Skyfall was the best standalone Bond film since Goldfinger. I enjoyed every last second of it, especially the nods to the other films. The new Q has great chemistry with Bond and Javier Bardem's Silva was almost hypnotic in his psychosis.
This film wiped away the sins of Quantum of Solace, giving Craig's best performance as Bond and one of the best films in the entire franchise. Judi Dench, especially, has the biggest role of any M before her, and the relationship between her and Bond is the heart of the film. I recommend you watch this movie with a martini. Shaken not stirred.
This was by far one of the best Bond films and the best one starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. The film was exciting and enormously entertaining. I loved how they flip some of the familiar Bond tropes on their head; like the opening sequence and the Bond girl to name a few. Daniel Craig is at his finest in the role of Bond, delivering a performance that is absolute perfection.
It was nice to see Judi Dench's M in a larger role and partaking more in the action. Javier Bardem is the best villain of the Craig era films. He dominates every scene he is in and is so much fun to watch. An incredibly excellent installment in the Bond franchise and a hard one to top.
