SKYFALL is a "must see" film for anyone who ever had a desire to know "Bond, James Bond"
Daniel Craig now defines Bond as Ian Fleming may have envisioned him, "Flawed Perfection".
Sam Mendes directs the action in suburb fashion, and the protagonist, well, you must go to see the film to discover this brilliant performance. It is one of those movie I will see again, in theater, and certainly add to my collection later.

...this series just gets better with age.
Daniel Craig, beautiful cars, beautiful women, beautiful cinematography, an amazing score, great acting, and most importantly... A PLOT!
This big budget movie delivers on every penny with spectacular settings and visuals. Skyfall modernizes the Bond experience to be relevant to our age of digital espionage. Never fear... there's no lack of high flying stunts and massive explosions.
Throw in a plot not riddled with massive holes, and you end up with a movie going experience the excites the senses and leaves the entire audience clapping at the conclusion. Go see this movie!

Ok - Bond and Christmas go together like horse & carriage - I'm from the old school and no one was as good as Sean Connery, except Craig is coming awfully close. He's sensitive w/o being sappy (a la Dalton) and yet totally believable - he makes Bond real again. I'm a lot older now, know more and am rarely surprised, but this movie did accomplish what it's supposed to. The Bond format was never meant to be a message vehicle or was a ground-breaking medium for dramatic insights - it's escapism - plain and simple. We don't have to get a message out of every dramatic event! Saw this in IMAX and recommend it. Craig is totally plausible, homage to the old Bond (this is 50/y anniversary after all), twist on twist - you will not guess the end (well OK you might, but it's not obvious), definitely for adults, very intense - not for young kids. Don't look for a soul-searching message, but do look for another facet to the Bond we all know and love.

Skyfall was delayed for quite a while due to legal complications but it is worth the wait. Sam Mendes does an outstanding job as director balancing great action sequences with effective character development.
Daniel Craig continues to wear the Bond mantle extremely well - although age is creeping up on both of them.
Javier Badem is destined to enter the pantheon of best Bond villians ever.
