The Sky iis Fallingce
If anything was going to rescue the Bond franchise, Skyfall absolutely did the job. Daniel Craig is a splendid James Bond. Ruggedly handsome with piercing blue eyes, Craig IS Bond. (I know, I know, Sean Connery was the penultimate Bond and Timothy Dalton wasn't bad, but Daniel Craig makes it his own).
There are a couple of gadgets (one old, one new), but they don't carry the film. It rests squarely on Daniel Craig's shoulders, and he carries it beautifully. Javier Bardem is fantastic; he conveys more with his facial expressions and intonations than anyone I've ever seen, and is worthy of an Academy Award nomination. M is there, of course, and is pivotal to this story.
This film is well worth the price of admission. GO!
