I thought it was solid on all fronts. I give it a 8 out of 10.

It's also very accessible. You don't have to know anything about Bond to enjoy it.

I confess to not being as big a fan of Casino Royale and QOS as many are. Well, I guess lots of people don't like Quantum of Solace.

I enjoyed Skyfall much more then them. Non-fans of the Craig era should give it a chance.

I REALLY enjoyed the Villain, Silva.

I thought the last two movies had very forgettable bad guys, but Silva will stick with you.

Skyfall was great.

His face doesn't look very memorable.

The only character I can remember from any of the movies is Bond himself.

Trust me. There is much more to him than meets the eye. That's not even what he "really" looks like,

even if javier bardem's role is memorable it's not going to top his role as villain in no country for old men so what's the point

I went to see it on Friday, and I have to agree with what many of the reviews have said- that this is one of if not the best Bond film ever. It has a much more professional style than anything that has come before (the cinematography should be looking at an Oscar nomination come January, and possibly the music as well), it has a top director at the helm, and the acting is on a different level to any other Bond film.

But the main difference is that while it continues many Bond conventions, it is a completely different type of film. It builds a genuine emotional connection with the characters and that takes centre stage particularly through the second half of the film. The villain is both creepy and believable at the same time, and the performance is rightly being compared to that of Heath Ladger as the joker. In fact the whole film has similar story strands to the batman trilogy, which is both good and bad in my eyes. It makes for a great story, but also a story that I feel like I have seen before.

The film is brilliant, and I'd recommend it to anyone, whether you have enjoyed Bond in the past or not. Fans of the film will pick up numerous references to the franchise past, but the film is more than good enough to be enjoyable without that.

His acting performance was stellar. He is a great actor and his past film No Country For Old Men can testify to that.

It was my least favorite of the three new Bond movies. Daniel Craig looked too old and worn out to be Bond; I know that was kind of the point, to show the protagonist as weary and beaten so that he can make a comeback during the movie, but it just didn't work for me. Plus, the villain seemed weird for the sake of weird, instead of an actually disturbed person, but maybe that's just me.

The scene in Bond's old house was pretty cool.


It made more sense in my head.

I can see the similarities, but the villain in Skyfall feels totally undeveloped and unimportant compared to the Joker in The Dark Knight. The Skyfall villain never felt threatening or disturbing to me, only weird.

True, I don't even remember the villians from, well, pretty much all the other James Bond movies. Craig's been in the most critically acclaimed Bond films since the Sean Connery years according to RottenTomatoes and the IMDb.

Casino Royale was all right.

Quantum of Solace though? I've seen it, and I don't remember any single thing out of it.

Not a single thing. So that's just how bad it was.

Besides, the original "M" died with Bernard Lee anyways.

I'm reading the Casino Royale novel.

It's a great thriller. Apart from Bond's openly misogynistic attitude, it's amazing that it doesn't seem very dated, for a book that was written in the 50's.
