Ok, if you are a Bond fan it's a must see. I would rate this as one of the best Bond movies of all time and I have seen them all. Of course there is non stop action, but the plot is tight and pushes and pulls you just right. What I like the most is that there is alot of real old school stunts instead of computer generated images. The director blended technology with real grit to achieve a blend that would appease the original Bond fans and the newbys. IMAX is the way to go and I will watch this film many times.

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.

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.
