Director: Terence Young
Terence Young’s “Dr.No ” is the film that claims the title of launching the James Bond saga. Dr.No has been commented as the closest cinematic interpretation of a Bond novel in tone and plot. If we ignore the big explosion in the film’s finale, Dr.No can be defined as a low-key bond movie. Unlike the more popular movies of the series there are no gadgets to help Bond in solving crime, he has to rely on his skills and ingenuity alone to survive. Moreover, this is the only Bond movie where you’ll see him appearing brutally bloody and beaten but still finds a way to win.
The plot of the movie is set in a situation where one of his fellow agents gets killed and Bond is sent out to find out what happened and who’s behind it. The rest is the story of Bond finding the trail of the killer, a secretive scientist, Dr.No. This discovery starts a chain reaction of further implications.
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Christopher McQuarrie’s “Jack Reacher” is a cinematic adaptation of Lee Child’s famous novel One Shot. The film is more of a book lover’s movie than a typical fast-paced action movie.

Director: Sam Mendes
Sam Mendes Skyfall is the 23 Addition to the James Bond series that’s produced by Eon Productions. As always Sam Mendes blows our minds in ways we couldn’t fathom.
The main thing Bond (Craig) breaks down in Skyfall is that load of breaks about his mid-life crisis. Even after failing his fitness test, Bond uncovers how he’s awesome at 50, making his age his most admirable weapon.
Skyfall is perhaps the most passionate Bond film yet, James returning to his youth home, M confronting her exit. In any case, despite its nostalgia, it has standard Bond fun – Oriental heavies, murmuring Iguanas, casinos, martini’s, revealing outfits, dissolving kisses in warm showers, twistedness, saxophones, and shimmering repartee. Indeed, it lags somewhat, gets sad, and despite a hot Miss Moneypenny (Harris), its provocativeness feels slightly limited. However, get Skyfall in any case. It’s “ for your eyes only”.
Director: Roger Donaldson

Director: Daniel Zelik Berk
Daniel Zelik Berk’s “Damascus Cover” is a Screen adaptation of the famous novel of the same name by Howard Kaplan. Howard’s genuine familiarity with the setting and atmosphere having previously lived in the Middle Eastern part of the globe is evident even in the script. It’s fascinating to see this space of the world’s surveillance investigated given the countries’ contention, and it assists with adding some resemblance to depth and coarseness.
That being said, Ben-Sion is no James Bond. He now and again slips up and it’s a much-needed development inside the genre. There’s no rejecting that Rhys Meyers — whose emphasis is flawless — makes for a breaking spy either, his extraordinary face ideal for depicting a man with inward evil presences who’s in a tough situation. Thirlby radiates warmth against his chilly, fit and-booted usable, while Navid Negahban likewise turns in a solid exhibition as a bad Syrian general, his wicked, unethical methods of getting data concealed by his incredible position and enchanting grin.
The whole movie is a journey through the dangerous terrains of love and survival, soaked in the fabric of espionage and the Middle East.
