Skyfall is about to hit theatres tomorrow, November 8th 2012! One of the most anticipated movie this November and promises to give a new story to the James Bond franchise. Starring Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem, Skyfall is definitely creating excitement from critics to audiences. The introductions to this new action movie have been made all over the news since the trailer was aired. So let’s go ahead and check out the latest movie review for this new James Bond movie: Skyfall.
“Skyfall: The Best Bond Movie In History
In an early scene in “Skyfall,” an aging M angrily turns to James Bond and says, “You know the rules of the bloody game. We’ve played it long enough.”
Replies a battered and psychologically scarred Bond: “Maybe too long.”
“Skyfall” is the 23rd film in the franchise’s 50-year history, and at times, it has felt that, indeed, this spy game has gone on for too long. There have certainly been attempts at the tricky proposition of bringing Bond into the modern world while still keeping all those elements that have made it one of the most successful film series ever. It worked with 2006′s “Casino Royale” (the first to star Daniel Craig); not so much with 2008′s “Quantum of Solace.”
But with “Skyfall,” it turns out that there is still a lot of life in the world of 007. Once again starring Craig and directed by Sam Mendes (not anyone’s first choice to direct an action flick), this is a brilliant reboot of the canon, mixing a sense of melancholy, the shock of changing times and the darkness of loss with thrillingly staged chase and fight scenes and clever references to all that has come before.
On one hand, there is the car (yes, the iconic Aston Martin makes an appearance), the tuxedo, the casino scene, the exotic locales, the gorgeous women and Adele’s shimmering, sexy title song. But it is all underlined by the changing nature of the spy game, with danger coming from cyberterrorists who truly live in the shadows, a game driven not so much by country or political beliefs but by revenge, retribution and resurrection.
Keeping with the requirements of a Bond movie, “Skyfall” opens with a spectacular chase. It’s a particularly gripping one: through and over the rooftops of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar and onto a hurtling train, eventually involving Land Rovers, motorcycles and, oh, yes, a Caterpillar backhoe. But the end sends us tumbling into a darker place.
The chase is just one of several set pieces that are flat-out dazzling to behold. Mendes (“American Dream,” “Road to Perdition”) was savvy enough to sign up the extraordinary cinematographer Roger Deakins (“No Country for Old Men,” Mendes’ “Revolutionary Road”) to take on the varied looks that are part of “Skyfall.” A fight between Bond and a hit man in a Shanghai skyscraper is a thing of beauty, all color and neon. The final showdown at Bond’s ancestral home in the Scottish Highlands is a grim, gritty affair set in an imposing landscape.”
