Bond movie. This one is more of a character study than even Casino Royale. The acting was outstanding especially by Javiar Bardem and Judi Dench. I think it's one of the best movies of the year. However if you are looking for wall-to-wall action you are going to be sorely disappointed.

Standard Bond stuff you've seen before with more gasoline explosions and shooting. Take a pass and save your money unless you're into ear splitting explosions and "not to be believed stunts".

I have been a Bond fan for over 30 years. This is definitely a must see! They do a great job tying in some of the old information with the new plot!

The bond film still contains the very dramatic and also very beautiful opening sequence with Adele singing. Not having the opening sequence is like not having a James Bond film at all, it is very expected. In Skyfall we are presented with a very mortal Bond, which gives him a more human characteristic than before. Daniel Craig's acting also helps us believe Bond's pain and also makes us sentimental. Cinematography is immaculate and gives the settings punch. The film takes you to exotic locations and won't make you as dizzy with fast cut scenes like Quantum of Solace did. With the film running over 2 hours, you do get your money's worth in content. Slight humor here and there was present and at some points the movie slowed down quite a bit, but only to pick up pace to an intense action scenes where the audience prays for Bond to win. The ending is very dramatic with lots of explosions and not typical of a Bond ending. Both fans, and regular audiences will love this film.

This film has most of what you would expect of a Bond film in terms of action, gadgets, women, exotic locations, etc. It also has a deeper, more personal plot than any other Bond film that I have seen. Also, there are a number of references to classic films and to some of the earlier Bond concepts that are fun, but do not detract from the storyline. I totally enjoyed the film.
