Title:  Skyfall  [videorecording]

Starring:  Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Judi Dench, Albert Finney

Collection:  Movies

When Bond’s latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Mallory, the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust – Bond. 007 aided only by field agent Eve, follows a trail that leads to Silva, whose motives have yet to reveal themselves.

What a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise in films!  Daniel Craig returns as 007, playing the role in this third outing in a way that humanizes Bond.  This Bond gets hurt, physically and emotionally,  creating a vulnerability and complexity that transports the well-known character to a new level of relatability for the audience.  The story is a roller-coaster of a tale, with twists and turns that will keep you not only engaged, but on the edge of your seat.  Hopefully, we will not need to wait as long for the next installment of the James Bond series, rumored to be coming in 2014.
