Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: This is the one 007 film where the Bond girls, especially Severine, get very little focus or screentime. Rather, the central female character of the story is M and her relationship with James Bond is explored more deeply.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Dramatic as the scene may have been, it's safe to say that no one thought Bond was going to die after getting shot in the opening sequence. However, [[spoiler:M's death,]] if it's not spoiled for you, is a bit of a gut punch.

* SceneryPorn: As is often the case in films with cinematography by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Deakins Roger Deakins]]. [[WebVideo/HonestTrailers Honest Trailers]] lampshades the "absurdly long landscape shots".

'''''Skyfall''''', the 23rd film in the Film/JamesBond franchise, also marks the 50th anniversary of the film series and the third film to star Creator/DanielCraig as Bond. After languishing for years in DevelopmentHell following the financial problems of distributor MGM, the Creator/SamMendes-directed film finally saw release in 2012.

* RedHerring: [[spoiler:Mallory is a shady, stuck-up ex-soldier, played by the guy who also played [[Film/HarryPotter Voldemort]], [[SchindlersList Amon Goeth]] and [[Film/RedDragon Francis Dolarhyde]], who tries to get M to resign in his first appearance, scorns Bond in his second, and is present at a would-be crime scene in his third. Not a great start for ''the future M''!]]

** Finally, he has [[spoiler:Bond's CoolCar]] blown up, even though at this point it posed no threat.

* HollywoodHealing: Averted. Bond's shoulder wound from the opening sequence ''dramatically'' affects his performance, even after he's given several months to recuperate. Granted, "recuperation" consisted of getting wasted and laying women in the middle of nowhere. Also, Mallory takes a bullet to the shoulder from Silva during the shootout in the boardroom, and wears a sling for the remainder of the movie.
