Skyfall is the 23rd instalment of the longest-running film franchise of all time, the James Bond series. Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Revolutionary Road), this action-packed film is a culmination of everything that makes 007 great, along with nods to the humour found in previous films. James Bond (Daniel Craig) finds his loyalty to M (Judi Dench) tested as her past returns to haunt her. When MI6 comes under attack from a cyber-terrorist, 007 must do everything it takes to track down the threat. Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Vicky... Cristina Barcelona) is superb as the sinister villain, Raoul Silva, and as the film unfolds you discover his dark past. - A.D. [show more]
SOMETIMES the old ways are the best. From Adele's award winning Shirley Bassey-esque title song to the film paying homage to the 22 previous films for the 50th anniversary simply by being a great, old-school Bond film. Throw in Bardem who is the perfect Bond villain: both charismatic and just enough humanity to offset the pure evil.
Director Sam Mendes has done a masterful job of pulling this story together. Skyfall might run for nearly two and a half hours, but the tightly edited film only feels like 90 minutes. Enjoy!
