James Bond film #23 (Daniel Craig Bond)
Note: This review is spoiler-free, so read without fear.
It’s been 4 years since the last Bond movie, the longest gap between two films with the same Bond actor, but Daniel Craig returns for Skyfall 50 years after Dr. No (1) was released in 1962. Though the story arc that spanned across his first two films has come to an end, Skyfall continues to delve deeper into Bond’s and M’s personal lives, exploring the history behind their relationship through the eccentric villain played by Javier Bardem. Most good Bond movies are usually strong in some areas but weak in others; Skyfall has the unique position of being categorically awesome. It’s hard to fairly judge a movie the night of its release, but Skyfall just might be the best Bond movie in the entire series.
