4.0 out of 5 stars I've never been a huge Bond fan but this film is indeed great, December 11, 2012
This review is from: Skyfall (Blu-ray)
Ok so right up front I've never been a huge bond fan. I saw quantum of solace before I saw casino royale. I did not really enjoy quantum of solace but rather enjoyed casino royale. So I went into this not really knowing what to expect. I must say I was rather impressed and entertained.

The story starts out with an intense chase scene that grabs your attention right away. It may have been over the top a bit but still it was awesome. Through the chase and a risky shot, Bond is left for dead. Of course he survives but remains "dead" to the world until he sees on the news that MI6 has been attacked. It seems that the terrorist behind the attack is always one step ahead. This film deals with Bond trying to prove to M and himself he still is the agent he always has been. MI6 is coming under heavy scrutiny for losing classified information all while "M" and Bond's relationship is stressed throughout the film.

Bond finally tracks down the terrorist behind the MI6 attacks to find that it is a former agent assumed dead. This agent is a cyber terrorist who has immense power and a vendetta against "M". He tries to recruit Bond but fails as Bond brings him in only to discover this was his plan all along. The films follows Bond, "M", and the terrorist Silva to a gripping and entertaining end.

The soundtrack is amazing. I literally can't get enough of Adelle and the Skyfall song. Action is great...maybe a little less action than some of the other Bond's but nonetheless great. The story is very very personal. Which I actually liked. I must say that this is a great film that every action fan and bond fan must see.

I thought the train scene was pretty spectacular to start things off. The booby traps they set at the end were good. The whole casino and skyscraper scene in china was pretty good. If gadgets and girls are your basis judging movies then I see your point.

I felt the rooftop chase on motorcycles in Istanbul was enhanced with CGI. I didn't feel the stuntwork was spectacular. The same goes for the fight on the train. The other scenes were just great colors and cinematography especially the skyscraper scene with all the reflections in the windows.
