    I can honestly say that this is one of the best James Bond films that I have ever seen and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was very entertaining, action filled beautiful visually ,and it was also very smart and deep. The blend between old and new was in a perfect balance and it was a real pleasure to watch Daniel Craig as James Bond. He definitely made this character his own and I was highly impressed by him in this film. I thought it was very interesting to learn why Bond is the way he is and the writers did a great job telling the story. Overall, I had fun watching this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this film and I did not expect it to be as good as it was. I went into this movie thinking that it will be mediocre but the film was interesting, intense, and it had great character development. The writers of this film did a great job with writing a character that the audience can care about. I thought the film was entertaining and deep and that is a pretty rare combination these days. I think that Daniel Craig is amazing as James Bond and he gives this role an interesting angle. He is definitely one of those Bonds that you will never forget, I dare to say that he is as good as Sean Connery. Overall I liked this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.

    It's been four long years since we've had a new James Bond movie and let's just be honest: the last one was pretty darn lame. I wasn't expecting much from Skyfall but I heard so many great things in advance reviews that I had no choice but to check it out. The movie is absolutely amazing, though i might be overstating its brilliance because of how much the last Bond outing underwhelmed me. I'm definitely going to see this one again just to absorb all of it and to get a sense of what the movie feels like at repeat viewings. Daniel Craig really nails the role this time, making Bond something of a new hero for the new century. He's not just suave and sexy anymore, he's a whole lot more complicated and that makes things much richer and interesting. I wish that the whole franchise could have been this good. I'm almost tempted to go back and watch all of the old ones, even with Roger Moore... LOL!

    There are two things I like BEST about this movie (apart from the other 90 things I like about it). One, it's not in 3D, which is a blessing because every friggin movie that comes out these days has to be released in standard format and 3D and the 3D ones always give me nausea. No joke. I was afraid that they would only release this one in 3D which would be terrible for me because I LOVE the Bond movies. The second reason I love this movie so much is because Daniel Craig is SO hot! Yes, I'm not afraid to say it: Ladies and Gay Gents, RUN (Don't walk) to the theater to see this movie. I promise you will love it just for the visual of yummy Daniel Craig. He's the ultimate Bond, no matter what anyone says about him being too gritty and not classy (my friends all say that). He's the best. Also loved the rest of the cast, including Judi Dench, who is kind of the star of the whole thing.

    Wow, I was NOT expecting this to be such an entertaining flick. I usually don't like action thrillers or superhero franchises (ok, Bond is not a superhero, but he might as well be) but this one really tries to be something different. Maybe it's because it has a story that's about more than just car chases and gun fights. I liked how it focused on the story of M played by Judi Dench who thinks she is being pushed out of MI6 to be replaced by younger blood. There's nothing to prove that she's losing her grip on the organization except that her boss (played by Ralph Fiennes) seems to think that she is too old. She then goes about reinventing herself, the organization, and even Bond himself. This is a fun, high paced and purposeful movie that scores points for doing more than you would expect. I wish more mainstream movies were like this. Kudos to Sam Mendes, he's the best.

    This is one of the best movies of the year - actually, it's one of the best movies I've ever seen and probably the best James Bond flick there has been to date. I haven't seen them all (I hear there are almost two dozen) but of the ones I have seen, this one is superb. The last one from 2008 was pretty lackluster but this one is totes awesome. Daniel Craig really nails the part with his perfect mix of action and high stakes acting that he's the master of. I much prefer him in movies like this than The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Javier Bardem is also lethal as the baddie Silva. I heard that there is supposed to be some gay tension between him and Bond in the movie and I won't spoil it for you. Let's just say it definitely gives Bond another dimension...and it really works. The action sequences in the flick are top notch, especially the opening one in Turkey and the climax. A total blockbuster.

    Even though this movie is not for kids or families, I thoroughly enjoyed it...mostly because it's the best Bond movie I have ever seen! Most of the movies I saw with 007 growing up were with Sean Connery or Pierce Brosnan. But Daniel Craig takes the cake as the best James Bond I have ever seen. Yes, he's not as handsome as some of the others who have played 007 (like Brosnan) but he is perfect for the part because he plays Bond with a lot more depth and complexity than any other actor has been able to play him. Also Judi Dench is AMAZING as M and she finally gets to play the part that she was meant to play in this franchise. Too often M doesn't have much to do except say something snappy to reset everything but in this one she really gets to tell her own story and in some ways Bond is not the star. Also, kudos to Javier Bardem for another breakthrough performance. A great movie for adults.

    If Skyfall isn’t nominated for Best Picture this year, I hope it does what it was obviously designed to do: prove, once and for all, that Daniel Craig is the best Bond the franchise has ever known. In fact, after watching his adrenaline crushing and superbly transcendent performance as 007 in Skyfall, the only option for the owners of the franchise in any potential post-Craig Bond world is to completely reinterpret the character and thereby the modus operandi of cinema’s most enduring icon: Bond will have to be female or black or gay or all of that to be anywhere near as interesting as this creation from Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes.

    Much has been made of Javier Bardem joining the cast as the villainous Silva, and as superb as he is, it has to be said that the real star of the movie aside from Craig is the plot. For once, a major Hollywood action thriller has a storyline to match its unending adrenaline rush: the movie is essentially a series of brilliant sequences about the passage of time and the aging of Bond movie icons, brilliantly strung together in dramatic and moving fashion that will leave you both breathless and wondering why all movies that aren’t art house fodder can’t be this incisive, thoughtful, or existential. Yup, you read right: the 23rd Bond movie is an existential cinematic experience. Not “existential” in the Tree of Life way that ponders humanity’s place in the Universe, but a less ambitious second guessing of characters like M (Judi Dench) who wonder if she isn’t past her prime and must hasten the passing of the torch to the next generation.

    Bond is “killed” in the first 20 minutes after a spectacularly choreographed chase sequence in Istanbul, but we know he hasn’t really died because a) he’s Bond and b) it’s way too early in the film. As she ponders the fate of her “deceased” agent, M begins to face a challenge from Mallory (Ralph Fiennes) who wants her to prove that she is still worthy of managing M16. She doesn’t think she’s ready for retirement, but maybe her body isn’t telling her the truth. Living a life of deception and covertness has a way of making you guess at what’s real and illusory.

    Skyfall will be a huge, monster hit at the box office, not only in North America, but across the globe. It’s a popcorn movie that tastes gourmet, and will easily spawn a half dozen more sequels. It will also officially induct Daniel Craig into the bastion of Hollywood icons. An absolute must-see.

    I like the Sam Mindy's version of James bond. He can be brooding and intense when he needs to be, but the film still has enough action to be exciting. Daniel Craig is definitely a worthy heir to Sean Connery.
