This James Bondís new film tells the story about a cryptic message from the past who leads James Bond to Mexico City and Rome, where he meets the beautiful widow of an infamous criminal. After infiltrating a secret meeting, 007 uncovers the existence of the sinister organization SPECTRE. Needing the help of the daughter of an old nemesis, he embarks on a mission to find her. As Bond ventures toward the heart of SPECTRE, he discovers a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.

This film starts with a head of big skull in Mexico as part of Day of The Death. This skull leads to an amazing one-long-shot or we used to called it oner. Such a good choice to impress the audience at the beginning of the movie where all that we can imagine is how great this movie would be.

Monica Bellucci broke the record as the oldest Bond Girl but well she likes it better if we call her with Bond Woman according to the fact that sheís 50 years old now. Lea Seydoux the new Bond Girl or maybe we can expect her as Bondís true love, play it well plus she got a really sad eyes that can make people sad just by seeing it. But, seeing lots of awards she has under her arm such as BAFTA Rising Star Award, Palme díOr (the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival) we can tell sheís not just a girl with sad eyes.

For Daniel Craig he got really deep this time, maybe because this is his fourth performance as James Bond since 2006. All the action scenes is incredibly-awesome. Just like James Bondís last film Skyfall, Sam Mendes took the director's chair under his butt and he did a great job on directing all the casts-maybe better than Skyfall. But, despite all this great things Spectre misses the whole point of a James Bondís film where everything is unpredictable and ainít boring. Spectre is too predictable and for some point boring not like as what we expected since the first one-long-shot in the beginning and an amazing opening mixed with Sam Smithís Writingís on The Wall as the background. If this is would be the last performance for Daniel Craig as James Bond, too bad for him. We wish he can end his role as James Bond in a better film than Spectre. (Anna-Rose)
