” Skyfall ” is the story of a resurrection accidentally hit a young colleague MI6 mission considered dead by his superiors , James Bond is the soft flowing somewhere on an island paradise where he enjoys all vices, in the shadow of his own demise. Identifies his return to Phoenix – but a crippled phoenix and a little too focused on alcohol, unable to hold his weapon without trembling like an old man .
But the shooting of this twenty-third James Bond also marks the resurrection of a studio , MGM has had to stop production of the film for several months in 2010 because of abysmal debt. The financial mess that up by being worthy of a spy in the Ian Fleming scenario, avoid too linger , we simply retain that Bond indicates both the return of the franchise and rescue the famous Hollywood firm. The timing could not be more symbolic : 2012 is the very year of the fiftieth anniversary of the release of ” James Bond against Dr. No ,” in which Sean Connery donned the first suit the charismatic British spy .
At the novelty , it should be noted that the studio told for the first time in its history , the reins of installment of the saga to Oscar-winning director – Sam Mendes who won the famous statuette for ” American Beauty ” in 2000.
In addition to being visually very successful, ” Skyfall ” offers a perfect blend of Bond today and yesterday that he was still among the homage to classic and big commercial machine for all audiences. The screenplay by Neal Purvis , Robert Wade and John Logan happily tramples conventions and codes for better, actually revive them..
If it were not for the ambiguous character of the villain , the Bond number twenty-three reach the last steps on the stairway of perfection. This sequence is funny indeed . However, it confuses nuances of character with big psychological hooves, and Silva will never be able to completely get rid of the doubt instilled in the viewer’s mind .
We catch up with the undeniable aesthetic elegance that pervades this adventure to both external and internal , into the disturbing ” orangéité ” transform the Scottish moors , for a moment, in setting the end of the world before a conclusion oscillates between seriousness and humor.
