spectre reviews

The first reviews for Spectre have begun to trickle out of the United Kingdom, where the latest James Bond adventure opens nearly two weeks before it makes its North American bow. As you’d expect from a series that has such a passionate following – every movie fan has a different idea of what a 007 film should be – the reviews have been all over the place. Some critics say it’s as good as Skyfall! While others say that, ugh, it’s only as good as Skyfall.

While the responses have been generally all over the place, most of them lean positive and there are more than a few raves. At the very least, everyone agrees that Daniel Craig remains a top-notch Bond, even if the movie he’s is a little too long or if director Sam Mendes‘ action a little too bombastic.

Check out some of the early Spectre reviews for yourself after the jump.
