Being the year of the 50th anniversary of the beloved super spy, the 23rd Bond installment had a lot to live up to. While Casino Royale was a worthy and thrilling reboot to the franchise, Quantum of Solace fell flat with critics and fans. To make matters more interesting, MGM has had financial woes over the last number of years and needed a hit to reinvigorate the studio. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Skyfall.

Not only does the movie qualify as one of the most action-packed and entertaining movies of the year, it ranks on my list as one of the best Bond flicks to date. As has come to be expected, Craig is terrific as the British spy, portraying the character with charm and intensity. The action is top notch and the story is superbly written. Among my favorite moments were the blistering opening sequences, the introduction of the film's villain, and the intense final act, which finds Bond cornered yet unafraid. The real treat, however, is Bardem's role as the sinister Silva. Rivaling any villain in recent memory, save Heath Ledger's Joker, Bardem is intimidating, powerful, and irresistible to watch. You'll find yourself glued to the screen whenever he appears, and hoping he'll show up again soon when he's gone.

Another huge nod has to go to Mendes, whose vision of Bond is spectacular. The movie is tightly scripted and the director does a very fine job of bringing out great performances from his cast. The cinematography is some of the best I've seen in a film for a long time; the production crew did a remarkable job utilizing light, colors, and atmosphere to really draw the audience in. Another treat is the glimpse the audiences gets into Bond's past, which plays a crucial role in the film.

I am a die hard Sean-Connery-as-James-Bond fan. I like most of Roger's and a couple of Pierce's. I was not happy when I first learned of Daniel Craig as the new Bond. Daniel who? Was my first reaction. Not another Lazenby, I thought...
I like Casino Royale, but it took me a couple of watches on DVD for it to grow on me. I didn't hate Quantum of Solace as much as others seem to, but then I saw Skyfall..... I love this movie so much that not one day has gone by when I haven't thought of it at least once. I saw it twice in one week, and I never do that when movies are in theaters. The writers of this film must be brought back for the next one, yes it has some minor similarities to The Dark Knight movies, but so what. I can not wait for the Blu Ray release. I hate to admit it, but this may just be my new favorite Bond movie. The only thing that would make it perfect for me would be if Connery were still young enough to play Bond. The opening sequence, the action, Javier as the creepy villain, the surprises in the end.. It's almost perfect. Bravo Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson. Now do it again for Bond 24....

Oh...and did I mention the awesome theme song by Adele?? How perfect for the 50th year! Slightly reminiscent of Goldfinger theme, the Monty Norman 007 theme, very well done. Nobody does it better these days. Pun intended....

Although my family has rented Skyfall several times, we finally bought the DVD, because the movie is perfect; and perfection is rare, should be rewarded, and relived (in this case vicariously). Skyfall is visually astounding; the plot is clever and surprising; the suspense is pretty much constant and intense; and the casting and acting are spot on. Oh, and there's a perfect balance of humor and drama. We love all of the Daniel Craig Bond movies, but Skyfall is the best. We hope Spectre lives up to the rest of the series.

An intrepid Commander Bond has more than met his match in an invincible, vexatious nemesis, an Andri the Giant juggernaut incarnate from the earlier franchise movie "Goldfinger." James Bond the virile and priapic emissary that had the requisite propensity of effrontery and sangfroid to face down this truculent and rabid 800-pound gorilla (Javier Bardem). A stately M (Judi Dench) was summoned before the headmaster's study in London, because she lost the computer drive that had the identity of almost every NATO agent involved in terrorist organizations around the globe. M was asked to resign, but she ardently refused; she insisted on recovering the computer drive before it was decrypted and the secret agents' true identities are exposed. Shanghai and Macau, China (Las Vegas of the East), tantalizing vistas for 007 of these vertical, high-rise megalopolis' aerial landscapes, architectural structures, and voluptuous, audacious female companions (quite fond of the one with the ba-donka-donk)! The 2006 movie "Casino Royale" was good, but "Skyfall" is better and very entertaining, deserving five stars and more. The next installment "Spectre" will be released November 6. Starring Lea Seydoux from "Blue Is the Warmest Color." Ralph Fiennes will take the role of Judi Dench as M.

As a diehard Bond fan since I first saw "For Your Eyes Only" in 1981 I still have some bias against Daniel Craig. Wilson and Broccoli intentionally put Craig into a different Bond mold. Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, although good action films, are not really Bond films. Skyfall however on the surface gives glimmers of a real Bond film, but there's still a long way to go. Wilson and Broccoli's self-admitted heavy influence by the Bourne movies negatively affected the Bond franchise- not financially, but in undermining who Bond is. This Bond character is more a robotic brute, a shell of a person, and not the cool, in control spy. Let me get to the point. The movie Skyfall is a really good movie, maybe even great. I love the action, and Daniel Craig does a really good job being a Jason Bourne like character. It's far better than Quantum of Solace. Skyfall was worth seeing in the theaters, and is a good purchase on Blu-ray. If I had to rate this as a Bond movie, it would be 2 stars. It's not Craig's fault. That blame falls on Wilson and Broccoli. If you watch the movie as a Bond fan, you might be disappointed. If you watch as a big action movie fan, you'll love it.
