Skyfall just might have the best cinematography of any action film EVER. Roger Deakins has been framing shots and lighting/setting them for years and this is his masterpiece. Every fight sequences, every chase, and especially some of the final scenes... well, they are so beautiful I could cry, seriously.

The film itself is really good, one of the most enjoyable, intelligent Bond films ever, even if it kind of deconstructs the very idea of a Bond movie as it goes. Javier Bardem just chews the scenery and Judi Dench is brilliant as always as M. Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney put in fine work in smaller roles, and Daniel Craig is just fully embodying the role now.

8.5/10

You have claimed the position as Timmers girl? He's married, his wife might not like that.

I saw it last night. Cinematography was indeed amazing. I especially liked the Shanghai fight with Patrice. I really liked the first half of the movieespecially, but I feel they could have done more with Silva.
Shanghai/Macau were especially great, but when the movie returns to London it sort of becomes a bit silly at times. Blowing up MI6, getting that list, trying to discredit M that much and the final stage of the plan was walking in with 3 dudes during a hearing and shooting her? Also think they could have done more with Bond's morality and possible issues with MI6/M, like him starting to become closer with Silva or almost joining him, w/e. Felt like they laid some groundwork for that at the beginning but then they forgot abou it.
That being said thoug, still much better than QoS but I liked it less than Casino Royale, I think.
