Film Review: Skyfall

Last November, I saw Skyfall, which the lovely Judi Dench co-starred and reprise her M role (from the Bond films) with Daniel Craig. I posted my full Film Review: Skyfall in my other blog, In The Mood For Movies, where I post my general movie reviews (of the movies I've seen in theaters).

Speaking of Skyfall...'Skyfall' reaches $1 billion worldwide (via Box Office Mojo)

Here's my review where I mentioned Judi Dench as M, James Bond's boss in Skyfall...

Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her, bringing MI6 under attack.  
I saw Skyfall last month and I loved it! The opening credits (which referenced past Bond films/entries), was like a music video with Adele's stellar theme song, the similar title track to this movie's title. The song's catchy too especially in the part when she sings, "Let the skyfall, when it crumbles. We will stand tall and face it all together...Let the skyfall, we will stand tall...at skyfall..." It was creative and stylized. Loved it! Daniel Craig has never looked better and was simply brilliant as Bond, James Bond "reporting for duty," as he reprise his iconic Bond/007 role (for the third time) in this standalone version of a James Bond film. Loved Bond's cavalier attitude, his being down-and-dirty assassin on the mission, and how he was a very affectionate lover of the ladies.

Judy Dench
was simply brilliant and amazing (as she has always been...when has she ever not, right?) as M, Bond's boss at MI6 and had more to do in the story, as she was at the center of it. She was funny with her one-liners here. Her M character was fearless and blunt in saying, "take the bloody shot!" and "Where the hell have you been?" (in which Bond responded, "Enjoying death. 007 reporting for duty.") LOL! Loved her scenes with Daniel Craig as Bond especially when he entered the interrogation room to take his psychological test. The psychologist was like, "I'm going to say a word, and I want you to say the first word that comes into your head." and when it came down to the part when the psychologist said, "M," Bond said, "B*ch." Hahaha! M and Bond had some funny one-liners, very good dialogue, great banter, and their last scene together was...let's just say surprisingly dramatic and emotional (wont' spoil what happen here)...!
