The character assassination of Blofeld. Revealing him to be the sole cause for the sum of Bond's suffering over the past years sounds like it could be a great idea, but it was all so contrived and poorly communicated to the extent of being awful. It's too bad that a story arc which started out so strong in Skyfall turned out to be more or less dead on arrival.
>dull action scenes (car chase and plane scene in particular had zero impact, James didn't even seem to care) >references above originality >Belluci has literally 5 minutes of screentime >Waltz is criminally underused >retarted villain reveal that was supposed to be a twist, but everyone already expected it >villain with absolutely ridiculous motivation >movie doesn't explain exactly how Blofeld was behind the deaths of Bond's loved ones >Bond girl loves him after knowing him for 2 days >same old technology vs human agents theme that we already saw in Skyfall >Bond barely breaks a sweat during his escape after getting drilled in the brain >unmemorable third act
The acting was good, particularly Craig, the movie itself looked beautiful and they mostly succeeded with humor. It's not completely shit, but a major disappointment.
>>64515249 It had all the elements of a Bond film, in fact the whole time was "I have seen this before". Maybe its getting old. A reboot that would keep Bond within the Era the books take place, kinda U.N.C.L.E like might be nice.
>>64515249 Visually, everything. It was a good looking film, sounded great too. Only criticism to sound would be the theme by Sam Smith, weakest bond theme in years.
Character wise, Waltz was so criminally underused. His whole motivation of "muh daddy loved you more" was fucking weak and more of a throw away line than a true driving reason behind everything that's happened to Bond.
Bautista was bretty gud though, think he played the big dangerous henchman role perfectly, would have liked to see him return if the creators are returning to the old bond movie style.
