Whether it is worth seeing new James Bond film No Time To Die in IMAX

Daniel Craig finally exits the James Bond franchise in Cary Joji Fukunaga film No Time To Die but is it worth seeing in IMAX?

No Time to Die: Final international trailer for new Bond film

As Daniel Craig departs his iconic tenure as James Bond in director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s No Time To Die, you may be wondering whether it is worth seeing in IMAX.

In the film, having been retired in Jamaica for five years, Bond is called out of his solitary existence by old friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) when scientist Valdo Obruchev (David Dencick) is kidnapped by dangerous forces.

The quest takes Bond across the globe and reunites him with his old MI6 colleagues, arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), and former love Dr Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux).

Swann’s past and Obruchev’s kidnapping lead directly to a dangerous new foe: Lyutsifer Safin (Rami Malek).

Can Bond save the world from Safin and his horrifying new weapon?

Despite perhaps being too busy and not devoting enough time to developing its chief antagonist, No Time To Die is an emotional and epic send-off for Craig.

Putting in his most moving and magnetic turn yet as Bond, Craig once again says so much with so little as the espionage agent, ensuring the most psychologically rich run of the character ends in style.

As noted, the character of Safin does not get the time he deserves but Malek is suitably creepy in the role – even if the character’s disfigurement feels like a lazy cliche.

The female characters are valuable assets to the film, with three very capable and charismatic turns. A returning Seydoux is suitably enigmatic and sombre as Swann, as the character is given more texture than in Spectre.

Meanwhile, Lashana Lynch is likeable and joyfully prickly as new 00 agent Nomi, just as Ana de Armas is a true scene-stealer in her small role as bubbly Cuban agent Paloma.

The action set pieces to abound too, with pulsating and highly kinetic filmmaking from Fukunaga, even amongst the stereotypical Bond tropes which feel comforting more than tiring now.

These feel especially earth-shattering when viewed on an IMAX screen, with the superior sound quality immersing you in the tense and startling twists.

The sound also adds to Hans Zimmer’s gorgeous score which feels so perfectly Bond but when some original innovations. The best samplings come from borrowed pieces from John Barry’s luscious score to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

In terms of the visuals, there’s no beating the titanic all-encompassing screens of IMAX which truly shut out all distractions and offer superior quality and scale – which only serves to make the truly beautiful cinematography of Linus Sandgren stand out more than ever – particularly in the early snowbound scenes in Norway and the pre-titles sequence in Matera, Italy.

All in all, an epic rollercoaster ride like No Time To Die is bettered by the biggest screeners and sound systems available and thankfully IMAX has that covered.

Verdict

No Time To Die is an epic final James Bond outing for Daniel Craig and experiencing it in IMAX is truly the superior viewing experience.

*No Time To Die is out in IMAX cinemas now.
