Best Bond film ever. Honestly, I'm a big Bond fan. Nothing compares to the original Connery films, of course. But the Bond films sort of lost their way, and now they've found their path.
Skyfall strips the over-the-top Brosnan Bond back to basics... leaving a couple of simple gadgets, no over-the-top pithy dialogue, a good story/character development. This movie has pacing, acting, emotion, great action and great music. If you can only be satisfied by Michael Bay films where every 5 seconds something has to explode, then go watch another movie. This is ACTUAL filmmaking here. This isn't ridiculous fight scenes like the Bourne movies. This movie is made for people that actually HAVE attention spans and actually HAVE some taste.
And for old school Bond fans, there are a couple of things tossed in there that will make you smile... some that'll make you cheer... and a couple that'll make you tear up.
Oh, and my wife likes it. And she's normally right about things.
