Bond movies are just not the same without all the gadgets! Bond used to be like McGiver on steroids but skyfall fell short for me. Got boring towards the end. Its a rental. Javier Bardem though, was exceptional as Silva. A villan with a sense of humor. Great acting!

Let me begin by saying that I've pretty much enjoyed every Bond movie I've ever seen.
Skyfall is a complete stinker. It's a campy montage of Bond movies past. Weak female characters (i.e., none of them can shoot well; none of them are mysterious/intriguing; each one's contribution to the "plot" is their weakness/failures/etc.).
The plot was ridiculous...I'm all for the suspension of disbelief when it comes to Bond movies, but this was just beyond absurd. Flat performance by Daniel Craig. Literally, the best part of the movie was Adele's "Skyfall" during the opening credits. Even though this will undoubtedly be a box-office smash, this is easily the worst, most forgettable Bond movie I've ever seen.
Don't go. It will just make you angry.

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.

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.

One of the reasons I always like the 007 series is that they are just corny enough to be fun.
This one isn't quite there as it tries to take itself a bit too serious, but I'm still glad that I saw it.
