James Bond 2012
Movie Review By Roger Hooks, jr.
For you James Bond fans Skyfall marks the 23rd installment and 50th Anniversay of the James Bond franchise and as the 5th of the five previous actors which include, Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig is arguably the best Bond yet.
Now The Flow is all about Hip Hop. So we look at things from Hip Hop colored sunglasses with a Swagg over coat and gangsta brim. With that said there is no mistake that Daniel Craig is the most gangsta of all the bonds. No discredit to the Bond greats of Connery and Moore. They did there thing just as it should have been done in an era of its own. But today, in the day of faceless suicide bombers and unforseen public massacres you need a Bond that has no problem in getting down right gutter with it... And Daniel Craig gets gutter in Skyfall.
The movie opens up with in the first 5 minutes with people shot, a car chase, a motorcyle chase, and roof fight on top of a moving train. Did I mention the motorcycle chase was partly across the roofs of houses?
Without giving away too much of the story Daniel Craigs character 007 found his way back to his roots and at one time had to take his fight underground on more than one occasion.
The famed "Bond Girl" accolades can be had by the sexy Naomi Harris and the ultra hot French actroess Berenice Marlohe. Naomi, who's also known for her reoccuring role as Tia Dalma in the Blockbuster Franchise Pirates of the Carribean, plays Eve where as Naomi plays the role of Severine.
The villian is played by spanish actor Javier Bardem known as Silva. Silva pursues his revenge on the MI6 and M as he blames his pain and disfigurement to his past loyalty to the organization as a secret agent and betrayal of the M in his line of duty.
Overall the movie is action packed from beginning to end with plenty of hand to hand fist action, crashes, thrashes and explosions. 007 also delivery a hint of humor in this installment that is always well times and brilliantly placed. TheFlowOnline.com gives this flick a "Pay Full Price" rating as the full cinematic experience is needed to truly appreciate the exotic locations of the film. Go check it out.
