Quentin Tarantino Criticizes Daniel Craig's Skyfall for One Reason

Quentin Tarantino Criticizes Daniel Craig’s Skyfall for One Reason

"Skyfall" is consistently ranked as one of the best "James Bond" films of all time, while its follow-up, "Spectre," is often seen as average. Sam Mendes’ second venture into the world of Bond received mixed-to-positive reviews, with many critics finding it to be an uneventful rehash that emphasized the melancholy and moodiness of its predecessor without offering anything new. It holds a 63% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a notable drop from "Skyfall’s" 92% score on the same review aggregator.

Surprisingly, Quentin Tarantino actually prefers "Spectre." During an appearance on the "ReelBlend" podcast, Tarantino expressed his disinterest in "Skyfall" while commending its 2015 follow-up. "I thought ‘Skyfall’ was like, ‘This whole f**king movie’s ending at a shootout in a f*ing cabin? This is a ‘James Bond’ movie?" he said, explaining why he felt the 2012 film’s finale was underwhelming. "That’s not James fking Bond! From the opening action sequence in ‘Spectre’ on, it was like, ‘Now this is a James Bond movie.’"

Tarantino is right in one regard: the opening sequence during the Day of the Dead festival was action-packed. However, many fans and critics believe that the 2015 film lost its momentum after that initial scene. What’s particularly interesting is how Tarantino’s comments reflect his complicated relationship with the 007 films overall. He wasn’t impressed with the first two "James Bond" films and only began to appreciate the franchise with "Goldfinger."
