Consensus: Spectre nudges Daniel Craig's rebooted Bond closer to the glorious, action-driven spectacle of earlier entries, although it's admittedly reliant on established 007 formula.

I regard it as a ravishing exercise in near-despair, with Bond beset by the suspicion that, were he to desist, both his character and his cause would be unmasked as a void. Killing is his living, and his proof of life.

For the most part, it's efficient-enough Bond fare - overlong car chases, beautiful women in eternal danger, crazy stunts, suave cool under fire. Nice fitting suits.

It's the end of an era, but not the end of James Bond.

Dazzles early and fizzles late...Bond is not Batman; he does not need an origin story.

In the end, this solid Bond does justice to the character's long legacy while paying due diligence to what he has become under Daniel Craig's stewardship.

For his latest adventure, James Bond mixes the personal drama of Skyfall with the vintage globe-hopping action of the previous 23 movies.

If one of the most successful and long-running franchises in movie history wants to keep pumping, it's once again time to change the formula.

The result is fun, even if it's a mishmash, leaving you shaken, not stirred.

... feels like a Best of Bond compilation ... Bluenoses who once complained of Bond's indiscriminate bed-hopping need not worry. It's all Craig can do to suppress a yawn mid-seduction.

It's hard to keep a franchise that can almost count its decades on one hand fresh and relevant, but Daniel Craig's time as 007 has done just that.… More

Spectre may not be Craig's most appealing film in the franchise but it's his most successful "Bond" film despite the ridiculous nonsense… More

The Craig Daniels streak of delivering enjoyable action thrillers that are beautifully shot but have little to do with the old idea of James Bond continues.… More

Sam Mendes attempts to bring it full circle in Spectre. Following a serious and dark tone, Spectre has a story to tell; a 2 and a half hour story. Showcasing… More
