“007: No Time to Die” can be said to be the most troubled work in the history of 007.
The film was constantly changing directors and screenwriters before filming started, and after filming started, filming was stopped and postponed due to various accidents.
When everything was done, the “007: No Time to Die” started painting but there was an epidemic again. It became the first “postponed” blockbuster.
Because “007: No Time to Die” is the last golden egg of MGM, it insists not to be released on the Internet platform, which leads to the continuous postponement of “007: No Time to Die”.
In the end, MGM had no choice but to sell “007: No Time to Die” to Amazon.
“007: No Time to Die” has been produced since 2016, and finally waited five years before it was officially released.
It will soon become another urban legend with “The New Mutants” in 2020, and it really corresponds to the movie’s title “No Time to Die”.
Maybe it was wrong, because the delay was too long, “007: No Time to Die” actually drove the audience’s expectations.
Sure enough, “007: No Time to Die” set a pre-sale record in the UK as soon as it went on sale.
The previous work “Spectre” was disappointing, but the movie was a surprise.
“007: No Time to Die” is even the best chapter in the “Five Steps” by Daniel Craig.
“007: No Time to Die” writes a perfect ending for the legendary 007.
As the first 007 series filmed with IMAX, the action scenes of the two scenes of “007: No Time to Die” filmed with IMAX lenses make people feel like being on the scene, which is an immersive experience.
Christopher Nolan did not accept the film at the time, instead he went to shoot the science fiction film “Tenet”.
If he shoots “007: No Time to Die” with an IMAX machine, I wonder if the image of the movie is more shocking?
After James played against Spectre, he went on vacation with Madeleine, hoping to forget the past through this journey.
But before the holiday was over, James was attacked by a mysterious man, and the boss behind the scenes pointed out that Madeleine was betrayed.
James retired and lived the simplest life.
But the past haze still haunts him, the secrets of Madeleine, and the entanglement between him and Spectre surfaced again, and he was forced to move out again.
I didn’t think of this action, but it had to pay a heavy price…
Although “Spectre” did not perform well, it was predicted that the work was a prequel to “007: No Time to Die”.
Although it is said that there are varying degrees of coherence in the old works, it is rare to see that almost five of Daniel Craig are related to each other.
And this time there are a lot of new attempts, which can even be said to break the conventions of previous 007 movies.
“007: No Time to Die” writes the perfect ending for the most fleshed and bloody 007 in history, and can even reverse the decline of the previous game.
1.The opening action chase scene of the movie is presented with an IMAX lens, and the image is breathtaking
Technically speaking, the audience must be mentally prepared before watching it. The movie can be said to be the least action scene among the 25 “007” movies.
If compared in terms of duration, the movie has even fewer action scenes than Daniel Craig’s first “Casino Royale”.
But “007: No Time to Die” is the first work shot with an IMAX camera, and it is also the first 007 to have a 3D version.
Movies shot with IMAX certified machines, such as “The Suicide Squad”, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, “Dnue”, etc., have stunning visual effects.
And “007: No Time to Die” was shot with a real IMAX camera.
Coupled with the fact that there are a lot of real-life action scenes instead of CG in the film, the effect is almost as wonderful as Christopher Nolan’s IMAX works.
The two main action scenes of “007: No Time to Die” are under the IMAX full-screen camera, as if they were on the scene.
The opening scene of the chase scene of the ancient Italian city is the best IMAX lens has been used in recent years.
The IMX lens not only makes the ancient Italian city as beautiful as an IMAX documentary.
Moreover, the sharp action scenes of the film are presented in the full scene of IMAX, which makes people very happy to watch.
Although the IMAX lens is not used in the entire work, the 40-minute IMAX image is absolutely breathtaking.
Although the 3D effect does not have much effect, under the giant Laser IMAX screen, the depth of field effect in the details of “007: No Time to Die” is all distinct.

This is by no means comparable to the 3D effect of simple subtitles.
If you want to watch exaggerated action scenes, or even chase battles like the previous 007 “Around the World”, “007: No Time to Die” is definitely not there.
Even if a typical “Evil Doctor’s Fortress” appeared in the end, “007: No Time to Die” did not hit the sky like 007.
In fact, the best part of “007: No Time to Die” is not the action scenes, but the story.
You can think of “007: No Time to Die” as a piece of popcorn entertainment.
But it has a lot of literary drama in its 165 minutes. The amount of information in the story and the complexity of the plot are by no means a battle between good and evil in the 007 series of movies.
“007: No Time to Die” as Daniel Craig’s last appearance in 007, this is also a summary of his growth path.
2.The ending of the movie is not only shocking, but also a perfect summary of 007
From the beginning of “Casino Royale”, he was deeply hurt by the woman he loved the most in his life, and he didn’t believe in women ever since.
Therefore, there was no obvious “007 girl” in the subsequent “Quantum of Solace” and “Skyfall”, but M became a half Bond girl.
It wasn’t until the last time “Spectre” that he stepped into love again, but he met a woman with a secret.
The opening action fight this time is not just the traditional setting of the “007 series”: a big fight before the opening film. Under the pleasing action scene, a few strokes have clearly explained what he wants to forget the past. Favorite.
But how the pain in the past made him reluctant to believe in women, he could already foresee that this was originally a journey of healing.
Madeleine is also a flesh and blood Bond girl, carrying heavy secrets.
She also has a relationship with James Bond.
Such a striking scene is not only a prologue in the opening action scene, it is more like a story of a relationship.
The relationship between the two continues to reverse, which also laid an important foreshadowing for the subsequent plot.
Looking at it all the way, I think this is a 007 movie that is different from “Casino Royale” and “007: Crisis in the Sky”.
The last part of “007: No Time to Die” detonates “shock bombs” one after another, which is enough to make people stunned.
These are probably technical treatments that have never appeared in the 007 series of movies. Who knows that the ending is still very shocking and stupefying.
The ending of “007: No Time to Die” is very touching, and it can be said to be one of the most shocking endings in movie history.
It not only completely reversed the entire story and the routine of the 25 007 series of movies, but also wrote the perfect end to the most flesh-and-blood 007 in the history.
At the same time, he also made the best summary of his story. His affection, his impulse, and his rebellion all made him come to this end.
He is no longer a simple and suave agent, but also a man with affection.
For the “replacement” of actors outside the screen, the reasons for his “retirement” must also be explained on the screen.
In addition to the protagonist of 007, the script of “007: No Time to Die” is extremely ambitious.
It intends to summarize the worldviews of the five 007s, and then open a new story, linking a group of tangled characters.
Generally, watching 007 movies are simple straight lines.
But after watching the movie for 120 minutes, I still haven’t figured out what the conspiracy is, and what the group of people are asking for making it so complicated.
Although it is not the first time that 007 has to face a series of ambitious scientists.
But this time I encountered such a complicated scientific theory, it really made people feel that the movie was so big.
This “big drama” may somewhat complicate the simple story, and the plot is not without loopholes.
But the script of “007: No Time to Die” is very clever to link up the characters and put an end to the unfinished things at the top.
In the end, this group of characters not only had their own endings or secretly laid out the world view of Part 26.
Even complex scientific theories have a shocking ending.
“007: No Time to Die” also fastened a series of branches, and made a summary of the legend of “Spectre” that was not covered last time.
Although there are not many action scenes in “007: No Time to Die”, it is not a big one.
But every time the plot reaches a dull place, it will present a refreshing action scene.
For example, the chasing in the fog forest in the middle section and the stair battle in the last section, which add a lot of sensory stimulation to “007: No Time to Die”.
Director Kerry Fukunaga may not be a well-known film director, nor has he made any masterpieces.
But “007: No Time to Die” has a flexible schedule for rhythm, which is really impressive.
I thought “Skyfall” was already the best work of the 007 series of movies in recent years.
Who knows that “007: No Time to Die” is excellent in every aspect, and it is definitely the best one among the five.
3.Ana de Armas is really amazing, the action scene is staged in a gorgeous dress, it is really eye-catching
Daniel Craig’s first appearance in “Casino Royale” may not be optimistic.
Unexpectedly, he became more and more engaged, and this time he made a summary of his best acting skills.
From the beginning to the end, he fully played the growth of a role.
He exquisitely presented the soft side of his heart, and there is no lack of 007’s consistent humor, which is the most hierarchical play of the five.
Rami Malek plays a villain with few roles.
But he has a strong sense of pressure every time he plays, with a “sinister” interpretation, and there is no need to engrave the word “bad” on his forehead.
There is also an ulterior pain behind the “bad guy”. He successfully inherited the performances of the three acting villains, Christoph Waltz and Javier BardemMads Mikkelsen.
Actresses Léa Seydoux and Ana de Armas, the two 007 girls’ performances are equally eye-catching.
Especially Ana de Armas’s lovely and gorgeous performance is absolutely radiant, but it’s a pity that there are too few scenes.
All in all, “007: No Time to Die” is definitely the best chapter in the five-part series, and it also makes a perfect summary for the entire 007 series.
“007: No Time to Die” not only made Daniel Craig the best reason to leave, but also wrote the most touching conclusion for him.
Although there are not many action scenes in the whole “007: No Time to Die”, the rhythm scheduling is still just right.
The two important action scenes of “007: No Time to Die” are presented with IMAX lenses, which are even more breathtaking and immersive.
Although the story of the film is complicated, the relationship between the characters is very delicate and very follow-up, and the plot has no shortage of amazing turns.
At the last moment, the audience may even feel that the arrangement is very clever, it is touching, and a bit of excitement.
Looking at a 007 who accompanied our generation to grow up, he finally grew up and finally let go.
No matter how many 007s there are in the future, this moving ending will definitely remain in the minds of the audience forever.
This “007: No Time to Die” really made people wait too long, but these six years are definitely worth the wait.
