Posted on 10/13/2012 9:35:17 PM PDT by Vince Ferrer
When is a Bond film not a Bond film? Its a question likely to prey on the minds of the very many cinema goers who will see this 23rd official 007 adventure. Skyfall shakes together familiar elements of the Ian Fleming canon the cars, the guns, the exotic locales with the dames to match into a blistering comic book escapade that the old Bond, and one suspects Fleming too, would find altogether alien.

Comic books are for kids.
Well, who knows? We have yet to see it.
I have, however, been through a two week splurge of all the Bond movies being played and replayed on my G-Sat here in the Philippines.
The most significant reset of the 23-film series that's unconnected to a change of the actor playing 007, this long-awaited third outing for Daniel Craig feels more seriously connected to real-world concerns than any previous entry, despite the usual outlandish action scenes, glittering settings and larger-than-life characters.
Dramatically gripping while still brandishing a droll undercurrent of humor, this beautifully made film will certainly be embraced as one of the best Bonds by loyal fans worldwide and leaves you wanting the next one to turn up sooner than four years from now.
A Saturday afternoon double bill - “Dr. No” and “From Russia With Love.”
I never thought they'd find anyone who could compete with Sean Connery - though Pierce Brosnan came close.
Then Daniel Craig showed up.
This guy has brought a whole new brand of physical toughness and sex appeal to the role.
The theme song “You only Skyfall once” is superb!
Thanks for that link. I'm not quite sure what to make of a film review based entirely on trailers and the theme song, but the author certainly knows his Bond films.
I agree about Craig.I liked casino royale better than golden eye. Only liked one movie From the last two Bond’s. Hoping skyfall turns out better than qos.
The opening action for casino royale has to be the longest duration of any bond films.
The villain in Quantum of Solace is just like AlGore...
Craig is the perfect man for the role. The best Bond ever. Yum, ;)
Nothing gets me into the theaters but I’ll be seeing Skyfall for sure. It looks dark and depressing but>>> Sean Connery and the others had a lot more joy bedding the Bond girls but>>>>>
My favorite Bond theme by Duran Duran. They should be brought back to do another. This is the only Bond theme to go to #1
I love the strings on this that rise making the temperature hotter. Strings added by John Barry much to Duran’s surprise
“into a blistering comic book escapade that the old Bond, and one suspects Fleming too, would find altogether alien.”
Wasn’t Tyler Perry responsible for this? What would one expect?
I downloaded the theme song (from iTunes), best Bond theme song that I have heard in a long time.
Daniel Craig is a very vocal worshiper of Obama. That ruins him for me.
Of all of the Bonds, I’m rethinking Timothy Dalton. His version of Bond was a bit too early. I still think George Lazenby is the worst Bond.
It was all downhill for Bond after they made From Russia With Love.
