I am actually quite surprised that this movie is getting a lot of good reviews. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t anything special. I actually prefer ‘Quantum of Solace’ over this one.
I think these bond movies aren’t much about the main story as they are the trademark introductions. In ‘Quantum of Solace’ it was the cards to resemble the poker game, in ‘Skyfall’ it was graveyards, to represent death. The song by the same name (Skyfall) by Adele is really nice, I love it. It played in the introduction which took like 5 minutes.
My family says that it had too much talking in this one, though it was quite OK with me. The best part for me would be the beginning as it was more action-packed. After that the action was pretty much mild.
Also everyone knows that Bond films are made up of 3 characteristics: gadgets, women and cars. In this movie his only gadget was a gun and radio…and the women he was with were brief and when the scenes came on were quite random. And he had one car which granted was customized, however was ancient.
Yes…I can not believe that there’s going to be another 3 more films or so? What else is there to make? What other possible story-line is there for James Bond? It was successful now people should just let it go. =] So as to not totally ruin its reputation.
I give this a 6.5/10.
