Bond Gets Back To Basics In Skyfall

In the newest installment of the 007 series, Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes, legendary character James Bond goes out with the new and in with the old.

Bond, played by actor Daniel Craig, revisits many of the old factors that made Bond movies so famous in the past.

In the previous Bond adventures, Casino Royal and Quantum of Solace, the stories lacked enchanting technological devices by master mind Q, who was played by many different actors.

However, in Skyfall the audience is introduced to a completely new Q, played by Ben Wishaw. Though not with as many gadgets as past movies produced, he does give Bond the new toys he is looking for to help him with his mission.

Q constructed vehicles, a major aspect missing in the last two movies, return in Skyfall.

The new movie also sees 007 revisit an old crush; his Aston Martin DB5, which can also be found in past Bond movies such as Goldfinger and Thunderball.

Skyfall is a griping story with lots of edge of the seat action, a threatening villain, and who could forget a lovely actress who enchants the heroic Bond.
