“We all have our secrets.”

Ignorance is bliss. It’s also deadly. Daniel Craig’s final mission as the British operative, 007 takes him around the world to exotic locations in Italy, Jamaica, Norway, and The UK. His outward journey is mirrored by an inner one that tests every fiber of his being.
Women have always been Bond’s mortal weakness. Presently he’s in the clutches of Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux). Seydoux reprises her role as the French Psychologist (The first time ever that a bond girl has returned for a 2nd film). Her first appearance was in the previous installment in the franchise, Spectre (2015).
The 27th film in the Bond franchise is as fresh as the first. It delivers all the action, all the feels, and is relatable. In fact, my highest praise is it’s apparent genius IQ at capturing the zeitgeist of what is Now, 2021. It’s chalk-full of dialogue, plot, and characters, (innuendos, even) that reflect today’s western culture, and the hardships and decisions we are all presently facing in the midst of a global pandemic.
