Skyfall (2012)

Written By Neal Pursi, Robert Wade
Directed By Sam Mendes
Starring Daniel Craig

007 has lost a step in this one. He’s a bit older and angry at his commanding officer M. for a controversial order.  He doesn’t have that old excitement he once did as the international spy in the most impossible of situations. Now he's looking for the path of least resistance and the working smarter not harder.

For most of the film they keep you guessing. Does he still have what it takes or doesn’t he? You almost want to see him give up and a certain point. The honesty of an aging agent is that the rules still apply. The greatest agent gets by on his smarts not his muscles.

Craig does a great job of making and aging character dealing with aches and pains look good. He still has all the swagger of his younger days. The rest of the cast bolster him up well and bond always gets the girl. Judi Dench plays M. and she is always a wonderful character and hold such honesty on screen. Her face has so much to convey as her voice lingers in the air. Javier Bardem is a wonder to behold because his character is stranger and crazier then most horror film villains.

The best part of the film is when Bond sits down at the bar with his love interest and the bar tender shakes a martini. As the bartender poor bond a drink he says, “that’s just the way I like it!”

No rating. Its Bond… James Bond. You know what your getting.
