Review: Skyfall May Be the Best James Bond Movie Yet

How does one build a 50-year-old film franchise new again? By lease it feel its age.

With wry geriatric jokes, a plot that strikes 007 right wherever he lives and even some throwback gadgets, Skyfall provides fictional character a delightfully retro revive. It conjointly establishes Daniel Craig, World Health Organization plays Bond, because the solely man World Health Organization will rival Sean Connery as lord of the spies.

Turns out, the primary step in renewing Bond is to kill him. underneath orders to shoot a remote operative carrying an inventory of Britain's on the quiet agents, Bond's fellow spy Eve (Naomie Harris) accidentally hits 007.

The master spy uses the incident to disappear, however he returns to MI6 once he learns his boss M (Judi Dench) is that the target of terrorists. when sparring with a disturbingly young  new Q (Cloud Atlas's mountain Whi­shaw), James tracks down the villain, a mastermind named woodland (Javier Bardem), World Health Organization is by turns screaming and deeply creepy.

Director surface-to-air missile Mendes provides the solid house to try and do quite dodge bullets, however the action sequences and beautiful locations (be ready for a sudden  urge to go to Shanghai) do not cross. The result? a movie that honors the Bond tradition and makes the spy feel all relevant – provided his creaky knees hold out.
