No Time to Die

No Time to Die ★★★½

"No Time To Die" is the end of an era, the end of the Bond that propelled the franchise into the 21st century. Daniel Craig's final mission is bigger, more action packed and longer than any installment before it. While it's no "Skyfall" or "Casino Royale" and contains some weaknesses, particularly in terms of Lea Seydoux' and Rami Malek's character motivations, it's overall convincing in that it is grounding the character of James Bond differently than expected. Phoebe Waller-Bridge's fingerprints add a proper polish to the story, Cary Jogi Fukunaga proves to be the right person in the director's chair and, of course, leading the way is 007 himself Daniel Craig. This film completes his journey to a tee and leaves a legacy that will be hard to surpass.
