SPECTRE- Bond is back in a solid, entertaining adventure

James Bond returns to the big screen three years after Skyfall, the excellent last entry to the franchise, in SPECTRE, which is once again directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and starring Daniel Craig as Bond. In his fourth outing Craig has Bond down fairly well, giving him brutality when needed, able to toss off a quip without being too jokey, and even able to show a bit of emotion when called for. Skyfall did that last bit better when James returned to his old home in Scotland and in response to Judi Dench’s M being killed. But SPECTRE does bring out a brutal Bond in some of its sequences as well as a more playful Bond in having him toss off some rather amusing one liners.

Going to try and have a review up for at least the single player and touching hopefully on the zombie and multiplayer modes within the next couple of days. Stay tuned.
