Skyfall Dazzles Audiences!

By Evan Smith on December 8, 2012

What started as Ian Flemings book series has morphed into one of the most prodigious movie franchise in history. James Bond first big screen appearance came in 1962, as he squared off against the devious Dr. No. Bond was portrayed by the Scottish actor Sean Connery, who set the bar for how James Bond should be perceived. Bond was a sly, charismatic, coy, secret agent, who always seemed to find himself in dangers path. His antics with women and danger are a perfect formula for an appealing series. Heroes are often defined by the insurmountable challenges that are put in front of them. For example, Batman and Spiderman are two of the most recognizable superheroes because of their vast array of enemies. James Bond falls right into this category, as he has a plethora of worthy foes. The list of villains include insidious masterminds Goldfinger, Blofeld, Dr. No, Oddjob, Jaws, among many other classics.

In the latest installment of the Bond series, Javier Bardem plays Raoul Silva, a cyber terrorist who posses one of Bonds greatest challenges to date. Bardem plays his weird, sadistic character to perfection, as a ruthless villain. Skyfall is riveting, as it intertwines an adequate blend of plot and action. After a lot of skepticism of Daniel Craig playing James Bond because of his blonde hair, he has embraced the role exquisitely. Craig has put a darker take on the Bond series, similar to what Christian Bale did with the Batman series. Skyfall incorporates vintage material, as it pays homage to old characters, with the return of gadget specialist Q, as well as the reintroduction of Bond’s secretary, Ms. Moneypenny. Skyfall rises to the occasion, as a high rush adrenaline movie where Bond dazzles once again.
