Skyfall

Skyfall, editorial content, 007, James Bond, spy movie podcasts, EON Production movies, espionage, Daniel CraigSkyfall, released in 2012, is often ranked at Daniel Craig’s second-best Bond movie, behind Casino Royale, and Eon Productions 23rd Bond movie.   The jury is still out on No Time to Die.    In Skyfall, the real identities of all of MI6’s agents has been stolen.  Patrice is the guy to chase – a great pre-title sequence in this movie – and when MI6 HQ is blown up, Bond who has been missing and thought dead – returns to help.   Patrice leads Bond to Silva – the ultimate bad guy, who has a vendetta to eliminate M (Judi Dench). 

 

The rest is Bond’s attempt to protect M, and the ultimate showdown at Skyfall, the name of James Bond’s home when he was a child.
