I'll admit that when I first saw Casino Royale I was underwhelmed, Craig just felt like too much of a thug to be Bond; and the less said about Quantum of Solace the better. Subsequent viewings of Casino Royale have changed my opinion, but it's safe to say that I went into Skyfall with mixed feelings.

I remember watching the pre-credits sequence with an irrepressible smile on my face; Bond was back, exactly as he should be. Everything was perfect, from the humour, to the action, to the little tug to straighten his cuffs (as every gent knows, a finger of cuff below the jacket sleeve is essential), and then the film just got better. I know that if you consider Silva's plan it really doesn't stand up to scrutiny, but this movie is made with such joy and respect to the history of the franchise that I just don't care. Not since Goldfinger has, for me, an actor nailed Bond as perfectly as Craig does here. He's weary, cynical, but absolutely brilliant at what he does. And of course there's Judi Dench as M. Trying to decide whether she's better than Bernard Lee, or vice versa, is like trying to decide whether chocolate is better than fudge; they're both brilliant. But i loved her speech at the public enquiry, stirring and yet relevant to the world that we live in.

So I loved it, sure it has faults; but nothing's perfect. I recommend this to fans of the Bond franchise and to those who just enjoy a great action movie; it's blooming fantastic.

The Craig Bond films manage the surprising feat of being true to both the novels' and the movies' legacies, and at the heart of John Logan's script for Skyfall is a good idea (apparently a leftover from Peter Morgan's abandoned treatment that was put on hold when MGM/UA went into bankruptcy, delaying the film by two years): everything we associate with Bond and his past is reintroduced and taken from him or destroyed before the classic Bond is resurrected in a way that's true to both the novels and the films. Where Casino Royale went back to the very beginning, Skyfall uses a lot of both the darker plot of the novel The Man with the Golden Gun (a washed out Bond returns from the dead and is sent on a mission that will either redeem him or conveniently see him killed off) and the siege finale of Fleming's (rather than EON's) Spy Who Loved Me and reworks them for the present day.

In many ways the film is a journey into the past, starting out as an epic globe-trotting adventure before scaling down to Bond's childhood Scottish roots and finally bringing the series full circle with Moneypenny back in the same blue dress she wore in Dr No and M no longer in a hi-tech office but the old wood-panelled one with the same padded door and the same naval painting on the wall from the Bernard Lee days, rewinding the series to the Connery era. If hats were still in fashion, Craig would have made his entrance throwing his onto the hat stand. It's a deliciously understated scene that goes uncommented on - thankfully the film never feels the need to knowingly wink at the audience - that will have Bond fans of old feeling like a puppy dog with two tails.

The James Bond franchise is now in it's third renewal and to my mind the Daniel Craig films are the best since the early Sean Connery movies. Certainly the present series of films are closer to the Fleming novels in character that the commercial gimmick movies of the eighties and nineties.

Good solid enjoyable action entertainment

Great film, completes my collection so far, very techy content but still enjoyable. No so many corny but funny quips as the earlier films with Sean Connery and Roger Moore. The action is well done with brilliant sets.

Got this today & watched it straight away. was unable to see it at the cinema unfortunately which i'm sure would have been awesome but just fantastic on blue ray anyway. Great action as usual, MUCH better than quantam of solace and as good as casino royale but for different reasons. much more character driven for bond and M and even the villain (a marvellous Javier Bardem) particularly, rather than humourous which makes it more than your standard Bond film. Highly recommended all round

It's more like a traditional Bond than anything in years but is also nothing like any Bond film we've seen before. It has more invention in every scene than all of the 90s and 00s films put together and almost every set piece is as good as the parkour scene in Casino Royale. It's beautifully directed and really puts pretty much every Bond film ever to shame in that department, it's bloody hilarious while taking its subject matter completely seriously, and Daniel Craig IS Bond. It's like they looked at Quantum of Solice and thought "Yeah, you know that film nobody liked. Let's make the COMPLETE opposite of that".

There were so many wonderful moments. The entire opening teaser (I especially liked how it began with its own spin on the gunbarrel). The title sequence. The scenes of Bond trying to cope living on an island and trying to recapture the thrill of his job with the scorpion drinking games. The reveal that Bond didn't pass the tests but M took him back anyway. The scene in Shanghai where Bond grabs onto the bottom of a flipping lift as it's going up and then witnesses an assassination and gets into in a punch-up in the shadows, all against the surreal backdrop of the reflected Shanghai skyline. The Q-Branch scene which brings back all the sorely missed elements of Bond and Q's relationship yet still feels like a completely new take on the character (certainly more than Cleese). The casino scene complete with a dangerous pit with a man-eating Kimodo Dragon (slightly dodgy CGI aside), which contains the great moment where the underwhelming isomorphically-controlled gun turned out to work just as well as any of Q's gadgets should. Silva's island, a brilliant spin on the classic Bond Villain Lair with considerably more creepy undertones due to the whole ghost-town vibe.
