Average Rating: 3 out of 5 (21 Reviews)
“More brutal, laconic, the new Bond embodied by Daniel Craig abandons gadgets, humor and eroticism in favor of pure action. “(L’Humanité)
“Marc Forster (…) builds a relentless and sophisticated action film that loses in duration (…) what it gains in character. Welcome to a (even) better Bond. “(Premiere)
“A somewhat short scenario. Certainly, we take full eyes, but we expected the director nominated several times at the Oscars to leave him his charm, his spice. “(Le Journal du Dimanche)
“Marc Forster (…) does not go beyond the framework of the exercise of trendy style (…) A sloppy scenario, unnecessarily complicated, which sacrifices density on the altar of flashy exploits. ” (MCinéma.com)

Average Rating: 3 out of 5 (34 Reviews)
“The tradition is well respected: amazing gadgets, impeccable tuxedo, flying Aston Martin … Mission accomplished for this leaping Leap (Perfect Craig), a tad long but ultimately very effective and spectacular. We also appreciate a certain self-mockery. “(Le Parisien)
“007 Specter is reminiscent of those surprise pouches that we found, as children, in bakeries and other supermarkets. We knew more or less what we were going to come across, we were sometimes disappointed, but often delighted. Just the pleasure of the gift. “(VSD)

Average Rating: 3.1 out of 5 (37 Reviews)
“Without giving in to the spectacular splendor expected, Mourir can wait is animated by a reforming ardor which pushes him to rethink from top to bottom all the supposedly immutable constituents of the myth, and in doing so offers him his visa for a new world.” (Les Inrockuptibles) “In his last role, Craig gives this opus a twilight dimension; it is the climax of a role brought to its incandescence, which still resonates long after the end of the credits.” (Band apart) “Drowned in special effects, Agent 007 runs the only real risk of his life: becoming a hero among others. Effective, of course, but a little trivialized.” (Current woman) “Certainly, we cannot live in nostalgia, James Bond must undoubtedly evolve with the times. As such, Daniel Craig humanizes the hero in a touching way. But to become too human, he does not ‘is no longer very… “bondien”. ” (Le Parisien) “Like Tenet, by Christopher Nolan, like Black Widow, by Cate Shortland – also expected like the Messiah by the exhibitors – Dying Can Wait is, alas, a failed film, without even being able to claim formalist ambitions. of the first nor of the electrifying charm of the second, interpreted by Scarlett Johansson. ” (The world)
