Alternative Magazine Online: "Skyfall is a stand-alone Bond film that fondly remembers the series’ 50 year history without remaining stuck in the past. Daniel Craig is in many ways a firm contender for the best actor to have ever played 007, fully embodying Ian Fleming’s troubled spy in a modern age and for a modern audience. Sam Mendes has helmed a beautifully understated outing for the world’s most famous secret agent that marries breathtaking action and exotic locations with sincere depth and characterisation. One of the best films of 2012, it could also be argued – and no doubt it will be for some time – that this is the best James Bond film ever made. This is 007 reborn, and he’s never felt more alive."
