Tim's Review of Skyfall

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


The film does everything a Bond film does and in many ways does it pretty well and I even started to warm to Craig as Bond near the end. His interactions with the young lady eventually revealed as a new Moneypenny were great and I wish they had spent more time on their relationship. My problem is ultimately the villain and his plot. Caution spoilers ahead. After his capture I quickly realized they were about to do the whole "he wanted to get captured" routine and as is normal it is terrible. Layer on the convoluted planning and infiltration necessary to make it all work and it just sucked me right out of the movie. The fact that Craig is so good at the end of the film helped me fight off the boredom of Bardem's villain.
