Saw the IMAX Midnight release. The best opening sequence of all the Bond films. My knuckles were white from gripping the armrest. Heavy nods to the entire franchise were given. Loved every minute

Very well done, concise movie as action thrillers go. Good acting all around.
From Bond movie perspective sad to see villain only about revenge and not world domination or money. I feel this one more about M than Bond or villain. Interesting to see evolution of Moneypenny. Set stage for next one which I hope will bring more devious villain.

The movie was great, Daniel Craig is at least as good or better than Sean Connery, and I never thought I would say that. Skyfall has so many twists and turns too it, it could be about a snake. Movie as I said was great, I just have one question, is "M", Judy Dench actually Bonds mother or aunt? Questions, questions, guess I will have to see the next one to find out for sure.
As for the Imax part, eh, not so much. Screen wasn't anywhere near as big as many I have have seen, but speakers and sound we okay, just not worth the 4 bucks extra each, save your money that way and just go see it!

So the IMAX screen was incredible! I do not understand why the gun barrel sequence was placed where it was but, ok. The entire movie seemed like an effort to refresh the Jame Bond brand. Although I about went deaf during the movie because the theatre I was at had the volume turned up way past the too loud marker and the popcorn was burnt and had that sickening smell to it. I can not blame the movie for the pitfalls. I plan to try it again somewhere else.

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!
