Film: Spectre

Standard

12002410_1134539806560929_7647752797114155043_oFor my blog, October was Bond month in anticipation and excitement for the new film in the franchise, Spectre. As you have probably gathered, I am a massive fan of James Bond, and have been watching the entire franchise start to finish over the summer in preparation. So… on Halloween, I went with my father to the cinema.

The opening scene is fantastic! I loved it so much. I loved James Bond in his outfit and the way the camera followed him throughout the shot and into the action. Without giving too many spoilers these first scenes were very well crafted including all of the shots and stunts… Yes I am a Media Student and yes good cinematography is something that pleases me.

The main characters, pretty much the same as the past three 007 films, are just as endearing as ever and becoming more of a united front and a close family. Additionally, the villain is as intriguing as ever and made the narrative very enjoyable (especially if you’re a fan of the old Bond films). All of these characters, of course, were played by an amazing cast including: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott, Rory Kinnear and many more…

The storyline summary can be seen as follows; ‘A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE’. (Source)

With little more to say than that I really enjoyed this film, I will leave you with the trailer and hope that you go on to watch and enjoy Spectre too.
