SKYFALL Review. Best Bond Movie

SKYFALL Review By: MattInRC Skyfall is richly crafted and engrossing, with an ending that solidifies its status among the best Bond movies ever. For those of us who've enjoyed James Bond over the years, there's been one issue haunting his gadget/girls hustler persona - is there a genuine person under those fancy suits and behind the wheel of his Aston Martin? Die Another Day sought to answer that by taking him off the grid, only to leave us with a great first act and an over-the-top third. And while origin tales such as Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace have entertained, our nagging question remained. Skyfall responds by delving deeper into the mythos, blending great storytelling, beautiful women, and an instantly classic bad guy into one of the best Bond movies ever. After a botched MI6 operation in Istanbul over a stolen hard drive containing a NOC list of agents and an ensuing motorcycle chase across the city, James Bond ( Daniel Craig , Layer Cake) fi

Skyfall Clip. How Cool Is Bond?

James Bond : Secret agent, ladies' man, construction worker. Wait, a blue-collar turn for the black tie 007? Not exactly, but he does prove that he can operate a crane to devastating impact in this first clip from the upcoming 23rd Bond film, Skyfall . We've seen plenty of action on forward-chugging trains before (it's pretty much where film got its start), but rare is it that a guy busts open the back of one with a massive construction vehicle. And looks so darn cool and collected while doing so. But that's Bond: a special character, who on Friday celebrates his 50th anniversary of being on screen. Watch the clip after the Jump... While Daniel Craig stars in this Bond film -- his third -- it all started with Sean Connery in Dr. No, one of a flurry of 007 flicks to come out in the early '60s. The franchise has been counting down to this special occassion all summer and fall, and to honor the birth of the world's most cunning (and shape-shiftin

New Action Packed Images From SKYFALL

Empire got their hands on Exclusive new images from the film SKYFALL , starring  Daniel Craig and  Javier Bardem. As the mammoth, six-month production moves into its final few weeks, the producers of Skyfall decided it was time for some show and (to a much lesser extent) tell. For the past two days, the doors of Pinewood have been opened (well, moved slightly ajar) to the world’s press. Including a weirdly convincing fibreglass tube train, a partially flooded subterranean tunnel and a platform of Temple Station, all constructed on the gargantuan 007 Stage — then were also treated to a small but impressive explosion, during a scene in which Bond ( Daniel Craig ) desperately pursues this movie’s big bad, Silva ( Javier Bardem ). See all the images after the Jump... The sense was of a movie as tough and gritty as you’d expect of the Craig-era Bonds, but also shot (digitally) with a pin-sharp elegance rarely before seen, by director Sam Mendes, and his celebrat
