I enjoyed reading this and may well have more comments later. One thing I think should be mentioned is that the plot is inspired by and adapted from Ian Fleming's 'You Only Live Twice' - with the Bond film of the same name keeping little apart from name of film and some characters and Japanese setting with that novel.

Also, many of the scenes set at sea were in fact filmed off the Isle of Wight. And of course behind the bar set in Cuba they have Isle of Wight vodka and gin: http://isleofwightdistillery.com/blogs/latest-news/mermaid-featured-in-new-bond-film

Oh, and you could mention that Phoebe Waller-Bridge, famous for spy show 'Killing Eve' (2018-2022, so Eve obviously took 'A Long Time To Die') was added as a co-writer to improve the humour, relationships and female characters - which though people especially liked Paloma, as she only had a very brief appearance seems to have overall mixed results.
