This is Bond like you've never seen him, almost Freudian in his vulnerability. And a dynamite Daniel Craig, never better in the role, nails...

With a powerful jolt, 007 feels relevant again, with serious questions about espionage vs. cyber hacking amid the fun.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Though a notch below "Royale," Skyfall follows that reboot's lead, making a now 50-year-old icon as cool as when he began.

By Mick LaSalle
Skyfall is a different kind of Bond movie, one that works just fine on its own terms, but a steady diet of this might kill the franchise....

The negative: There are a few scenes in this movie that we've seen before in movies, for example, fight scene in a train going into tunnels, motorcycle chase on rooftop, been there, done that. There...

I enjoyed SkyFall very much!

By NancyFleur
It was very exciting, one of those movies where you can just sit back and be entertained. I like Daniel Craig very much. The scenery was great....

Everything To Expect In Bond...Very Entertaining.

By Alon Patterson
What's to say about a decades old franchise like Bond? It has become a brand with EXTREME quality control and as such, NEVER diverts from either its formula or its product quality in order to ensure...

Tired boring loud repetitive

By ajfincke
I found the movie uninspiring. I did however agree with the plot line that Judi Dench and Daniel Craig should be put out to pasture! And why is he being sent out with a little gun and a car from the...

Not Your Typical...

By jbinminot
Bond movie. This one is more of a character study than even Casino Royale. The acting was outstanding especially by Javiar Bardem and Judi Dench. I think it's one of the best movies of the year....

Could have used a better script

By Cavtrooper36
Standard Bond stuff you've seen before with more gasoline explosions and shooting. Take a pass and save your money unless you're into ear splitting explosions and "not to be believed stunts"....

A mortal Bond, uplifted by the efforts of all of us

The bond film still contains the very dramatic and also very beautiful opening sequence with Adele singing. Not having the opening sequence is like not having a James Bond film at all, it is very...

Skyfall

By JimLockard
This film has most of what you would expect of a Bond film in terms of action, gadgets, women, exotic locations, etc. It also has a deeper, more personal plot than any other Bond film that I have...

The worst 007 ever

By guer_v
Not only was this the worst in my memory, but also least James Bond -like of them all. Why do we like James Bond? He kicks ass, beds women, has cool toys, all the while avoids sleeping, eating,...
