The James Bond franchise is without a doubt the most successful film series ever. Containing over 20 Bond films in total and counting. From the classic first bond film to the most current, we can definitely say that both will share many similarities and differences. With that being said, I’m going to compare the first ever bond film, Dr. No (1962), to the most current Bond film Skyfall (2012).

In the film, Dr. No, the antagonist is held up in a deserted private island called Crab Key. On this island, holds a powerful radio beam that he was planning to use to disrupt the American’s missile launch program. As his way of getting back at them for denying his offer to help. In the film, Skyfall, the villain also had his own private island located in Japan called Hashima. The island consist of old run down buildings and this became Silva’s lair. Silva’s plan was to take down “ M “ the leader of MI6. Another similarity share between the two film’s villains is that both have their own deformity. In Dr. No, the antagonist has a deformity on his hand as both of his hands were lost in an accident and his constant experimental use on atomic energy. Eventually being replaced with powerful mechanical black steel hands. Capable of crushing anything that he wishes. We can see this at the dinner scene between Dr. No and Bond, as Dr. No crushes a metal statue with his mechanical hands. In the film Skyfall, the Villain also have his own deformity as his jaws are completely destroyed from being tortured when he was a former MI6 agent way back. Silva shows his deformed face after removing the prosthetic dentures when he was captured by
