Becky and I went to see the new movie SkyFall at the Regal Cinemas in Fruita, CO on opening night, after running The Rim Rock Canyon Marathon in Fruita, CO, earlier in the day. The Fandango website at Skyfall describes the movie as follows…
“When James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) latest assignment goes terribly wrong, it leads to a calamitous turn of events: Undercover agents around the world are exposed, and MI6 is attacked, forcing M (Judi Dench) to relocate the agency. With MI6 now compromised inside and out, M turns to the one man she can trust: Bond. Aided only by a field agent (Naomie Harris), Bond takes to the shadows and follows a trail to Silva (Javier Bardem), a man from M’s past who wants to settle an old score…”
The Review: Skyfall is the latest spy thriller starring Daniel Craig as special agent James Bond 007. The story is good, with an aging James Bond, who actually gets beat up and bounced around in this movie quite a bit. The movie is about a half hour too long. They could have left some of the scenes out of this one, like a gay flirtation with the villain, which you would never consider with the womanizing James Bond character. Another scene with Bond getting a clean shave? That was a bit mundane.
There is a great deal of action in the movie though and I have always been a fan of James Bond flicks. I liked this one and thought it was cool the way they tied “Skyfall” into the film, as a place of his youth, with a climactic ending as you would expect in a 007 film. There were quite a few parts that were unrealistic that may bug you, as they try to compete with the Jason Bourne and other similar films, like his surviving a trip down a waterfall, after being shot.
There were not enough hot women too, which you expect to see with James Bond films, but it was still very well done. I would rate it as a Don’t Miss It and Becky thought it was Worth The Trip.
