I really enjoyed the latest installment of the Bond films. Much more a character-based drama than previous Bond films have been, and it is not short on action either.
Great tributes/nods to previous films in the franchise and a fabulous introduction to old covers (Q, among others)!
The movie has a great pacing, shown by the feeling that it ends too quickly, even though you spent 2.5 hours watching the screen.

I enjoy this Bond movie like the others with Craig, except Quantum of solice ( plot was a little to thin for me).
I thought Skyfall had a good blend of action, grit and storyline. movie kept my interest peaked, and seamed more plausable. Also I believe the movie warrants a Imax experiance.

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.

As with Connery's "Goldfinger," and Moore's "The Spy Who Loved Me," Daniel Craig smashes one in a very big and British way in Skyfall! The producers, Eon Productions, who are celebrating 50 years of giving us England's arguably "greatest contribution to Western civilization besides afternoon tea" (Hugo Drax in "Moonraker"), have stated that this film does not carry on the Quantum storyline from the previous 2 films, and, just as "Goldfinger" and "Spy" also did, accomplished its mission with ripping success. The film is a winner on many fronts: enough traditional Bond tie-ins to keep baby boomer like me happy, enough action to keep the Ciemark goers from boredom, but most importantly, the film is so well acted by a brilliantly casted team . Great writing, action, and realistic effects make for a very entertaining outing.
Oh, and there is that Aston Martin DB5, this time of correct RHD specification (I was one of those malcontents with the LHD car in "Casino Royale." GO SEE!
