When M reads the Tennyson poem in the courtroom you get goosebumps, because you detect the truth in the words. Epic. Also, the shootout at the Skyfall Lodge reminds me of an old American Western. In the words of Bond: "Some men are coming to kill us. We're going to kill them first."
Is this movie formulaic at times, and hard to believe? Of course, it's a movie, and we watch movies to escape. But there are also some important themes in the film: loyalty, honor, perseverance, duty, integrity, courage. We need more of this in "action movies."
Dashing Daniel Craig is the best Bond ever in all Bond movies and in Skyfall he's just terrific! He portrays a Bond that is so vulnerable and yet so strong! Javier Bardem is irresistible to watch with superb acting that you can't help to momentarily sympathize with him until he starts blasting things here and there and threatens Mr. Bond. Can't say we love Q but he helps Mr. Bond a lot so we forgive him. Love Judi Dench as M so tender at heart and yet so ruthless at work. Ralph Phiennes is great as usual. All together we can sense the emotion of all the characters in this one and can somewhat understand the reason why they act the way they do however unjustifiable.
Can't stop watching Skyfall again and again over time. It's a brilliant movie and we'll recommend it to all.
Craig, however, surprised me in a good way. As physically rugged as Connery, he brings a darker and more intense feel to the role and that is never more apparent than in "Skyfall." In it, the writers give us not only action - and plenty of it - but also a deeper understanding of Bond's often complicated relationship with "M" - played to perfection by Judi Dench - and the demons that haunt him. Javier Bardem, as the villainous "Mr. Silva" - provides a nice counterbalance to Bond: It is easy to imagine that 007 could well have gone to the dark side for the same reasons.
Well worth the price of admission?
Bond deals with a man having stolen sensitive information, information his boss M badly wants back. An act of desperation on M's part leads to Bond being wounded and worse, the stolen information used against her and MI6. Bond returns to face this anonymous threat as he and M are on a path of great danger. Definitely one of the most realistic of James Bond stories, worthy of a Fleming novel. Though a bit to serious as very few jokes and one liners are told, some lovely women and a few gadgets.
Great to get this on Blu-Ray for that Digital Copy.
