Incredible movie from the first 5 minutes until the end. Incredible sound and special effects. I don't think it would have been as amazing if I didn't see it in the IMAX theater!! Loved Craig as Bond....SEXY!! The villian was perfect, and of course "M"!!! I fell in love with "Q" and his addition to the crew. Remarkable plot throughout and I was on the edge of my seat the whole movie!

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!

The film, "Skyfall", of course, was brilliant. The IMAX experience, not so much. What is IMAX, but a gigantic screen where they have shoved the audience right up against it. I can not see picture from the front, and they shouldn't even be allowed to sell tickets that close. My experience was horrible. I left with a headache and a bad mood. I want the $60-something I spent, to show my friends a good time, back. I'll wait and catch it again at the crappy $1 movies theatre, and sneak in some good wine.

Of course, Daniel Craig is amazing, but what a script! This movie brings together so many pieces, and sets the Bond movies up for a fantastic future. 007 is really back to being the classy spy with a license to kill that Ian Fleming created.

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
