Surprising! A Near Classic for Craig

More so than The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall was THE film I wanted to see this year. Given the talent in front of and behind the camera, my expectations were high. The film met all of them! Craig is magnetic as Bond and displays the wit, charm and emotion that was absent from Quantum of Solace. Harris and Marhloe are great as Bond girls but the true female at the center of the action is Dame Judi Dench as M. She's the woman that Bond must focus all his energies on. I can't say enough about Bardem as Silva. He doesn't get much screen time but while he's there, you can't take your eyes off him. He's a man on a mission and seems to be one step ahead of British Intelligence. The action is great, the locales are used to great use (the Shanghai scenes are a must) and I can't say enough about the climax. It's totally "un-Bond" but it works! Even if you aren't a fan of the series, Skyfall is thoroughly entertaining. Go see it.

I've seen most of the Bond films -- I"m not a huge fan of the blow 'em up action genres, but I have enjoyed Bond in the past. He had style -- usually suave, with a twinkle in his eye, always in control, never ruffled. This Bond is dour, humorless, without personality. And the movie is entirely predictable. Barely a plot, it's just a bunch of ways to kill Bond strung together -- except how excited can we get about that -- we KNOW he's not really going to die. This round, they actually ran out of novel way to kill him -- they had to drown him twice! Good visuals, good action sequences, but not very many of them -- there was ALOT of talking in this movie -- just endless expositional talking. Some beautiful women, but no sexiness. The whole movie just seemed forced.

Well worth it, a must see on the big screen. I love all Bond movies The acting was excellent, cinematography was fantastic. It was the most different Bond yet. Not a lot of Bond girl moments

Great movie. Action scenes could've been better, but other than that, an awesome movie. Acting, directing and plot were really good. A Must Go. I don't think this would be a spoiler, but get ready for one of the best opening credits :)

A great return to the Bond movies of old. Great action, wonderful crazed villain, sexy ladies without explicit sex, and tongue frequently planted firmly in cheek. I also noted homage to a number of other thriller movies, from The French Connection, to Speed, to Die Hard, to Home Alone(!!), and some very definite references to the Bond movies of old. Good for all ages. If you're a Bond fan, you already know it's a "can't miss". If not, this could well change your mind. Go see it.
