SKYFALL is very entertaining indeed, with some
instant classic scenes (such as the one pictured above), but I need to absorb it and see it again; I
feel it's too soon to place it above this or that. Also, after 50 years
of mystery and present tense heroism, I don't take a ready shine to
suddenly being told more about Bond's past, especially by a franchise newcomer
like Sam Mendes, and particularly when it makes him seem less like Bond
and more like a Bruce Wayne raised in the WOMAN IN BLACK house. But the
film is at least right about this: the man who drove that Aston Martin
was a Scot.
