Debate the gadgets, cars, locations, villains or girls, but know this: It’s good to be 50, and it’s good to be James Bond.

Fortunately, the 10 years since “Die Another Day” have been kind.

Out with the Cold War dinosaur — M said it, so don’t shoot the messenger, Pierce Brosnan fans — trying to negotiate a world and genre that had moved beyond him.

In with a muscular disregard for authority, a man ripping a new 007 out of the old and getting smarter and ruthlessly more suave through “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace.”

In “Skyfall,” which opens in theaters today, Daniel Craig displays a more “classic” Bond, according to director Sam Mendes in interview for the special magazine “50 years of Bond: The Ultimate Ranking Guide” from American Media Inc.

“It’s more playful than the last two films. I wanted to create a Bond film as classic as possible,” Mendes said.

However, Mendes didn’t define if “classic” is in the vein of Sean Connery or Roger Moore’s or some mixture thereof.

Bond fans will just have to see for themselves.
