Sunday morning, Jack, Sharon and I went to see No Time to Die at the Arden 14 and XD. This is the first time that Sharon and I have been in a movie theater since February 1, 2020.
No Time to Die is the twenty-fifth in the James Bond series produced by Eon Productions. It stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final outing as the fictional British MI6 agent James Bond.
It is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga [True Detective] from a screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge [Fleabag]. Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw [Q], Naomie Harris [Moneypenny], Jeffrey Wright [Felix Leiter], Christoph Waltz [Ernst Boifeld], Rory Kinnear [M's Chief of Staff] and Ralph Fiennes [M] reprise their roles from previous films. Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah also star in the film.
Bond has left active service with MI6. He is recruited by the CIA to find a kidnapped scientist.
I enjoyed the movie and recommend it. Overall, I give it a B+. Sharon was not happy with the ending.
The opening sequence was filmed in Matera. When we were at dinner with Holly and Van on Saturday night, they mentioned the movie and the city. They are taking a Southern Italy tour that includes Matera in October of 2022.
I have seen all of the James Bond movies. It has been long enough that I probably need to go back and rewatch a few of them.
