I get the "it's a better James Bond" critics, or at least up to a certain point - if you ignore the core topic of the movie. But as you said - even then: that's still a damn good movie.Reviews I've seen have suggested it's really good, but doesn't really take its premise as far as it could and never gets past anything you've probably already seen/imagined in a Bond movie. Which, if that's the worst case, will still make for an entertaining two hours or so.
Space is at a bit of a premium out here. I'm aware of a chinese restaurant out on Rt. 1 that's running a drive-in in their parking lot, but they're going for maximum cheese factor (the GF saw Mamma Mia, or possibly even the sequel, there a month back) rather than new releases. That's about it.No drive-in within driving distance? It's a pretty fun experience.
Though, again, the major criticism of the reviews I've seen is that while it's a fun movie, the action never really lives up to or fully explores the premise. I still am looking forward to seeing it, and will be curious what I come away from it thinking.I get the "it's a better James Bond" critics, or at least up to a certain point - if you ignore the core topic of the movie.
