There have been times over the years when I wondered where the Bond franchise could possibly go next, in their attempt to top each previous movie. That’s perhaps one reason I wasn’t in a rush to watch Skyfall, the newest Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig as 007.
Skyfall is possibly the best Bond movie to date. It shows a human side of Bond, and explains some of the events from his past that helped shape him. It is simultaneously a return to many of the old-school aspects of the movies that fans love, and a humanization of an iconic figure. And it was well done.
I would recommend Skyfall even to people who aren’t Bond fans. It’s a good, enjoyable movie about determination and loyalty, and has something for almost all movie-goers to enjoy.
