Daniel Craig's Best Bond Movie,
This review is from: Skyfall [DVD] (DVD)
With the impressive "Casino royale" to the disappointing "Quantum of solace", Daniel Craig's third outing as James Bond in "Skyfall" is probably his best. The reason why this is his best is because the movie has a great storyline, there is the entertaining bond theme tune, impressive nasty performance from Javier Bardem, comic performance from Ben Whishaw as Q and last but not least the classic Aston Martin DB5 which was used in "Goldfinger", which makes this an origianl old school bond film. Also the action sequences are very entertaining such as the sequence when Bond is chasing after bad guy Raoul Silver in the London underground and the action sequence towards the end which takes place in Bonds house which he was brought up. Sam Mendes who directed some great films such as "American beauty" and "Road to perdition" does a wonderful job in directing this movie. Spainish actor Javier Bardem does a superb performance as the nasty Raoul Silver who steals every scene he's in. It was also good to see Q in this movie which Ben Whishaw done a very good performance as the geeky gadget man and this is unbelievably the first Daniel Craig Bond movie to have Q in it. If you are a fan of James Bond then this movie is well worth watching and I would give it 8/10.

I'm not a major James Bond fan. I haven't bothered to see "Quantum Of Solace" because so many people said it was garbage. It is necessary see it to appreciate "Skyfall" or can I go straight to the new film?

It's probably worth watching quantum of solace first because you might like the movie.

@Robin, Skyfall was my first James Bond movie, and I had no problems at all in picking up the pace and the plot. I don't think prior knowledge of Casino Royale or Quantum Of Solace is essential to enjoy Skyfall. With that said, I did then go back and watch the other two Daniel Craig outputs, so I suppose it may make sense to try and watch them in order. If you were asking about QoS however, I would definitely recommend seeing CR first as the two are clearly much more interlinked (CR generally being regarded as the better of the two). Skyfall kind of stands alone (and is brilliant, I might add). :-)

Thank you. I think I'll go straight to "Skyfall" and, if I like it, I'll try "Quantum Of Solace" too.
