This may be the first Bond film I've seen all the way through. I was never a big fan of the series before, but I really liked this one. Daniel Craig was a really good Bond, but even better was Javier Bardem as the villain. He was the perfect blend of over-the-top creepy and funny. What was with that whole rat island story? This movie was everything I've heard about the Bond films: ridiculous action, exotic and beautiful locations and sets, and lots of blowing stuff up. I particularly enjoyed the setting of the last third of the movie. I won't go into it too much because I don't want to give anything away, but I thought it was a lot of fun.
I think the improvement of the digital cinematography of the 21st centuary, made Skyfall one of the best action films of 2012. The film epitomizes 007’s cinematic legend of the past, present and the future of James Bond movies!
I thought this movie had a fantastic opening song, which was sung by Adele. James Bond comes out of his retirement in order to help M track down the person who is targeting her. The movie contains a lot of stunts and action scenes executed perfectly by Daniel Craig, which makes this a true James Bond movie. This movie will fill you with so much suspense up until the end that you will be crying out for more.
Who's your favorite Bond? This conversation has been done to death over the years, but you rarely hear people argue about who their favorite M is. Maybe that's because the answer is obvious. Dame Judi Dench. She has been chewing up the scenery in every one of her scenes in all of the Bond films since Goldeneye. Skyfall is an excellent film in no small part due to M's expanded role. I dare you to disagree!
Nifty action scenes chock full of suberb stunts accentuate a good story. Javier Bardem portrays a fine villain. Daniel Craig plays an imperfect yet likeable, cool Bond. I'd been out of the Bond scene since the Roger Moore days and was pleasantly surprised with this slick flick. I even liked the title song. Grade A.
