Bond's loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her. When MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
First James Bond movie to have two separate train action sequences involving different trains. From Russia with Love (1963), Live and Let Die (1973), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Octopussy (1983), and GoldenEye (1995) all had just the one locomotive. This movie is also the second Bond film to have a rooftop fight on a train, the first was Octopussy (1983). Also, the Charing Cross Underground Station was used for location shooting for the underground stations seen in the movie: Temple and Westminster.
Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
M: Where is it? Is it there?
James Bond: Hard drives gone.
M: You sure?
James Bond: It's gone. Give me a minute.
M: They must have it! Get after them!
James Bond: I'm stabilizing Ronson.
M: We don't have the time!
James Bond: I have to stop the bleeding!
M: Leave him!
In 'Casino Royale', M lives in a modern penthouse suite, with the lift coming in directly to her living room. In 'Skyfall', all of a sudden she is living in what appears to be an old fashioned terraced house. Of course, an unspecified amount of time has passed between the two films, so she could have moved.
The opening credits feature Bond periodically shooting at targets, Shanghai dragons, Silva's skull logo, and the Skyfall mansion from which Bond's eyes stare out. At the end of the credits, the sky is seen falling upon the mansion.
In the European theatrical release, BBC journalist Huw Edwards presents a news report about the attack on MI6's HQ that prompts Bond to come back from the dead. In the North American release, CNN journalist Wolf Blitzer presents it instead.
