Never have I seen a more entertaining bond movie. They brought back the old bond characters with a twist. They even bring back some old favorite gadgets for the end of the movie. You are always guessing where they'll take you scene to scene so it makes the movie quite a thrill ride. It's a must see.

I think the directors have forgotten the reason we come to see 007 is for his cool gadets, his ability to seduce the woman and lets not forget his cars full of surprises. Bourne Identity James bond is not and should try to be. There was more action and gadets in spy kids. I tried to get my oldest son excited to about 007 the way my Dad and I use too. How will he ever escape? What new toy will get him out of danager. The 007 franchise is not only losing me but my 17 year was completely let down and could believe this was a movie I would bring him too.

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!

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

After enduring over 30 minutes of pre-movie trailers and promotions, Skyfall finally got moving. It's plot is good, but strung out. Each chase scene is too long and supported by repetitive music that cues you into believing the action is as intense as the orchestra's score. The Bond gimmicks are gone, leaving Daniel Craig on his own; this creates a Bond that is less reliant on the tools of his trade and more on his personal skills. In lieu of the typical Bond stuff, the movie returns to Bond themes of yesteryear, which are amusing at first, but a bit stretched as the movie reaches its end. The returns to the old Bond are all that makes this movie a Bond movie at all.
This is an introduction to a new Bond. I like what this movie promises, but I wish for the Bond gimmicks to return, along with a more Bond-ish villain with better development. This is a movie that is entertaining and stands well on its own; it's worth seeing. Just show up 20 minutes late.
