Fast-paced thriller is high on action, lighter on emotion.

I realy enjoyed spectre. The best James Bond movie ever! Too much violence for kids age 11 and less

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (14 ):
Kids say (53 ):

Time and again, the folks behind the Bond franchise prove they can put together a fine cast and (to crib from another franchise) fast and furious action. This time, Seydoux and the brilliant Waltz are added to a proven mix that includes Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris (as quartermaster Q and Moneypenny, respectively). And the many action sequences offer plenty of thrills, which almost justify the movie's overlong run time. (The opening sequence is vintage brilliant Bond.) Seydoux and Craig have great chemistry, and she gets a little bit, though not much, more to do here than Bond women of yore. Is Spectre as good as its immediate predecessor, Skyfall, which was much more emotional in many ways? Not quite, but it's still plenty of fun.
