As the first global screening of James Bond’s latest installment “No Time to Die” closed, journalists and critics shared their thoughts on Twitter about Daniel Craig’s last journey as a notorious secret agent.
While the response on social media may be more positive than the upcoming review, the film made one thing clear via Twitter: “No Time to Die”, which was delayed by nearly two years due to creative change and the Covid-1 pandemic epidemic, was worth the wait.
Film critic Scott Mantz wrote that although the film needed more time to process, it was certainly better than the Bond films “Quantum” and “Specter”. “It’s the most grounded Daniel Craig and – dare I say it? – Take #JamesBond most closely with a strong, unexpected and very emotional payoff, ”Montz said. “DF is worth the wait!”
No time to die: It takes more time to process, but I really liked it a lot – better than the default Quantum and Specter. It is # Daniel CraigIts the most basic and – I dare say it? – The closest intimacy # James Bond With a strong, unexpected and very emotional payoff. The wait is worth the wait! pic.twitter.com/q5ladwndg0

Rotten Tomatoes Critic Tessa Smith praised the effective use of the film’s length. “No time to die” is what I wanted and much more! “A great farewell to Daniel Craig but to be honest I want more Rami Malek! Yeah it’s long but whenever it seemed like it was going to pull, it just jumped in with adrenaline! Packed action from the start! Classic Bond!”

Fundango writer Eric Davis said the film was “a perfect ending for Daniel Craig”.
“The classic Bond, the classic villain, the classic gadget and a story that may question how much we still need James Bond to save the day,” Davis wrote. “Great writing from Carrie Joji Fukunaga and stunning direction. Like every second!”

Diversity Awards editor Clayton Davis said “No Time to Die” is the greatest movie as Craig’s Bond. “The final entry of Daniel Craig’s time as James Bond is the best of his time,” Davis wrote. “#NoTimeToDie is effective, passionate bit and again, efficient with an artisan skill led by Linus Sandgren, Tom Cross and the sound team. Extremely enjoyable and I’m not a general bond enthusiast. ”

Meanwhile, Fellow Diversity Writers Matt Donnelly and Janelle Riley praised Anna de Armas’ performance in the film. “Anna de Armas handed out the best part of #NoTimeToDie,” Donnelly wrote. “Sadly there’s only one order. Funny and sexy and she blows things up.”
Riley agrees: “There’s no time to die, but like all movies, there’s always more Anna de Armas can use.”

There is no time to die The end of this era of James Bond is through a great and spectacular ending. The plots of previous films wrap up while pushing the boundaries of what the character can offer. Rami Malek is a terrible bond villain. Exciting, well-made and emotional. A toast for Daniel Craig! pic.twitter.com/80hLbNaGPQ
