 Storyline

Skyfall opens with an electrifying chase scene in which James Bond (Daniel Craig) is shown to be dead. Cyber-terrorists have stolen a hard drive containing a complete list of secret agents that they threaten to leak on internet. This is similar to the recent and real life incident, relating to Wikileaks and the US army.

Back in London, HQ of the British secret service MI6 on the banks of the river Thames has been destroyed in a terrorist bomb attack. M (Judi Dench) is who is the head of MI6, is pressured to quit. She then summons Bond, who mysteriously reappears. M orders Bond to track the terrorists, before they leak the names online and counter them. The hunt for the bad guys leads 007 from the bazaars of Istanbul to the casinos of Shanghai to an abandoned island off the Chinese coast where the villain Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem) appears to be caught.

What happens next ? Will the capture of Silva resolve the crisis ?
Or is there a dark secret that M is trying to hide?

For more details, do watch the movie in a theater.
If possible IMAX - to enjoy the brilliant action sequences, especially the opening chase.

Overall, Skyfall is a wonderful comeback for Daniel Craig, after the flop of Quantum of Solace.
