New Trailer.

like the new trailer. Considering how long and drawn out Royale was, having a shorter movie isn't disappointing to me.

I can't wait for this flick to come out. I like the dirtier Bond. He's a Spy after all, all his job doesn't always afford the "right choice", but at the end, you still know it's Bond, James Bond.

Since Daulton took over as Bond, he has been grittier, and more action packed. I am happy that they have made him more of an action hero than some ***** jiggalo.

Loved the new Bond film. Some of the best actions sequences I've seen.

I think the first two were way too choppy and too many quick cuts and shaky cam. Otherwise the movie was good though.

I'm not going to disagree about the style. Usually, that doesn't work for me.

Saw it today and loved it.  The fact that it was a direct sequel to Casino Royale was great.  Glad that Felix and Giancarlo Giannini's character showed up too!  I'd say I preferred the locales from CR a bit more, but a nice sequel overall.  Looks like Mr White may be the new Bond recurring villain, and how about that Goldfinger homage?  :-*

I was going to see that on Friday, but had to bail.  Not good at all?  What didn't you like?  I have yet to see the new Bond in action.

I'm not really a 007 fan but heard good things about this movie.  Lots of action/tech, but seemed more like a ripoff of TDK to me.  Not a bad thing though.  Played off well.

I'm apparently in the minority, but I was hoping for a continuation of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace... but what I got was basically a 2.5 hour excuse to introduce a new Moneypenny and SPOILER Judy Dench.

Bardem was disappointing too. He did a great acting job but I was expecting Chigurh part 2, and he ended up just being a prissy pants that wanted to play with Bond's crotch.

I recommend seeing it, and you'll probably like it since I'm the only person on earth who was let down.

I really liked Skyfall. Take it for what it is, a fun movie.

Saw SKYFALL this afternoon. It was okay. Entertaining. The action was good, the plot...less so.  Better than Quantum of Solace, which was almost all chase scenes.

Bardem seemed to be channelling the late Raul Julia at times, coming off as a tad campy. His character was too much like Michael Bean's from Goldeneye. It's like the well of villainry has run dry in the P.C. world.  There's so few acceptable baddie types left and their schemes have to be more grounded nowdays. On the other hand, at least there was no satellite weapon.

The films makes Bond seem old and tired, I guess to make him more vunerable.  Craig is in better shape that I've ever been in, but damn he does look old and tired at times. Not that I want him to quit, he's got at least 2 more films in him (both contractually and physically).

Anyway, I wasn't disappointed in SKYFALL, but I wasn't expecting much.
