Bond has left active service and is trying to enjoy a quiet life in Jamaica when his old CIA friend Felix Leiter asks for help in rescuing a kidnapped scientist. That puts them on the trail of a new villain armed with the ability to target people by their DNA.
This is Daniel Craig’s last turn as 007, his fourth overall, and the 25th official Bond film. Billie Eilish did the theme song for it.
Rami Malek is the bad guy and the returning cast includes Jeffrey Wright as Leiter, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Ms. Moneypenny, and Christoph Waltz as “Spectre” villain Blofeld.
As for Bond girls . . . Léa Seydoux returns as Bond’s love interest from “Spectre”, Madeleine Swann . . . Ana de Armas plays a rookie MI6 agent helping Bond . . . and Lashana Lynch joins the cast as a new 007 agent who replaced him.
Make sure you hit the restroom and the snack bar first, because this is the longest Bond movie ever.
It runs a total of 2 hours and 43 minutes.
