Synopsis: Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Release Date: November 9, 2012
Thoughts: Ah…Bond is back. It’s been nearly four years since his last adventure and while many were left unsatisfied with Quantum of Solace on repeated viewings I see what the franchise was going for. It’s still not my favorite entry but it existed as a way to end a particular chapter on the Bond saga. With that taken care of, the series is free to explore a new storyline and the description of Skyfall sounds quite juicy. With director Sam Mendes at the helm expect a different kind of action film with expertly designed camera shots and more nuanced performances from all involved. With the film adding Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, and Javier Bardem to the roster (as well as a new Q!) I’m counting down the days to Bond’s arrival. Once we get a little closer to the release date I’ll be reviewing all of the Bond films for the blog – stay tuned!
