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.

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.

SKYFALL was good but not 4 stars, I give it 3 stars, go see it by all means but no need to rush, see it in IMAX.
Skyfall has been deemed by many to be the "best Bond yet." But not so fast. Although this twenty-third film in the Bond series is a very good movie, let's not get carried away. This is Daniel Craig's third Bond film. He hit a high with Casino Royale but was a letdown in Quantum of Solace. It seems the makers of these movies are still trying to decide exactly who Craig's James Bond is.
In the end it all comes down to how easily you accept Craig as Bond and how much you appreciate his interpretation of the role as defined by director Sam Mendes. This may be his best Bond film yet but you anticipate the best is yet to be.

I absolutely loved this movie. I'd say about an hour into it you begin to get distracted but not for long! The ending tied in PERFECTLY with the other Bond movies. If you're a fan, you will definitely appreciate it. I love all the Bond films, but this one left me teary eyed WITH EXCITEMENT! Loved it! A def must see!

I enjoy this Bond movie like the others with Craig, except Quantum of solice ( plot was a little to thin for me).
I thought Skyfall had a good blend of action, grit and storyline. movie kept my interest peaked, and seamed more plausable. Also I believe the movie warrants a Imax experiance.
