Topic: Skyfall....A Personal View...With NO Spoliers...
NO SPOILERS AS REQUESTED BY THE MANAGEMENT.
At just over 2 hours & 20 minutes Skyfall grabs you from the moment the lights go down in the auditorium much as Casino Royale did back in 2006 & Quantum failed to back in 2008.
The story & therefore the script is intelligent & moves along at quite a fast pace but stops to gather its breath with some great nostalgic set pieces giving a playful wink to Bonds past. The characters are fully developed within their own storylines. The Playful banter between Bond and his Quartermaster has undertones of those previously experienced between Pierce & Desmond. There is action, comedic elements & outright shock elements which make this a better Bond than Casino Royale which I did not think was possible and as many have previously suggested Skyfall may just be the greatest Bond movie to date & possibly ever? as this 50th Anniversary movie is a fitting tribute to Cubby Broccoli & Harry Saltzman. One of the best lines was delivered by Dame Judi Dench's "M". Bond 24 will really have to be someting special to surpass this fantastic movie. Simply put Skyfall works, even Adele's dulcet tones work with the incredible Daniel Kleinman titles as Adele sings it that "it" appears before your eyes on the silver screen....SKYFALL....DONE!
