On Bluray this week from director Sam Mendes and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is the next installment with the one and only Bond with “Spectre.”
James Bond (Daniel Craig) is back and this time the first bit of madness occurs during a mission in Mexico City. Going rogue to get information, everything falls apart — including a building!
Returning to London he must face M (Ralph Fiennes) who informs Bond that the new head of National Security is Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott) and his first order of business is to close down MI6. To keep tabs on Bond, Q (Ben Whishaw) inserts a tracking device so they know where the agent is at all times.
Of course that doesn’t stop 007! He begins to follow clues given to him by first speaking with Lucia (Monica Bellucci) but clues aren’t the only thing he gets. Each clue brings him a step closer to an old enemy Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) who wants his daughter Madeleine (Lea Seydoux) protected in exchange for information.
I started watching Bond movies in the 1960’s and through my formative years was introduced to Bond films going back to the 1953 original CASINO ROYALE. My father was totally into everything that Bond had to offer — cars, women and all the action and destruction the law would allow and even some the law wouldn’t.
But the history of Bond comes from creator/writer Ian Fleming who wrote stories and novels about James Bond. Daniel Craig is actor number six to play the suave 007. If anyone is wondering who my personal favorite Bond is it would be, of course, Mr. Sean Connery but there are five others to choose from.
“Spectre” has a story to tell giving us more of Bond’s mysterious past. The cast is solid and it is just Bond — James Bond. The disc includes a Bluray and Digital HD along with the Special Features of “Spectre”: Bond’s Biggest Opening Sequence, Video Blogs with director Sam Mendes, Supercars, Introducing Lea Seydoux and Monica Belluci, Action, Music, Guiness World Record and a Gallery. I do also have to say I love the films opening song as well by Sam Smith.
In the end — the answers are only a spectre away!
