Half-geek. Ranter. Recovering journalist.
A modern attempt to do an epic, Ken Adams designed Connery-era Bond, with 21st century storytelling and sensibilities sewn through it. Doesn’t quite pull everything off - some unnecessary overplotting and underwriting gives it a few thematic stumbles, but the cast are largely excellent and visually it’s as bold and distinctive as Skyfall. Pretty apt ending to the Daniel Craig era, really.
