Skyfall ★★★★

The franchise's 50th anniversary presents us a more intimate Bond, who after being seriously injured, must return to protect M from a vengeful cyber terrorist, zestily played by Javier Bardem. Sam Mendes was an unusual choice to direct this film, as he has no action credentials, but he pulls off exciting setpieces effortlessly, while injecting loads of human drama into the film. Bond's continued relevance seems assured.
