Skyfall short review.

I saw Skyfall over the weekend; surprisingly, though it was an engaging film, and I would certainly say it's a good action film, I didn't really like it. I love Bond films; I go into them to watch Bond thwart nuclear countdowns and save the world and pull out cool gadgets and be all kinds of smooth. And to see the latest Bond Girl and how she measures up. A Bond film where he's lost his mojo and where M has as much screentime as Bond does? It's interesting, but it's not what I go to see. I won't say more than that outside of a cut; discussion invited in the comments.

I love Daniel Craig's stoic Bond, and Judi Dench is always brilliant, but I walked out of Skyfall with a craving to watch Moonraker again. Sigh.
