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.......

Movie was awesome! It started with a bang and was non-stop action. Several nods to classic Bond movies. It's a must see for any Bond fan!!

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.

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.
