Matching the success of 2012’s Skyfall was always going to be a big ask for director Sam Mendes and his leading man, Daniel Craig. But with a dazzling mix of locations, action sequences and a supporting cast that includes the formidable presence of Christopher Waltz and Monica Belluci, Spectre has taken aim and given it its best shot. You would expect nothing else, of course. If this is to be Craig’s swansong, he has done himself – and the series to which he has breathed new life – proud. See more on page 24.
