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.

The Bond movie Skyfall is a well directed update to the franchise, with well chosen bits of nostalgia. Javier Bardem is sensational in this one. Sam Mendes brings a new and fresh perspective to the whole action genre with a lot of brainpower.
Not to be missed!

I have been excited to see the latest Bond movie and it was not a disappointment. Even though it is listed at almost 2.5 hours, I didn't feel uncomfortable as the action was sufficient to keep me interested.
I was happy to see the re-introduction of the Q branch and they didn't go overboard with gadgets which also made me happy. There was a nod to the Sean Connery Bond which was somewhat nostalgic but they put it out of our minds in typical Bond fashion.
The acting was very good and the locations shots were inspiring. The pace of the film was just right for me.
I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in Bond or action. The violence and sexual overtones make this move a PG-13 movie in my view.
I look forward to the next Bond

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.
