Spectre Review: Dynamic Chapter in 007 Franchise
Following the events of Skyfall, Spectre throws James Bond (Daniel Craig) in a new and thrilling adventure. By request of the former M (Judi Dench), Bond goes off the radar to track down a mysterious organization known as Spectre. Once infiltrating the group, Bond discovers that Spectre is run by a ghost from his past: Franz Oberhauser (Christoph Waltz). In order to stop Oberhauser, Bond must protect the daughter of Mr. White (Jesper Christense): Madeline Snow (Lea Seydoux). As the two go off to thwart Spectre, the world of espionage hangs in the balance as MI-6 finds itself in trouble when government agent C (Andrew Scott) seeks to disband the 00 program.
While it may not has as strong as its predecessor, Spectre is quite the dynamic film. The movie had an engaging story, a great cast and action fitting to the 007 name. Yet of all the things that made up this movie, the most impressive about Spectre was the movie's sense to bring things to a close. Never before have I seen such a move from a James Bond film; and while there will be another movie, I still tip my hat to the filmmakers for daring to try such a direction. In the end Spectre not only does the name James Bond justice, but I feel that it is a must see for any fan to this action series.
