The graphics were spectacular. Mind-blowing sequences throughout the movie. However, I would have liked James Bond was more than a superhero, fighting machine. I think the film could have used some romance and better development of the characters.

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.

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.

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 :)

I JUST HAD TO SEE THIS MOVIE! MY SON WHO IS 12 HAS BEEN WATCHING BOND FOR YEARS STARTING WITH THE ORIGINAL OF COURSE, SEAN HIMSELF. I RECALL HEARING "SKYFALL" ON THE RADIO FOR THE FIRST TIME WHEN MY SON SAID "LISTEN TO THIS MOM, THIS HAS TO BE A SONG FOR A JAMES BOND MOVIE"! WE GOOGLED IT AS SOON AS WE GOT HOME AND SURE ENOUGH HE WAS RIGHT- TOTALLY BLEW MY MIND!
WITH THAT SAID, I JUST HAD TO TAKE HIM TO SEE THIS PARTICULAR ONE IN THE MOVIE THEATRE, AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT WE DID ON NEW YEARS DAY.
WE BOTH ENJOYED IT! I LOVED THE WAY THEY TIED THE NEW AGE TECHNOLOGY IN WHILE KEEPING SPECIFIC DETAILS OLD FASHION. THEN HOW EXCITED WERE WE TO SEE THE ASTON MARTIN, OH MY!
HIS FAVORITE PART WAS THE CHASE THRU THE TRAIN STATION, AND MINE WAS THAT THEY PULLED THE ENTIRE STORY LINE AND "BOND ERA" TOGETHER VERY NICELY.
THE ONE THING I MISSED WAS BONDS USUSAL FEMALE COUNTERPART- I THINK MY SON DID TOO- LOL
OH YEAH AND WE BOTH PUT DANILE CRAIG A RUNNING 2ND WITH ROGER MOORE!
