Typhon's Review of Skyfall
Gritty, well-paced and nostalgic, the latest entry in the Bond franchise is an impressive one. The story is a simple enough one, which dives into the personal side of a few of its characters. It takes Bond all over the world, to various spectacularly lighted locales such as Shanghai and Macau. The action is flurried and quick, shorter and more intense than the traditional prolonged action sequences from earlier films. I wasn't sure what to think about the villain, Silva. I don't think that he got as much screen time as needed, and as so, wasn't as fleshed out and understood so much as he could have been. Overall, one of the best entries in the longest running movie series.
