Skyfall ★★★★½

“We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
- Lord Tennyson, Ulysses

A beaten Bond broken beyond his prime and badassery is the best touch to humanise the blue-eyed wonder that is Craig’s 007.

If Casino Royale did to Bond what Batman Begins did to Batman, then Skyfall is The Dark Knight of Bond films.
The best.
