*minor spoilers ahead*
“Shaken, not stirred” — That’s how Skyfall, the 23rd Bond film, felt like to me. The essentials are the same, yet it feels like  a whole new drink altogether, as thoroughly refreshing, if not better, than the ones before. The flavor is uneven in an exciting kind of way.
Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition) has crafted one of the most uniquely beautiful Bond movies of all. Skyfall takes the franchise to uncharted realms thematically, even visually, but at the same time, guides it home, to where it all began, setting up an exciting future to the greatest film franchise ever. Daniel Craig’s hard-edged, anti-Bond Bond, which many thought was undone by Marc Forster’s meandering Quantum of Solace, has the persona on firm footing this time around.
