After a four-year absence on the screen, the reimagination of James Bond matures in Skyfall with a cast of familiar characters who are now comfortable with their relationship with Bond -- a secret agent who breaks the rules but completes the job.
In the 23rd film in the Bond franchise, Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Daniel Craig's first two films as James Bond were related in the story but this film apparently breaks the storyline. Producers confirmed that Quantum, the shadowy organization from "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace," will not appear.
Three reasons to watch it
1. The writers wrote a Bond who is complex and multidimensional, so there is still much to learn about him.
2. Shanghai, Scotland, London, Turkey.
3. This film marks the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film.
