This one was surely a kick in the teeth for the super spy persona created by the previous 007s like Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan what with Daniel Craig's sullen addict look. Craig fails to sweep the ladies off their feet with his smooth charm and dapper style leaving an obvious ache for the butterfly-in-your-stomach syndrome in this installment of the Bond franchise.
Syfall lets you down with an absolute lack of gizmos, gorgeous girls and a groovy storyline not to mention, leaves you craving for a vicious villain. Though Javier Bardem tries his best to put up a convincing act as Silva what with stories of how hydrogen cyanide can melt your face off (wherever did that come from?), there are two things that are bound to leave the audience incessantly puzzled.
Firstly, his sexuality is up for grabs because it does become a tad too confusing when he makes irrefutable sexual advances towards Bond (literally!) only to reveal a turbulent romantic history with our beloved M. Secondly, for the larger than life Bond movies, it comes as an absolute shocker when the invincible meanie wreaks havoc throughout the movie only to be killed by Bond by a single stab of the knife (SPOILER ALERT!).
The only saving grace is the few minutes of screen presence by Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) as the classy new M (Hail Potterheads!) and Adele's compelling opening score.
All in all, fans are left cheated and duped after a four year wait only to be overwhelmed by an utter disaster!
P.S. Avoid Skyfall unless you have extra cash pinching your pockets! Aapki seva mein janhit mein jaari. :P
