  • No Time to Die (2021)

    Anyone looking forward to this film as much as I am?



    Also the last outing for Daniel Craig as James Bond 007.

      I was till someone spiilt the ending . this should be a crime by now . Rami Malek is excellent .
      They did throw everything at this we Bond fans love in this last outing . And the nod to Bonds classic past very touching .

        I think in this one, Daniel Craig has more lines than he had in all his previous Bonds together.

          Saw this last night and a lot of bonds are gonna dislike this quite a lot I think.

          This is not the film I was expecting to see Mr Bond.

          If I had to rate it out of 10 for a Bond film then I have to put it at hmmmmmm 4 or 5 out of 10.

          So many questions and not enough answers imo.

            This film has reached the cinemas here in Canada. The reviews, mixed. I put telly on last night for the news. Critics were giving their reviews of this film. Mixed reviews. This commentator said the film, almost 3 hours long, lacked action scenes. Too much talking. Not the usual Bond film that viewers would expect. He gave it two stars. Cinemas are opening up, will I venture out to the cinema to view this film? No, I will wait for the DVD release. Interesting, who will be the next James Bond? According to Danial Craig, this is the last Bond film he intends to star in.

              I might watch it one day when it appears on Netflix or some other streaming service. I can take or leave Bond films.

                Liked you, I never took much interest in the Bond films. The first Bond film, 1962, Dr No, I did not care for. The next Bond film, From Russia With Love, did not interest me. You Live Only Twice ,I did enjoy. I very much enjoyed Donald Pleasence performance of Earnest Blofeld. Over the years I did enjoy Daniel Craig’s performance of Bond.

              The main problem with No Time to Die is that from Casino Royale onwards there is a continuation storyline to the present one (So consider the Craig one one as a 5 part mini series ) and in No Time to Die somewhere in the middle of this film is they forgot to include a lot of storytelling (It took 6 writers to do this film's screenplay and it showed) so much basic Bond stuff is missing that you normally get in the previous Bond's and they settled way too much on the love story ala Mills & Boon style ) (a love story in a Bond movie? Noooooooooo ) so that is why I gave it a 5/10

                " Lacked action scenes" ????? I think that reviewer must have wandered into the wrong cinema. That together with "Too much talking" would suggest that the aforesaid reviewer is a fifteen year-old who thinks that 'Transformers' is the best film of all time.

                  I have never seen Transformers. From film clips on the telly, newspaper write ups, not my cup of tea. Have no desire to view this film.

                  I really don't know what to say.

                I have not seen this film as of yet. So I have no comment. The critics, mixed reviews. Ticket sales in North America have netted around 31 million dollars, so far. I am just stating what the critics have said.

                  I saw it on the day of release and thought it was excellent. It may not stand up to scrutiny in terms of continuity from previous entries, but there are certainly mentions of characters from previous films and there’s no harm in having a love story in a Bond film - my favourite of all is OHMSS and this instalment leans heavily on that particular film. As for lacking action scenes, I don’t really know what to say - the opening 25 minutes (before you even get to the opening titles) are full on and there are plenty of other action scenes throughout. It’s a very long film but it certainly didn’t drag and I didn’t look at my watch once.

                    OHMSS, I remember that film. Diana Rigg was in it.

                  I view this dvd yesterday. Now you may wonder how I obtain this DVD? It was a promotional copy. Throughout the film, on the bottom of the picture, a caption, property of MGM, for promotional use only. Did I enjoy the film, yes. A bit long. Plenty of action scenes.

                    Loads of films have action scenes simply to hide the main plot and NTtD had chunks of stuff missing from it,The beginning was brilliant loved it and in the middle it went somewhere else and the audience I saw it with wanted to know where it went and THAT ending was so uneven for a Bond film

                      The DVD is estimated to be launched on the 14th January 2022, I think I'll wait for it, I 've not seen it yet, the nearest multiplex insists on mask-wearing when seated, I don't fancy that for the best part of three hours, not without a break.

                        I heard it might be released on DVD before Christmas or Boxing Day. I think a lot will depend upon the success of this film in the cinemas.

                      I agree with Mariocki. I saw it a ten days or so ago in a packed cinema and it was excellent. The review that said it lacked action scenes? Well, narabdela has dealt wit that more succinctly than I can. Ridiculous. Also ridiculous is the claim that this is some new ‘woke’ Bond. It’s the Bond of always: very cool, very committed, very violent and ultimately very alone. Even when he is with someone.
                      Highly recommended.
                      No spoilers, of course, but it gives you lots to discuss afterwards...
