Very disappointed with #Skyfall far to long and slow. Great photography though.

My review for #Skyfall : disappointing. And I'm a very big fan of the Bond novels, but have to say that the opening scene was marvelous!

Aston Martin DB5 (Goldfinger, 1964)
The classic Bond spy car, the Aston Martin appeared in five films total. Its original incarnation included bulletproof panels, oil slick, smoke screen, machine guns, rotating license plates, tire slashers, a homing screen for tracking the bad guy, radar receiver, bumper basher and of course the passenger ejector seat.
