Skyfall (Action 2012)

Yeah so I'm not seeing where all the extra hype is with this film. It was a Bond movie, so you know what it's going to be about and what to expect. A good intro, lots of action, a few dress-up scenes, a few girls, and some more action. Was it better than some of the other Bond films of late? Yes. Was it the best of all time? Maybe. I still have good memories of Casino Royale for some reason although I don't remember a damn thing about it.

One funny thing about this film was that all the chicks were hella inconsequential. They were all fancy in a few scenes and then poof, they were gone. One chick didn't even say a single word; I wonder if she'll even show up on IMDB. Hilarious knowing that she had just been used and cast away like an opened coconut.

The story in this one was quite different from the others and it had more depth to the character of Bond himself verses any other Bond film. The ending also led into a whole new generation of future films that are to come. Javier Bardem is a sick actor who totally played the part well, probably even more-so than Daniel Craig.  The chase scenes were kinda dated but the gun battles were quite nice. Overall it was a good action movie and one of the better Bond ones.
Rating - A
