(The Huffington Post)
“James Bond is back with “Skyfall,” and the earlier reviews are as strong as one of 007′s signature martinis. ‘Dramatically gripping while still brandishing a droll undercurrent of humor, this beautifully made film will certainly be embraced as one of the best Bonds by loyal fans worldwide and leaves you wanting the next one to turn up sooner than four years from now’.”

(The Guardian)
“Though not a man averse to material pleasures, Bond himself might balk at the amount of promotional tie-ins being attached to his name this time around. The new film raises the bar for onscreen product placement, from 007′s Tom Ford-tailored suits to Q’s Sony Vaio hardware, as well as offscreen alliances ranging from Coke Zero to perfume retailers.”

“Makers of the new James Bond movie Skyfall have striven to combine the old-school values that made 007 such a success over the last 50 years with enough modern mores to keep the silver screen’s favourite super spy relevant in a post-Cold War world.”

(The Guardian)
“After Adele’s Bond theme failed to top the charts, we wonder if all Bond themes are commercially cursed. There were high hopes for Adele’s theme song to the new James Bond film, Skyfall – not least the expectation that this would be the first 007 signature track to top the UK charts. It’s not as if a number one chart position has been a problem for the multi-award winning Adele, after all.”

“Swarovski take us behind the scenes on the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, to see just what goes in to creating a Bond girl-worthy dress. No Bond film is complete without a glamorous Bond girl dressed in the most glamorous of eveningwear – and the latest installment quite possibly features the best yet.”
