Having just seen Skyfall, I must say I was impressed, it is an excellent film, with wonderful directing and acting. It does lack the "kapow" of Bond films from the Roger Moore era onwards, and is by far the better for it. I would say that it takes the strengths of arguably the best Bond, Sean Connery, and builds on the style of the earliest films.
I cannot remember the last time I was so absorbed in a Bond film, actually caring about the characters, and being a little surprised at the depth of character development.
Daniel Craig can act. His subtle facial gestures expressing a wealth of emotions, the paradox of the cold blooded killer that puts loyalty above all else.
There were some fine performances from the tried and tested Judie Dench, a cold but motherly M, supported by a good Ralph Feines and the younger actors, particularly the new Q.
At the end of the movie (that I saw in Nicosia, Cyprus) we all spontaneously cheered! Now that was I surprise.
Go and see it, buy it, watch it late at night, treat yourself to a really decent film. When was the last time that you could look forward to doing that at the cinema or at home?
