Skyfall Blu-Ray Collider Review

Collider:
We would have been happy with Casino Royale; we really, really would. Daniel Craig’s debut as James Bond was such a revelation – such an infusion of modern cool into 007’s timeless sensibilities – that he could have spent the remainder of his tenure doodling on a napkin and we still would have deemed him a success. So we accepted the flawed nature of Quantum of Solace without raising much fuss; enjoying its eccentricities and letting its middling status slide with the assumption that Craig’s ride would be more of the same. Little did we know that the best was yet to come: the inestimable Skyfall, which not only affirmed the character’s relevance for the 21st Century, but set a new standard for all future entries in the series. Best Bond ever? Goldfinger may edge it by the thinnest of margins, but even then, I’m inclined to give it a little space on the podium. Hit the jump for the review. (Blu-ray, DVD, Skyfall) -

I loved the film but have mixed feelings about having a julian assange copy as the villain
