Skyfall - Good action, bad 007
Skyfall - has all the hallmarks of a good action flick - exciting chases, exploding cars and buildings, prolonged gunfights, train and car wrecks, prolonged shoot outs, great special effects and so on. But it completely lacks the hallmarks of a good James Bond flick - his urbane sophistication, clever quips, double ententre's, Q's cool gadgets, uniquely interesting bad guys, smart solutions to see
mingly impossible situations. This James Bond can't even think of anything better to do with the sexy women than to get in the shower with one. How original! The Bond sentimentality toward the end of the film and the "OK Now I'm Really Mad" scene made me want to throw something at the screen. That's NOT James Bond. If you want to see a good action flick, go see Skyfall. If you want to see a good James Bond flick, go rent Goldfinger.
