Following a serious and dark tone, Spectre has a story to tell; a 2 and a half hour story. Showcasing elements of the previous 3 Bond installments, the film takes its time reaching the finish line. Plot details lack sufficient explanation, while the film manages to draw out other segments. The action is as expected, ranging across all types of vehicles and manages to come in at appropriate times to lift the spirits of the slower story-line pieces. Daniel Craig needs know introduction. Portraying Bond is a cake walk at this point. Christoph Waltz makes the most of his minutes and Lea Seydoux fills the role of Bond girl nicely. Spectre delivers on some areas and under delivers on others. Ultimately, it is a watchable piece of work.
