Good movie, bad Bond movie

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.

Skyfall is great

This Bond movie is probably the best, with the most complex plot, of this genre. Nice plot twists and surprises that enhance the overall enjoyment of the experience. There are additional points that give the movie much more depth than many of the Bond movies.

Non-stop action!

From start to finish, the action never stops in this latest Bond thriller. Daniel Craig is THE Bond of our time with a performance that is honest, gritty and entirely believable. Despite my dismay at having a gay villain (too many people already believe gays are evil and this won't help) Javier Badem's portrayal of a twisted former agent gone crazy after being 'given up' to be tortured for months as a political pawn is chilling and heart wrenching all at once. Keeping with tradition, Bond travels to several exotic locales leaving me with an overwhelming desire to book passage to Shang Hai asap. With lots of nods to the original Bond films from the 60's, this film has something for fans of all ages.

50 years of Bond

By Amado Royola
Written November 10, 2012
Typical Bond opener, the bench mark for all secret agent movies, I thought this segment is more edgy, darker-Bond's shows vulnerability,admittedly Bond comfronts aging, fighting younger and more technology savvy crooks. Killing off characters and introductions of new characters are normal after a few releases so you might try to guess which character will die in this current chapter. As for the Bond character itself, Daniel Craig is rumored to quit after this chapter and a new Bond is destine to appear in 2014. In my humble opinion Daniel Craig is the best Bond in its 50 year history. No so pretty, rough around the edge and a natural warrior. Unlike other Bond flicks, this one lacked product introductions-Aston Martin decided to back away and Jaguar reintroduced into the series.......

IMAX at Regal Manassas, VA Sucks!

By MrClod
Written November 12, 2012
The movie was great, but really no difference watching on full screen vs IMAX. The price of the IMAX at this location is OVERRATED AND NOT WORTH THE EXTRA CASH. Want IMAX? go elsewhere.
