Skyfall Review - IGN


M says this to Bond at the beginning of Skyfall. While she’s referring to Bond’s vast experience, hinting that he might be past his best, it’s also referring to the Bond movies in general. We’re all familiar with the rules by now. We’ve played the ‘game’ so many times – 22, to be precise. And as Bond celebrates his fiftieth year on the big screen, and we reacquaint ourselves with those iconic elements – the villains, the girls, the gadgets – Skyfall could have easily felt contrived. But Skyfall is a master of its own game, and is smart enough to adapt those rules, creating a film that respects but transcends its rich heritage. (Cinema, Skyfall) 9/10

Quantum of Solace had the most forgettable villain in a Bond movie as of late. If you can't remember the villain in a Bond movie, then it fails.

I thought it was that guy that was found in the desert with his head blow off? But I can't remember his name off hand.
