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 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.

If you are a fan of Casino Royal then you will enjoy this movie! Great action sequences which is a given since its a Bond movie. Looking forward to more Bond movies after this one.

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.

Can't decide which was better but who cares! One of the best movies I've seen this year and without a doubt one of the best Bond movies ever. Doesn't matter if you like Bond movies or not, this was simply extremely well done, entertaining, with great performances from great actors, with a great script.
