How is this movie content/parental concern-wise? It deserved the PG-13 rating it received. Going into Skyfall I was a bit nervous about all the sex scenes and opening music sequence that Bond movies always have. The sex scenes were basically what you see in the trailers with just a few more seconds of footage. The opening musical credit sequence also was not that bad, you definitely don't see as much as in other Bond movies. There were a few outlines of obviously naked women, but they were brief and not that detailed.
As Far as violence is concerned, it was PG-13 spy violence with lots of gunshots and punching and explosions etc. Nothing too graphic here. (No naked torture scenes like in Casino Royale).
And there was one "F-word" which was actually not that clearly uttered. Other than that, the rest of the swearing was far below normal PG-13 par.
Thanks for reading, now go enjoy another awesome Bond movie!

Easily the most "realistic" of all the Bond movies. Lots of action and seduction, sure, but we see more of Bond's inner conflict and personal struggle as well. The plot is plausible and the outcomes felt real and logical. Enjoyable on many levels.

The film, "Skyfall", of course, was brilliant. The IMAX experience, not so much. What is IMAX, but a gigantic screen where they have shoved the audience right up against it. I can not see picture from the front, and they shouldn't even be allowed to sell tickets that close. My experience was horrible. I left with a headache and a bad mood. I want the $60-something I spent, to show my friends a good time, back. I'll wait and catch it again at the crappy $1 movies theatre, and sneak in some good wine.

Worth every nickel. IMAX – worth the additional cost.
The opening credits were really unique and I really liked them. Action scenes were wicked - made me squirm in my seat. Characters were excellent and well developed – villains and heroes. Even the story - the plot - was good; probably the best story of the series. I can’t wait for the next story to arrive.
There was a preview for Hansel and Gretel that was very gory - not for little kids (or really anyone for that matter). There were a couple of curse-words (f-bomb makes its first series appearance), but nothing gratuitous. At nearly 2:30:00, it is on the edge of long – so if you’re a frequent visitor to the restroom, you may want to skip the large soda or water.
I may go see it again - after Lincoln, of course.
