One of my favorite Bond movies - for a number of reasons.

To begin with, I loved the title song by Adele as well as the video and the point of the story where the song was placed - a perfect start.

I also loved the many great locations where the movie was shot. The film was visually very attractive (and sometimes also really unusual) in my opinion.

I also loved Daniel Craig and the way he portrayed Bond in this one, also his conversations with Q (who was just great) about age and other issues. Hilarious and very sweet. But Craig's performance was not even the most fascinating one: Javier Bardem was an absolutely great villain. This was the first time I saw him in a movie - and he WAS the villain, he was so repulsive and mean that I did not trust my eyes when I watched him in an interview later, looking extremely handsome and talking and smiling like the most pleasant person in the world. That's what I call an actor :)

Berenice Marlohe was an interesting Bond girl and Judi Dench was great as always, as well as Ralph Fiennes.

All in all, great entertainment, a scary villain and beautiful visual impressions.

A film that both pays tribute to the past, re-casting some classic characters from the franchise and winking at past continuity, while simultaneously treating Bond as a pill-popping, alcoholic man haunted by demons, just Casino Royale had some wonderfully done. The franchise is celebrating its 50th anniversary by looking back and looking forward, and by allowing its lead to feel old and passé, so that he can reaffirm his relevance for the next half-century. While there are some great locations and action set pieces, Skyfall actually feels very down to Earth, gritty and intimate. A lot of the action takes place in Britain. The stakes have an international dimension, but are more personal. And if there's a Bond girl here, it's Judi Dench's M. She's never had this big a role before, and it's entirely worth it. It's probably no surprise that Javier Bardem makes a cool Bond villain - he and Craig have plenty of chemistry - and Sam Mendes brings his visual style to bear and makes Skyfall one of the most interesting Bond films to outright analyze. If I'm keeping this short, it's because I don't want to spoil anyone who hasn't yet seen it. This one is important to the future of the franchise, in terms of both character development and incidents.

Bond without being Bond. Beautifully coloured frames, action that is slow enough to follow, thematic content. There's a lot to love in this Bond instalment. It's both a big leap forward for the franchise, and a bit of a sidestep incorporating more modern action elements that cast an appropriate thematic and occasionally visual shadow over the proceedings. Roger Deakins is phenomenal as the film's DOP, and the story is one of the most coherent in decades.

4 stars.

I love most Bond films and this is no exception. Daniel Craig is possibly my fave Bond to date. Charming, charismatic ... interesting plot too.
I loved the scenery too. London looked good and so did "Scotland". Visually stunning.

First half is very bondish and reminds me of why I love this series. Second half has it's ups and downs, and I totally agree with the criticism of the "home alone" scene. The whole "skyfall" story also feels half-assed. In the end it's a decent bond movie.

I've never been much of a fan of the Bond movies and this film didn't change that at all. Visually beautiful, good acting but felt kind of average and predictible. The only shocking thing in the whole movie was spoiler .

Skyfall isn't the Best.Bond.Ever., but it certainly puts the franchise back on the right path. If we can get more of this, and no more Bourne copycats (Quantum of Solace), then there will be some great days ahead for Bond. Sometimes the old ways really are the best.

After the major misstep that was Quantum, Skyfall is a return to form that we had been awaiting since Craig's first performance wrapped up. Javier Bardem elevates the film to an incredible level and I think securely sits atop the mountain for best villain in the Craig era. Don't get me wrong, Waltz was good as Blofeld but the writing and tone of the next film really held him back from being extraordinary. The action and emotion of each scene hits home and it's visible that great care was taken with this one.

This concept is probably the most interesting in any Bond so far, and until the first hour and a half I thought it was the most fun Bond altogether. Then everything drowned in pointless explosions, gun-fights, chases, etc. I mean, I'm all for pointless action and stunts, but do we have to screw up a good plot with one whole hour of actionsploitation? Idk.

Also, this hacker-boy teaches the old action hero about logging in on Twitter thing is getting kinda worn out (see Die Hard, F&F, etc.)

A good action film but doesn't really feel like a Bond to me.

Everything was just as expected and there were nothing new. I think they should use some innovation in this series of movie! The casino royal was quite better. But as a movie, it wasn't bad.

Quite good and enjoyable, but certainly not among the best Bond movies! Good directing by Mendes, great cinematography, but I just can't get around the silly elements (even for Bond) of the script. Casino royale and QoS seemed to steer away from that a bit, but here's just too many improbable moments and the movie doesn't even try to show us a few bits of crazy rescuing, that would be fun to watch. spoiler The Bond's relationship with girls is one of the less developed in a Bond movie for a long time (which isn't necessarily bad!) Bardem was a good villain but it seems that he could be even more convincing in that role, we've all seen him act even better. It's hard to make a miracle role out of a faulty script, tho... Too much borrowed elements from older Bond movies (even for a 50th anniversary), or maybe just not placed well enough. Still, as almost every movie in the franchise, this one too has a lot to love, the scenes before the opening, animated opening, nice scenery in Scotland, a lot of computer hacking and the action scenes are mostly well done. Probably better than Quantum and worse than Casino royale.
