NO TIME TO DIE

No time to die was the twenty-fifth installment of the Bond saga that started sixty years ago in 1962 with Sean Conner’s portrayal of the spy in Dr. No. No one does it like James Bond and they put his ‘license to kill’ to use in an action-packed finale and bid farewell to Daniel Craig’s five-movie-long saga with a bang. From the locations to the props every action sequence was choreographed and put together perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle.
