SKYFALL is the latest film in the James Bond series, starring Daniel Craig as agent 007. This time Bond is called into action to prevent the identities of secret agents around the world being made public.

Violence

The moderate action violence includes several fight scenes, shoot-outs and chases. There are rapid exchanges of punches and other blows, without any focus on injury, and when characters are shot there is little clear detail of blood or injury. In some scenes, there is sight of bloodied clothing and faces as a result of violence, but there is no dwelling on either the injuries inflicted or the suffering of the victims. In one scene, a man cuts into his own chest to extract fragments of a bullet and then washes his bloody hands.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'), alongside milder terms including 'bitch', 'bloody', 'buggered', 'shit', 'hell', 'damned', 'Christ' and 'God'.

In one scene, a man and a woman kiss passionately as they stand in a shower.

The opening title sequence includes implied nudity.

Smoking occurs shown in one scene, as a woman smokes a cigarette whilst talking to a man in a club.

There is a sequence in which a villain triggers an explosion underneath a London Underground line, which causes a tube train to derail. The carriages of the train are empty and there is no indication of any passengers, and there is no sight of what happens to the driver.
