Is James Bond Hot? – A Review of Spectre

I was surprised when I found out that Spectre has a 7.3 on IMDb regarding the terrible job they did about the story line. Then after couple weeks later I found out the score has dropped from 7.3 to 7.1, which makes me feel that I am a normal person again.

As most of the 80’s, James Bond is a legend of our childhood. For me he is the perfect hero among all the movies. He is handsome, brave, smart and funny (if you can get his cold jokes). And Pierce Brosnan brought all of them to the screen.

Before Daniel Craig’s James Bond, if someone asks me do I think James Bond is hot, I won’t hasitate for a second to say yes. But now, I don’t know. James Bond is no longer the perfect one who solves everything without getting a scratch, who gets all the hearts of those pretty women, or who is so smart that he can predict every danger.

I do not understand why since Daniel Craig’s James Bond the movie trying to give a fuller story to make James Bond become a real human being. They make James Bond fell in love, break his heart, even make him weak and stupid sometimes. He is still a legend, but a sad one. The one who lost every loved ones and the one who is old and weak.

They should call the movie “the life of a retired spy”. And please give the perfect James Bond back!

Ps: I am not discussing Daniel Craig’s acting. I am talking about the story lines of the recent James Bond movies.

Ps: The sex scene of Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci) and James is not just a little odd and sudden. After all Daniel and Monica’s ages add together are nearly 100.
