Skyfall

Rated PG-13 143 minutes 2012

Grand visuals plus Javier Bardem’s outrageously fruity villain put this 50th-anniversary James Bond spy adventure over the top and into the “ripping yarn” zone. The situation: Bond (haggard Daniel Craig) returns after a worse-than-usual on-the-job injury and finds that his boss M (Judi Dench), government security chief Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), and the other spooks feel he’s over the hill. So he immediately goes to Shanghai and Scotland on the trail of bad guy Silva (Bardem), an ex-MI6 agent with a grudge. Director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road) catches the baroque-Bond mood adroitly, even if the story and dialogue – by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan – aren’t quite up to 2012 international skullduggery standards. Really, all you need to keep this franchise breathing is a believable Bond, a memorable villain, and a glib Q (Ben Whishaw). Also with Naomie Harris as Bond’s right-hand woman, Bérénice Marlohe as a honey trap, and Albert Finney as Kincade, the old Scots retainer of the Bond family seat. (143 min.)
