This is a dumb movie that I liked.
Full review at ScullyVision.
Fares much better after watching the whole fucking franchise. The increased level of contrivance clashes with Craig’s portion of the series thus far, but it does not clash with the series on the whole. Once you make peace with that, this is a ton of fun, wonky (but exciting) third act notwithstanding.
I don’t mind that Bond randomly chased a car with a stolen plane, but I wish I knew how he got the plane, and from where. It doesn’t really…
A new trash classic. Piles of terrible, bizarre choices on every level of production. The thing is, these choices are made in earnest by EXTREMELY committed people. Dumb as hell, but lightning paced and a fuck of a lot of fun. Super duper trashy in all the best ways. If this were shot on film and released in the 1970s, we’d all have a wonderful reverence for it.
The best kind of crap.
Dennis Quaid has 8-pack abs.
