Skyfall… i'm confused
Skyfall was utter crap. It screamed of “we came close to canning this so finish it cheaply”.
The series of crucial coincidences needed for the baddies plan to work was comic even by Roger Moore’s standards.
Not to mention taking the Aston as “company cars have trackers”. Well, the DB5 was his company car and it did have a tracker.
Decision time for the studio, are they going for “serious” cinema? If so get a decent script editor with a shovel to fill in the gaping plot holes. If it’s not going to be serious then they can cheer the miserable bugger up a bit.Posted 4 years agoChubbyBlokeInLycraMember
In the books, and the Connery films, Bond had a sadistic dark side. M was aware of this and it was suggested in the books that he had an element of that during his days as an agent which is why Bond was rehabilitated following his attempt to kill M, rather than just disposed of. New M is probably closer to book M than any M so far, apart from being a bit on the young side to be a former agent with the field experience he’s supposed to have.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Johnny storm – the db5 was a company car before. In Craig era bond he actually won it in a card game.
I thought that worked, up until it had machine guns fitted. Either that was a Q-thing or Bond had MACHINE GUNS FITTED TO HIS OWN ACTUAL CAR.
There is some real silliness in the middle but still, Craig Best Bond, and Skyfall second best Bond film. But then I lack rose tinted specs, most bonds and most bond films are crap.
I thought new M was portrayed well- through most of the film you see him basically through old M’s eyes, and she sees him as the enemy- but actually it’s just differences of approach, they’re on the same side wanting the same thing.Posted 4 years agomartinhutchSubscriber
Too right – QOS was utter, utter tripe, with just about the worst film title I’ve ever encountered. Skyfall was at least watchable tripe. And Voldemort will make a good M.
Having said that, I actually sat through most of Superman III with the kids yesterday and it makes QOS look like Lawrence of Arabia.Posted 4 years agowoody74Subscriber
Not a fan of Skyfall myself. I think it is the worst of the Craig Bond films. My view is films like this always go a bit tits up when they try to be clever and reinvent themselves to much. Bond films should be distinctly different than the Bourne style films as Bond is meant to have MI6 and all its gadgets behind him, not some rouge agent running around Europe as that Bourne style.Posted 4 years ago
