Skyfall

Director: Sam Mendes, Main Cast: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench , Javier BardemNaomie HarrisBen WhishawRalph FiennesAlbert Finney

Far better than the last installment of the 007 series but that does not really say much. It brings back a little humor with tongue in cheek references to the golden era of James Bond. Our favorite spy is a little worse for wear due to his hobby and his beloved country is under attack. The villain du jour has a personal grudge and a penchant for computers… he even outwits the new Q (brilliant Ben Whishaw)! But his thirst for vengeance has the better of him and he goes overboard, so our hero saves the day. As action goes the film really delivers and the cinematography is pretty spectacular. Judi Dench is always impeccable as M and Daniel Craig can fight like a pro and wear a Tom Ford suit with style (still, he is not my favorite 007). I’ve enjoyed very much Albert Finney’s part: cantankerous and ironic. All in all, a quality Bond movie. —6.5/10

  2. As a self-confessed Bond nerd, I totally geeked out at the end when Eve revealed she was Moneypenny, and Bond stepped into the office with the new M and it was all a throwback to the classic Bond films. Definitely my favorite of the Craig Bond films 🙂
