We’ve been waiting what seems like forever for this latest installment in the Bond franchise, with the films original release date back in March of 2020. After three postponements we finally get to see Daniel Craig’s swansong as James Bond and it’s a total rollercoaster from start to finish. Originally just called Bond 25, ‘No Time To Die’ is pretty much everything we all wanted it to be. Running at 2hrs 43mins, it’s an epic and long old movie but you needn’t worry about losing interest in the story at any point. Everything that happens happens for a reason and it all adds up at the end to an epic finale.
Definitely go and see this on a big screen (IMAX if you feel like pushing the boat out) but just make sure you have a wee beforehand. You’re not going to want to miss a minute of this colossal movie that we’ve waited so long to see.
