Incredible GTA V Remake Of Skyfall's Opening Scene

On the back of two BAFTAs, two Oscars and two Grammys, you might assume the acclaim for Sam Mendes’s Skyfall couldn’t get much weightier.

But now it has - thanks to a doggedly creative bunch of gamers who've used the multiplayer mode in the latest installment of Grand Theft Auto to meticulously re-create the film’s opening blow-out action sequence.

Assembled as various modified characters in the sparse desert lands surrounding San Andreas, the Brass Ballers team captured all the action - motorcycle jump on to the train, dust-up over a mighty bridge, and, naturally, that misaligned sniper’s bullet which sends 007 plummeting to the lake below him - in astonishing fashion, even using a player in a helicopter to capture those trickier shots.

All in all, it truly is cap-doffing stuff. But don’t take our word for it - check the video below, which might just be the best digital Bond footage we’ve seen since hammering Goldeneye on the N64.
