Skyfall 2012 - The new James Bond 007 movie

James Bond my sexy beloved 007 British Secret Agent is back in “Skyfall”. And who wouldn’t love this character? He’s hot with all the ladies and always has a shaken-not-stirred martini. Known for his silver Aston Martin and up to date with all the newest gadgets. The ever so cool new James Bond movie comes across fit, smooth and polished even at 50 years old.

The film is directed by Sam Mendes; written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan, based on the character written by Ian Fleming; director of photography, Roger Deakins; edited by Stuart Baird and Kate Baird; music by Thomas Newman; “Skyfall” performed by “Adele”, which by-the-way is a great song. If you haven't heard the song you can click here as it's a perfect song for the movie.

Who better then Daniel Craig to play this character again?
This is “Craig’s” third time around playing “Bond” as he made his debut in Casino Royale earning himself an award for “Best Actor in a Leading Role”. Its no wonder he’s back.

The Movie:

If you liked Casino Royale then you’ll love “Skyfall” as it does have all of the action packed dare-devil stunts 007 is famous for. Is it better than Casino Royale? I don’t think its better but as a spy-action film, “Skyfall” does have everything including your mind-blowing special effects.

The movie starts off with an exciting chase scene where he’s chasing an assassin on a motor-cycle and soon drives up on top of a roof and before you know it he’s on top of a moving train.

Bond accidentally gets shot by his partner Eve (Naomie Harris) during the chase but he is soon resurrected as he knows he’s needed back at his headquarters as its under attack.

The villain (Javier Bardem), plays his role very well as the broken little person who’s out for revenge. The man is insane, psychotic and mentally disturbed. Bardem with his flamboyant crazy character has beach blond hair and eyebrows, sure does succeed in making the audience feel uneasy with his character while at the same time bringing a sense of humor with his sexuality being a part of the motive. 007 tries to stop him from attacking the leader of the M16 agents, played by (Judi Dench).

The “Q” (Ben Whishaw), the ever so impressive computer whiz makes his return in this movie and introduces all the cool new gadgets we fans expect 007 to have. The “Q” sure has me wishing we won’t see the last of him because he alone makes the movie more appealing.

Interesting enough this film does present our favorite secret agent a bit differently because for once we do start to acknowledge the possibility that 007 might be just another man. He is getting older, and his sharp shooting isn’t quite as it used to be. We’re also introduced to his mysterious childhood, something we hadn’t seen before.

I really enjoyed the movie and I am sure you will too.

I liked the original Casino Royale with Peter Sellers and David Niven much more than the latest iteration. The problem I have with Skyfall is that the computer technology, especially tracking things and people underground is pure science fiction, and not believable. However, Daniel Craig is the most believable James Bond!

In truth, I am not familiar with the new James Bond, but I know my mother is in-love with him. And my heart will always belong to Sean Connery. Sigh!

By the way, I LOVE Judi Dench. I think I have seen most of her movies. The most memorable: Hopscotch (alongside Walter Matthau), Tea With Mussolini and Chocolat.

I've seen it twice in 2 weeks. I never thought I'd say this as a die-hard Sean Connery fan, but this is the best Bond ever! I'm playing the theme song on my piano and thanks to this article, now I'm reading about it. Tou'd think the kids had a mortgage on being fans.........move over One Direction and Justin Beiber here's one for everyone!
