Skyfall 2012

How is this movie getting such glorified reviews??? While the action scenes are fine, the story is somewhere between illogical and ridiculous.

None of the story lines make any sense, it's just one fight/chase after the next up until the idiotic finale. And yeah, let's connect the laptop of our villain super-hacker to the local network, what could go wrong.

It's just not the same anymore... An "ok" action flick without a trace of Bond, just like the previous Craig's Bonds.

For people saying this is the best bond film ever made you are wrong. Any classic Sean Connery bond flick beats any new bond movies.

79% Approval Rating. Truthfully I expected more and I wasn't the only one in the group I went and saw it with. I felt as if the pace was just wrong and that there wasn't really the type of climax that 2012 movie fans were seeking. I was hoping for a TDKR like redemption movie and what I got was a drawn out sequel setup with a bad guy who's physically and mentally capable of so much more than we get to see and too much character development from characters that we didn't need to see. The reason I like casino royal so much was that they abandoned the cliche, stale bond movie format and started fresh with a new story line. This movie just brought back that old story line format which i've had plenty of….

This is one of my favorite movies and the best action movie i have ever watched
Finally we get to know a little bit about Bond's past

I really like James Bond movies and this one was quite good after Daniel Craig being a huge disaapointment in the first two movies featuring him as James Bond.
The story was quite complex and probably not a Bond Bond, like you would expect. Still the best Bond with Craig so far. There's quite a lot of things that reference stories from the classical Bond movies - kind of comes to an end or better yet, the circle is (almost) complete :).
Judi Dench is fabulous as usual!

Certinly one of the best Bond films for me. A very well directed movie that is almost always a feast for the eye in one way or another. The action and chase scenes are highly engaging and scattered through the movie in moderate, fullfilling doses. The dialogue is quaint. The performances of are magnificent. Creig played Bond better than ever, Dench got a lot of time for her character and used it with much skill. The supporting cast was also very strong. If that all was not enough, we are treated to one of the best Bond songs and one of the best Bond villains.

The movie has a few kinks to work out, like being fairly predictable or unBondish at times, but overall it is nothing that detracts from the overall experience too much. This movie in many ways is everything that a modern Bond movie should be, at least in my eyes.

Above average action Movie without the "bond" feeling in it....

Good but not that good. Forced and idiotic at certain moments.

@diebagger Agreed. Skyfall is a beautifully shot film no doubt, with amazing cinematography. Although Javier Bardem didn't have much material to work with, he still managed delivered one the best performances of all Bond villains. Kudos for Judi Dench on her exit performance. And Skyfall is easily one of the best Bond songs.

At the end of the day, however, a Bond film should be exciting. And Skyfall lacks excitement and suspense. Skyfall is like driving the best car in the world on a traffic jam.

It's the Bond film we've all been waiting for. After the stunning reinvention of Casino Royale and the misstep that followed with Quantum of Solace, Skyfall feels like a true resurrection of the character and the Bond universe, and an incredible addition to the storied franchise.

I miss the old Bonds. What they lacked in visual effects they made up with stories that made sense. This one was complete nonsense all the way.

loading replies

Flat out, this is a fantastic 007 film. Personally, not my favorite in the whole franchise, but probably close to the top 5. I'll be ranking them soon to find out. What I really like about this movie is how it feels very modern while still filling a lot of the conventions that Craig's films had been missing. I do have some minor issues with plot points here and there, but not enough to bother me until a 3rd or 4th viewing. That first time I was so in love with the fight scenes and cinematography and acting and credits and Adele and... well I could go on forever.

James "Daniel" Bond almost like "Braveheart" defending his Scottish homestead ;)

back to see before going to see the last Bond and I liked it more than when I saw her in the cinema, one of the best Bond

This what a great movie. I'm just not sure it was a great Bond movie. It just didn't have the sense of fun that I expect from Bond.

loading replies

Another good (but not excellent) modern James Bond movie. This time around the story is more engaging than the previous two Bond movies but I did not like:

a) how they handled the technical aspects of the cyber terrorist threat. I mean, come on, nowadays every teen knows that hacking doesn't happen the way it is pictured here!

b) that no gadgets are used. I get that this should reflect the fact that there was some overuse of unbelievable gadgets in previous Bond movies and that modern secret agents are not running around wielding guns & gadgets, but to skip gadgets altogether seems a little drastic to me.

None the less this is a very enjoyable action movie and I most probably will watch again in the future.

Quite frankly one of the best Bond films ever and cements Craig's status in the role. This is up there with From Russia With Love and Goldfinger. The movie acts as a fantastic nod to 50 years of Bond with the final minutes sure to bring a smile to the faces of Bond fans in the same way that The Dark Knight Rises did for Batman fans. However rather than simply nodding to the previous entries, this is still a cracking film in its own right. After a great action sequence at the start, the spectacle is largely much more subdued with a greater emphasis on Bond as a character and a story that allows for Bond to do some actual spying and investigating. There is far more humour in this than the previous Craig films, but the quips are not overdone and a healthy dose of sarcasm helps. Whilst the action here serves the story much better rather than simply being sequences stitched together into the film, there are still some great sequences, notably a neon lit assassination and a final sequence at night in Scotland, both of which are beautifully shot by Roger Deakins. This is not just a great Bond film, but also one of the best of the blockbuster films released this year.

I had pretty much stopped enjoying the Bond franchise somewhere in the Brosnan era, and since then I have been watching them when I got around to it, didn't expect a whole lot, and mostly got what I expected.

But Skyfall took me by suprise, it's not clean, it's not stupidly gadgetly, it digs up a lot more backstory than I expected.

loading replies

As someone who gets bored watching any Bond film, I was incredibly surprised that I could actually enjoy this one. Skyfall isn't your typical Bond film - and that's a blessing rather than a curse.

Daniel Craig is the best Bond. Great movie.

not as good as the other BOND films

Still excellent! For sure, one of the best Bond films.

Best James Bond movie in years? I don't know about that, and I've seen every one of them. It's certainly good, and definitely way better than the bleak and disappointing "Quantum of Solace." But I still think that "Casino Royale" was better. At the same time, this does give "Casino Royale" a strong run for its money, and it's good to see them bring back secondary characters like Q. Worth it, especially for James Bond fans, and after this one, I'm very interested to see where they're going to go with the rebooted Bond (can we still call it rebooted after three movies?).

Good action, but as a 007 movie it just doesn't stack up like the others.

loading replies

Beautiful to watch - several scenes just stunning on screen - but Bond fans are gonna have a lot of complaints as this deviates from formula.

loading replies

It's not Bond anymore. Certain scenes are too long and not too interesting. Good overall, but not Bond-style.

loading replies

Well, in the first half Bond evolves from the ordinary, elegant commander on her Majesty's secret service to a weak, slow, self-destructive anti-hero wich is using his almighty superpowers only to betray the grim reaper. While the story develops, he gets permanently attacked of being too old for this stuff. So after every single one of M's inferiors failed, he kidnaps his Boss, and travels in his db5-time-machine to the past. But on his fate to rescue his now surrogate mother from a deranged former MI6 agent, he starts to portray Clint Eastwood in a final 3 round shootout in his family's estate, only to let the boss finally beeing killed by an irrelevant henchman.

sublime action movie but unworthy Bond-movie

loading replies

Great movie... The best 007 movie with Daniel Craig. Finally he fits into the character, because, specially in Quantum of Solace, he didn't act like James Bond to me. Anyway, a great action movie that I recommend to any 007 and action movie fans.

Loved it, though it had a few boring/long scenes.

Never a Bond fan but overall a nice action movie

Best bond ever ... honestly. It took all the old bonds just to lead up to this one. Impressive! Was definitely not expecting this. Great scenario, cast & directing.

Bond the old fashion way. Great cast and directing. Highly entertaining. I really enjoy it.

Ok i might have feared Daniel Craig as James bond in the past, and feared that de had lost the old James style ... But now I feel safe ... This movies totally rocks !!!
A tribute to Bond movies, a gift to the fans ... A pure moment of pleasure, without even overdoing it !

Chapeau !!!

Very good movie

loading replies

I don't like Daniel Craig as James Bond and the first two movies with him were horrible - didn't feel like James Bond movies at all. This one still isn't as good as the old (pre Craig) James Bond movies but much better.

I especially liked the end, when you find out at which time the movie plays (even though the technology-stuff is unrealistic ;)

loading replies

very poor, same as every other bond, same plot, weak script and hammy acting. if you don't like bond ignore everyones raves this is the same as all the rest.

loading replies

decent movie, great non stop action flick but the storyline has been done before. Seen this storyline too many times. 7/10

loading replies

This was a beautifully shot film with exceptional cinematography especially the stunning shots within the Shanghai skyline. The story too was intriguing with so much of society relying on technology. I also like more of the realism in action sequences as opposed to the sensationalism of the past. What I do not care for is the length of Bond films in general with this one coming in a little short of two hours and thirty minutes. It seems as if the movie could of and should of ended 30 minutes earlier and would have been sufficient. Although a good movie, I still prefer the Bourne series more.

loading replies

I'm surprised at all the praise. Being a big fan of the previous two Craig bonds, this one just didn't hold up. The villain was totally undercooked and the plot dull. The movie lacked that Bond vast feel, even though it obviously tried with various locales, which in this just felt tacked on serving no purpose. Disappointed.

loading replies

This is a really good movie. Cinematic without it being annoying, good action scenes, and compelling filler between action. Loved the opening sequence.

"Skyfall" brings Daniel Craig to his 3rd film as James Bond and it also brings the franchise to its 23rd film. While the same concept still there, "Skyfall" brings a new and fresh style to the franchise. Sam Mendes does an amazing job in the directing and pace of the film. The beautiful cinematography and locations make "Skyfall" a very exotic and mysterious film that really does its job entertaining the viewer. From the funny lines to the great action Daniel Craig does an acceptable job as James Bond. (Not a big fan of Daniel Craig as James Bond), While Daniel Craig sets his mark with his own style of James Bond, Javier Bardem does a very surpringly great job as the villain. Definately leaving his mark as a very "unique" villain that really shows the changing of times we live in. From the great action scenes to the classic Aston Martin DB5, "Skyfall" is the best James Bond movie in my opinion since "Goldeneye" with Pierce Brosnan. Definately a must see...
