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.

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.

From start to finish, the action never stops in this latest Bond thriller. Daniel Craig is THE Bond of our time with a performance that is honest, gritty and entirely believable. Despite my dismay at having a gay villain (too many people already believe gays are evil and this won't help) Javier Badem's portrayal of a twisted former agent gone crazy after being 'given up' to be tortured for months as a political pawn is chilling and heart wrenching all at once. Keeping with tradition, Bond travels to several exotic locales leaving me with an overwhelming desire to book passage to Shang Hai asap. With lots of nods to the original Bond films from the 60's, this film has something for fans of all ages.

I really enjoyed this latest Bond movie. I wasn't sure what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. Most of us in the theater had similar reactions to certain plot points - we cheered at the same time.
It is difficult to review it without giving anything away, so I'll just say that if you are a Bond fan, and a Daniel Craig fan, you will enjoy this movie. Daniel Craig is quickly becoming my favorite Bond! And he doesn't even get naked in this one! Oops! I just gave something away! But ladies, there is plenty of Daniel to enjoy, don't worry.
Go and see it!
