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.

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.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this film. IMAX and Skyfall are a match made in heaven. Great action and chase scenes. Craig makes a perfect contemporary Bond. Cinematography, characters, sound, directing all contributed to an entertaining and fun experience. Highly recommend.
