SKYFALL, JAMES BOND OO7

Bond

Personally, I loved this movie. Since Daniel Craig took the role over, the James Bond series seems to get more intriguing with each addition. **Spoiler Alert** Over time, I came to enjoy the role of M, played by Judy Dench. In this movie, the writers figured they should turn the trend around and return to where other Bond movies have been: under the management of a male in the lead role. M is gone but there is now a secretary named Moneypenny, and Mr. Inventor “Q” who I hope won’t start inventing outlandish gadgets like his predecessors in the other Bond movies. But back to the review. Bond has ghosts in his past, we finally get to see him as a young man and the horrors he went through. It takes away the mystery of why he was recruited into British Secret Service and why he fit in so well. Bond has demons, which is why this Bond installment is so endearing — we finally get to see what wears on his mind and know that even James Bond, while a great spy, is a wreck within his own mind. But it doesn’t make him any less glamerous. There are sex scenes but not graphic, and the villian is just as calculating as Bond, which makes him even more interesting.  Bond, in this movie, becomes … human for a spark of a moment. I loved that and this movie because of it.
