Watch: Honest Trailer For Bond-By-The-Numbers 'Spectre'

Calling it quite accurately “Bond-by-the-numbers,” the video takes the movie to task for dully running down the expected Bond tropes, including fancy cars, gadgets, catchphrases, and women (or as they call them, “underdeveloped female sex objects” —zing). This Honest Trailer also calls out the predictable Blofeld reveal, as well as the film’s penchant for board meetings, briefings, and other stuff you don’t want to see in a Bond movie.
