James (not Bond) in Porthcawl has noticed a flaw in the otherwise absolutely true to life Skyfall:
Whilst Skyfall is a great film in many respects, there is one element that troubles me.
There is a section in the film where Daniel Craig’s Bond is reunited with the iconic Aston Martin DB5.
Not just any DB5, but the actual gadget- and gun-laden DB5 used by Sean Connery’s Bond in Goldfinger, which was last seen being crashed into a wall in 1964.
It’s made clear in Skyfall that this car is in the personal possession of Bond, apparently in full working order including ammunition, stored away for when it’s needed.
So answer me this: how the naked arse does Craig’s Bond have this vehicle? No explanation is offered in the film. Are we to assume that Craig’s Bond is the same Bond who carried out the Goldfinger mission? Without time travel there seems to be no way for the car to have passed ownership from one Bond to another in this way.
Please help me resolve this as it’s making my head hurt.
You’re watching a film based on a character who’s been portrayed over half a century by seven actors with completely different faces/voices/heights/hair, who mixes only with stupidly-named women, is the least discreet spy of all time, has myriad emotional problems that the viewer is expected to overlook, who never does his paperwork properly, and would be well into his eighties or even nineties if time was running as it should – and THIS is your problem?
Stop trying to apply logic to the Bond universe and have a lie down.
