Skyfall doesn’t reach the emotional depths of 2006’s Casino Royale—Daniel Craig’s first outing as MI6 secret agent James Bond—but it features jaw-dropping cinematography and set design, and some of the most exciting action scenes of the entire series.
Daniel Criag returns as James Bond, but ‘Skyfall’ offers more than the standard spy thriller. As the plot changes from international mystery to revenge story to home defense/giant metaphor, the clean, do-no-wrong exteriors of these characters that have been established over the last 50 years fade away.
After a long hiatus, we’re back. And we have 120 movies to work through. OK, Not really, just five.
