SkyFall: 007
"Bond, James Bond." The character in Skyfall, James Bond, played by actor, Daniel Craig, is certainly on the short list of actors worthy of playing in this movie. Skyfall has an excellent piece of filmmaking, art, entertainment, and action all combined. First, Daniel Craig does much more with the James Bond character than he has during his incumbency with the franchise. Second, Skyfall was written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan whose combined experience on Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace demonstrates maturity in producing a meaningful and somewhat relevant manifestation of the current James Bond . Third, the Director Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins made Skyfall an nice visual cacophony of technology, light, angles cityscapes and landscapes. In addition to the movis Skyfall: 007, Daniel Craig's character, James Bond, is easily the most physically fit and frequently shirtless of any actor that played James Bond before, but aside from that, Skyfall, is an excellent piece of filmmaking, art, entertainment, and action.

Skyfall, however, is a film that sees Daniel Craig do much more with the James Bond character than he has during his incumbency with the franchise. Although we’ve all seen this before in previous Bond films, James is again being portrayed as an antiquated tool for maintaining global law and order via black ops. Although, Craig portrays more weakness and vulnerability than he was ever accustomed to before and although he’s still no “Mr. Sensitivity,” there is a moment where he sheds tears and it is quite poignant, moving and the most humane portrayal of the character since George Lazen by in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Daniel is still solid with the less frequent verbal barbs and always hits his mark for action. He still can’t convince me with women, but his evolved relationship with M allows for him to discard the aura of Mr. Roboto.
