A skyrocketing return-to-form of Casino Royale after the disastrous QOS, Skyfall is a masterwork of cyberpunk aesthetics, diverse luxury backgrounds, human-scale, melancholic loss/mortality, psychotic Bardem villainy, & perhaps the best theme of canon by Adele. 9.2/10.
Plot Synopsis: When James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) latest assignment goes terribly wrong, it leads to a calamitous turn of events: Undercover agents around the world are exposed, and MI6 is attacked, forcing M (Judi Dench) to relocate the agency. With MI6 now compromised inside and out, M turns to the one man she can trust: Bond. Aided only by a field agent (Naomie Harris), Bond takes to the shadows and follows a trail to Silva (Javier Bardem), a man from M’s past who wants to settle an old score.
