5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the best Daniel Craig 007 Bond movie with all the bells and whistles., December 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Skyfall (DVD)
I've been very disappointed with the previous two "007" movies because of the lack of traditional humor and specific things that went into all of the previous 007 movies. (I've seen all of the "007" movies when they came out starting with Dr. No., and I have all of the DVD's, which replaced the VHS versions that I had as they became available.) I took my six-year old daughter to see the double billing of "From Russia with Love" and "Dr. No." She is now a grandmother of four.

Now the producers have seen fit to bring back the action theme music during 007's chases that I've heard for years, and I was unhappy that it was eliminated from the two previous Daniel Craig movies. (Spoiler) Additionally they brought "Q" back, with his magic tools and Miss Moneypenny. Hooray! Best of all, Adele sang a theme song filled with the sounds and emotions of the traditional Bond movies. It's more than likely to get an Oscar nod, as many of the previous opening them songs did.

The live action stunts that Bond movies are known for, were excellent, including an excellent plot and fine editing, which kept me on the edge of my seat. I was pleased that Bond still likes his drink "shaken," even though it was eluded to very subtly and previously put down in "Casino Royale."

The only questions reamaining now that I'm satisfied with Craig, is are we getting another new "Bond" for the next movie, and will the theme music and classic "007" approach to the movies be used appropriately from now on?
