Skyfall: A New James Bond Who Is No Different than All the Other Action Heroes
The James Bond saga marks its 50th year of films with "Skyfall" (2012), and it does not disappoint fans of action. Directed by Sam Mendes ("American Beauty") for MGM and EON Productions, it is full of the usual Bond themes: he must come back from an injury; the world order is at risk; Bond fakes his own death; a villain who delights at the very idea of Bond and of having the secret agent under his control takes his sweet time disposing of him.
