James Bond is back in the 23rd film of the iconic franchise, Skyfall. Out this week.
After a top-secret operation goes horribly wrong, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is declared missing and assumed dead. As the identity of every active MI6 undercover agent is leaked onto the internet, M’s (Judy Dench) ability as leader is called into question, and she is put under the investigation of a government review.
Soon, the fears of many become reality, and the secret service itself is attacked. Bond reappears, and M uses the opportunity to seek out a dangerous villain with connections to both of them, Raoul Silva (Javier Barden). 007’s search takes him from London to the South China Sea, a trail that sees his loyalty to M tested, as secrets from her past begin to emerge.
Skyfall is, along with The Dark Night Rises and The Avengers, is surely one of the most anticipated movie's of 2012. It has been breaking box-office records overseas and will continue to be a hit once it is released this week. The twenty-third Bond film, and the third to feature Daniel Craig as the moody and rugged agent, marks just over fifty years since the release of Dr No and, because of that alone, it's bound to be amazing.
