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.

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.

Worth every nickel. IMAX – worth the additional cost.
The opening credits were really unique and I really liked them. Action scenes were wicked - made me squirm in my seat. Characters were excellent and well developed – villains and heroes. Even the story - the plot - was good; probably the best story of the series. I can’t wait for the next story to arrive.
There was a preview for Hansel and Gretel that was very gory - not for little kids (or really anyone for that matter). There were a couple of curse-words (f-bomb makes its first series appearance), but nothing gratuitous. At nearly 2:30:00, it is on the edge of long – so if you’re a frequent visitor to the restroom, you may want to skip the large soda or water.
I may go see it again - after Lincoln, of course.

As a huge Bond fan, I was worried that Skyfall may not lived to my higher expectations. Well I'm proud to say that I was wrong because it was certainly entertaining as I expected to see in a Bond film. The cast led by Craig and Bardem were sensational and Sam Mendes did a tremendous job of directing the film especially the beautiful shots of the exotic locales shown in the film. If you haven't seen Skyfall yet, what are you waiting for and GO SEE SKYFALL RIGHT THIS MOMENT!!!!

I've seen every Bond film made starting with Dr. No in 1962 and I think this movie, Skyfall, is the best Bond film ever. There are the usual things you expect to see in a Bond movie, women, clichés and action scenes, but the best part of this film is the excellent way they tied the old Bond films into the new and laid the groundwork for the next 23 Bond movies to be just as successful. Whether you've been to every Bond film made like me or this is your first you won't be disappointed.
