SKYFALL is a "must see" film for anyone who ever had a desire to know "Bond, James Bond"
Daniel Craig now defines Bond as Ian Fleming may have envisioned him, "Flawed Perfection".
Sam Mendes directs the action in suburb fashion, and the protagonist, well, you must go to see the film to discover this brilliant performance. It is one of those movie I will see again, in theater, and certainly add to my collection later.

...this series just gets better with age.
Daniel Craig, beautiful cars, beautiful women, beautiful cinematography, an amazing score, great acting, and most importantly... A PLOT!
This big budget movie delivers on every penny with spectacular settings and visuals. Skyfall modernizes the Bond experience to be relevant to our age of digital espionage. Never fear... there's no lack of high flying stunts and massive explosions.
Throw in a plot not riddled with massive holes, and you end up with a movie going experience the excites the senses and leaves the entire audience clapping at the conclusion. Go see this movie!

Skyfall was delayed for quite a while due to legal complications but it is worth the wait. Sam Mendes does an outstanding job as director balancing great action sequences with effective character development.
Daniel Craig continues to wear the Bond mantle extremely well - although age is creeping up on both of them.
Javier Badem is destined to enter the pantheon of best Bond villians ever.

I realize that this is just my opinion but I though that this film was amazing. It brings the action as any Bond film does but it was the acting, the story, the emotions the actors portrayed in their characters that made this film incredible. Since this is the 50th anniversary Bond film they really gave the Bond fans a nod to the history. From the introduction of classic characters, gadgets, and the car. They really did a fantastic job. I still prefer Casino Royal but this was a close second. and I think that with time it may be my favorite one yet! A must see for any Bond fan or avid movie goer.

Once again Daniel Craig shows he has what it takes to play in an action movie, however parts of his portrayal of an aging Bond seemed a little forced. In this installation we see a different Bond than we have seen before, a more vulnerable man who is both injured and showing his age.
While the action scenes were for the most part well done, whoever the producers used as a technical consultant should be ashamed of the absolute crap they put in this movie. For a new take on the series where in the previous two with Craig that they have focused on making the movies more reality based, the tech aspects of this film were absolutely stupid and detracted from the movie, keeping it from being an A and lowering it to an overall B- since it played such a pivotal role in several key scenes. Next time the producers need to get a tech advisor who knows what the hell they are doing and make it realistic instead of laughable to those of us who know better, or even any grade school student.
