SKYFALL Movie Review




Bond is back with a bang! It would have been much easier for director Sam Mendes to follow all the mainstream check-marks on the template of the 007 series, but instead he poses a few vital questions to the relevance of the fifty-year-old British franchise. Who is Bond? What is his role? Is he a man with a future, or an irrelevant relic trapped in the past? Have M, Bond and even Her Majesty’s Secret Service outlived their usefulness? These questions seem to be indicative of the aging process. Well, the James Bond character is about to put those questions to the test, in this latest release. As an avid follower of the franchise I dare say that there has never been a better job of disbursing the question of the secret agent’s relevance.

Judging from Skyfall, the series is as healthy as it has ever been and this 23rd entry of the world’s most durable franchise (Wikipedia.org) is among the best of the Bond series, despite the sputtering slip-up that was Quantum Solace. This latest release shows that Bond is back on track and proving that the aging, technology and bravado are all useless without the wisdom and experience to bring it all together. READ FULL REVIEW
