News & Interviews for Skyfall

Critic Reviews for Skyfall

All Critics (365) | Top Critics (58)

  • A Bond film should feature a menacing villain who's also just a touch daffy; Javier Bardem has more fun than anybody else onscreen as a rogue agent with a mommy complex and a come-hither leer.

  • It's been a long time since I enjoyed a Bond movie so much.

  • Skyfall is not, of course, ''darker'' or more serious than previous Bond films, but it's more knowing about its own conventions.

    Nov 22, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 'Quantum of Solace,' was a dour, dire letdown. This picture's a substantial bounce back, and easily the best Craig Bond picture. Emotional depth and all.

  • The cool accomplishment of Skyfall, 23rd in the Broccoli franchise, is that it seems a necessary, rather than mandatory, addition to the year's popular culture.

    Nov 9, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Among the most ambitious imaginings of Bond to date: dark, supple, and punctuated with moments of unanticipated visual brilliance.
