Watch Skyfall Online Free Full Movie : Then there’s Javier Bardem, one-upping even his flamboyant psychopath from “No Country for Old Men.”
The only thing banal about his villain Silva is his name. It would be a sin to say too much about this character — discover him for yourself — but Bardem’s outré performance is simply delicious. He’s a warped mama’s boy who fancies himself, whisper it, Bond’s mirror image. It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a Bond movie so much. By taking a good hard look at itself and going back to first principles, “Skyfall” pulls off something quite special. This is Bond resurrected, redeemed and reinvigorated, ready to face a new half-century.. In this 50th year of the James Bond series, with the dismal “Quantum of Solace” (2008) still in our minds, “Skyfall” triumphantly reinvents 007 in one of the best Bonds ever. This is a full-blooded, joyous, intelligent celebration of a beloved cultural icon, with Daniel Craig taking full possession of a role he earlier played well in “Casino Royale,” not so well in “Quantum” — although it may not have been entirely his fault. Or is it just that he’s growing on me? I don’t know what I expected. I don’t know what I expected in Bond No. 23, but certainly not an experience this invigorating. Mendes gambles big on a last act that cuts out all the gadgets and gizmos, brings everything down to bare bones and ties the action to Bond’s own history. He pulls it off, in part because this apparently immortal series desperately needed someone to take a risk, and because Mendes’ class really comes through in the performances. Judi Dench is probably incapable of being bad, but M is a real character this time, with emotions, as well as convictions, and she hits every note just so. Ben Whishaw is a breath of fresh air as a youthful Q, and Craig himself remains the first 007 who might conceivably take down Sean Connery in hand-to-hand combat. This is a movie of gleaming surfaces — veteran DP Roger Deakins turns a glass skyscraper at night into a funhouse hall of mirrors, and a floating Macau casino is like an oasis in the black sea. After all the globetrotting, “Skyfall” brings the action back home to Britain — and Deakins finds a different kind of beauty in the crags and lochs of Scotland. Just on a pictorial level, it’s enticing in a way few CGI spectaculars can match. (The credit sequence alone is among the most lustrous in the entire 007 canon.). The movie’s innovations begin in its first shots, which abandon the familiar stalking silhouettes in the iris lens, and hit the ground running. Bond and another agent are in Istanbul, chasing a man who has stolen a crucial hard drive, and after a chase through city streets (involving no less than three Fruit Cart Scenes), 007 is running on top of a train. We know from earlier films that Bond can operate almost anything, but “Skyfall” incredibly has him commandeer of a giant Caterpillar and continue the chase by crushing a flatcar filled with VW Beetles. Scripted by Bond specialists Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, this time with a significant assist from John Logan (“Hugo”; “The Aviator”), “Skyfall” cobbles together bits and pieces from many another thriller, sometimes more loosely than we might like, and draws in particular from “The Dark Knight” — but for my money Mendes gets the balance between light and dark more nearly right than Christopher Nolan managed in this year’s most overbearing blockbuster.
Watch Skyfall Online Free 2013: Returning to MI6 in its hour of greatest need, 007 can’t shoot straight, fails his physical and his psych test, too. But M (Judi Dench) knows he’s still the man for the job even if her latest government overseer (Ralph Fiennes) seems to think they’re both relics headed for the scrapyard.. It’s the kind of absurd stunt we expect in a Bond movie, but this one relies on something unexpected: a dead-serious M (Judi Dench), following the action from MI6 in London and making a fateful decision. After an enemy agent grabs Bond as a human shield, M’s other agent, Eve (Naomie Harris), has both men in her gun sights. The stakes are very high. “Take the shot!” M commands. Bond seems to die, although since this happens around the 20-minute mark, we’re not very surprised that he doesn’t. Mendes is out to make more than just another Bond film, that much is clear. “Skyfall” features all the usual elements — the chases, the girls, the arch villain — but recalibrated with intelligence and a less smug, more searching sensibility. You might even detect a hint of Lester Burnham, the disenchanted, depressed 50-something played by Kevin Spacey in Mendes’ “American Beauty,” in the disaffected and mildly disabled Bond played by Daniel Craig this time out. M begins to compose the obituary of Commander James Bond, and she might as well also be writing her own. Time has passed her by, she’s older, and her new boss, Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), convenes a public (!) hearing requiring her to defend her tenure. It’s time for a generation to be put out to pasture. Even Q and, as it turns out, Miss Moneypenny are practically kids. M is not quite ready to retire, and “Skyfall” at last provides a role worthy of Judi Dench, one of the best actors of her generation. She is all but the co-star of the film, with a lot of screen time, poignant dialogue, and a character who is far more complex and sympathetic than we expect in this series. The film is guided by a considerable director (Sam Mendes), written by the heavyweights Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan, and delivers not only a terrific Bond but a terrific movie, period. If you haven’t seen a 007 for years, this is the time to jump back in.
Watch Skyfall Online Free 2013 Full Movie : This is the seventh time Judi Dench has played the enigmatic spy-chief M. But it is only in this storming new Bond movie that her M has really been all that she could be. Under the stylish direction of Sam Mendes, Dench’s M is quite simply the Bond girl to end all Bond girls. Watching this, I thought: of course. How could I have missed it? The real tension isn’t with Moneypenny, but with the boss herself. Now M is an imperious, subtly oedipal intelligence-matriarch with the double-O boys under her thumb. She’s treating them mean. She’s keeping them keen. And she is rewarded with passionate loyalty, varying with smouldering resentment. It’s a combination with its own unspoken eroticism, and it has also created the conditions for one of the most memorable Bond villains in recent times. M demands more and more from her agents, with less and less concern for their safety. At one stage, 007 actually appears in M’s apartment, late at night, after a difficult stretch in the field. Following a curt exchange, weary and somewhat hurt, Bond says he will find a hotel. “Well, you’re not staying here,” is M’s superbly timed and exquisitely hurtful reply.. There’s a theory that you can grade the Bonds on the quality of their villains. In “Skyfall,” this is a cerebral megalomaniac named Silva, played by Javier Bardem, whose unpronounceable Anton Chigurh in “No Country for Old Men” approached the high-water mark of Hannibal Lecter. Here he plays a bleached blond computer whiz who stole the drive containing the guarded identities of every MI6 agent. Are we supposed to think of Julian Assange? This is a brand-new Bond with love and respect for the old Bond. This is dramatized during Bond’s visit to the weathered Scottish mansion inhabited by Kincade (Albert Finney), which has secrets to divulge and continues the movie’s rewriting of the character’s back story. During the early Bonds, did we ever even ask ourselves about 007’s origins in life? “Skyfall” even produces a moment designed to inspire love in Bond fans: a reappearance of the Aston Martin DB5 from “Goldfinger,” which remains in good operating condition. Just as Christopher Nolan gave rebirth to the Batman movies in “The Dark Knight,” here is James Bond lifted up, dusted off, set back on his feet and ready for another 50 years. And am I completely misguided when I expect to see Miss Moneypenny become a Bond girl in the next film?
