Spectre early reviews: You won’t like what they have to say

The first reactions for Spectre, the highly anticipated Bond movie have started flooding in after the first press screening in London on Wednesday. They’re not all that positive. Sam Mendes’ sequel apparently fails to live up to Skyfall.

Daniel Craig said he would rather slash his wrists than play Bond again.

The first press screening for the highly anticipated James Bond movie Spectre took place on Wednesday in London and, as expected, the reactions have started pouring in from everywhere. Be prepared for some disappointment.

While it was always asking too much for Spectre to live up to the incredible success that was Skyfall, hearing The Playlist writer Oliver Lyttleton call it Quantum of Solace 2 is hardly encouraging.

From the moment Sam Smith’s theme came out, Spectre has been on the back foot. While we kinda loved it, the general reaction was not as positive. Especially since Adele’s Skyfall is still fresh in everybody’s mind. Then came star Daniel Craig’s oddly unsettling claims that he would rather slit his wrists than play Bond again, for which the studio reportedly had to scold him. That’s never a great sign.
