BOND 23 is BOND 23 no longer. The Sam Mendes-helmed, Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Judi Dench (that cast gets more impressive every day) Bond film will be titled SKYFALL. Says Mendes, "SKYFALL is its own story. It doesn't connect with the first two films."
Although I felt QUANTUM OF SOLACE was a weak entry into the Bond series, I like where it left Bond at the end, and getting blasphemous here, but Daniel Craig's my favorite Bond. Yeah, even over Connery. He brings something primal and razor-sharp to Bond, and out of all the actors who have played the role, I think he may be the closest to what Ian Fleming intended. The offical synopsis of the plot reads, "Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost." Hope SKYFALL delivers!
