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…
Breaking the continuity that carried over from Casino Royale to Quantum of Solace, Skyfall is a standalone feature which takes the series to an all-time high by becoming the most successful chapter of the long-running franchise and with its strong word-of-mouth reception also turns out to be the fitting instalment to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Bond series.
The story of Skyfall presents the 007 agent at his most vulnerable after he's accidentally shot down by his own colleague while on a mission. Retiring to a peaceful life once he's presumed dead, Bond ultimately returns to duty after an assassination attempt is made on M after which further investigations lead him to a former MI6 agent who seeks revenge…
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…
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…
As great as this movie is, as great as Daniel Craig is, as hard as it is to imagine any other Bond in this movie, it would have been even better and more meaningful if he'd made it when he was 54 instead of 44, or if it was his last Bond instead of his third (out of at least four). The whole script, about Bond's continuing (or perhaps declining) relevance in the modern world, only really makes sense on a metatextual level, because Craig's Bond is still quite clearly an ass kicker of the highest order. If he was the age of, say, Roger Moore circa A VIEW TO A KILL, this movie would have an whole extra layer to it.
(NOTE: This is a quibble. I love this movie.)
Let me start out by saying that this movie is so awesome. But there are just 2 major parts of the plot that made no sense to me whatsoever.
1. How did Silva know exactly what day he would be captured, escape and exactly where M would be on that specific day? He had been "planning for years" to be captured and infiltrate MI6 but there is no way he could have possibly known the exact day this would happen. He somehow knew she would be in that court meeting?
2. The ending. When Q leaves the breadcrumbs for Silva to follow, why on earth would they ACTUALLY let M go to the house alone with Bond? They could have…
Holy shit. Great title sequence, great Bond theme, great cinematography, great Bond villain, great set pieces, great plot. Great everything. This is easily one of the best.
I still hold Moonraker in higher regard, though.
lowkey into this even w all the overly melodramatic scenes
I've never been the biggest fan of Bond. I mean I'll watch them and enjoy them but I wouldn't activity go out of my way to view one. However, Craig's Bond (and with Mendes at the helm) is something I have sought out and loved. Skyfall has it all (and yes, I include Adele's theme tune) — of particular note is Bardem's baddie and Dench, who is well Dench in this.

The 23rd film in the canonical Bond film, and highly regarded as the best of the "Craig" Bond films
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I haven't watched a lot of the Bond films. In fact, I've really only seen Casino Royale, Skyfall, and Spectre(I decided to skip Quantum of Solace). But, I have seen enough to know that this series can go from good(Spectre), to great(Casino Royale), to amazing(Skyfall). Skyfall was a difficult film to get around to watching, because I knew that it was going to be over 2 hours long, with lots of plot and characters in it. And it does have these things. There are lots of characters, all of whom are well acted, and lots of plot, which my suspension of disbelief barely had to work on to get me to enjoy them. The Plot revolves around M of MI6…
A wonderful return to form for Bond. Neither the campiness of Pierce Brosnan or the grittiness of the last 2 Craig films, this feels like a return to what made James Bond movies great. Craig again proves why he is the best Bond.
Als, the fact that Roger Deakins was robbed of the Oscar for cinematography movie is a cinematic travesty. A true legend when it comes to the medium.
