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.

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.
