Far from spectacular in spite of 2 rivetting action set pieces

Spectre, the latest Bond movie is not the best but shot in extravagance and high on sleekness and style.Director Sam Mendes opens the film with a spectacular scene in Mexico at a carnival where a helicopter chase and fight above the brimming vibrant colour and music is more like poetic violence.Close to the intermission a super sexy car chase with narrow escapes on cobbled roads is high octane stuff.Barring these two spectacular stunt sequences, the latest Bond film is more talk heavy and hard to decipher.The talent pool of acting here is far better than before..Lea Seydoux is suitably arresting and confident as she struts her hourglass figure in a champagne gown in a posh train restaurant and even fights with ease.Monica Belluci is wasted.Christopher Waltz, Ralph Fiennes ,Dave Batuista, Ben Wishlaw and Naomi Harris have more meat in their roles.Waltz and Fiennes particularly leave a mark.
Now for our leading man.007 .Craig in his well tailored and fitted suits is quite a sight for the sore eyes.The gadgets, guns, gals and cars make the film racier and edgier.Quite worth a one time watch.

Spectre Review: I guess, this could be the worst bond movie ever. Heard, this is Craig’s last appearance as Bond, but better ask Director Sam Mendes not to direct Bond movies any more. I suppose, he is on mission to kill this Bond brand. In his last “Skyfall” (though it was not Bond formatted), but still movie was captivating. But this Spectre seems neither to be Nostalgia nor Action (means good stunt sequences) nor Romance nor great one-liners nor anything. The film opens with brilliant visual spectacle of Mexican festival with astounding music. (smooth one take shot lasts almost 5 minutes) and that’s it; after that, every scene of this movie is predictable and doesn’t let you glue even if you want to. One good thing about this movie is, exotic locations shot mostly at night. Story is 007 is grounded for his irresponsible actions and politically no more double OO operations; so, Bond on his own to find mission first and to accomplish too. In fact, by the time climax arrived, audience did not even bother to care who’s killing who. Except Craig, exotic locations – nothing great in this movie. Ironic to Hollywood, this is two and half hours movie.

Goofs:
Character Error
Everyone pronounces Allesandro Cremona's character, Marco Sciarra, as Skee-ara, it should be pronounced Shee-ara, In Italian the hard c sound would need a spelling of Schiarra. Although an English speaker might make this mistake it's repeated by others.

Continuity
In the moments after Bond & M's Jaguar XJ is rammed during the drive to stop Denbigh, the rear right side window of the following Land Rover Discovery is shot out as Moneypenny & co escape, showering Q with glass. In the next scene, they pick up M in the same Discovery, but the glass in the window only contains a small bullet hole and the glass is intact.

Errors in Geography
In the final scene on Westminster Bridge/Parliament Square we see a London bus No.15 with the destination "Trafalgar Square" showing on the front. Although the No.15 bus route does occasionally terminate at Trafalgar Square its route is nowhere near Westminster Bridge or Parliament Square running as it does from St.Paul's along Fleet Street, Strand, Trafalgar Square and then up Haymarket, Regent Street, Oxford Street and out to Paddington.

Errors in Geography
In the Rome chase, Bond takes a right in front of the Sistine Chapel, and then a left, onto Via del Mascherino. At the end of this road he takes a left and he should be on the road around the Piazza del Risorgimento. However, instead of being there he is by the river, at least 800 metres away from where he should be and facing the opposite direction (heading east instead of west).

Miscellaneous
Lesioning the fusiform gyrus could result in face blindness, but the drill that Blofeld uses goes nowhere near the gyrus - it in fact drills through the mandible and would've entered Bond's mouth. At best doing nothing, at worst giving bond a wicked bad sinusitis or meningitis.

Miscellaneous
A Range Rover used in the Austrian alps chase has a license plate starting with "IL" which does stand for "Innsbruck Land" in Tyrol. However, the plate does show the emblem of Vienna instead of a Tyrolean one.

Miscellaneous
During the car chase in the mountains of Tirol/ Austria you can clearly see the license plates on the cars. Although they show the area code IL (Innsbruck Land) which is in Tirol, there is the federal state emblem of Vienna (Capital and a separate federal state of Austria). Tirol and Vienna are therefor different federal states. Each has a separate emblem and they are not even close/next to each other.

Miscellaneous
When Madeline Swann exits the safe house and approaches Bond (as well as in the aerial shot immediately after), Trafalgar Square can be seen in the background. To the left of the square, a building flying an American flag is visible. In reality, this building is Canada House, the home of the Canadian High Commission in London; it only flies the Canadian flag.

Miscellaneous
Behind the police cordon on Westminster Bridge which shows County Hall to the left, a double decker bus with the number 15 and destination Trafalgar Square can be seen. The number 15 route does indeed on some turns terminate in Trafalgar Square but does not go south of the river, least of all past County Hall. This service runs along the Strand.

Miscellaneous
In the escape from the Spectre HQ, the MD500 helicopter is one of the only helicopters flown from the left-hand seat, Bonds flies from the right, this is correct for most other rotary craft.

Miscellaneous
In the train, Bond and Madeleine order dirty martinis (a break from his normal routine), but when the drinks arrive, they are perfectly clear. Dirty martinis contain olive juice, so they would be cloudy.

Revealing Mistakes
In the fight scene on the train a large sliding door is opened in what appears to be a carriage with parcels and train stock. In several outside shots of the train all the carriages are passenger carriages with no sliding doors in shot.

Revealing Mistakes
When Madeleine is on the bed telling James in French there are 2 liars, the subtitles say 'to' when her french Say deux menteurs. The correct subtitle should be Two Liars.

Continuity
When Blofeld's helicopter crashes into the bridge in London, Bond's speedboat immediately goes to the river bank and he runs onto the bridge. Somehow, the police are already there, taping off the scene.

Continuity
When Blofeld's helicopter crashes into the bridge in London and he tries to flee, he uses his left foot to kick open helicopter's door. In the next scene Blofeld is dragging his left foot as it has large open wound.
Trivia:
Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David Yates, Danny Boyle, Shane Black, Christopher Nolan, and Nicolas Winding Refn, were all considered to direct before Sam Mendes agreed to return after directing Skyfall (2012).

Daniel Craig said that it was getting harder and harder to get fit for his shirtless scenes as Bond at the age of 47 saying, "Am I getting my kit off in this movie? Of course I'm getting my kit off! I seem to be bare-chested throughout this film again! Yes, I've been working out for six months. I work myself to death' to get fit. No secret method involved, just sheer hard graft. It's getting harder I will admit, but such is life. I'll keep going as long as I'm physically able."

SPECTRE in the earlier Bond films stood for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. SPECTRE has also been known as the Special Executor for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. James Bond creator Ian Fleming originally had the acronym meaning slightly more simply the Special Executive for Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.

In December 2014, nine high-end Land Rover Discoverys, including five customized Range Rover Sports, valued at about UK £630,000 (US $1 million) set for filming in the Austrian Alps, were stolen from a parking lot in Neuss (near Düsseldorf/Germany).

Italian model and actress Monica Bellucci previously auditioned for a Bond Girl role prior to being cast in Spectre (2015). In 1997, in an interview with 'Playboy' magazine, former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan said that Bellucci had screen-tested for one of the two leading Bond Girl roles, as Paris Carver, in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), the part in the end being cast with American actress Teri Hatcher. Brosnan said: "Monica Bellucci is a ravishing beauty - a gorgeous, gorgeous woman. She screen-tested to be a Bond girl a while back, and the fools said no. Teri Hatcher stole the day instead".

James Bond's new car in the film is an Aston Martin DB10. The CEO of Aston Martin tweeted that it is "strictly created for James Bond and strictly limited to ten cars only. It is the most exclusive car of the DB series ever." New styling direction has also been taken, with a more angular look than has ever been witnessed on an Aston Martin.

Fourth appearance by Daniel Craig as James Bond. Speculation around the time of the release of this movie has amounted as to whether Craig will do a fifth film. Craig's fourth appearance as James Bond ties with Pierce Brosnan's number of appearances in the Bond film franchise. Together, they tie for the actor with the third most number of appearances in a Bond film, after Roger Moore with seven, and Sean Connery with six, but the latter also ties with Moore if one counts the unofficial Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983).

First Bond film not to feature the iconic trumpet playing of Derek Watkins. Since Dr. No (1962), Mr Watkins had featured on the soundtrack of every single Bond film until his passing away shortly after the release of Skyfall (2012).

At age fifty during filming and title launch and age fifty-one when Spectre (2015) was released, Italian actress Monica Bellucci becomes the oldest ever actress to play a leading Bond Girl role beating Honor Blackman who was thirty-eight years old when she starred in Goldfinger (1964). Bellucci was born in 1964, the same year that Goldfinger (1964) was released.

English actor Gary Oldman was approached for the role of Franz Oberhauser but he was unwilling to commit to six months production worldwide. In the end, the part was cast with Christoph Waltz.

Reportedly, director Christopher Nolan was being seriously considered to direct this film until Sam Mendes decided to come back for another film. Associate producer Gregg Wilson has said: "Christopher Nolan would be a 'dream' choice for a future Bond director. We would of course be interested to have a discussion with him. We would like to do the same type of movie. It would be a dream to be with Nolan. But we always have an open mind when it comes to directors."

This film reunites actor Ben Whishaw and Andrew Scott, who previously played lovers in the play "Cock".

Third Bond movie featuring actor Jesper Christensen who appeared in both Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008). Skyfall (2012) is the only Daniel Craig Bond film that Christensen has not appeared in.

Spectre (2015) is being released in the same 2015 year as such other big spy espionage films as Spy (2015), Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014), Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015).

Actors Ralph Fiennes (M), Rory Kinnear (Tanner) and Ben Whishaw (Q), all now Mi6 regular characters in the James Bond film franchise , have all portrayed "Hamlet" on the stage, on Broadway, The National Theatre and The Old Vic respectively.

Spectre (2015) is the first ever Bond film whose full title is an acronym - its use in the series' earlier entries in the franchise was as SPECTRE (or S.P.E.C.T.R.E). However, the earlier James Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), has often been abbreviated by the acronym "OHMSS" (aka O.H.M.S.S).

Reportedly, actor Dave Bautista had publicly declared himself to be a big James Bond fan years prior to him being cast as henchman Mr. Hinx in Spectre (2015).

The first James Bond movie to feature snow, ice and skiing action and settings since Die Another Day (2002) and The World Is Not Enough (1999). Spectre (2015) is the first ever Daniel Craig James Bond film to feature him as the character in such icy and snowy locales.

Screenwriter John Logan was reportedly commissioned to write scripts for this movie as well as Bond 25 at the same time.

The criminal organization SPECTRE has appeared in such earlier James Bond films such as the unofficial Never Say Never Again (1983), and the official franchise films Dr. No (1962), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), From Russia with Love (1963), Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969).

Christoph Waltz is the third Oscar winning actor to play a Bond villain. Previous two were, Christopher Walken in A View to a Kill (1985) and Javier Bardem in Skyfall (2012).

Before Christoph Waltz was cast as the villain Chiwetel Ejiofor was considered for the role.

At one point, the story outline was a well-guarded top secret - the contents known only to actor Daniel Craig, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson and a few other select personnel at EON Productions.

Reportedly, this Bond film and Bond 25 will apparently not be based on any original Ian Fleming James Bond story.

Sam Mendes and John Logan came up with the main concept for the plot together, according to former Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who ended up returning to the series to do re-writes on the screenplay, because the inner sanctum of the production (the star, director and producers) were not allegedly satisfied with the script.

The first Bond film to be shot with anamorphic lenses since Die Another Day (2002), as well as director Sam Mendes' first experience shooting in the format.

Gary Oldman was approached for the role of Oberhauser, but he was unwilling to commit to six months production worldwide.

At fifty years of age, Italian actress Monica Bellucci becomes the oldest ever actress to play a leading Bond Girl role beating Honor Blackman who was thirty-seven years old when she starred in Goldfinger (1964). Bellucci was born in 1964, the same year that Goldfinger (1964) was released.

Despite Skyfall (2012) being shot entirely in digital, and rumors that Bond movies would be shot digitally from then on, this and Bond 25 will be shot on 35mm film.

This film will be Daniel Craig's fourth appearance as James Bond. Craig is also contracted for a fifth turn in Bond 25.

Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith, Rihanna, Sia, and Ed Sheeran have all been on a list of singers to sing the James Bond theme song.

The movie's early publicity poster is predominantly black with a ballistics bullet-hole mark - a subtle version of the original SPECTRE octopus in the shattering glass. This is evocative of the death of Tracy Bond, James Bond's wife, who was shot by Blofeld in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969).

Financing and distribution arrangements for this picture and Bond 25 have been frequently being reported together suggesting that development of the next two Bond films are being set up for a two-year cycle.
