Early reactions to the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die are calling the movie a fitting end to Daniel Craig’s era of 007.
Daniel Craig first appeared as James Bond in the 2005 franchise reboot, Casino Royale. The film was regarded as one of the best installments in years and was arguably the shot in the arm that the franchise needed to bring it into the 21st Century. The following films, however, were met with more mixed success.
The second Daniel Craig James Bond film, Quantum Of Solace was negatively compared to its predecessor. The third film, Skyfall, was highly praised by critics and became the highest-grossing James Bond film of all time. Its follow-up, Spectre, followed this bizarre path of the even-numbered Daniel Craig James Bond films with the movie underwhelming fans and critics. Now, after a delay that has lasted for nearly a year and a half, critics are finally seeing Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film, No Time To Die.
Like the previous odd-numbered films, the reactions to No Time To Die have, so far, been extremely positive calling it a fitting and perfect end to Daniel Craig’s era of James Bond:
Here is the plot synopsis for No Time To Die:
