A must-see!

Skyfall is one of the best action films in recent years. Released in 2012, it is a thrilling James Bond adventure where the past plays an important role.

The plot involves a genius computer hacker (Javier Bardem) who is an ex-spy. He wants to take revenge on the organisation he worked for and James Bond (Daniel Craig) prevents that from happening. There are a lot of exciting action scenes while 007 pursues him around the world. The film is set in different locations, which gives it a very international atmosphere. The soundtrack is impressive, including the theme song “Skyfall” by Adele, and the acting is also of a very high standard.

I highly recommend this film, especially if you are keen on action films. I am sure you will not regret watching it!
