Mars Movie Reviews – Skyfall 007

Skyfall 007

Movie Info: In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. — (C) Official Site

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.

Stars: 3 out of 5

  1. What do you think about the direction the last 3 bond movies have headed in (i.e. becoming a bit more psychological rather than shooting at bad guys and banging random girls)? I loved Skyfall, but yet another movie where the bond girl doesn’t even come close to vesper..

    1. I feel that Skyfall is finally a real reboot of he series, as in continuing character development and not just normal Spy’s and Villians that Bond is so famous for. I’m looking forward to the next installment now that Bond has a real personality and some direction. As for the Bond girls, Vesper is has been the best of the new lot, but I’ve never felt invested in these characters before as they die off so quickly.
