Skyfall Review

Erin Clevlen

Name: Skyfall

Director: Sam Mendes

Rating: PG-13

Release date: November 9, 2012

Run time: 143 minutes

The twenty-third James Bond movie with Daniel Craig returning as James Bond could possibly be the best one so far, with director Sam Mendes executing a suspenseful atmosphere that mixed in just the right amount of comedy and romance. The overall mission of James Bond this time around is to keep a top secret computer drive that has escaped headquarters from being leaked to the public. Through many action packed scenes, cleverly executed stunts, and in true James Bond fashion, many trysts with Bond girls, James locates the man behind the stealing who, to his surprise, is someone from M’s (Judi Dench) past. In order to retrieve the stolen drive, Bond has to relive his own past, however painful that may be. While many James Bond movies are packed with hollow fight and love scenes, this movie hit it right on the head. Skyfall keeps true Bond character with its dramatic flair, but allows audiences to see a deeper side of James Bond than ever before. This movie was the best one to date and, with a PG-13 rating, would be a perfect choice for mature audiences. Skyfall is currently playing at Lakeline and 1890 Ranch.

Rating: 4.5/5
