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.

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.

Bond movies are always ridiculous, but this one is also truly thrilling and engaging. And the IMAX is so, so worth the extra dollars, you literally get pulled into the action. One complaint -- maybe a tad long towards the end. Otherwise, a great, entertaining movie.

Perhaps the best film in the franchise, Skyfall builds upon the character of Bond as both an ex-commando and a man with an Eton and Cambridge education--comfortable and competent in many settings,.
Plenty of action but placed to enhance rather than smother the plot or compensate for a non-existent one.

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.
