Spectre (out Nov 12) is a chaotic Bond film that doesn’t quite come together. Christoph Waltz fails to impress as the keynote villain and the writers have taken few chances with a very conventional screenplay. Despite its limitations, the film is still to be admired for Sam Mendes’ skilful direction and the striking visuals of Dutch cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema. The affable cast also give it a boost. Grade: B.
