Na de wereldpremière in Londen zijn de eerste recensies van No Time to Die verschenen. De laatste James Bond met Daniel Craig in de hoofdrol haalt op 30 september de Belgische zalen.
The Guardian beschrijft No Time to Die als verrassend, zelfbewust, grappig en zelfzeker.
The Wrap prijst de emotionele impact van de film en voegt eraan toe dat Craig mogelijk de meest complexe en gelaagde Bond-vertolking ooit neerzet.
Total Film vindt het ondanks de teleurstellende slechterik Savin (Rami Malek) een gewaagde en geslaagde climax van Craigs Bond-films.
Volgens ScreenRant zijn de actiescènes fantastisch en heeft de film een sterke emotionele kern, maar schiet de finale tekort.
Wat ScreenDaily betreft, is de film niet leuk of scherp genoeg.

NO TIME TO DIE: Need more time to process, but I really liked it a lot — def better than Quantum & Spectre. It’s #DanielCraig’s most grounded and — dare I say it? — most intimate take on #JamesBond with a powerful, unexpected & very emotional payoff. Def worth the wait! pic.twitter.com/q5ladwndg0

No Time To Die is everything I wanted & more! A great farewell to Daniel Craig but honestly I wanted more Rami Malek! Yes it's long but whenever it felt like it was about to drag, it jumped right back in with adrenaline! Action packed from the start! Classic Bond! 🔥 #NoTimeToDie pic.twitter.com/Swuoh2o8Sd

So #NoTimeToDie is AWESOME! Classic Bond, classic villain, classic gadgets & a story that seems to question how much we still need James Bond to save the day. Terrific writing & stunning direction from Cary Joji Fukunaga. Loved every second! A perfect finale for Daniel Craig pic.twitter.com/tZr1JRMhqh

The final entry of Daniel Craig's time as James Bond is the finest of his tenure. #NoTimeToDie is effective in action, emotional beats and once again, an artisan mastery helmed by Linus Sandgren, Tom Cross and the sound team. Highly enjoyable & I'm NOT a typical Bond enthusiast. pic.twitter.com/rgRy423hKV

NO TIME TO DIE is great but, like all movies, could always use more Ana de Armas.

NO TIME TO DIE ends this era of James Bond with a grand & spectacular finale. Wraps up the plots from previous films while pushing the boundaries of what the character can deliver. Rami Malek is one creepy Bond villain. Exciting, well-crafted & emotional. A toast to Daniel Craig! pic.twitter.com/80hLbNaGPQ

No Time to Die ends Daniel Craig’s time as James Bond in epic style. It’s everything you want out of 007, including a bit of emotion. It’s long, but it earns your time. Well worth the wait!@007 #NoTimeToDie #NoTimetoDiepremiere #DanielCraig #JamesBond #BondPremiere #Bond pic.twitter.com/eBJmhhPXKx

NO TIME TO DIE is a pretty enthralling Bond adventure with entertaining set pieces and flavors of classic moments in the franchise that will make diehards happy. Surprisingly emotional at times too. It’s an ambitious entry that gives Craig’s tenure a well-earned sendoff. pic.twitter.com/McAkn76zDy

No Time To Die is the big screen spectacle the world has been waiting for. A beautifully directed and emotional goodbye to Daniel Craig’s Bond. #NoTimeToDie is filled to the brim with spectacular action sequences, stunning set pieces, and jaw-dropping cinematography. A must-see. pic.twitter.com/fdyZ6oFOTx

GIVE ANA DE ARMAS EVERY ROLE EVER. I wish she was in #NoTimeToDie more but my God, she was perfect! Hilarious and a bad ass. I love her. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is heavily felt and that's a GREAT thing. And Daniel Craig…wow. Bravo 007, bravo!! 👏🏼 👏🏼 👏🏼 pic.twitter.com/npvNSQ2P8D

NO TIME TO DIE is very good. I’m more relieved than anything else. I was worried going in.
It’s somehow the silliest and most serious Daniel Craig outing. Mostly the former.
— Josh Horowitz (@joshuahorowitz) September 28, 2021
NO TIME TO DIE is mostly nonsense, Roger Moore-level absurd plot. But I love Roger Moore and was in the mood for a ridiculous plot. Craig is great. (Though the ending tries to go for something poignant and heavy and I wasn’t into that part.)
— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) September 28, 2021
Very much enjoyed #NoTimeToDie . Amazing stunts/car chases and really fun dialogue (you can spot Waller-Bridges' additions), but it definitely needed more Ana de Armas. Her and Lashana Lynch are both great, but Armas' bit is just too short. It's also at least 30 mins too long.
— Alex Ritman (@alexritman) September 28, 2021
Everyone’s going to be talking about that #NoTimeToDie ending but it’s the opening minutes – which reminded me of Joe Wright’s HANNA – that stand out as its best, and make it clear that there is life beyond the franchise’s most familiar beats.

The absolutely perfect way to bid farewell to Daniel Craig's time as 007. #NoTimeToDie throws back to every element that made his introduction in Casino Royale so iconic. A perfect blend of old and new, buckle up y'all this is as good as Bond can get.

No Time to Die was worth the wait. Beautiful visuals, killer action, and probably the most emotional Bond film to date. It's needlessly complex, which makes it feel very long, but that extra time & story gives its final act the added gravitas needed to set it apart from the rest. pic.twitter.com/tqQnYe3Aht
— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) September 28, 2021
Wow – #NoTimeToDie is BIG. A relentless dash of action that manages to be both playful and contemplative. Like the hero himself, there are flaws and mistakes. But the film fully belongs to Daniel Craig, whose building narrative over five films comes full circle. pic.twitter.com/cwkjbGRJll

#NoTimeToDie was a really enjoyable 8/10 for me.
— Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) September 28, 2021
#NoTimeToDie might not be the Bond you are expecting but it’s the Bond that we need to round out the Craig era. It delivers what you want and packs a genuine emotional punch. It delivers the trademark beats with some bold, brave, and fresh creative choices. AVOID ALL SPOILERS! pic.twitter.com/pvUcoVmVU6

Walking out of @007 NO TIME TO DIE screening, man…what a fitting farewell to a brilliant James Bond. Humor, Action, Romance, High Stakes. Excellent direction by Fukunaga. Tip of the cap to Daniel Craig, thank you for your service. #NoTimeToDie
— Charles Thorp (@charlesthorp) September 28, 2021
No Time To Die is absolutely wild, with joyously epic action, excellent supporting characters and an emotionally gripping story that caps off Daniel Craig's time as James Bond magnificently. I can't wait to hear what people think!
— Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) September 28, 2021
NO TIME TO DIE: The Craig era ends with a whimper. There’s no reason for this to be as long as it is, Rami Malek’s bad guy is a total snooze, and the movie itself just feels oddly inert. Oh well. We’ll always have CASINO ROYALE.
— Chris Evangelista (@cevangelista413) September 28, 2021
#NoTimeToDie: Plot follows hard on "Spectre," but elaboration risks spoilers. Suffice to say it confirms 𝗗𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗲𝗹 𝗖𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗴's greatness as an actor, one who has elevated franchise material that hasn't always been his equal. A magnificent performance. #JamesBond pic.twitter.com/XAN2VoZOso

Dug #NoTimeToDie for the most part. Some beats lost me/lost momentum but those set pieces are exceptional – and beautifully photographed. Daniel Craig is great (again). Gives every ounce of himself to the role & you can feel it. BUT Ana de Armas was the fav. More of that, please! pic.twitter.com/BbhIv1s4UB
— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) September 28, 2021
It’s almost impressive to make a three-hour end of an era movie that still feels like it has no real stakes.
— Brian Tallerico (@Brian_Tallerico) September 28, 2021
Sad to say #notimetodie didn’t work for me.
It’s def the end of an era; I only wish Daniel Craig’s run finished stronger.
Full review to come… pic.twitter.com/YH7WA61rgO

The wait was worth it. Way to finish Daniel Craig’s #JamesBond run. It’s got a few interesting twists I can’t say I was expecting,but hey,after so many decades, gotta have some surprises left. Really enjoyed all the action and callbacks Cary Joji Fukunaga fit in. A fitting finale

NO TIME TO DIE (2021) – Went into this one of the opinion that Craig's Bond films were a series of diminishing returns — I rank them in release order — but, uh, I guess I can't say that anymore. pic.twitter.com/kvUqo5L7Y4
— FakeRobHunter (@FakeRobHunter) September 28, 2021
Quite satisfied with No Time To Die – a heavy "end of an era" movie in many ways. Finally a compelling, complex Bond movie again that plays with intriguing ideas. But still a classic Bond – big sets, big stakes, big action, Russians, scientists, cars galore, beautiful locations.

#NoTimeToDie is the BIGGEST & BEST Bond film yet! Impressively crafted with stunning visuals & a script that recovers from early stumbles to deliver a boldly riveting final act, Cary Fukunaga & co. have created a enthralling send-off that may be the BEST blockbuster of the year! pic.twitter.com/WLvmkkGbpH

#NoTimeToDie is LOADED with everything you expect in a Bond film but also has a lot of surprises. Was on the edge of my seat for like half the movie. You def want to have the events of #Spectre fresh in your mind before watching. Loved Daniel Craig as James Bond. Great sendoff. pic.twitter.com/0JAm9dyrFQ

I think I need to sleep on it. #NoTimeToDie
— Phil Nobile Jr. (@PhilNobileJr) September 28, 2021
There’s some great stuff in NO TIME TO DIE. And stuff that’s… not so great. The film’s biggest problem is that it’s a direct (and I mean direct) sequel to SPECTRE, and it spends a lot of time trying to fix what that movie broke.
— AlanWCerny (@AlanWCerny) September 28, 2021
I was kind of mixed on #NoTimeToDie . The script is very rough, but it knows to center Bond’s emotional journey, which helps it along and let it be fun even when the story is bloated and convoluted. Look for my full review on @Collider tomorrow.
— Matt Goldberg (@MattGoldberg) September 28, 2021
#NoTimeToDie does a good enough job tying off loose threads to likely satisfy those binge-watching all five Craig Bonds. That said, it’s hard to figure why this thing needed to be nearly 3 hrs. And after 15 years, I’m definitely ready for more escapism and less “saga” in my 007.
