Even an old-timer like me has to admit that Daniel Craig's Bond is the best--okay, one of the two best--ever, so it's a real pity that his stint looks increasingly likely to end up a wasted opportunity. 'Skyfall' IS better than the dire 'Quantum', but not by nearly enough. The requisitely exciting pre-credit sequence is workmanlike rather than original (echoes of 'Casino Royale') and leads into one of the least interesting theme songs of the entire series.The next hour features plotting that is downright tedious, dialogue that falls flat time and again. Things pick up a bit with Javier Bardem, but his villainous characterisation starts and ends with a bottle-blond hairdo and a foppy voice--hardly a classic. The storyline that develops following his arrival has more to it than the decades of plotless Bonds that preceded Craig, but a few moments' thought will make you realize that it has more holes than it takes to fill the Albert Hall, The climax is fumbled. They supposedly waited for Sam Mendes to be available to direct 'Spectre'; on this showing, they needn't have bothered.

With 'Skyfall' having been the highest-grosser in the franchise, the producers probably see no reason to learn the lesson taught by 'Casino Royale': that even action movies benefit from a plot and good writing. But so long as they don't, they'll have a business that makes money out of widgets, not films.

How did this movie get so much hype and be reviewed so well? The best bond villain yet they said........no he wasn't. The beginning was impressive, but why shoot bond and not the bad guy for goodness sake, is the new Moneypenny really that bad at aiming? And if she was supposed to shoot bond but not kill him why take such a risk? She obviously needed more training before going into the field. The villain taking that list or whatever it is from bond so easily and then the list being forgotten about later in the movie.
I thought I was watching a different movie from everyone else, is everyone else saying this movie is brilliant just because most others think it is?
The Adele song was terrible and I don't know how that woman received an award for that song, plus it's a song about an old shack in Scotland and they basically rip off the ending from Home Alone. I think for now I will stick with other bond movies like Goldeneye. This movie is just a mess and even my dad who likes a good bond movie thought Skyfall was bad. We are very unlikely to give Spectre a try at the cinema.

Bond's mission is to keep a computer drive that has a list of British agents from being used against them.

He chases the man who has it and they have a brawl on top of a train, But gets shot when a fellow agent misses her target. Bond falls into the river and is believed to be dead.

The British government is frustrated with M for losing the list. She is told that she'll be allowed to retire but she refuses to leave till the matter is resolved.

Bond has been laying low. When he learns of what happened, he returns. And M tasks him with finding the one who has the information. He eventually learns that the man is someone from M's past and has plans...

After the average mission of 'Question Of Sport' Mendes has brought us the Bond film most have been waiting for, for a very long time. Yes, Casino Royale was the reboot, but this is bringing 007 back where he belongs, hence the gun barrel sequence at the end.

Resurrection is the theme of the movie,and the film depicts Bond as almost reborn, when he returns.

Surprisigly though, this film is all about M, and Dench proves again what a great actress she is, by handling her role with maturity and no ham.

Bardem is the best Bond villain since Sanchez, and its easily the best entrance of any villain, when we have the long one shot of him talking to bond, walking from the elevator to him.

Craig proves yet again that he is the best Bond, and even though the films trailer shows a lot of 'grit' there is a lot of humour injected into the film.

Who'd have thought a new James Bond film could be good,hit all the buttons in term of story,villain,M, topicality,setting,even be able to look down on the Bourne franchise as a young pretender,that's lost its hero. Directed superbly by Sam Mendes,set chiefly in England( in the year of the Olympics and Daniel Craig's Bond dropping in to Buckingham Palace to pick up the Queen and parachute her in to stadium).In place of the Queen we have Judy Dench's M,treating her agents mean,keeping them keen,Bond's adoptive mother.Javier Bardem plays Raul Silva,the best Bond villain in ages,with the camp of a Hannibal Lecter crossed with Julian Assange,the blonde hair flopping,an agent turned rogue,involved in cyber-terrorism.Bond is shot by fellow agent Moneypenny(Harris),while trying to retrieve a stolen hard-drive containing the identities of Nato agents.

He returns from the dead ruggedly shaken(he fails the physical) to guard the woman who caused him to be shot.M herself is under scrutiny under pressure to resign from Mallory(Fiennes)after MI6 is bombed.M's antagonist Silva acts on matricidal emotions that Bond himself represses.This realism grounds the film,often mired in absurdity and fantasy, and the intelligence is upgraded.M quotes Tennyson's Ulysses.Bond meets geeky Q(Wishaw) in the National Gallery in front of Turner's The Fighting Temeraire,to draw a parallel between the scrapyard-bound warship and Bond's obsolescence.Casino Royale set the template of the new Craig Bond and would be hard to better,based as it was on the best Fleming novel.This is a great follow up on Bond's 50th anniversary.

There is an homoerotic scene between Bond and Silva which is highly comic.The Oedipal relationship with M is a new twist.
