Skyfall ★★★★

A terrific opening sequence sets the scene for a decent Bond outing.

Watching this, I was struck by how it is clearly the best shot Bond film. When I checked who the cinematographer was afterwards it was absolutely no surprise at all to see it was Roger Deakins, and he and director San Mendes have done an excellent job in making this look fantastic.

Javier Bardem is the best Bond villain for some time, and turns in a memorable, if a little bit OTT, performance as Silva.

The final act goes a little bit off the rails but all in all an enjoyable entry into the series.
