Ever since Daniel Craig took over Bond's tuxedo, the series has been grittier and rawer than in previous installments—which sometimes featured hovercrafts, chicken farmers, and Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist named Christmas Jones.
Skyfall instead features violent shootouts, brutal fistfights, and frightening scenes of suspense—like the entire showdown against Silva at Skyfall. However, as this movie is an attempt to bridge the Bond of the past with a Bond of the future, it doesn't shy from its own goofy moments. One notable moment involves Bond bouncing off a Komodo dragon in a Macau casino. At least Daniel Craig can feel confident knowing that when he is replaced as Bond, he can still have a role as Pitfall Harry.
