James Bond is a character that has lived on for 50 years in film and I'm thankful. Thunderball was the first film I ever remember seeing and it captured me into loving films. Its a character that means so much to me. This film pays tribute and homage to the past, but advances in the future and is truly its own thing.Acting, writing, direction, beautiful cinematography make me watch this film over and over again.
oh bond.. stop wearing a suit, will you? i can't handle my carnal desires for god's sake.
Don't believe what you were told. If you want real James Bond action (re)watch Casino Royale.
Now, here is a Bond movie that is set apart from all other Bond movies. I can't believe its taken me this long to see it but it was worth the wait as I was totally engrossed right from the beginning. Despite it's running time I barely even noticed the time go by. Sam Mendes makes this movie look good, his classy direction and the amazing and breathtaking cinematography did it for me. Javier Bardem seemed to ham it up a bit but I did like his character and how he portrayed him, what can you say about Daniel Craig that hasn't already been said, he's fantastic as Bond, nuff said. Possibly one of the best action films this decade.
I can't remember a more cataclysmic Bond. The last scene clearly references Hitchcock's first Hollywood feature, "Rebecca." And I don't think it's an accident. Mendes is deliberately putting Bond through the psychological muck. After all, who can have light fun in times like these? (More in my review: Cataclysmic Bond)
Sam Mendes risorge Bond. E non solo nel fim. La parola di 007 arriva al suo apice. è il film della rinascita di un personaggio che sembrava non aver più niente da dire, ma lui è Bond e ritorna sempre. Il migliore della saga. Forse a pari merito con lo splendido Goldfinger.
My favorite film of 2012. Consistently setting up- then taking the piss out of- Bond archetypes. Look at it this way- if Roger Moore had been given this script, he would've had a stroke to stop his eyebrow from arching. The franchise was waiting for an actor and then it got a whole cast-ful to pull off this celebration of Bond's greatest relationship.
The only one of the few Bonds I know, which made me wish watching them all. Thought of Black Mirror, partly because of Rory Kinnear, but also because of the enemies-in-the-shadow-question. Skyfall solved the question quite accordingly to the series nature, and in a far less contemporary way than Black Mirror, but at the same time proved how far from a film Black Mirror actually is, how obstinate it makes its point.
