Director James Gunn tried his hands on a DC project this year with The Suicide Squad. While fans had their issue with the movie and Gunn’s over the top direction style, one thing they couldn’t explain was the action.

No Time To Die was a highly anticipated movie because it was Daniel Craig’s last movie as James Bon. True, the execution could have been better but once again, it’s a James Bond movie and the action is, as usual, something to look out for. It left most of the fans satisfied, but some of course were unsatisfied with the overall movie.

Nobody (7.4)

It’s a big deal when you have the same numbers as No Time To Die. Bob Odenkirk certainly delivered with Nobody and the action was above average for sure. Some people definitely called it a John Wick rip off but that wasn’t the case.

The Last Duel (7.5)
