2.75 out of 5 Stars for me. Enjoyed it. The setting of this double notch MI6Flick is today. There is tech involved, but this is one of the most un-tech Bond movies thus far. There's even a minimum of adult oriented content. If it wasn't Bond, it would be just another story weave of intrigue, car chase and action...sorta. The producers clearly decided to get rid of anything "Old-Bond"- Skyfall is clearly new Bond and post the Ian Fleming books.
I'd say it's an interim story refit. Next one(s) will hopefully be..more within the new groove this film set up.

The plop was fine but since it was a long movie there were moments where I fell asleep...great action movie but wish it had less sentimental sections...

our new 007 is not polished like the old ones, hes not that pretty boy that we are used to, he comes across as more believable , hard core . his character made my heart race and root for him. never got that pulled in with the other bonds. fast paced, of course and miss moneypenny never looked THIS good, wow. the fireworks would make any pyromaniac proud, 4th of july in scotland, who would have thought?

Right from the beginning I felt like I was missing something about our hero Bond, what happened to him. The action was none stop intense, I had to remind myself to breath. As always, intense situations, oh those fears of heights. It is another Bond movie that has broken away into its own format, yet there are always reminders of the past. Great movie, but it will take about three viewings before I have seen everything that is going on. Great action movie for the kids as well. If you love Bond, this is another must see!

Did not know what Skyfall was until I saw it. Not a lot of high tech gadgits. British Intellegence, They must be on a budget now
