Skyfall (2012)

80SkyfallSomeone is targetting James Bond’s secret service agency, and seems to have a personal grudge against M. This 007 film provides the expected thrills and suspense, but it also benefits from an unpredictible plot and stylish cinematography. Javier Bardem makes a believably unhinged villain. In honour of the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie, Skyfall features several fun moments meant to pay homage to the older installments, such as a henchman reminiscent of Oddjob, and a gadget-outfitted Aston Martin (accompanied by the classic Bond theme on the soundtrack). However, the dialogue, perhaps attempting to recall the double-entendres of the Connery/Moore-era films, comes off as clunky when it tries to be clever.
