Skyfall Delivers!! Escpecially in IMAX!!!!! Worth $73 for the family... occasionally... as a treat!
Great suspense, action, gun play, fist-fighting, explosions, character development, villainry, heroics, back story, twists, juxtaposition of good and evil. I grew up with Moore as Bond, suffered through Timothy Dalton. Pierce Brosnan was an upgrade, but most actors with a British accent would have been (Rutger Hauer, Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson?). Daniel Craig is far and away the best since Sean Connery. Would have liked to have seen Connery in the grounds keeper's role in Skyfall. Judi Dench also was great in her role as M, but Ralph Fiennes will be excellent as well. Like the redemption of him as a battle-hardened veteran of the IRA years rather than a bureaucrat as it began. He will be a good director of double-naught program. Q and Moneypenney are good additions. Never thought of Q as representing "Quartermaster" division - nice touch! Downside that I don't know how they will resolve: only three movies in, Craig, as Bond is already depicted as getting too old for field spy work???
