I guess I keep waiting for the next Casino Royale. I had high expectations for this movie and it did let me down a bit. A typical Bond movie, but setting up for a new series with a new cast. Like I said, lots of action, the story takes a back seat, but well done overall.
That Adele song sounds much better in the movie than it does on the radio.

My wife and I liked the movie very much; rated it an A. Being senior citizens, we have probably seen all 23 of the Bond movies, and Skyfall ranks up there at the very top. Daniel Craig seems now very comfortable in his role as 007. Judy Dench was superb as usual. The bad guy was wonderfully evil. It's a great story and definitely worth seeing in IMAX. I don't think some scenes are appropriate for kids younger than teenagers. One younger boy seemed to clutch his older brother often during intense moments. Bringing back elements of some of the past Bond movies was fun, and the homoerotic scene was a bit of a shock, although well done. The Broccoli family should be very proud of this latest attempt to keep the Bond genre alive and well as it enters its second half century. Bravo!

I have been excited to see the latest Bond movie and it was not a disappointment. Even though it is listed at almost 2.5 hours, I didn't feel uncomfortable as the action was sufficient to keep me interested.
I was happy to see the re-introduction of the Q branch and they didn't go overboard with gadgets which also made me happy. There was a nod to the Sean Connery Bond which was somewhat nostalgic but they put it out of our minds in typical Bond fashion.
The acting was very good and the locations shots were inspiring. The pace of the film was just right for me.
I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in Bond or action. The violence and sexual overtones make this move a PG-13 movie in my view.
I look forward to the next Bond

I love 007 since I was a kid watching them on TV with my Dad. This is by far my Favorite Bond of the "Modern Era" Bond movies. Everything comes full circle in this one. The best part is, I can't wait to see the next one!
