Skyfall / James Bond Movie: What are the major plot holes in Skyfall?
Ottway Ducard stashed this in Movies
I find it hard to believe that MI6 could be that incompetent.
First, they lose that hard drive.
Then, they get hacked.
Then, despite having been hacked, they capture the hacker and put him in a computer-controlled prison (maybe a physical lock might have been a good idea) then plug his laptop in to their network and turn it on.
Then Bond convinces M that the smartest thing to do is ditch the entire country's security apparatus in favour of driving up to Scotland with basically no weapons, no backup and deliberately leaving a trail for the bad guy to follow. Which gets M killed.
That kind of annoyed me - but not as much as the bit where Bond (the Luddite) helps Q (the computer genius) decrypt a message by spotting some hexadecimal scrolling past on the screen. The message has an N and a U in it. N and U aren't in the hexadecimal alphabet! #nerdrage
Good thing people don't go to James Bond movies for the plot.
possibly. i thought casino royale was great; and had a nasty twist of a surprise. brilliant, really.
i was hoping sky fall would be more like casino royale. were there any major plot holes to casino royale?
apparently, one plot hole is that he gets dealt a straight flush. i got dealt a straight flush my first time ever playing hold 'em. anecdotal. but i don't think that is a major plothole like the ones in sky fall.
just goes to show, that the series will now be driven by classic fans and old re-hashes like a clever Q, money penny, new M et. al rather than a savvy plot like Casino Royale.
Shame, will just have to wait til Nolan does Bond.
