This is an interesting concept, surely not a genre played out much in
Hollywood. The cast is jam packed with all stars giving great (but not
their best) performances. The missing piece of the puzzle? Character
That's not to say that there is any lack of interesting characters, each of the four horsemen bring a very unique style to the movie (besides Henley, she's rather weak as a character), and the sheer amount of Talent present in each scene guarantees that you'll be entertained.
10/10? Hardly. But definitely a solid 8 for me. Entertaining, fun, and definitely a concept worth exploring on the big screen. Just remember, the closer you look, the less you'll actually see.
Ian Fleming would be quite proud of this fast paced, down to earth, yet
larger than life Bond movie. Skyfall shows the more human side of Bond,
which is something that is rarely seen outside of his drinking habits
and taste in women. Daniel Craig shows that he's not only got the
swagger and brute-force to be Bond, but also the fatigue and
never-give-up attitude that comes with being a more tested and human
Bond than any other actor has been able to do before. Is he the best
Bond ever? I say so.
Javier Bardem puts on a masterful show as Silva, a true Bond villain who's brilliance is only matched by his unflinching cruelty. This potent combination of brawn and brilliance makes Skyfall the most relevant and personal Bond in years, and everyone, from causal fans to die hard Bond fans like myself, can thoroughly enjoy the it's excellence. There are 4 words that can sum up one of the best movies of the year, and my personal favorite Bond movie of them all: welcome back, Mr. Bond.
