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.

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!

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.
