If you watch Skyfall without expectations, it is a decent spy drama.Here, James Bond is old, wise and mature. He thinks intelligently, acts rationally and does not use gadgets. Do you want to see that kind of Bond? Perhaps, Sam Mendes tried to portray Bond in a more realistic light. But then, realistic espionage is actually boring.
