Based on what we’ve seen thus far (and the return of Jesper Christensen’s Mr. White), Spectre looks like it is aiming to serve as the culmination of the previous three Bond films starring Craig. Skyfall worked largely because of how its events have personal resonance for Bond, and this new installment appears to continue that trend – building up this iteration of classic Bond mythology in the process.
That being said, Spectre runs the risk of disappointing moviegoers if its mysteries (and especially James Bond’s “secret”) don’t live up to the hype. After all, the third act of Skyfall – which centered on the titular reveal – is widely considered one of its weak points. Skyfall director Sam Mendes and his screenwriters John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade may be aiming to offer a compelling new take on the Spectre organization with the latest 007 movie entry, but whether or not it will be able to stand alongside the Bond series’ best-regarded Spectre adventures (like On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) is another matter. Here’s hoping that they’re up to the task.
