“No Time to Die” Review: James Bond Gets the Opportune Redo in Daniel Craig’s Last Spy Portrayal
Rating : 7/10
I promised myself not to mention how much of a soft spot I have for director Cary Joji Fukunaga — you need to see his version of Jane Eyre — and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge — Fleabag should be mandatory watching. Yet I’m unable to fulfill my promise because I believe they’re what make the 25th film in the James Bond franchise, No Time to Die, such an up-to-date and quasi-feminist movie.
I’ve never been much of a 007 enthusiast. I like the action-adventure spy genre with international locations and lots of production value but can’t digest very well some of the franchise’s inherent sexism. Yet I’ve been wanting to watch No Time to Die — the movie opens exclusively in theaters on Friday, October 8 — since it was first announced Fukunaga was directing it. He’s also co-writing from a screenplay by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade — they had a hand in penning the previous four Bond movies starring Daniel Craig in the titular role: Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). But I knew I was completely committed to this new Bond installment once Waller-Bridge was hired to punch up the script .
She’s responsible not only for making sure the movie has well-balanced women representation, but she also contributed to the whole plot and brought the essential Britishness to No Time to Die , according to longtime Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. I’ve also decided to believe she’s responsible for all the jokes in the movie that made me laugh.
Fukunaga on the other hand is quite the complete auteur himself. Even though this is a big-budget studio movie of an aging franchise, his filmmaking idiosyncrasy still shows. He can capture romance and longing on screen in a way not that many directors achieve. He’s talented at continuous takes to fully capitalize on the action elements of the movie — not for nothing, he’s the director behind True Detective ‘s infamous season one tracking shot . And he even employs some horror tropes — he’s also the screenwriter of It (2017) — in very specific moments of the film to accentuate the thriller aspects of the plot. Every shot in No Time to Die is meticulously framed, lit and dressed for maximum effect and beauty.
Romance, Action, Adventure and Many Chases
The movie kicks off not long after Spectre left things off, which is a problem because that film was released in 2015 and I didn’t deem it necessary to rewatch it. I don’t think you should either; the plot is easy enough to follow. We’re reunited with Bond and the psychologist Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), who are very much enjoying their entanglement. After a session of sea bathing, he drives his Aston Martin DB5 through the winding roads of Southern Italy at sunset. She wants him to go faster; he doesn’t see the need. “We have all the time in the world,” he tells her. And right that instant you know their consuming romance is doomed.
No Time to Die explores the idea of feeling obsolete and getting old while portraying a retired Bond who spends his time fishing and sailing in Jamaica — it’s better if I don’t tell you how he ends up there. “You’ve done your bit and we thank you for your service, again ,” M (Ralph Fiennes), the head of the British Secret Intelligence Service MI6, tells Bond when he hints at the possibility of getting back to work. But either for MI6 or because the CIA is calling, Jeffrey Wright returns as the American operative Felix Leiter, and you know Bond is going to go back to the running, jumping, chasing, fighting and killing business.
The movie takes the viewer from the hilltop city of Matera, in Italy, to the coasts of Jamaica, the Cuban nightlife, the streets of London and even a foggy forest in Norway. No Time to Die was shot on location in most of those places — Jamaica stood in for Cuba — and practically manages to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat from one action sequence here followed by an adrenalin-fueled chase to the next paradisiacal setting there. But at two hours and 43 minutes the final hour of the film does suffer a bit from franchise bloating. And I got a little bit disinterested in a plot involving Rami Malek as the very villainous Safin. Although I understand over-the-top villains are one of the staples in any Bond film.
Fukunaga makes sure to also include all the other mandatory Bond ingredients: Vodka Martinis are shaken, not stirred; 007 introduces himself as “Bond, James Bond”; gadgets abound; there’s an homage to the iconic gun barrel sequence ; and even though Billie Eilish’s song for the movie — I’m betting she’ll add an Oscar to her long list of Grammy awards — is the most prominently featured throughout the movie, you’ll also hear some notes from the recognizable James Bond theme .
No Time to Die’s Women
But probably where No Time to Die stands out the most — and where it caught my whole attention — is in its treatment of women. These are no Bond girls but women with agency. First, there’s Madeleine. The movie establishes her backstory and furthers the reason why she’s a good match for Bond.
I couldn’t help also being interested in where she buys her clothes, though. “We wanted for Madeleine something timeless, at the same time simple and feminine and sophisticated, but not too much,” the French Seydoux explains about her work with No Time to Die costume designer, Suttirat Anne Larlarb, in the production notes of the film. “It had to be simple in the way that women can relate to and Suttirat really understood that.” They achieved it.
Then there’s the British-Jamaican Lashana Lynch. She plays Nomi, a 00 agent who irks Bond even if she’s all talent and brilliant execution. She’s his younger replacement and he can’t help but resent it a little. She has a sharp sense of humor too.
The Cuban-Spanish Ana de Armas plays one of the juiciest roles in the film. She’s Paloma, a Cuban CIA agent who helps Bond in the rescue mission of a scientist. In true spy flick fashion, it all happens during a black-tie party. Bond’s wearing a tuxedo, Paloma is wearing a navy slip dress. They both achieve lots of ass-kickings, stunt performances and hand-to-hand combat even in those unlikely garments. What’s best, even if there’s palpable chemistry between both agents, it’s clear they’re just colleagues on a mission. And Paloma is fully immune to Bond’s charms.
Naomie Harris rounds out the cast reprising her role as Eve Moneypenny. M’s secretary has come a long way since the early days of the franchise and flirting with Bond. Harris’ version of the character had previously appeared in Skyfall , where Moneypenny wasn’t desk-bound but working as a field officer, and Spectre . In No Time to Die she plays a pivotal role in connecting Bond with the right intelligence, helped by Q (Ben Wishaw).
No Time to Die marks the end of a Bond era and is Craig’s last movie as the titular character. For years now we’ve been inundated by stories about what British actor could take his place next. From all the men rumored to be the next Bond , my choice is Idris Elba. But I also see no reason why the franchise couldn’t simply make MI6 agent Nomi the next definitive 007.
That being said, what really intrigues me is not that much the identity of the new Bond — I’m still not an enthusiast of the franchise — but what Fukunaga and Waller-Bridge have in store and whether they could work together again — preferably on a non-franchise indie project, please.
No Time to Die made it to our list of best and most talked-about movies of the year. Check out the other titles we included on the list .

007 Mission: The Spots in Tirol Where Spectre Was Filmed
"Spectre", the 24th Bond film, was shot in locations around the world – including Sölden and Obertilliach in Tirol. Scroll down to see the precise spots in our region visited by Daniel Craig on Her Majesty's service.
The highest paved road in the Alps. A spectacular steel cable car station high in the mountains. A summit restaurant that resembles an ice cube. All these eye-catching elements feature in the scenes shot in Sölden . This internationally renowned ski resort in the Ötztal Alps was chosen as the setting for some of the most spectacular action-packed scenes in the 24th Bond movie.
In behind-the-scenes footage, associate producer Gregg Wilson says that the film's producers had been talking about how to top the already super-successful “Skyfall” with “Spectre”. “Above all, need a great sequence. It’s going to be spectacular. Tirol offers everything that we needed to pull it off.” Production designer and location scout Dennis Gassner adds, “We are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at – and what could be more exciting than being on top of the world?”
It was the first time the ultimate gentleman spy has graced the Tirolean mountains. He did so mainly because of the daring willingness of Jakob Falkner, head of the ski resort in Sölden. In April 2014, while attending an event, Falkner noticed that the Bond production company was considering shooting key sequences of the latest movie on the Gaislachkogl mountain above Sölden. This was when Falkner embarked on his own personal 007 mission to bring Bond 24 to the lofty peaks of Tirol.
With the support of “Location Austria”, which cordinates film productions shot in Austria, he contacted the Bond production company and travelled to London. Encouraged by friends and colleagues in the tourism industry, he embarked on his very own daring mission “to show the James Bond producers how strong our interest was by showing up in person.” As well as commitment and charm, he had strong arguments in favour of Sölden: “The resort is readily accessible, the logistics are excellent, and the views are sensational.”
It was not Falkner's first time in London. He had visited the city as a boy to learn English and remembers getting his hands on tickets for the world premiere of a James Bond movie. When he arrived at the cinema, there were so many people waiting that there was a queue to get to the queue. He and his friends thought “it wasn’t worth the wait” – and went to the cinema a few days later to see the movie.
This time, his Bond mission was more successful. Sölden was put on the shortlist of locations with most potential and Falkner returned to Ötztal Valley “with a good feeling”. Soon, arrangements were made for the Bond production crew to go to Soelden to finalise plans for filming there. They wanted to drive the switchbacks of the road leading up to the Rettenbach Glacier to an elevation of 2,829 metres themselves. They wanted to tour the spectacular steel structure of the gondola station, the amazing viewing platform and the distinctive cuboid-shaped ice Q mountaintop restaurant in person to confirm the suitability of the locations in question.
One thing had to been taken into consideration, though. The road leading up to the glacier is usually closed in winter due to avalanche conditions. Heavy snow creates dangerous conditions for tourists, and as well for Daniel Craig.
And ... action!
Back in Sölden, Falkner gathered a small team of experts who were the only ones in the know – no one else was initiated into the secret of the “B 24” mission. Eventually, the producers confirmed their plans for shooting Bond 24 in Soelden. In December 2014, the production team visited once again to prepare for filming by scoping out the locations. “Safety first” was the paramount rule but, luckily, the road could be opened. Spectre began filming in January 2015 with Daniel Craig, joined by Bond girl Léa Seydoux and a muscular henchman called “Mr. Hinx”, played by Dave Bautista. Shooting continued in February with stuntmen and extras.
Some of the indoor scenes were finally shot at the London Studios in a replica of the “ice Q” restaurant. Falkner flew to London to view the set. “That was really awe-inspiring,” he said. Of course, you won’t be able to notice the difference between original and replica in the movie.
Filming in Sölden for the new James Bond 007 movie took three weeks in total, including spectacular car chases and fighting against the white snow, mixed with a beautiful deep blue sky and the stunning scenery of the mountains. Falkner knew from the first second that the resort of Sölden and the British spy were the perfect match: “Bond is action and adventure. Sölden is action and adventure! They go together like hand and glove.” Just a few metres from the ice Q restaurant, local Tirolean architect Johann Obermoser has designed the spectacular 007 Elements adventure world in which visitors can see how “Spectre” was filmed and delve into the world of James Bond. The iconic cable car station visited by Bond is also open to the public. In fact, right next to the ski pistes you will see the winding road where 45 Range Rovers and two Britain Norman Islander planes engage in a spectacular chase sequence in the movie.
Like winning the lottery
Thanks to the wonders of technology, the chase which started in Sölden in North Tirol actually ends a few hundred kilometres away in Obertilliach in East Tirol. It was here that a traditional wooden hut (originally from Styria but taken apart and paintakingly rebuilt above Obertilliach) aptly named “Bond House” by local residents took centre stage. Shooting for “Spectre” took place at four locations in and around Obertilliach. Daniel Craig was on location for three days in the middle of January 2015, filming scenes at the so-called “Bond House” as well as on the ski pistes. The filming sites were abuzz with Bond fever. A farmer in the village even named two baby calves that were born on the first day of shooting “Daniel” and “Léa”.
Another shooting location was the historic village centre in Obertilliach. “This was the main reason why Obertilliach was chosen as the setting for the film’s mountain scenes,” explains mayor Matthias Scherer. In March 2014 he was informed that Obertilliach was on the shortlist for a Spectre film shooting. Soon after that the production company told us that if the local community gave their OK, they would not look for other locations anymore. Scherer knew he had to seize this opportunity with both hands. “For a tourism resort, a film shoot of this kind is like winning the lottery.” The film crew began preparing the area in anticipation of the arrival of the main unit in early September 2014. Snow was brought in by the truckload to top up the snow on the set in the centre of the village.
687 residents and one secret agent
The main filming in Obertilliach began in mid-January 2015. The ski lift was closed for two days to allow the crew to record the movie’s intense action scenes. Daniel Craig’s 007 was seen on set aiming at a target with his handgun. Various scenes involving the badly damaged wreckage of the cockpit of a crashed plane were also shot in Obertilliach. “In the previous winter we had cleared a lot of woodland to place the overhead power lines in the ground as they were often broght down by heavy snowfall. It turned out that this clearing was very useful for filming," explains the local mayor Matthias Scherer.
As was the case in Sölden, Scherer says that working with the production company and the film crew was very pleasant and less complicated than imagined. “They made a real effort to take into account the needs of the local population,” he says. The friendly owners of a home situated close to the so-called “Bond House” in Obertilliach invited members of the cast, crew and security to warm themselves up over homemade delicacies in their lovely wood-panelled parlour. ‘Villainous henchman’ Dave Bautista felt so ‘at home’ that he enjoyed a nap on their sofa, next to the cat.
And once 007 had left, East Tirol returned to its roots as a peaceful place surrounded by wonderful nature. With Bautista, Craig, Seydoux and all the other actors gone, Obertilliach once again began welcoming visitors in search of rest and relaxation as well as action and adventure. The resort is known as one of the best spots in the world for cross-country skiing and biathlon. But it is also enjoyed in summer by hikers and bikers. And after all that effort, the only trace of 007 left behind in East Tirol is a small hut. Even the clearing in the forest has now disappeared, filled with trees that cover the spot where James Bond crash-landed in his airplane.

"SPECTRE" FILMING LOCATIONS AND SCHEDULES
whens the trailer out
Hello Adam. Teaser trailer will be released 28th of March and full trailer is scheduled to be released on 4th of September 2015.
Is filming over now its july
And any chance film brought forward
Hello Adam. Looks like filming is over. We have heard rumours that there is a wrap party this evening (July 5th). SPECTRE global release date is still 6th November 2015
Waiting for the schedule for Morrocco
Hello. We will update this information as soon as we know. :)
Morocco lovely, I lived there many years.
Should be wrap after the shoot in N.Africa right ..?
Hello Glenn. Yes, we think so. As far as we know they are about to film 10 days in Morocco at the end of June, but we don't have any material of the filming so far. We hope to get some photos soon!
Is there any possibility the filming could go farther than July 5th? To maybe mid-July?
At this point it seems that filming will be wrapped in the beginning of July. However, it is always possible that they will continue at Pinewood studios if needed.
Does anyone know what the church in the funeral scene shown briefly in the trailer is? It looks like a Modernist, exposed concrete one... Any clues much appreciated! Thanks.
Hello Miss Marie. James Bond was supposed to attend a funeral at Cemetery of Verano in Rome, Italy but the plans were blocked by a mysterious and ancient religious order. Archconfraternity of the Departed, a religious order which historically provided burial for the poor and destitute, and which still has sway over the cemetery, has refused entry to cast and crew. They didn't want an invasion of trucks and heavy goods vehicles inside the cemetery. The Mayor´s office received earlier a request that "SPECTRE" crew could film in the piazza outside the Museum of Roman Civilisation and reworked the funeral scene there.
How long will spectre be
Unfortunately we don't know yet
Running time is 2 hours and 28 minutes
Thanks for this blog, have been following it over the year. The film is fantastic - clearly all this hard work has paid off.

Sölden and Spectre
Hotspot in the alps.
In 2015 the film crew for the 24th James Bond film, SPECTRE, arrived in Sölden. Locations in and around the resort were used in the film. The ice Q restaurant at the top of the Gaislachkogl Peak became the Hoffler Klinik where James Bond meets Madeleine Swann. This location is also where the snow chase began. Villain Hinx, and his henchman, kidnap Madeleine and drive off down the mountain whilst James Bond pursues them in a plane. Some of the action took place in the tunnel between the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers and adjacent glacier road.
The Gaislachkogl gondola station at the mid-station also featured in a tense sequence involving Q.
Tunnel between Rettenbach and Tiefenbach Glaciers and adjacent Glacier Road
Producer's request: "What we need is an extreme mountain road for action-packed chase scenes where Bond in an airplane hunts the villains right through the high Alpine mountain world. Amidst a scenic winter landscape. Can you do that?" Of course! You can even experience it firsthand when skiing down on Piste no. 30 leading from Rettenbach Glacier to the valley floor.
ice Q Restaurant and summit (3048 m)
Glass-covered, spectacular, unique and one of the main reasons why Sölden was chosen as a filming location: fine dining in the ice Q gourmet restaurant at the highest levels – both culinary delights and breathtaking high-altitude location (3048 m) await our guests. But in the movie this futurist building has a different purpose. All we are allowed to tell you: not only snow is coming out of the cannons!
Probably the most modern mountain gondola in the Alps makes the best backdrop for a wintry James Bond Movie. The state-of-the-art middle station of Gaislachkogl Mountain Gondola has become a part of the action movie as well. A couple of film scenes took place in the triple rope gondola on its way up to the peak. Simply enter the panoramic cabin and enjoy a breathtaking mountain gondola ride.
