Skyfall ★★★★

Everything good in this film happens in the third act. Once Bond reveals that he salted away the classic Aston-Martin from Casino Royale, this film achieves a new height and it never goes down from then on. So what we remember is Bond & M’s last stand at his ancestral Scottish estate of Skyfall (complete with Deakin’s cinematography), and not the pathetic and downright degrading handling of all the other female characters that makes this the most misogynistic of the Craig-era Bond films.
