The James Bond films are famous for its sexy girls, drinking and violence, however the Pope has given his own seal of approval for the new film ‘Skyfall’.
Pope Benedict doesn’t like Harry Potter or the ‘The Da Vinci’ code, but the Vatican is partial to James Bond having dedicated five articles to the film in the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.
It seems the newspaper has nothing to say about Bond’s philandering and murderous lifestyle, writing that the film had: “adrenalin-pumped action to exotic locations, beautiful Bond girls, and the inevitable vodka Martini – shaken, not stirred.”
It also lauded the performance of Dame Judi Dench, observing she portrays “the fragility of a woman who hides behind the cold mask of the boss of the powerful MI6, rendering her less distant and more appealing”.
The newspaper was founded in 1861 and is a mouthpiece for the Vatican, previously typical articles published would be about religion and the Pope however it has since branched out into more popular areas.
The Pope isn’t alone in his love for ‘Skyfall’, the film has been embraced by critics and audiences alike, with the film earning $100 million world-wide.
