Well... I watched Skyfall last night. I'm not going to put any spoilers here but I will say that it's a very different film from any that has come before it. It's a really good film and even if a few things didn't feel right it was seriously good. 4 years ago almost to the day I wrote some plot suggestions for Bond 23 here - so how many came together? Quite a few!
- Judi Dench in a starring role – check
- Bond at home in London/the UK – check
- More freerunning – a tiny bit... still: check
- Active service in the Navy– nope
- Less CGI – hmmm - mostly
- Give a little bit more back story – check
- A little more humour – a bit
- More of Feilix Leiter - nope
- More “Bond, James Bond.” – no comment
- Training – some - not quite what I had in mind but still, a bit
- More exciting free-time sports – nope
- More homages – oh yeah
- More of the gritty, serious and real feel which some of the reviewers seemed to dislike – oh yeah!
- A little more flirtation – check
- Technology/Gadgets – check
- Some new locations – check
Overall? This film really does deliver something different!
