Great Bon movie. Nice to see it go back to basics and not be so sci-fi. I got lost on the last 5+ Bond movies and am a beliver again.

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 was also one scene in particular, a train crash in tunnel that looked real cheesy. I also didnt care for the main bad guy, could have found someone better.
The Plus: Everything else, with the little bit of negative I wrote above, this was really a great movie, one of my favorite Bond movies. I think what made this movie better in my opinion is the fact that they didnt get carried away with far fetch gadgets and chase scenes, they took it back a notch to old school, where you can believe it more. I also like the way they introduce us to a whole new reboot of the Bond characters, which I wont reveal as I dont want to give away to much of the movie itself. Daniel Craig did a great job as Bond, and the story itself was good. I would give this 3 1/2 stars out of 4 myself, enjoy :)

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.

I have seen every Bond move to date and Craig is a real emulation to James Bond. He brings a human to a character that had become more of a cartoon in previous Bond films. We noticed the welcome deference in Casino Royal that we had a James Bond that had warm blood running and heart. Skyfall was great take on it 50th. with nostalgia of the Sean Connery days but with years clocked for now. Fun and entertaining during the entire film. I’ll be adding this to my collection and it will stand out as being the start of the second generation fifty and beyond.

Skyfall has been totally overhyped. When a movie is restructured back to a more realistic and believable character, the plot and the stunts needs to be believable. This isn't. From the beginning when Bond is shot on the top of a moving train, falls into water from at least a hundred feet unconscious, and lives, the movie requires suspension of disbelief after suspension of disbelief.
The Villain walks around in a phony blonde wig and assuming you can accept his sole goal is to murder M, you have to accept that all of the many many henchmen that support him are willing to sacrifice their lives for nothing but the goal of killing her as well. That doesn't work for me. It also doesn't work that the best way to protect the old woman who is running the most sophisticated spy network in the World next to the CIA is to go to the most isolated place in the United Kingdom with nothing but some dynamite, gasoline, a shotgun and Bond. It just doesn't work.
