Aside from Whishaw’s fun mannerisms and the screenplay’s nice quips – something I think the character has (and still could) lived on alone – what really aides is a break of sorts from the work of the late, great Desmond Llewelyn. This Q is younger, a bit more dry in his interactions, and feels like a greater part of the action than, as was customary, the man who shows up for one scene to give us a good chuckle and the chance to ooh or aah at some impossible device. (Which is not say said good chuckles are even absent. The humor is back with Skyfall, if just a bit dialed down from the days of Roger Moore.) But, oh, Javier Bardem. Watch Skyfall online free felt as though an hour (give or take) of Skyfall passes before we’re even introduced to Silva, a man we only hear the worst things about and whose actions we get a snatch of here or there. His introduction alone is an all-timer for Bond.

Not just an impressive act of staging, framing, and acting on its own; also, no question, the single best entry for any villain this franchise has yet to conceive. Where he takes it from there is funny in a Joker-ish sort of way – even, at times, charming in a manner not unlike Hannibal Lecter – but all Bond by the time his final scenes make their way across the red- and orange-lit frame. Very likely the greatest performance to be found in any 007 picture. By the time Monty Norman’s theme blares out of theater speakers, watch Skyfall online has thrived on this feeling of collaboration betwixt those in front of and behind the camera, a certain – perhaps hard-to-sufficiently-pin-down-in-words – sensation that everyone strived to make a film capable of both standing on its own and being worthy of a massive canon. The fact that they not only succeeded, but did so in such a confident, out-of-the-ballpark fashion is icing on a perfectly satisfying slice of espionage cake. Thrilling, relevant, emotional, and brimming with unforgettable moments of visual grandeur, Skyfall is among both the best of Bond and 2012’s cinematic offerings.
