Although I don't really go in for action movies, I loved 'Spectre', the new Bond film. I don't want to babble on and give the whole thing away if you're planning to see it, so I'll just give you the bare minimum. The film follows 007 as he uncovers the secrets of a sinister organisation, while the future of the entire secret service is under threat. It begins in the midst of Mexico City on The Day of the Dead and the streets are teeming with caricatures of death, skeletons dressed up to the nines! Bond gets into some hairy moments with the baddies and there's plenty of suspense, as well as, of course, romance.
