Movie Review: Skyfall
But the trailer for Skyfall hinted at my favorite story elements, like 'identity', and I must say Skyfall didn't let me down.
007, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is trying the recover a harddrive with the identities of multiple MI6 agents when the pursuit ends with Bond being assumed dead and declared K.I.A. After being off the grid for months, Bond resurfaces when an attack on the MI6 headquarters leaves 8 operative dead and 5 undercover agents outed via Youtube. Bond tracks down his foe from Turkey in Hong Kong which leads him to Silva (Javier Bardem), a former MI6 agent left for dead by M's (Judi Dench) orders at the hands of the Chinese. Now, Silva is back seeking vengeance by killing and exposing undercover agents, publicly humiliating M as the face of the agency. Bond must overcome his own sense of abandonment in order to stop Silva to save M along with the agency.

"The whole office goes up in smoke and that bloody thing survives..." - Bond. James Bond.
