SKYFALL Blu-Ray Review

The latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall, was one of the best the series has ever produced. After failing a mission, Bond (Daniel Craig) returns determined to get back to his old self. And he needs it, as a puzzling figure name Silva (Javier Bardem) appears dead set on destroying M (Judi Dench), and everything she has built. The film is a fascinating story of two men who both fight with their inner demons, causing the audience to both feel for and resent both men at various times throughout the movie.  Starting today, you can own the Skyfall Blu-Ray, and enjoy it from the comfort of your own home!

The action is what you would expect in a Bond movie. The opening of the film takes place on a train, with jumps from car to car and fist fights on the rough of the train. It doesnt’ slow down there, as Bond and his team try to stop Silva from enacting psychological warfare on M and the rest of London in the process.

The main feature on the blu-ray is Shooting Bond, which provides an in-depth look into the making of the film .This includes behind the scenes footage of the making of the film, as well as interviews with the cast and crew themselves. One of my favorite parts of the feature was the revamping of Q and the behind the scenes crew. After the character took a couple movies off, Q is back, and is now played by Ben Whishaw, who brings a younger feel to the character.

They also spend a good amount of time on the character of Silva, which I loved considering how great Bardem played the character.  The feature talks more about the person that Silva is, and draws on the fuel of revenge that is burning inside of him. For any big 007 fans, this special feature is a fantastic addition to the film.

Synopsis

In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past returns to haunt her. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows – aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) – following a trail to the mysterious Silva, whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.
