The latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, is a must-see. It has some great action sequences, beautiful Bond babes, a charismatic villain, and, of course, Daniel Craig back as Bond. Director Sam Mendes has a striking visual style, as he adds his own stamp to the film. And there are some great nods to past Bond films that fans will enjoy, and the film itself, without giving anything away, sets the stage for future Bond films as well. It is amazing that a film series that's been around for 50 years, is still going strong, as Skyfall proves. The best Bond film ever, as some have proclaimed? Probably not, but it's definately up there.

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.
