Spectre review

Spectre is the film Bond fans feared Skyfall might be. Sam Mendes’ first 007 outing arrived in 2012, rounding off the series’ 50th anniversary celebrations. It earned widespread praise for being among the best films in the series; a modern, slick action thriller that mixed the old school aura of Bond with a contemporary sensibility. Spectre, by comparison, is a soulless succession of clichés and references.

I greatly enjoyed Skyfall despite its faults, and consider Daniel Craig’s debut Casino Royale up there among the very best Bond flicks. I think Craig is a perfect fit for the character, capable of encapsulating everything Ian Fleming intended the spy to be, and all he became in the films. He is a charmer, but has the look of a hardened thug who doesn’t quite belong in the world of sophistication he inhabits, and whose piercing blue eyes betray a tough exterior.That is Bond, and Craig has portrayed that well before – but here, like returning director Mendes – he feels like he’s going through the motions. My abiding thought upon leaving the cinema was that he should have bowed out after Skyfall – which ended with the perfect set-up for a fresh start.

Bond as a series is unique because the continuity is lax, affording filmmakers a great deal of freedom. Mostly, it is a series of unconnected and self-contained stories about a cast of established characters that can change when required. For some that’s hard to grasp (I’m looking at you, people who think James Bond is a code name) but it works, and Craig’s more interconnected era proves that.

In Spectre plot threads from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall are brought in and tied up by the sinister criminal organisation of the film’s title. This is something truly hammered home; the filmmakers bludgeoning its audience with names and faces from Bond’s past to the point of blunt force trauma. It tries too hard, and the result is a feeling of redundancy.

If the Craig era has had an aim, it has been to reinvigorate the character and give audiences a better understanding of the damaged hero Bond is. Casino Royale got the ball rolling, Skyfall finished the job. There was no need to make another film taking another march through Bond’s psyche.

The film itself makes for a bizarre watch. It is beautifully shot by Her and Interstellar cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, and Sam Mendes has some moments of flair as a director – particularly the well orchestrated opening shot and the meeting Spectre’s council. However the action is largely bland. A central car chase through Rome is one of the dullest I’ve ever seen, shot for most of its duration like a car advert. In fact, the film as a whole has the look and feel of a luxurious perfume commercial, and sadly all the depth of one as well. Only the train fight really stands out, highlighting the impact and intensity the rest of the film lacks.
