#Skyfall: impressions of the latest James Bond adventure

We saw #Skyfall this afternoon at our local Showcase cinema. Very hard to say much about it without being a total spoiler.

Five non-spoiler impressions:

  • Daniel Craig is a brilliant Bond, grittier and more credible than before. And he was highly credible before.
  • Javier Bardem, a bad guy so bad he’s… bad!
  • Brilliant new Q, the role and Ben Whishaw the actor both spot on.
  • Great focus on the characters and personalities, especially M.
  • Outstanding support roles by Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

In short, a terrific audio-visual treat, a Bond movie for today that gives a great nod to the past and Ian Fleming‘s original story-telling. This preview trailer is a great taster.
