This isn't the daring, suave, and skillful James Bond that blazes across movie screens every few years. This youthful Bond, still in high school, has insecurities, doesn't always get the girl, and isn't quite the best there is. But he is determined, resourceful, and brave as he discovers the strange machinations of Lord Randolph Halibor, the owner of the castle at Loch SilverFin. Delivering numerous accents, including upper-class British, as well as Scots, Midwestern American, and German, Nathaniel Parker proves his ability to transition from nationality to nationality, often in the same scene. Parker also executes Bond's voice with the precise amount of emotion every time, whether the lad is feeling brazen, fearful, lonely, or angry.
