"Skyfall" 10 Scale Rating: 8.0 (Great)...
The Good: While it still retains a lot of the classic Bond elements that have made the franchise great, it is also a very different Bond movie from the rest of the recent films. Not the same old stuff we are used to seeing from Craig's Bond. Well written with a great story, a great rebound from a decent (but not great) Quantum of Solace.
The Bad: Drags on somewhat in the middle as we get a lot of conversation that wasn't as interesting as one would hope. It felt like they were having a difficult time balancing the action and the intrigue. Javier Bardem is a great actor and the villain he played was well written and creative ... but he was a bit of a let down. I expected more from him.
