Skyfall – Movie Review

19 11 2012

Having a James Bond movie released now is almost like medicine for the recent marathon of superhero/sci-fi movies. Skyfall is directed by Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition), and may be the most polished 007 flick yet. The story flows quickly but steadily and fans and non-fans alike will be sucked into the exciting plot.

Daniel Craig plays a convincing James Bond, but perhaps the most memorable performance in the film is from Javier Bardem, who plays the villain of this bout as if he is auditioning to be the next Batman villain. With cruel, crooked line delivery and devilish facial expressions, Bardem might as well be the best Bond villain ever seen on screen. This villain even has an intriguing back story that involves Bond himself, transforming Skyfall into an unexpectedly personal tale for both the hero and the villain.

The scenes leading up to the climatic action sequence gets a little draggy and unnecessarily sappy, but by the time the credits come along, I was absolutely in awe of what a comeback James Bond has made on the cinema screen. Skyfall is a must watch for everybody.

Good review Ipodman. After this movie, I think it’s safe to say that Bond is back to his old ways and hopefully he stays there and keeps the franchise moving.
