Summary: This is Bond. This is how it should have been since the end of the Connery era for the franchise. No gimmicks, no camp, no stupid attempts at fitting in with the times. The action, the character development, the script, and the villain especially are all fantastic.

Excerpt: Skyfall is the most recent tale of our beloved British secret agent 007. After Bond is thought to have died a person from the past comes out of the shadows to wreck havoc on Agent M and the rest of MI 6. Now Bond has come out of retirement to help save the day. This is a fine film.
Excerpt: Directed by Sam Mendes Starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench 3.5/4 Sam Mendes has taken his role to direct the 23rd Bond movie. Mendes has roped in once again Daniel Craig as the 007 agent of MI6. After a wooden spoon with Quantum of Solace, Mendes brings back the lost bond in action.
Excerpt: Skyfall (2012) James Bond (Daniel Craig) must get back to basics to save M (Judi Dench) from a former spy (Javier Bardem) who is out to kill her and destroy MI6. This is a down and dirty, no frills James Bond film, with the exception of the open chase sequence (which is spectacular).
Excerpt: I have seen some reviews from various critics that call this the best Bond ever? Ummm in my opinion not quite however it was entertaining. Are they doing the new Bond films with Daniel Craig in storyline order?
Excerpt: To fully review a film such as this one has to appreciate the franchise, it's intricacies and the leads who played Bond. Typical for a Bond flick would be the gorgeous locations, spiffy gadgets, gorgeous ladies, typical one-lines, humor, well choreographed action and story about catching spies,...
