I was impressed by the James Bond reboot with Casino Royale in 2006 introducing Daniel Craig as Bond, less so by the follow up Quantum of Solace in 2008, which I can barely remember. However, Skyfall (2012) is more like the former than the later. This one, directed by Sam Mendes, opens with a great chase scene on motorcycles on the top of the Great bazaar in Istanbul followed by an inspired credit sequence. The locations were all fabulous as Bond traverses from Shanghai to Macao and back to London, before heading to Scotland and his family's old "Skyfall" estate for the climax with bad guy Javier Bardem. It also has appearances from all the Bond familiars: M, Q, and Miss Moneypenny. There is a slight meta-aspect of the film that winks at the Bond conventions and traditions. It was a very entertaining addition.
