig earned better swan song as Bond

- No Time To Die


While his Bond journey may not have always gifted him top tier flicks, Daniel Craig continues to deserve considerat­ion as the finest 007 and here he’s arguably at his best as a vulnerable, world-weary Bond with trust issues who is still determined to save the day.

The action is fantastic too but the film takes far too long to get going and while it was a neat idea to introduce a female spy for Bond to have a playful rivalry with, Lashana Lynch’s Nomi is a surprising­ly underwritt­en presence.

And Rami Malek must also be one of the weaker Bond baddies; he just doesn’t carry the threat required.
