No Time To Die Week: Skyfall (2012) – Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Hold the phone.  007 is back and this time he’s bloody near perfect.  Yes that’s right Skyfall is exactly as good as the hype suggest, a film that returns Bond to the classic figure we know and love whilst throwing in enough action, heartache and shootouts to be a damn good action to be a thriller in its own right.  From the Aston Martin, to the fight in a lizard pit (yes really!), this is Bond at the best he’s been for a long time as it calls back classic moments from decades of iconic movies. Skyfall is highly re-watchable, massively fun.  A must watch.  Just a shame about the bloody theme song.
