It’s a Spectre for Bond

MOVIE REVIEW with SHUPE SAKALA
Title: Spectre
Genre: Action, adventure, drama
Director: Sam Mendes
Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
FOR Bond movie lovers, myself included, the great news is that the Spectre is out.
Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in this new release where a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation.
Playing Bond since 2005, Craig is much loved for his Bond roles in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall.
As for Spectre, while M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, 007 peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre.
Typical of Bond films to be fast paced and action packed, get set to cringe as the drama unfolds.
Always a stand out are Bond’s cars, gadgets and girls – no wonder the budget of US$154.1m.
A must-watch, catch it at SterKinekor Cinema at the Arcades Mall.

Title: Bridge of Spies
Genre: Mystery and suspense
Director: Steven Spielberg
Time 2 hours 15 minutes
LIKE fine wine getting better with time, a cliché’ I know, but so true for Tom Hanks who stars in this must-see mystery and suspense thriller of a movie.
Much acclaimed for roles in Splash, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, You’ve Got Mail and more recently Captain Philips, the award-winning actor doesn’t let down in this role.
Hanks stars as the American attorney tasked with negotiating the release of a U-2 spy plane pilot who was shot down over Russia at the height of the Cold War in this historical drama from DreamWorks Studios.
Set in 1957, both the United States and Soviet Union employed spies against each other out of fear regarding the nuclear capabilities of one another.
Steven Spielberg and Mark E Platt produce the film written by Matt Charman.
