Worth every nickel. IMAX – worth the additional cost.
The opening credits were really unique and I really liked them. Action scenes were wicked - made me squirm in my seat. Characters were excellent and well developed – villains and heroes. Even the story - the plot - was good; probably the best story of the series. I can’t wait for the next story to arrive.
There was a preview for Hansel and Gretel that was very gory - not for little kids (or really anyone for that matter). There were a couple of curse-words (f-bomb makes its first series appearance), but nothing gratuitous. At nearly 2:30:00, it is on the edge of long – so if you’re a frequent visitor to the restroom, you may want to skip the large soda or water.
I may go see it again - after Lincoln, of course.

The film, "Skyfall", of course, was brilliant. The IMAX experience, not so much. What is IMAX, but a gigantic screen where they have shoved the audience right up against it. I can not see picture from the front, and they shouldn't even be allowed to sell tickets that close. My experience was horrible. I left with a headache and a bad mood. I want the $60-something I spent, to show my friends a good time, back. I'll wait and catch it again at the crappy $1 movies theatre, and sneak in some good wine.

SKYFALL was good but not 4 stars, I give it 3 stars, go see it by all means but no need to rush, see it in IMAX.
Skyfall has been deemed by many to be the "best Bond yet." But not so fast. Although this twenty-third film in the Bond series is a very good movie, let's not get carried away. This is Daniel Craig's third Bond film. He hit a high with Casino Royale but was a letdown in Quantum of Solace. It seems the makers of these movies are still trying to decide exactly who Craig's James Bond is.
In the end it all comes down to how easily you accept Craig as Bond and how much you appreciate his interpretation of the role as defined by director Sam Mendes. This may be his best Bond film yet but you anticipate the best is yet to be.

The new Bond commemorates 50 years of Bond films, and what a way to celebrate. Borrowing from old and bringing in new, Bond is at his most bold and gripping. This film also proves without a doubt that James Bond isn't going anywhere.There's really a lot to love here, for the more seasoned Bond fan there's a lot of lore and pretty things to look at, for the newer fans of the franchise, Bond proves he can keep up with the new kids, and at times outpace them. A quick word on the villain Javier Bardem, wasn't anything like what I was expecting but I am not disappointed in the slightest, creepy, off putting, funny at times, and even relatable. This really is one of the best Bond's ever and I highly suggest everyone go see it.
