Think on your sins.
When Bond's latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows - aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) - following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.
Skyfall opens with a dapper James Bond stealthily coming out of the darkness into the light. As soon as you are able to see his face, the modern yet familiar Bond theme hits a loud high point and your heart skips a beat. A little while later, he makes a daring leap into the exposed backside of a train and in one of the sexiest moments of the year, straightens his sleeve like it's no big deal. Skyfall sets your expectations sky high and miraculously maintains the excitement and tension established so early on.
Where Skyfall fits into the overall history of Bond films isn't something I can form an opinion on due to the fact that I've only seen…
As a Brit it probably isn’t wise to admit that I don’t really care much for the Bond films. They are perfectly adequate action-adventure movies but the vast majority are utterly indistinguishable from one another. Daniel Craig’s tenure as the iconic spy is no different and that includes Casino Royale which is widely considered one of the best Bond films to date. Because of this I was sceptical of the near-unanimous praise that Skyfall has been receiving but for once the acclaim is more than deserved as not only is this a great Bond movie but a great film period.
On paper at least Skyfall looked promising with a pedigree rarely seen in such blockbuster fare. Sam Mendes hardly seemed…
Sam Mendes proves his Bond making credentials, and confirms his excellent film making credentials.
Skyfall certainly is an excellent film. The best Bond film in 48 years. This is a proper spy film, and James Bond, as a character is a proper spy.
As a Bond fan this film pleased me in every way. You have to hand it to the film makers, it takes massive balls to put a 4 minute title sequence 10 minutes into a massive film release these days, and this film has massive balls. And you know what?, it's an excellent title sequence. Even Adele's theme sounds massive. There are so many slightly contrived Bond fan pleasing moments, but those same slightly contrived Bond fan…
Sometimes the old ways are the best.
My love affair with James Bond has been a long one. One of the first novels I read in English was Casino Royale. I was about eleven years old I think and just finding my footing in the English language. The accessibility of that novel, combined with the thrilling story appealed to me very much and warranted many a trip to my local library to seek out more novels about this roguish, charismatic and brutal cold hearted killer. I have read all Bond novels and love them for their escapist qualities.
The transition to the movies has been a bumpy ride for me as I felt they never managed to capture Fleming's Bond…
And with that, Skyfall is here, and James Bond is back.
But how did it fare? Well... Skyfall was so fucking satisfying, I couldn't even speak for about a good 15 minutes after it ended. I tried to squeeze in words through my wide smile but all that could come out were murmurs of restrained joy.
What's great about Skyfall is that it commits to the promise brought in by Casino Royale, and manages to add some new twists to the formula installed in that film. Skyfall manages to combine the more cinematic Bond with the book Bond, and it blends beautifully. I can't see any sort of 007 fan not falling in love with this film, whether you're a…
50 years ago, an icon was born.
Today, Skyfall adds to the legend that is Bond...James Bond.
Last Summer, I was able to watch every single 007 film to prepare myself for Skyfall. I was already a fan of the character but watching all the films made me appreciate the character more and appreciate more of how important he is to pop culture as whole. After finally seeing the film that I've been building myself up for, it would be an understatement to say that it delivers. After seeing them all, I think this may be the best film in the franchise to date.
I was already excited to see Bond on the big screen for the first time, but…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
After that utter disappointment known as Quantum of Solace, "Skyfall" brings the James Bond franchinse back to true greatness. Seriously, I have a tough time especially after these rewatches deciding if I prefer Casino Royale or this, as they're both equally fantastic. They're also not only among my favorite action movies of all-time, but among my favorite movies of all-time. Like Casino Royale, this installment brings the franchinse in brand new heights and exciting direction, while also paying some great homage to the older Bond films.
Daniel Craig is once again brilliant as James Bond, and perhaps gives his best performance as Bond thus far. He's of course very charismatic and bad-ass, but also shows more of a vulnerable side…
007 Operação Skyfall é um lindo ensaio entre o moderno e o clássico! Seria a tecnologia o elemento mais importante ou a experiência? Descubra assistindo!
OBS: esse é o filme 007 mais próximo da realidade, com exceção da cena com motos encima do telhado.
Sam Mendes added charisma, plot and poetry to this movie. And yes, it worked for me. Visually and emotionally one of my favourites Bond movies.
Starting with the first Daniel Craig Bond, Casino Royal, the franchise has made a shift in tone to a more “real” and less glossy Bond. I find it interesting that in the new millennium the filmgoers have embraced this more human Bond (as two of the three films have been critically acclaimed as well as box office winners), whereas when the more gritty and less gimmick Bond was first trotted out years ago by Timothy Dalton, the effort got slammed even though I thought both his performance and the film itself to be excellent.
The entire story here is a more personal one. The main antagonist, in a performance that for me somehow resonated John Malkovich weirdness as portrayed by…
not sure what i find more attractive; this movie's cast or its cinematography
Finally, Bond is back! Truly mesmerizing cinematography by Roger Deakins gives the film depth and a gritty reality that perfectly matches Craig's hard-boiled take on Bond.
Paying tribute to James Bond's 50th Anniversary, it was important that "Skyfall" be special without being a huge departure for the series. To fulfil these strangely contradictory requirements the studio brought in award-winning director Sam Mendes and it proved to be one of his most enjoyable films in years. There's much more focus on James Bond as a legend than there is on the specific mission, yet we have one of the most intimidatingly personal villains (performed expertly by Javier Bardem) and a strong replacement in the role of Q (Ben Whishaw doing the best possible job imaginable in taking over from the irreplaceable Desmond Llewelyn).
The action scenes are exciting, Daniel Craig is able to bring a subtle emotional…
