Skyfall


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Yeah, after seeing Skyfall, I felt that the new trilogy laid the groundwork for Bond truly becoming 007 and he is no longer a "blunt instrument" as called by M in Casino Royale.

Finally got around to seeing Skyfall tonight- driving home someone posed the question to me about Craig's running style. He is very tight and upright, and it appears that he is somehow sped up. I admit I did not time his strides to determine stride frequency.
What does anyone else think?

Daniel Craig is indeed a very compact 5'10. He runs with a choppy motion, not a fluid sprint stride. That said, he runs a whole lot better than most matinee idols, Tom Cruise being among the worst.

Skyfall is poised to break the $Billion Barrier in the next few weeks!
