Bond is back: Skyfall Review

By Grant Vance
On November 21, 2012

Skyfall, to say the least, made a statement that James Bond is back and he isn't going anywhere anytime soon. In the business of "resurrection," as Mr. Bond would say, Skyfall is successfully reminding audiences everywhere just what Bond is all about and why we have grown to love his secret agent antics. With the presence of a new story, an abundance of Easter eggs, small cameos and a great cast, the 50th anniversary of James Bond is nothing short
of a triumph. In the opening scene we are immediately drawn into a high intensity chase of Bond attempting to re-acquire a stolen list of MI-6 agents. While the chase escapades unfold, leading to a bad call from long time MI-6 supervisor, "M" (Judi Dench), Bond accidentally is shot by his fellow agent and assumed dead. From here the plot unfolds as we discover (shocking twist) Bond still kicking and womanizing as usual. The plot for this film is enjoyable; it's rich in origin and has a villain that you love so
much, he is hard to hate. Speaking in terms of the villain,
the portrayal of Raoul Silva, played by actor Javier Bardem, is incredibly fun to watch. Bardem plays out the character to be one of the most memorable antagonists I have seen in a while. With his joker-esque attitude and his compelling history with "M," Raoul Silva will have an open seat with the villainous table of greats for years to come. While Skyfall isn't without its faults, it certainly proved to be the classic James Bond movie everyone has been waiting to see since Casino Royale. It would have almost made more sense to have had Skyfall as the first installment into the Daniel Craig chapter of James Bond. Skyfall is a must see
for Bond and movie fans alike. Go grab your shaken Martinis and get ready to introduce yourself by saying your last name before your first. Bond is back.
