Movie – SKYFALL (James Bond 007)
Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Daniel Craig returns for his 3rd James Bond movie and he brings back the same charm and debonair of the world’s most famous (albiet fictional) secret agent. Look out for a new Q (quartermaster who provides 007 with lots of cool gadgets and cars), Moneypenny, and a new character who is played by the suave and sophisticated British actor Ralph Fiennes.
Continuing the new reboot of the 007 franchise, Daniel Craig’s 007 is not the invincible secret agent as portrayed by some previous Bonds yet stays true to the essence of the character. The franchise reboot is a more realistic and up to date portrayal of the character and the current day world situation which I suspect is to capture a new younger generation of fans while staying true to it’s roots to placate and satisfy old school Bond fans.
Yes there are some product placements which we have come to expect however the manner in which the are placed (or shall we say destroyed) is somewhat more subtle than Pierce Brosnan driving a Russian tank through a trailer carrying Perrier mineral water bottles or the Marlboro and 7-Up billboards in the Roger Moore Bond films.
The movie also gives viewers a clue as to Bond’s family history and origin. You must watch the show carefully, there are a lot of subtle details which are brilliantly woven into the movie.
I loved it. Not just the action but pay attention to the storyline. If you are a Bond fan your MUST watch SKYFALL. If you are not, I think you might be after wacthing this one…
I won’t give away too much but I will say this – the franchise reboot is 100% complete now paying homage to the past 50 years while launching a new era of Bond films.
Here’s to the next 50 years of 007!
Skyfall opens in Malaysian cinemas on 1 November 2012.
