James Bond's Skyfall was kinda like those X-men, Batman or Hanibal origin franchise movies where at some point you get a historic perspective about the character. Hardcore Bond fans like myself love it because we always wondering how a character came to be but newbies probably found it a bit too cerebral for their tastes. Craig is a good bond whereas Roger Moore was too spoofy and un-athletic to pull it off. What I thought was deeper still is that Bond hinted at being bi-sexual or at least try-sexual when he was tied to that chair. Thiink that scene will ever happen? Give new mean to double-Oh. lol

Yeah, this one sucked. Watch it on blu ray or when it comes to cable. Don't waste 2 1/2 hours at the movies. My recommendation - if you want to see good Bond movie, watch any of the 20+ existing Bond movies. They are ALL better! I really don't understand why this movie had to be 2 1/2 hours. They could've made it more exciting and fast-paced and fit it into 1 1/2 hours tops. Instead they added A LOT of unnecessary scenes that took away from the story and the action. Here is how you can save $11.50: skip it entirely.

Fascinating Bond movie which they showed and hinted many other themes from other Bond movies. Also, they actually showed more history about who and where Bond came from. It look like the franchise is about to start a whole new series and they might get very serious about it. Bardem as always makes an intriguing bad guy which he plays a bisexual-transgender man! Lastly, they didn't show much on the Bond women especially when I know one of them! But I' am glad to see it is getting great views and making a huge splash at the box office. I recommend seeing the movie especially if you are a Bond fan! I 'am not gong to say it but they bring out a special car that all Bond fans will cheer to see!

Went to this Movie today and as compared to the other BOND Movies, this is among the worst. This James Bond is too old, Daniel Craig SUCKS, never did like him. Bring back Pierce Bronson.
No gadgets except for a 9mm pistol that is hand encrypted and a 1" Transmitting GPS Detector. Pathetic by BOND Standards.
There were 3 chase scenes and a crazy ex-agent gone irrate at M that could have been a bit more dramatic. He was a gay vilan. I dont know, Im not going to buy the Video thats for sure.
Anyway, if there is another flick premiering, go see the other movie.
The franchise is out of their freaking minds, just heard on Jimmy Kimmel, that Daniel has signed on for 3 more.
BTW, this premier was crowded and they showed their verbal disapprovement as well.
My true opinion, this BOND Sucks, too old and should not take off his shirt, he's too dame old for any naked love scenes "Please spare us", do some freaking editing man.

Had to agree with a previous post. Judy Dench as the new bond girl was a real let down although contemplating the fate bond was about to face at the hands of Javier Bardem was pretty scary. ( thinking,bedposts,baby oil, ...)
Give me the gadgets, girls, guns and good old innuendos any day.
