Film review: James Bond is back on track
If the characters in Ian Fleming's novels aged in real time, James Bond would be in his early 90s by now — probably a bit too long in the tooth to take the abuse meted out to him in “Skyfall,” the 23rd “official” Bond film (“official” meaning one produced by Saltzman and Broccoli’s Eon Productions). Luckily, even as the films' settings proceed inexorably through time (like the rest of us), Bond manages to remain in or around his 30s or 40s.
