I recently watch the new James Bond movie and it was amazing. I have seen every James Bond movie and this one is by far the best and everyone I have asked agrees. I love the antagonist in the movie and as weird as it sounds I thought that he was pretty crazy but in an acceptable way. The villain's name is Silva and Javier Bardem deserves an Oscar for the great job that he does portraying Silva. While I watched the movie, I was constantly wishing and imagining that I was a British secret agent. This movie follows James Bond (Daniel Craig) who is shot on a mission and ever since his wounding, people are saying the he is too old to still be doing dangerous field missions. Bond refuses to hang his hat just yet and returns to MI6 when he finds out that M (Judi Dench) is being threatened. An ex- agent of MI6 seeks revenge on M for reasons only known by them. His name is Silva and he is a psychopath. We find out that M has allowed something to turn him this way later in the movie. Everything that Silva does or allows to happen is a part of a plan because he is just that much of a genius, but James Bond is determined to best him. Bond has to go through everything to get to Silva and save M and, as usual, there is a new love interest named Eve (Naomie Harris) who helps him. In order to save M, Bond has to come to terms with his childhood because his parents were killed; and in the final face off Bond leads him to the one place that no one would think - Skyfall, his childhood home. This movie deserves all of the stars in the sky, but since the highest is five; then I give this movie five out of five stars. I love how all of the James Bond movies have the same concept so that there are no shake ups, and the writers give just enough prediction, but not too much to make the movie predictable. Some of the scenes in this movie have sexual connotations and are violent, so this movie is not appropriate for small children. I recommend this movie for ages thirteen and up because of the mature content. Victoria Burns, age 14, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
The latest of the Bond movies delivers action and adventure just as we've been prepped to expect since the 1960s when Ian Flemings' books first hit the silver scene. The difference between the traditional Bond films and this one is that Bond is shown as a somewhat aging agent who many wish to retire, particularly after he is shot in the opening scene. M has another idea and approves his return to active duty. What I really enjoyed about this film is its introspective aspect. We see Bond returning to the home he grew up in and where his parents lost their lives. When the house blows up, his response is, "I never liked that house anyway." But, we meet the house's caretaker who knew Bond as a youngster and hear him talk about worthy of her talents. Daniel Craig's performance is spell-binding. Javier Bardem plays an artful smart and cunning villain. And, Bond's Aston Martin DB5 makes a brief reappearance. This film is filled with action starting with the opening scene and continuing throughout. It's thoroughly appealing for an adult audience and for teens as well.
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. Directed by Sam Mendes. Starrring Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Albert Finney.
