Anyone who says that Skyfall makes any more sense than Prometheus, with its scaredy-cat scientist eager to caress a "beautiful" evil snake, is kidding themselves. IMHO.
Truer words probably haven't been spoken online this year. Two massive disappointments for me; PROMETHEUS just being a horribly missed opportunity, SKYFALL passing itself off as smart (much as CASINO ROYALE did, a movie in which the baddies store all their secret contact info on their cellphones, without which Bond wouldn't have gotten anywhere in the movie) but with horrid characterization and idiot plot turns.
Erm didn't Silva want to be captured, so he could be brought to London and kill M?

So one could argue that leaving details on a mobile phone was part of that plan to be captured.

But in general films do have plot holes.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
