    Verdict - Either we over expected or Spectre has seriously let us down.

    Spoiler Alert: Spectre is the 24thchapter in the series of James Bond films. The film has come three years after Skyfall was released in 2012, starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007 and Lea Seydoux as the Bond girl. Though this is the 24th installment from the Bond series but it is also the most disappointing Bond experience. Belonging to the category of an action thriller, Spectre moves at a snails speed.

    It has the usual James Bond flavour of car chases, helicopter scenes, train fights and there is nothing more you wait for or look forward to. The film starts with a helicopter chase in Mexico City and ends with one in London.

    Bond is on an unofficial mission, assigned by previous M (Judi Dench), which he receives through a posthumous message. The mission takes him into the roots of a dreaded criminal organization SPECTRE. He has to kill the mastermind Franz Oberhauser. Oberhauser is believed to be dead but as Bond delves deep into the roots into the organisation he finds the history he shares with him.

    There is a necessary absence of previous M (Judi Dench) felt in the film who is replaced by Ralph Fiennes. While watching Spectre you are definitely in for a visual treat. Great cinematography and editing has elevated the beauty by two folds. The music gets better with every Bond film, from 'Skyfall' to 'Writings on the wall'. You shouldn't expect Bond to be an edge of the seat gripping thriller or mystery because that will leave you seriously dissatisfied. Watch it for the usual Bond name and nothing new!
