Aro Favourite Skyfall

 

UK 2012, 143 minutes
Dir. Sam Mendes
Rating: [M]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Suspense / Spy

Topics: James Bond.

 

“A full-blooded, joyous, intelligent celebration of a beloved cultural icon.”~Roger Ebert

Aroview: Bond’s 50th anniversary outing is his most spectacular and serious yet, with 007 drawn back to London, and eventually his Scottish homeland, in defense/escape of a concerted attack on MI6, lead by a vengeful former agent (Javier Bardem).

Under the classy direction of Sam Mendes, this plays to type with out-of-this-world locations and exciting set pieces in never ending supply, while also subtly rejuvenating the Bond universe with the injection of new cast members in familiar or overlooked supporting roles. Daniel Craig is once again dependably muscular and rough-around-the-edges, although it is Bardem’s over-the-top, slightly campy turn as the main villain that helps maintain a perfect equilibrium between the old and the new.
