THE DAILY MAIL
'[No Time To Die is] an explosive, tense, daring, and most of all surprising adventure, toying with our preconceptions about the world's greatest secret agent and exploring his personal life more intimately than ever before.'
Craig's final film as the diva of British intelligence is an epic barnstormer, with the script delivering pathos, action, drama, camp comedy, heartbreak, macabre horror, and outrageously silly old-fashioned action in a movie which calls to mind the world of Dr No on his island.
Cary Joji Fukunaga's extravagantly satisfying, bulgingly proportioned last chapter to the Craig era, throws almost everything there is left to throw at 007 the series can come up with.
It might have taken its time getting him, but No Time to Die confirms that whoever the next James Bond is, they've got some big shoes to fill.
In his final turn as 007, Craig exits the franchise with a bang – as well as many crashes and several wallops. The stunts are simply spectacular, with one particular scene involving a motorbike in Italy that will leave you watching through splayed fingers in exhilarating fear.
After Spectre, he famously said he'd rather slash his wrists than play Bond again. Instead, with the help of a talented team, he's taken a razor blade to the idea of Bond. Craig bows out with his head held high. Way to go.
For the most part though, and with so much at stake thanks to Covid decimating cinema, No Time To Die producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson should be applauded for taking some bold risks. The gobsmacking ending, in fact, may be the biggest in Bond history.
While Craig is a consummate action star, director Cary Joji Fukunaga's more radical vision of James Bond is fleeting, his film a rotating sideshow of old characters and plot points
This film does things that no Bond film has ever done, and despite relying heavily on tropes that feel not only familiar but comforting, it is the unfamiliar things it does that make this such an exciting entry.
Spectacularly well shot, wonderfully dark villains (Rami Malek's performance is faultless) and perhaps more depth than before, perhaps Bond really can save the day - for cinema in the short term at least.
No Time to Die is a terrific movie: an up-to-the-minute, down-to-the-wire James Bond thriller with a satisfying neo-classical edge. It's an unabashedly conventional Bond film that's been made with high finesse and just the right touch of soul, as well as enough sleek surprise to keep you on edge.
