Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion
What Craig's movies has lacking was pretty much any connection whatsoever to the Bond franchise and tropes. This one had them which made it fun. Q, gadgets, quips, the gun-site (though this time around used as the outro rather than intro) injecting the theme into scenes. That made this movie spades better than the other Craig films.
The gun-site was in the other two movies, in Casino Royale it was actually incorporated into the scene where he beat the guy up in the bathroom just before the credits began. In Quantum of Solace it was right at the end just like Skyfall. But yes, I agree, this felt more Bond like than than those two. Especially Quantum of Solace which simply did not feel like a Bond movie at all.
