No Time to Die VIOLENCE/GORE 7

 – A man with a gun trudges through snow toward an isolated cabin, and enters the cabin after a young girl inside tries to warn her mother; the child tries to hide in a safe room but cannot access it, she hides under her bed and hears the man shoot her mother after telling her that her husband killed his entire family (we see the woman’s body with bullet holes in a blanket covering her but no blood is evident), and when the man enters the child’s room, the child shoots him several times knocking him back and over a stairwell to the floor below. A young girl drags a seemingly dead man out of a cabin and through snow (we see a streak of blood on the ground), the man inhales sharply and sits up (we see a mask that he is wearing broken away to reveal his chin that seems discolored and scarred), the child runs onto a frozen lake and the man follows; the ice breaks under her feet and she falls in unable to surface until the man shoots the ice from the surface and pulls her out. Many people surround a man at a party and then step away from him as gas is emitted from the ceiling; people around the man erupt with boils on their faces and they bleed and fall to the floor dead. A man with a gun moves through a facility where he shoots other armed men as they shoot at him and throw explosives that blow up and knock him down a few times; he fights with one man and holds him around the throat until his fake eye explodes in his head killing him (we see a bit of blood and a spark). A woman shoves a man and he falls into an acid bath; he boils and screams.
 A man draws a gun and fights with two other men on a ship, and he gets away and sets explosives to blow up the ship as he flies away in a seaplane; one man is shot in the abdomen and we see a lot of blood on his shirt and dies later when the ship is flooded with water and he floats away motionless; the other man surfaces and finds a raft and we see him sitting in it later as a ship approaches. A man holds another man around the throat, says, “Die,” turns away and when he turns back the man is slumped over dead with bloody boils on his head and face. A man shoots a vehicle and when it flips over he shoots the driver inside; he sets a trap for other vehicles and clotheslines a motorcyclist, another car flips and a passenger lies on the ground with a bloody head wound until he is crushed under the car when it falls over and on top of him. A man shoots another man twice and he falls into a pond, he fights the shooter and breaks his arm (we see it bend and hear a crunch) and the wounded man spills a vial of something into the water; one man shoots the other man leaving him dead and floating in the water and the other man limps away with bloody bullet wounds on his back and leg. A woman shoots a man on a motorcycle as he threatens another man carrying a young child.
 Missiles crash down on an island and blow everything up. Armed people scale down the side of a building, cut out a glass panel and enter the building where they shoot several people (no blood is shown) and take a man and information away from the building as one floor is shown blowing up. A man visits the grave of a woman and the grave explodes blowing him backward and knocking him out briefly; he comes to with his ears ringing (he has blood on his head) and runs after a young man that was nearby, a car speeds toward the man and someone inside shoots at him; a motorcycle speeds toward him also and the man grabs a cable and jumps off a bridge landing hard on the ground below. A man enters a room where several gunmen stand and a man and a young girl sit in the middle of the room; they talk and the man with the child threatens her until the first man tries to shoot him and he takes the child into a hatch in the floor that closes behind them while the child bites the man’s arm causing him to moan and put her down (she runs away).
 A man and woman shoot their way out of a building with many gunmen shooting at them; they fight a few men with punches and kicks. A man and a woman search through a remote facility and shoot several people as they go; one man falls dead into what looks like water but it behaves like acid and he dissolves. A woman slides down a cable, grabs a man and takes him back up the cable with her; she slides along another cable attached between two buildings and another man shoots the cable, breaking it and the two people fall hard on a balcony, while other men shoot at them.
 A man driving with a woman and child is chased by other cars and motorcycles: one car slams the back of his car, he swerves pushing one car off and slamming another against a rock wall causing it to flip, many more cars join the chase as well as a helicopter, the cars drive through water and over ledges as the young child in the first car whimpers and the man drives into a thick forest where dense fog shields them. A man speeds in a car while being chased by other cars and motorcycles; he drops explosives that blow a few of the cars up, he speeds away and is struck from the side by another car; he is surrounded by several more cars and people with guns open fire on him and his passenger (we see the bulletproof glass of the car begin to give way) until he engages machine guns emerging from his car and spins in circles shooting the gunmen and then speeds away.
 A woman steals a car and speeds into scaffolding where a man and a woman are standing; the scaffolding crashes down onto the car and the man tumbles to the ground (no injuries are shown).

 A man speeds on a motorcycle up flights of stairs through crowded pedestrian areas (people jump out of the way) and drops it roughly at the door of a hotel. Several people jump into an empty elevator shaft and one man is pushed; they are caught by high-powered magnets before hitting the ground below. A glider sails through the air after being dropped from a plane and it lands in water, retracts its wings and descends underwater as a submarine, and then surfaces in a submarine bay. A man is shown chained to a chair and shackled in a secure facility.
 A man threatens a woman telling her that he will kill the one that she loves the most, as he gives her a box that contains something that frightens her.

A young girl refers to her mother being depressed and eating too much. A woman refers to someone being buried nearby.

 Two men access a samples fridge and remove vials that they turn over to other men and one of the first men is shot in the head (off-screen). A woman lights a piece of paper and drops it over a balcony; we see several people lighting pieces of paper and they float through the air in flames (it’s a method of letting go of the past).

No Time to Die MESSAGE

 – Life is all about leaving something behind.


Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
