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!

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.

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

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!

I have high expectations of Bond, especially since rebooting the franchise with Daniel Craig. Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace both delivered powerful Bond presence. Skyfall should be renamed SkyFAIL. It is solemn, morose, lacks depth in plot, and is heavily plot driven with little action. So heavy plot with a lacking plot makes for a strange experience. I just couldn't quite seem to figure out how this fit in with the serial of the new reboot. It seemed to stand alone and have no purpose. It's the having no purpose part I did not like, other than the fact it transitions us to a new MI6. A New M. A New Q. Aside Javier Bardem's brilliant performance, at its core the film still misses its shot somewhere. It simply fails to deliver powerful Bond presence. Let's hope the new franchise does not continue forward like this. We need another Bond film very soon to make up for this loss.
