I gotta give it to the dweebs who wrote the Skyfall plot- splendid! If you've not been following the Bond movies, you won't miss a thing by jumping straight to this one. Also, if you are turned off by the cloak & dagger content of spy movies, this Bond instalment has the least of them all, the focus here is revenge. There are 2 deaths in this movie, very few Bond gadgets on show & a greying Bond battling degeneration because of his love for the profession. Do not dismiss the show because you are averse to all things James Bond, it's a good movie per se.
