Very well done, concise movie as action thrillers go. Good acting all around.
From Bond movie perspective sad to see villain only about revenge and not world domination or money. I feel this one more about M than Bond or villain. Interesting to see evolution of Moneypenny. Set stage for next one which I hope will bring more devious villain.

The movie was great, Daniel Craig is at least as good or better than Sean Connery, and I never thought I would say that. Skyfall has so many twists and turns too it, it could be about a snake. Movie as I said was great, I just have one question, is "M", Judy Dench actually Bonds mother or aunt? Questions, questions, guess I will have to see the next one to find out for sure.
As for the Imax part, eh, not so much. Screen wasn't anywhere near as big as many I have have seen, but speakers and sound we okay, just not worth the 4 bucks extra each, save your money that way and just go see it!

Typical Bond opener, the bench mark for all secret agent movies, I thought this segment is more edgy, darker-Bond's shows vulnerability,admittedly Bond comfronts aging, fighting younger and more technology savvy crooks. Killing off characters and introductions of new characters are normal after a few releases so you might try to guess which character will die in this current chapter. As for the Bond character itself, Daniel Craig is rumored to quit after this chapter and a new Bond is destine to appear in 2014. In my humble opinion Daniel Craig is the best Bond in its 50 year history. No so pretty, rough around the edge and a natural warrior. Unlike other Bond flicks, this one lacked product introductions-Aston Martin decided to back away and Jaguar reintroduced into the series.......

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.

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.
