Skyfall Film Review!

Skyfall is very good!

Ben Whishaw as always is fabulous!

Skyfall is brilliant! The cast is incredible which includes Daniel Craig as James Bond, Ben Whishaw as the young Q, Javier Bardem as Silva, Judi Dench as M, Naomie Harris as Eve, Ralph Fiennes as Gareth Mallory, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Berenice Marlohe as Severine, Albert Finney as Kincade and Ola Rapace as Patrice.

Daniel Craig is amazing as James Bond. He’s very natural in the role and is definitely up there as one of the best Bonds of all-time. Actually my three favourite Bonds would be him, Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

My favourite character is Q. Whishaw plays him perfectly with humour and nerdiness. I always loved the older Q the best in the older Bond films so I was looking forward to seeing how Ben, who is one of my favourite actors, would protray the younger Q and he did so perfectly.

But the cast as a unit ensured that the film was amazing. Each of them are very natural, talented actors and actresses so it made it very realistic.

And the writing was great. Though I liked the old Bonds I prefer the newer ones. There is more of a storyline to them and I’m a person who values story and character above all else with a film so I enjoy them more so credit must go to Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan for bringing Ian Fleming’s world to life so well.

Almost all of Q’s lines are lines I love so there’d be too many to list but as well as the fabulous Q’s amazing one-liners I also liked the man at the train station’s line about Bond been eager to get on the train when he jumped and onto the back of the train, “ and also when Bond says to his old innkeeper when he meets him about him still been alive.

The song Skyfall by Adele is also so amazing and the way they fit it in at the beginning with the story and the graphics is perfect so credit must go to  Danny Kleinman who did an amazing job.

Another fantastic element to the story is the three strong females. Traditionally in Bond films the females are usually just there to look pretty and show what a big man Bond is but in this film the three women are strong in their own ways with M running the show, Eve been Bond’s accomplice for part of the film and Severine been scared but remaining strong despite her fear of Silva.

It was a fantastic film directed by Sam Mendes bringing Bond wonderfully up-to-date while still retaining the essence of the old Bond films and perfect for celebrating the 50th Bond.
