On "Spectre"


From The Dispatch:
It's a bigger, louder, and more indulgent, leading to a somewhat bloated running time and a middle section that lags somewhat. While Mendes is clearly enjoying himself, the film almost becomes too ridiculous for its own good. On the other hand, the action set pieces are uniformly phenomenal (the opening sequence is especially outstanding), and Waltz is really the perfect Bond villain. Mendes may work a little too hard to tie all the previous Craig Bond films together, but the idea that everything we've seen before has been building up to this gives the film a kind of grandeur, even if it can't beat the elegant gut-punch that was “Skyfall.”
