'Skyfall' Generates Rave Reviews, Unleashes New Action-Packed Clip
Moviegoers in the U.S. still have to wait for a couple of weeks before watching "Skyfall", but their long wait seemingly won't end up with disappointment since the film is already granted overwhelmingly positive reviews from various critics in Europe. The Sam Mendes-directed movie is even dubbed the best James Bond pic so far by some reviewers.
Digital Spy wrote, "Shake your martinis, folks. We've seen the new James Bond movie and it's a corker!" while British GQ tweeted similar praise, "Just seen #skyfall. Daniel Craig is magnificent - you will not be disappointed. Roll on another 50 years of @007."
Meanwhile, Time Out Film gushed, " #Skyfall. Bold. Good-looking. Craig is in his element. Mendes atones for sins of Quantum with gorgeous photography, story and room to think." Nick Duncalf wrote, "The nice people @SonyPicturesUK wouldn't want me to give away much about #Skyfall. They won't mind me saying it's the best Bond in 40 years."
More positive review came from Daily Mail, which stated, "Skyfall was a fantastic combination of 007 meets Bourne meets Spooks meets Home Alone." The tabloid added, "Bond is back and he's more dangerous than ever but so is M who is the most ruthless character in Skyfall."
The Times praised the film as "a great British bulldog of a movie." It said, "From the moment the orchestral sound of Adele belts out, sending a nostalgic shiver down the audience's collective spine, we know this will be a triumphant return to classic Bond. Sam Mendes, the director, deftly balances fanboy worship of 007 tradition with sophisticated film-making, and (apart from early Connery), nobody does it better than Daniel Craig."
Almost at the same time the reviews were published, "Skyfall" debuted a brand new clip for those who haven't seen the movie. Titled "Take the Shot", the action-packed snippet highlights a very intense scene where Eve is forced by M to "take a bloody shot" toward Bond, who is fighting a baddie atop a moving train.
"Skyfall" is slated for a November 9 release in the United States.
