Alan's Review of Skyfall
As exciting and dramatic as anyone has any right to expect from a franchise 50 years young, this 23rd Bond film treads the fine line between giving the die-hards what they want and to deviate as little as possible from the 'formula' while keeping the elements fresh and up-to-date. Keeping the story as straight and simple as possible, away from too many distractions and convolutions, the film breezes through its 2hrs plus duration with ease and style. This is as good as Casino Royale - and who knows maybe even as good as the old classics like Goldfinger or even OHMSS. Only time and repeated viewing will tell and I for one cant wait to revisit again.
