  1. I actually liked this movie, much to my surprise! Given that I had hated the Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, I really wasn’t expecting much from this one!

    I think wharmt worked in the movie was the more traditional Bond, not the emotion wreck from the first two movies! Javier Bardem was, as always, exceptional and Judi Dench was awesome. I still don’t like Craig much though. Give me Connery or Brosnan anyday!

    • To be honest I was expecting the same old James Bond movie all over again! Boy was I surprised!!

      I really likes Javier Bardem as I previously mentioned, to me he was the greatest performer from the cast 🙂
      I agree that Craig lacks emotional appeal but he pulled off the role pretty well this time 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback,
      Cheers!

  2. Hello There. I discovered your blog the usage of msn. This is a very well written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your helpful information. Thanks for the post. I will definitely comeback.

  3. I was disappointed when it didn’t win the Academy Award for best cinematography, I thought it was a very beautiful looking movie. Skyfall was one of my favourites of 2012. Great review Arena, short and to the point.

  4. the sean connery-bond films are largely overrated. if you were to watch them today, you would laugh at the silliness of the villains and especially their “henchmen” or guards. the uniforms and the awful conveniences are beyond belief. i recently rewatched “goldfinger” because i hadn’t seen it since i was a kid back in the 70’s, and i could not believe that i once thought it was a fabulous film. i plan to watch “from russia, with love” and see if the same holds up for that one, also considered a great film.

    • I really enjoyed reading your feedback 🙂
      I completely agree with you after I recently watched “From Russia with Love”. It is quite amusing considering the amount of special effects in Skyfall and other action films nowadays!
      Cheers x

  5. Skyfall is my favorite Daniel Craig Bond movie, because it deals with him as an aging secret agent. he’s lost a step, he can’t shoot straight, he’s definitely wondering if it’s time to call it a day. Bardem really does steal the show, I liked his character, he added a lot of fun to the movie.

    I’m old school about Bond though, I love the Sean Connery Bond, Dr. No, Goldfinger, those are my favorites.

    Here’s my review of Skyfall:

    • I totally agree with you and you couldn’t be more right! Although many people don’t support my decision to watch the old Bond films they are definitely fabulous! The Daniel Craig Bond is quite low key and his character doesn’t show much emotion but this doesn’t stop his charm and talent in the espionage field. Great review you have there friend, keep writing 🙂
