Over the weekend I went and saw the newest of the James Bond flicks, Skyfall, and I must admit to being impressed. If you have not seen it, it is exactly what you think it is:
- Lots of Action
- Good looking cast
- Not a demand for high quality acting
One thing that James Bond, played by Daniel Craig, is especially known for, is his impeccable style. His street gear, his suit game, and his workout gear are all impressive at all times. Nothing like chasing down some of the highest trained spies in the world while rocking a perfectly tailored, two buttoned suit, shirt and tie buttoned up, and some of the finest kicks known to man. When you go running around after dudes who are trying to kill some of your best friends, are you picturing yourself doing such in your best suit and tie combo? You will after seeing this movie.
Daniel Craig was by no means my favorite choice of James Bond in today’s acting class of men, but I can say that he grew on me in this movie. He always seems to have a kind of smug smirk on his face at all times which is a little hard to take serious, but he did a good job at limiting it throughout this film. Based on his previous Bond films, I believe this was his best by a long shot.
I saw the flick with a few of my buddies and it was hard not to compliment on every wardrobe. For reasons of not sounding like women, I think we limited ourselves to literally one compliment on his attire, but found ourselves awing at all of them. He rocked several, nice pea coats, scarves, jackets, and suits.
Catch the film some point before it goes out of style, but remember that his clothes will not have by then.
