Bond At His Best

Review: Skyfall

Let me get right to the point; Skyfall is an awesome movie. It is as simple as that. Exciting, interesting, and visually stunning, the 23rd James Bond film is an instant classic in the 007 franchise.

The film follows Bond as he attempts to track down a madman with a mysterious connection to M's past.

In terms of plot, it is this relationship with M which truly sets Skyfall apart as more than a typical Bond film. Such a tactic makes the story more intimate and therefore more engaging than a worn-out threat of nuclear war or something else of that sort.

The action sets are exhillirating; from the tops of trains to rooms of reflecting glass to a long forgotten house from the past, each sequence is edge-of-your seat fun.

Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) has not only solidified his status as an iconic Bond, but in my opinion, is the best 007 since Sean Connery (Goldfinger). It's a more grounded and realistic interpretation of the hero, but Craig is still the smooth ladies-man and classy gentleman that makes Bond the hero of guys everywhere.
