No Time to Die has finally made its way to cinemas worldwide. The final installment of the Daniel-Craig-era has received good reviews. I appreciate the new-found sensitivity which hopefully sets a direction for the franchise:
What is not there is the serial abuser of women. His harsh and brutal career has seemingly taught Commander Bond what really matters in life. This is a film about love, truth, integrity, sacrifice and loss. […]Meaning in the Movies
This film is sensitive to many of the things that increasingly matter in our evolving world. Dealing with a potential world-wide pandemic, showing greater respect to women, calling out a lack of integrity, two black women in lead roles and changing world order.
After all, you can be a super-spy without being a misogynist. Would it be too much to hope for a woman lead in the twenty-sixth film?
