Rating = B

The early chase and fight scenes are terrific. Then there are some slow scenes while we wait for 007 to recover from being shot and then to get more or less fit again and to meet some new characters. Then there some fights and chases (in a tall building, in a casino, through tunnels with a train wreck, and finally a big explosive shootout in a barren landscape in Scotland). These latter fights, chases and shootouts are more conventional. There are some plot twists impacting the long history of the series: “50 Years” it says during the credits, with apparently more to come.
