Who'd have thought a new James Bond film could be good,hit all the buttons in term of story,villain,M, topicality,setting,even be able to look down on the Bourne franchise as a young pretender,that's lost its hero. Directed superbly by Sam Mendes,set chiefly in England( in the year of the Olympics and Daniel Craig's Bond dropping in to Buckingham Palace to pick up the Queen and parachute her in to stadium).In place of the Queen we have Judy Dench's M,treating her agents mean,keeping them keen,Bond's adoptive mother.Javier Bardem plays Raul Silva,the best Bond villain in ages,with the camp of a Hannibal Lecter crossed with Julian Assange,the blonde hair flopping,an agent turned rogue,involved in cyber-terrorism.Bond is shot by fellow agent Moneypenny(Harris),while trying to retrieve a stolen hard-drive containing the identities of Nato agents.

He returns from the dead ruggedly shaken(he fails the physical) to guard the woman who caused him to be shot.M herself is under scrutiny under pressure to resign from Mallory(Fiennes)after MI6 is bombed.M's antagonist Silva acts on matricidal emotions that Bond himself represses.This realism grounds the film,often mired in absurdity and fantasy, and the intelligence is upgraded.M quotes Tennyson's Ulysses.Bond meets geeky Q(Wishaw) in the National Gallery in front of Turner's The Fighting Temeraire,to draw a parallel between the scrapyard-bound warship and Bond's obsolescence.Casino Royale set the template of the new Craig Bond and would be hard to better,based as it was on the best Fleming novel.This is a great follow up on Bond's 50th anniversary.

There is an homoerotic scene between Bond and Silva which is highly comic.The Oedipal relationship with M is a new twist.

A billion-dollar earner, and the winner of two Oscars (Best Original Song and Best Sound Editing), this James Bond film - released in the series' 50th anniversary year - is a crowd-pleasing adventure. Bond is injured, presumed dead, in a mission, but comes back to work when MI6 is threatened by a cyber-terrorist. Bond tracks down the culprit, only to find that things are far more complex - and more personal - than they had initially seemed.

Skyfall is a great-looking film - the eye-popping cinematography is by the massively talented Roger Deakins - and it's grand entertainment, repaying repeated viewings. (I've seen it five times already!) But it is not quite as wonderful as general opinion suggests. The story sags a bit in its second half, a key female supporting character is unceremoniously bumped off in an inexplicably callous scene, and I think it was a mistake to focus on Bond getting a bit old for his job, when only two films ago he was the unschooled young buck.

That said, the film has some terrific sequences, from the opening chase in Istanbul to the humour of Bond's training session, from a neon-lit assassination in Shanghai to a smoky casino sequence in Macau. Indeed, pretty much the entire first half is a wonderfully flowing drama. The film takes an odd route about three quarters of the way through - and viewers may question Bond's decision to go to such a remote location at such a crucial moment in the story - but the ending redeems the film in properly moving fashion. Plus, the film has probably last year's most famous song - the title tune sung by Adele - and enough action and humour to convert non-Bond fans.

Overall, then, Skyfall, while not as inventive as Casino Royale nor as radical as Quantum of Solace, is solid and spectacular, and there's a good chance you'll like it a lot. Oh, and Judi Dench is perfection as M.

A baddie who has nicked a list of all the worldwide undercover operatives in terrorist organizations, is threatening to release the names of the individuals concerned if M doesn't give herself up to him, so she calls in her favourite attack dog, the best secret agent in the whole wide world, ever, James Bond...
A mostly entertaining Bond film, which despite its probably excessive runtime never gets dull. I didn't watch Quantum of Solace, due to both the poor reviews it received and the fact it sounded like a brand of suntan lotion, but with the exception of that film and Die Another Day (another stinker by all accounts), I have seen all the Bond films several times over the years. This one coming up about slightly higher than average. Which, for such a strong franchise is no mean feat. Bardem is good, Craig is good, Dench ~ for a Bond girl, is not so good, but fortunately she does refrain from wearing a bikini! There's one or two exciting action set pieces, with the finale taking place at Bond's incestral [sic] home in Scotland. An ending that although is well crafted, lacks inventiveness.
Dunno what all the Oscar fuss was over the title track either? As the song , though admittedly well sung, was dull and rather formulaic, and when compared to other Oscar winners such as Isaac Hayes with Shaft you have to wonder why it is so highly regarded?!
I found the story fairly underwhelming over all but I think that that possibly worked in the films favour for me.
With all said and done, it is without doubt a solid actioner, however one does wonder if it will still receive the same level of glowing praise 10 years from now, which any viewers of a contrary disposition should take note of before viewing this and go giving it the 1 star backlash it doesn't deserve, after all this is no more a 1 star film, than it is a 5 star one...
The dvd looks as you would expect! All extras fat and shiny!
3.5/5 star Bond rounded up.
