'Skyfall' review: Latest Bond film is captivating, completely satisfying
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Daniel Craig again embraces the role of secret agent 007.
In "Skyfall," he's at his Bond best. You see the brazenness and the bravery he portrays so well, but you also see a little vulnerability.
In this adventure, James Bond is after a former operative out for revenge against MI6 and his superior, M.
Director Sam Mendes brings more depth of character into Bond and the supporting players. Judi Dench is, as always, a pleasure to watch as M, and Javier Bardem is diabolically delightful as the film's villain.
"Skyfall" also brings new actors into the franchise, including Ralph Fiennes as Gareth Mallory, Ben Whishaw as gadget master Q, and Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe as Bond girls. You'll also see Albert Finney in a small role.
The action is phenomenal to watch unfold on screen, it's just done so well. It's a captivating piece of cinema from start to finish.
The movie did throw one unexpected, emotional surprise at me, but to say anymore might give it away.
It's a good story, deeper than I had expected, and completely satisfying.
