An Honest Trailer for No Time to Die

No Time to Die was the 25th film in the James Bond franchise, and the fifth Bond film starring Daniel Craig as secret agent 007. It's also his final Bond movie, which Screen Junkies agrees is enough, since Craig's Bond was just way too serious, emotional, and depressing. Too realistic, actually, even with the over-the-top gunfights, explosions, and violence. That said, No Time to Die had a respectable run, becoming the most lucrative American film so far in 2021. Yes, it's time for a new Bond, but please, not Chris Pratt.

Bond is not divorced, he is widowed. He only married once (see "On Her Majesty's Secret Service").

The ending of this movie reminded me of a couple of Ian Fleming's books--the ending of one, Bond got blown out of a seaside building when it exploded; the next one described how a fisherwoman rescued him and nursed him back to health.

We will see if this is what they will do with this movie and the next.
