Bond at its Best...

As I settled in my seat last night for a sold out viewing of Skyfall, my wait was finally over for my glimpse of 007. In its 50th year this was Bond's 23rd outing, and judging from the atmosphere in the cinema I wasn't the only one excited!....
In true Bond style the movie opened with one of the most actioned packed, stunningly orchestrated chase scenes that I have seen, Bond was off with a bang!... flowing into melancholic sounds of Adele's theme song it seemed that this Bond was going to live up to all the hype and expectation that had been set. As with all Bonds the theme song's final jigsaw puzzled slotted into place and the true essence of what the song was about suddenly all made sense.
For the next 2 hours I was swept away into this fabulous world of glamour and espionage.
There are no outrageous gadgets or gizmo's, every character enhances the story line, the new characters add to the complex layers of Bond.
The re-introduction of Q is fabulous, played by Ben Wishaw - the IT geek that everyone has worked with at sometime in their life.
Mallory played by Ralph Fiennes is a character that grows on you as you move through the movie. The "badie" played by Javier Bardem will have you squirming in your seat, chillingly creepy in a subtle way, its Julian Assange meets Hannibal Lector on a good day.
Judi Dench as M gives Daniel Craig a run for his money in the magnificent stakes, showcasing her acting pedigree to its finest, from ball breaking to heartbreaking in 2 hours

For the next 2 hours I was swept away into this fabulous world of glamour and espionage. This truly is the Best Bond that has been made. Daniel Craig is simply magnificent, bringing a Bond never seen before, humanistic, sometimes a little jaded, but so believable. Styled by Tom Ford this movie is uber glamorous, Bond has never looked so stylish and just oozes sex, appealing to the females in the audience... men will want to be him, and women will just want him!
This film is visually stunning, from the rooftops of Istanbul to the skyscrapers of Shanghai, the cinematography should be applauded and awarded. The Scottish highlands and the London skyline have never looked so evocative and breathtaking.  This alone is why this film should be seen on a big screen, it is fantastic.
Skyfall elevates itself into my top 3 films ever .... Bond is back and better than ever before...
