No Time To Die is therefore the last opus of the 007 franchise. It is also the one in which Daniel Craig appears for the last time, impeccably slipped into his legendary tuxedo. We almost yearned for the very first films, this elegance, this somewhat aerial style…

Impatience

We would have die especially of weariness, waiting for the release of this new but laborious achievement due to, first of all, to the pandemic, and probably because we were so tired of knowing how the beast was going to be killed… or not. At a time when addiction seems to be the only way out in human exchanges, producer Barbara Broccoli had to practice the great art of balance like never before. Because the saga is supposed to continue, not to say that it must continue. But it will not be an easy task. Breaking once for all with a supposedly misogynistic character, at least damn macho and bordering on opportunistic paternalism, a white anglophone, so white... is it really the only option? Here, at All Technopaths, we are huge fans of a James Bond who would continue to embody his time, but not at any cost. The followers of this ambient revisionism, this cancel culture generation cannot continue to trumpet, like a frustrated elephant in the room.

Unifying several generations will therefore not be possible. James Bond is above all, an imprint that will be difficult to erase, as the films overlap and borrow from each other. No Time To Die offers us a rhythm after all quite classic, the one we expected. Saddly some characters are weak or downright useless. The length, not to say the languor of certain scenes, irritates, tires. The film seems to be way too long. Regardless, the charm still operates! But the mixture of genres, with on one hand the re-adaptation of the myth to an era which is changing quite rapiddly regarding global cultural references, and on the other hand, this forever patriarchal James Bond mold (whatever we think)... definitely don't mix. We come out of the room, scrambled in different ways. Should the James Bond legend continue to evolve? And if so, conditioned by what type of scheme sacrifice(s)?
