Like most people I’m a James Bond fan and have been particularly impressed with the Daniel Craig reboot. Ridiculous card scenes aside, I really enjoyed Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace but I think Skyfall might be the best of the three. With the franchise now in the capable hands of Sam Mendes you get all the tricks and treats you’d expect from a Bond film but with a little added wit and substance. The supporting cast this go-round is excellent with Javier Bardem playing one of the creepiest Bond villains yet. There are perfectly tailored suits, gorgeous women, fast cars, exotic locations and plenty of action but it’s the Bond backstory that pushes Skyfall past being simply a cheap thrill ride. Anyone who has enjoyed this series over the years is almost certain to be impressed by the latest chapter.
