Skyfall
Skyfall (2012)
10 years ago via Flixster
½

Skyfall is all about transition. A new M, a new Q, older James Bond, new age gadget (yes only one), new Moneypenny and so on. The villain is less intimidating and brilliant Javier Bardem of 'No Country for Old Men' is wasted in the role. This villain, Silva, does not have any plans to take over the world. Instead, he has a modest ambition to kill M. Skyfall is not like regular Bond movies in so many ways. But why we go to Bond films? To watch Bond-style action (with a dose of raw power of Daniel Craig as seen in Casino Royale and Quntum of Solace). If that's what you want, you will be disappointed.

The Dictator

Sacha Cohen has overdone it. No comparison to Borat. The Dictator is a boring version of (equally boring) 'Don't Mess with Yohan'.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

½

Frankly, the movie was a disappointment. Intrigue should not necessarily mean silence. When the silence is leading it is meaningful and thrilling. In this movie the silence is - well, silent. For first 10 minutes of the movie, barring a few minutes in the beginning, Gary Oldman keeps on walking! You never know why this test of patience of the viewer.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
10 years ago via Flixster

Name's Dumb. James Dumb: The raw intrigue which was the strength of original Mission Impossible franchise is to be seen nowhere in this movie. But yes, there is world tour (Kremlin, Dubai, Mumbai...) and there are gadgets. And there are characters whose eyes lit up when they hear that they are going to Mumbai! And, yes one more thing - Jeremy Renner is wasted completely in the movie. His character keeps on oscillating between a comic sidekick to a suave analyst who can engage in hand-to-hand combat. Time to bury this Ghost.

4 stars for Natalie Portman's performance. Extraordinary! She is going to win the Oscar this year. Not so sure about the movie, though.
