Fifty years may have passed by since the showing of ‘Doctor No’ in October 1962, starring Sean Connery, but the latest Bond film, ‘Skyfall’, shows that Bond has a future ahead and is very much alive and kicking.
While being a fan of both Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan for their portrayals of the fictitious character James Bond, Daniel Craig has demonstrated that he is more than a one hit wonder. Now I have to be honest, I wasn’t very enamored by ‘Casino Royale’ which I found very haphazard at best and at worst…well I had better not say. However, in this latest film, Daniel brought a new spark to the eye of Bond and very much hope he has many more performances ahead. This time he seemed to make the role his own, and actually left an impression, and for his age, well he is looking rather hot!
Overall I’d rate the film 9 out of 10, and very much look forward to what comes next. It was action packed and had me gripped in my seat as the film went on. I loved the new Q, rather dashing with his glasses that would not be out of place in the film ‘A Single Man’, with a vision of the future with James’ Walther PPK. If only we had the technology available to the armed police for, it would ensure that guns could only be used by those licensed to use them. I also liked the nice touch flashing back with a bit of nostalgia with Connery’s Aston Martin used in Goldfinger (if I remember correctly). Yes, it is definitely one to watch, so why are you still here?
