Skyfall: Good but not Great
***No real spoilers to speak of***
Skyfall is, in every aspect, a good James Bond movie. I liked it. There are chase scenes, hand-to-hand combat, quirky gadgets (kind of), Bond girls, villains, beautiful scenery, and of course, James Bond. But I feel like all of these elements were just placed there. I didn't feel any grounding into the story or the interactions between the elements. I know that would have made the movie 4 hrs long, but I would have gladly traded some of the fluff for a bit more backstory on some characters.
So as I said, this is a "good" Bond movie but not a "great" Bond movie. Worth the price of admission...once.
