  • Abstract: This article considers Skyfall (Dir. Mendes, 2012) and the rebooting of James Bond. Using feminist and geopolitical theorizing, the focus is on the aging body. No other Bond film has been so preoccupied with aging and whether Bond can “bounce back.” Bond's resilience is critical but at the expense of M's sacrifice.
