    Best of all is the bad guy. Javier Bardem was always a tantalizing choice to play a Bond villain, and his Silva is a terrific creation, and certainly the most memorable villain in ...

    Didn't like the villain and bond girl(s) were forgettable. Lots of talking and chasing. No hot gadgets and Q is a young cyber punk?

    I really liked watching Skyfall. It was well writen and the plot was enough to keep me hooked to the end. I hope that the next Bond movie has a strong impression like this one did on me. Best Bond movie by far.

    After a disappointing quantum of solice movie, they come back with a more focused and less revenge driven Bond film. Villain didn't get enough screen time and seemed like a waste even though he had some decent scenes in the film. The db5 cameo was the best part of the film, shame it was blown up, but I loved the reaction from bond in how pissed he looked about the car being destroyed. Overall, it held together decently, but casino royale is still the best of this new series. It was also a nice send off for M. Finally, Judi dench given a decent role compared to the last 3 brosnan bond films.moreless
