Watch Bond 25
In Bond 25, the 25th installment of the iconic Bond franchise, we see James Bond - played once again by the brilliant Daniel Craig - pulled out of retirement to take on a sinister new villain, Safin, played by the Emmy-winning actor Rami Malek. As the movie opens, Bond is enjoying a peaceful life in Jamaica, having left his thrilling, globe-trotting spy life behind. But his peace is short-lived, as his old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) shows up and asks him for help in rescuing a kidnapped scientist. This sets the stage for a new adventure, full of the classic Bond tropes we know and love - exotic locations, intense car chases, daring rescues, and of course, the iconic Bond girls. In this case, that means Ana de Armas, who plays Paloma, an agent who teams up with Bond along the way. But it's really Malek who steals the show here. Although we don't know too much about his character going in, we soon discover that he is a mastermind with a ruthless streak, and he's bent on taking over the world using dangerous new technology. To stop him, Bond will have to travel from Jamaica to Italy to Norway and beyond, teaming up with old friends and new allies along the way. But even as he fights to save the world from Safin's evil plan, Bond is also grappling with some personal demons. As he faces his own mortality, he has to decide what kind of legacy he wants to leave behind. The chemistry between the cast is excellent, particularly between Craig and de Armas, who bring a refreshing energy to the franchise. And the action set pieces are top-notch, with director Cary Joji Fukunaga delivering some truly heart-pumping moments. Overall, Bond 25 is a rousing and satisfying addition to the Bond canon, one that will leave fans cheering for more. It's a fitting end to Craig's tenure as 007, and sets the stage for the next generation of Bond films to come.
