A Few Thoughts on Skyfall

The latest James Bond movie has been out for over a month and making lots of money.  I finally found the time to go an watch it and wanted to give a few thoughts on it. 

While it is a good movie I am not sure it is as great as everyone else seems to think it is. 
First it is too long for a Bond movie.  I know they were trying to make this more of a grounded realistic Bond movie with a plot but at 2 hours 20 minutes it was a bit long. 
Second they made Javier Bardem’s villain and Judi Dench’s M well rounded characters  but Bond felt kind of flat.  I was never sure who or what he actually cared about. 
Third for trying to make it more realistic Bond seemed a bit too indestructible.    

Guess what I am saying there are certain expectations you have when you see a Bond movie and that is that there will be lots of action and cool gadgets.  The action was ok and there were no cool gadgets.  Maybe I would have liked this movie better if it wasn’t a Bond movie. 

Overall 3 out of 5 stars.  Good but not great.
