He likes his shaken, she likes hers dirty

A day later than the rest of the world, I have now seen Spectre. I went with my mother, who I had also seen Skyfall with.

I will try and keep this as spoiler-free as possible!

My main reaction after the film was that whilst this is a ‘good’ Bond film, it was no Skyfall. Skyfall was such an incredible film that it would have been hard for anything to follow it. After Quantum I had such low expectations and was totally surprised. However, Spectre was always going to be tough.

All the actors were good. I loved Madeleine the feisty, self-sufficient Bond girl and ‘C’ the head of the newly merged MI5 and MI6. M, Q and Moneypenny were all super, especially Q. Christoph Waltz was good, but no Javier Bardem. Such a hard act to follow.

The obligatory silky dress.

The only disappointment was that nothing was a shock or a surprise. The plot played out exactly how you expected it to, maybe that’s what makes a Bond film safe and why Skyfall worked so well.

It was a good film, lots of action, lots of humour and a fabulous opening sequence. Definitely give it a watch if you’re a Bond fan!
