Just saw it, bit on the mediocre side I hate to say. Liked it better than Skyfall but still a not doing it for me.
Starts off great but begins to drag at the midpoint and the momentum drops. In fairness I think it's just I don't give a toss for the franchise anymore and I'm being a pissy fucker. Not at all a bad film just a bit meh.

That's a shame. Waltz makes most films he's in, he's about the only reason I'd go see this in cinema. Maybe not now.

This only my opinion mate, I sure a lot of people will think its a great film. I don't regret seeing it but I think I just don't find Bond films very entertaining anymore.

I liked casino royale it was pretty slick and the story was pretty good as it goes. The last two arent so good though I fall asleep somewhat with them. It's a shame cos I like Daniel Craig in the role.

At 2.5 hours I was fearing this. It is a James Bond film, not fucking Shakespeare

Spectre hits Blu Ray tomorrow in the UK though fairly sure any pre-orders are in the post, Amazon have imported the American all-black logo poster Steelbook which is snappy but right now I've only just rounded off the Ultimate Edition DVDs for Brosnan. (was surprised they didn't do a 20th Anniversary remaster for Goldeneye which has never looked that great post-VHS and was frankly a cash grab picture wise until the last DVD.)

So if Craig has definitely quit then there will be a complete box set on the cards with the single release of Spectre and it'll be a case of move on to Blu Ray with just the last two films or double dip on Casino and Quantum.

I'd be happy for them to swap in a new Bond now. Casino Royale is one of my favourite Bond movies out of the lot but it's just as much down to the writing and change of style from your typical Brosnan affair as it was for Craig's performance. Every movie he's done since then I've just found him boring and totally lacking in charisma, he's like a blank slate who takes himself too seriously. Even when they tried to inject a bit more of the classic Bond tongue in cheek daft humour into bits of the more recent films it falls flat because Craig just can't do anything other than pout at the camera.

this part at the end...had me a tad confused...but..you know...jamesbondland

Spoiler: show
The old M15 building was wired for a controlled demolition. The building was gutted out and it was just a shell, except for a speed boat with a tank load of fuel, with the key in the ignition...just in case someone...oh...like James Bond...needed it in the last second or so. Talk about planning.

Bond arrived by boat so it was his boat.

I agree on Craig lacking in charmisa as Bond. I think the series could do with a change of lead.

Daniel Craig agrees with you. :P

The series has endured actors leaving and handing on to the next person, Brosnan just happened to want the role, couldn't get it, then it came back around and he had no TV contract in the way so it was "his Deadpool". Not sure how many other actors dream of the role and then the fans agree on the choice, (for two out of his four films anyway) Brosnan was top notch and the scripts backed him up.

The producers and Sony might as well get developing the script with the replacement in mind, the scene with new Bond driving back to MI6 in the old Aston writes itself.

Got Prime? Then Amazon are clearing out the three-film box sets for Daniel Craig on Blu Ray for £7.99 with UVs as well, assuming they will reissue the pack with Spectre included once they clear these old ones.

Since it'll take maybe up to Autumn 2018 for the next Bond I caved for that. Spectre will be on TV Xmas 2017 so the price of the single disc will drop nicely.
