Skyfall....Best Bond Yet?,
This review is from: Skyfall (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)The first and obvious thing to say is i do not own a copy of Skyfall as it hasn't been released yet. However, i have been to see it twice at the cinema and although the first time around i felt slightly let down as it didn't have the huge great storyline that showcased Bond in saving the world... the second time around i was completely convinced that this is by far the best Bond film yet. Why? well without spoiling it for those that haven't seen it yet, Skyfall is the best looking and most believable bond yet, and while no bond can truly be realistic of what happens in the world this outing has come as close to realistic as possible. Everything from the music and theme by Adele to the acting, script and general storyline is spot on. Another aspect which i appreciated was that more of the film was based in the UK so you could relate to it more (although there were parts far and wide across the globe). Humor plays it's part as does the usual romance. From start to finish the film is gripping... my problem was i listened to all the hype surrounding the film before i watched it the first time around, my honest advice is watch it with an open mind and just enjoy the film and you'll love it. If you pre-order this Blu-ray edition please note that it's the region 2 version meaning it will work in UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa and Middle East ONLY! (just in case you were thinking of buying it as a gift for someone abroad). Also i would imagine that there will be behind the scenes footage on the disk (as usual) when the film is properly released.
PROS: After watching it twice i can firmly say that this is the best Bond Yet! Bond in Blu-ray, what more do you need?
CONS: I fail to see any and the pre-order price makes this good value
VERDICT: Best Bond by far and i will definitely be buying it when it's released, if you haven't seen it yet i suggest you go to a cinema and see it and/or wait and buy it when it's released
KNOCKOUT STUFF AND I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS BOND FILM!
