Film Brief: Skyfall

About two-thirds through Skyfall, I could not help but to think of another Daniel Craig thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  I was reminded of how refreshing the Stieg Larsson books were, and that English language first movie.  Full of international intrigue — and the intriguing variety nonetheless.  Skyfall by comparison was overall quite dull and not helped terribly by Javier Bardem playing an exceptionally boring villain when you have in the back of your mind his fascinating introduction to the wide American audience, No Country for Old Men.

Skyfall was an unoriginal yawner punctuated with a few exciting sequences.  Unfortunately the best one was the intro titles featuring the Adele song.  4/10.
