Mars Review: Bond is back, and he’s bad. And that’s good. This is Bond as interpreted by the British director Sam Mendes and shot by the renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins, and one of the first things that strike you is how sumptuous it (and Bond) looks. The movie makes a claim that can’t be matched by many Bond films: It’s actually about something. “Skyfall” will take its place among the best of the movies in the 50-year Bond franchise. It is a transitional film, introducing new characters while bidding a sad farewell to some veterans.
