Skyfall | Review

As someone who has never seen a Bond movie before, I have to admit that it piqued my interest while making me wanna watch the other ones.

Filled with tension, drama, and special effects, it kept me on the edge of my seat. Furthermore, the movie qualifies as one of the best 007 movies to date, ranking among the top 30 greatest action movies of all time according to

Skyfall, a James Bond movie directed by Sa Mendes, was released in 2012 and is based on the Bond character by Ian Fleming. Sam Mendes was born in 1065 in England and is a movie and theatre director.


Moreover, Sam Mendes possesses some trademarks which have had a great impact on this Bond movie. According to IMDb

he often uses music scores from Thomas Newman, he usually works with Daniel Craig, and rain frequently marks the event of a death, which, for instance, can be seen just 12 minutes into the movie, in a scene with M, when Bond “dies”.

The usage of metaphors and symbols in the movie is immaculate and makes you think twice before jumping to conclusions.

Sir Mendes certainly has a sense of preserving the audience’s focus and questioning, which are some essential traits in moviemaking.

Skyfall kicks off in classic Bond fashion, with 007 already hunting after a mysterious bad guy who stole a top-secret list of all the undercover MI6 agents’ names.

In an intense action scene, Bond has to chase after him on an old, rusty cruiser. This reveals some of the movie’s main themes, as the contrast between young and old.

Bond’s partner, Moneypenny, accidentally shoots him in the line of duty at M’s command, and the villain escapes.
