Known Trivia

  • This is the 23rd James Bond movie in the EON Productions official series and the 25th theatrically released James Bond film including the spoof Casino Royale and the unofficial Never Say Never Again. It is also the 26th James Bond film if counting the TV episode tele-movie Climax!: Casino Royale. Moreover, Skyfall’s associated video-game, 007 Legends, which has a ‘Skyfall’ mission, is also the 23rd title in its James Bond video-game series.
  • In 50 years of Bond movies, Skyfall is only the second film in which James Bond suffers a gunshot wound. (He is also shot in Thunderball during the junkanoo chase.)
  • This movie is not direct story continuation of the previous two films the way Quantum of Solace followed Casino Royale. Producer Barbara Broccoli said that the series “will go on to other different stories from now on.” However, the reappearance of the QUANTUM organization in later films is still a possibility. Broccoli has said: “I think in some way, he will go after the [Quantum] organization. So in that sense, it may become a trilogy, but we haven’t really structured it that way.”
  • With the use of Quantum of Solace, an original Ian Fleming James Bond story title, there now remains only four unused original Fleming titles that could possibly have been used as a title for this film. These are “The Property of a Lady”, “The Hildebrand Rarity”, “Risico” and “007 in New York” (aka “Agent 007 in New York”). However, none of these were used in favor of the original title, ‘Skyfall’
  • At one point it was rumored that this film would be shot in New York, leading to gossip that it would be based on the Fleming short story “007 in New York;” however, it turned out to be untrue and it appears that New York was never under consideration. Other rumors claimed that Israel would be used for several Bond films; that turned out to be false as well. A rumor that filming would take place in India was partially true; they were set to film a number of action scenes in India, but then plans were changed and all location shooting there was canceled.
  • Bond Girls in the movie are played by Naomie Harris as Eve; Bérénice Marlohe as Sévérine; Tonia Sotiropoulou as Bond’s Lover; and Elize du Toit as M’s Assistant Vanessa. Actresses Freida Pinto, Olivia Wilde, Rachel Weisz, Esti Ginzburg, Margarita Levieva, Alice Eve, Ana Ventura, Emilia Fox and Ebru Akel were rumored and/or considered to appear as Bond Girls in the movie. Reportedly, ‘Skyfall’ is the first ever James Bond film in the official series where production notes and publicity materials generally refer to the leading actresses in the film as ‘Bond Women’ and not as ‘Bond Girls’.
  • When MGM announced plans to release this film during November 2012, producer Barbara Broccoli said that the series “will go on to other different stories from now on” after the two previous Bond movies. As such, this film is not a direct follow-on from Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale. Director Sam Mendes said that ‘Skyfall’ does “not connect” with those two previous Bond movies. Mendes has also stated that the secret criminal organization Quantum from those two films does not feature in ‘Skyfall’.
  • Released in 2012 around late October/November, 2012 is the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series. Previously, Die Another Day was released in the 40th Anniversary year in 2002, Tomorrow Never Dies in the 35th Anniversary Year in 1997, The Living Daylights in the 25th Anniversary Year in 1987 whilst former Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli received the Academy Awards’ Thalberg Award in the 20th Anniversary year in 1982. ‘Skyfall’ world premiered within a couple of weeks of the 50th anniversary of the launch of Dr. No on 05/10/1962. Moreover, a new Bond documentary was made and released to tie-in with and celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the franchise, Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, it premiering also on 5th October.
  • ‘Skyfall’ and the previous Bond film Quantum of Solace represent the equal second longest period between films in the Bond film franchise. ‘Skyfall’ was released in 2012 after a four year hiatus from Quantum of Solace equaling the 4 year gap between Casino Royale (2006) and Die Another Day (2002). The gap between films also represents the longest gap in the series without a casting change to the actor playing James Bond. Previous hiatuses between Licence to Kill and GoldenEye (the longest period between films in the franchise) and then between Die Another Day and Casino Royale were both accompanied by casting changes to the actor playing James Bond.
  • Daniel Craig’s third outing playing James Bond. Craig’s first was Casino Royale and his second was Quantum of Solace. The film is Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film not to use an original Ian Fleming story for its title as his first two Bond movies used Fleming titles.

Goofs: Continuity: During the motorcycle chase scene, both Bond and Patrice are seen wearing sneakers – with a clearly visible white rubber band around the soles (to add more grip to their foot-pegs) and NOT dress shoes, like they were using before. This then alternates between the two kinds of footwear during the chase.

Plot: Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her, bringing MI6 under attack. Full summary »  »

Story: 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. Eve, an agent sent to assist Bond has them in her cross hairs but hesitates to take the shot because she might hit Bond but M orders her to take it. She does, and hits Bond who falls into the river and is believed to be dead. A few months later, the British government is upset with MI6 for losing the list; specifically with M. She is told that she'll be allowed to retire but she refuses to leave till the matter is resolved. So she returns to HQ to work on it but as she arrives, there's an explosion. In the meantime, Bond, who is not dead, 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 who has it, is someone from M's past and who has it in for her.Written by

  1. Vijay Dinanath from United Kingdom
    09 Dec 2012, 7:50 pm

    My 1st review! I was so disgusted with this film&annoyed criticspraised it I cracked and had a rant.

    Numerous Plot holes, contrivances, poor storytelling, characterlogic&motivation;

    1. The stolen agent list macguffin; Made famous in M:I then overused infilms&TV shows; CharliesAngels2 etc – halfway through the film theyjust forgot about it

    2. Hacking magic! Hacking can be done well;goldeneye,swordfish,diehard4…Not just an easy contrived plot device.Can we have a proper explanation &the rules&limitations of Silva'shacking ability in this fiction? For all I know Silva can makesatellites fall on people.

    3. The irony of the 'can Bond operate in an internet world' theme…hefailed twice and got M killed…so he can't?

    4. How out of place the above theme is; Bond is mature but alwayscurrent. His a walking encyclopedia (watch the start of anyConnery/Moore film). In the last 2 films he was using advanced mobilephone tracking systems…adding hacking does not suddenly make Bondtake on the 'modern' age. Are economics or funding civilwars outdated?

    There was hacking&computers in 1995's Goldeneye..all of a sudden, NOW,there are no more shadows? Did MI6 stop evolving in the late eighties?

    5.They have a meeting to discuss MI6? This was relevant in Batman, avigilante was trying to inspire people- It was intertwined in thenarrative&theme. Skyfall enquiry was just Sam Mendes ripping off Batman

    6. Silva's planned capture; Another overused device that wascoincidently in Batman. So what did Silva achieve? A conversation withM? When this is revealed shouldn't we look back and have everythingmake sense? But, NO, I was left wondering why they tried to kill Bondtwice in China.

    7. Why was a hacker in a cell controlled by a computer? Why is Q sostupid he plugged in the laptop to the building? Why was the trap dooron the inside of the first glass door? why was there a trap door? Howdid Silva evade an armed MI6 guard 20 meters from his cell?

    8. Super calculating (hack crazy)Silva's plan at the end was afirefight? With a backup plan of another firefight?

    9. So they figured out Silva was dressed as a cop and no-one toldanyone? The irony of M defending herself (reading a poem) knowing herown ex agent was about to shoot up the place was lost oncritics&writers alike.

    10. Could Bond not take a Sim free phone or'radio' &call backup whenSilva arrived at the end? Instead they had their Home Alone moment-even Macaulay Culkin eventually called the police

    11. Silva is supposed to mirror Bond. But compare Bond's 'betrayal' toSilva being handed over for torture… Some forced connection is madeconsidering they never met before. Silva tells a story of 2rats so weknow what we are supposed to think.

    12. Bond's betrayal is M ordering Naomi to take a risky shot. Bondlater tell's M he heard the order… why didn't he get out the waythen? he just kept fighting like an idiot. &did Naomi only have 1bullet?

    13.You can't make Bond survive 2 gun shots and a fall like that. Hisalready an established character. The Punisher&Bourne are specialBECAUSE they survive. It can't happen to them again mid film/ midfranchise..

    14. Bond follows an assassin&lets him kill innocent people! How is thisin his character?! The previous 2 films already rebooted Bond to showWHY he doesn't let innocents die.

    15. Naomi is a forced character..appearing randomly to remind us shestill exists so we can think it's 'clever' when she becomes Moneypenny.Money penny gets demoted from field agent to secretary?!! not evenanalyst. If she is that hopeless why is she on the most importantmission ever? I think Sam Mendes hates women.

    16. Bond doesn't even blink when the girl he just bedded a few hoursago gets shot in cold blood. He identifies Severine as being sextrafficked&abused- He then just jumps in her shower. I had littleproblem with Bond tricking a woman into bed in live and let die- butthe sky-fall scene should land him in the S-offenders list.

    17.They traced the shrapnel in Bond's chest to a 'special'bullet thatonly 3 people use? His a 'ghost'…but we have his full flightmanifesto. This is how they advanced the plot? wait a minute….didn'tthat bad guy shoot up half of turkey..? A contrivance& a plot hole inone plot device, that takes some doing.

    18. One minute he can't shoot…10 seconds later he shoots everyone ina 360 arc? so what happened? oh we are just abandoning that theme mid-se..

    19. Quite a few instances of Bond just standing in front of a landscapeshot with his legs apart 'being deep'. I thought he was urinating atfirst.

    20. Q is both a quartermaster&a programmer for the sake of theillogical theme.. but these are completely different skill sets…?

    21. Knowing all this…what is the list doing in Turkey? on a laptophardrive? why are only 2-3 agents on the case? They couldn't even dothe liberty of making something up for the audience. ImagineThunderball didn't show how SPECTRE got the nukes…

    Why couldn't Silva just hack the list? Oh because it isn't connected tothe internet you say…but the MI6 heating system is?

    The script makes no sense, the themes are inappropriate, Bond'scharacter&decision making has been altered &they have confused maturewith dinosaur. Die another Day was almost a Bond parody, but this oneis simply a mess,&a betrayal of Bond.

    Shame on critics too impatient to appreciate QoS for not spoon feedingthem everything & praising sky-fall because of poorly scattered themes&metaphors on a plot that makes no sense, just because it makes themfeel clever

  2. Teddy KGB from United Kingdom
    09 Dec 2012, 7:50 pm

    I should preface this by saying that I absolutely loved QoS (more thanmost)and Casino Royale. I'll start from the top.

    The Opening Credits:

    Visually the opening sequence was absolutely brilliant. Perhaps thebest yet. However the Adele song choice was a poor one in my opinion.It's pap. Neither sexy (Goldeneye, Goldfinger) nor adrenaline pumping(Casino Royale, QoS). Sure the girl can sing… but so can Madonna.

    Friendly Fire:

    He gets shot with an assault rifle, falls 100+ feet and ends up at thebottom of a 50ft+ waterfall. Of course Bond doesn't need to berealistic but let's at least have a far-fetched explanation for hissurvival please. A small Turkish boy with a first aid kit who happenedto be fishing at the bottom of the waterfall. Anything!


    Why no proper shots of Macau? Even just a decent panned intro. It'ssuch a perfect setting for bond scenes.

    The Komodo Dragon Killing:

    No need for an Attenborough lecture. As convincing as fanged unicorns.

    The Bond Girl:

    A sex slave who very quickly gets shot. What a big letdown after CasinoRoyale and QoS.

    The London Feel

    The film had very real shots of an overcast and murky looking Londonand the whole film felt inherently British. Really nice.


    I'm all for a fruity bond villain but what an anti-climax. Great intro,cool teeth but otherwise fairly bland. Certainly no Ernst Blofield or'Leshiffre'.

    Weak Plot:

    The biggest failing of this film was the plot. It went from a missionto recover a stolen hard-drive to a mission to protect an old dear (whocould've easily been killed several times). As for the motive, fairlytenuous and uninteresting:

    Blondie signed up for the Mi6 many years back, M sent him on a mission,things go wrong on the mission, Blondie gets captured (we don't getshown any of this) and years later Blondie feels as though he wants tokill an older, moodier and fairly unendearing M.

    The House Siege:

    This was cool. Easily on par with scenes from Shooter and The BourneIdentity (tall order).

    The Chapel:

    Be honest. When Silva walks into the chapel were you thinking:

    'Please don't shoot moody old M!'

    Or were you thinking:

    'NOOOOOOO! Please don't shoot the cool old guy with a sawn-off shotgunwho's been giving Bond some lip! He's the only new face that's beengiven a proper character!'

    As for the axe to the back – not exactly bond-like.


    Ingredients for an epic film. But an extremely weak plot and anundeveloped villain made it difficult to care about the final outcome.

    There were so many problems with the film that I felt let down. I feelthat Casino Royale was the best film to date; Skyfall was just adisappointment.

    The first 10 minutes or so were great, Bond's on a mission and thereare some memorable scenes (digger coupling the trains), but there aremajor plot-holes. When Bond is fighting on top of the train for thehard- drive, Eve says that she has a shot.

    Bond can hear the whole conversation between Eve and M, so why doesn'the get out of the way (or at least co-operate to provide an easyshot)?! M mentions that the choice was either possible success (takingthe shot) or guaranteed failure (leaving Bond to fight). You'd havemore chance with a TOP MI6 AGENT than a risky shot.

    I must be missing something, because QOS shows Bond finishing his FIRSTassignment, where Skyfall shows him to be old, out of shape, and at theend of his career; there's a MASSIVE gap between the two films. It'salmost as if the last two films and the reboot have been ignored.

    The Aston Martin from Goldfinger, Q's mentioning of the exploding pen(Goldeneye), and the appearance of Q (In the previous two films, Bondhas not met Q) seem to make it clear that CR and QOS have beenforgotten, and so Skyfall was used purely for a "50 year special",looking back at the previous bonds.

    When Bond leaves a trail leading to his house, why on earth wouldn't hecall back up to meet him there? If you have the Head of MI6 underprotection, you would need some actual protection – the plot makes nosense!

    Why did Silva want to get captured? He just escapes! If he wanted tokill M, he could have done that with the explosion in her office (witha delay), so what purpose did his capture possess? None!

    Overall, I was disappointment with Skyfall; possibly the worst Bondfilm to date. I expect more from Bond, and I hope that the next filmforgets Skyfall!

  4. Phil Moore from Oxford, England

    I thought Skyfall was awful. Worst of all it was just boring, somethingI would never think I would say about any Bond film.

    The movie starts off well enough, a good chase scene in an exoticlocation and it sets itself up for what could have been a good story.The trouble is after the first 15 mins the story seems to go nowhere.

    MI6 is in trouble, a list of its agents goes missing and has to berecovered. Bond who everyone thought was dead comes back to save theday. All good so far. Now for some very thin reason Bond has to go toShanghai. I wonder if this scene was added to boost box office figuresin China because it was totally irrelevant to the story. Next sceneBond meets the 'baddie'. Not some master criminal but an ex MI6 agentout for some revenge. This plot had already been covered in Goldeneyewith much better results. The Baddie looked more likely to Blow Bondthan Blow up MI6 and there was even a joke along that line.

    The story now moves to London. I applaud the decision to have a Bondmovie in the UK, especially in the Jubilee/Olympic/50 year Bond yearbut frankly it just painted England like every foreigners stereotype.Cold, Wet, and miserable. Now it is about a plot to kill M, this hasalso been covered before in 'The World is not Enough' and the movienever returns to locating the missing list of agents.

    Why didn't the bad guy just kill M at the beginning of the movie andspare me sitting through 2 hours of boredom? I gave this film 4/10because it has an unexpected twist at the end that the production teamhave managed not to leek prior to release. If it were not for that thenId probably have given it only 3/10.

    Craig is now showing his age and in my opinion there are many bettersuited actors to the part. People moaned about QOS but frankly thismovie is the worst Bond film ever.

  5. ice man from United States

    One of the worst films I have ever seen. Every single scene was flawedand had errors. From beginning to end the movie had mistake aftermistake. Now most movies have one or two mistakes and you just overlook it but when it happens in every scene of the movie, you can't justwave it to one side.

    For example, when Bond leaves the London underground and starts runningto save M. Here we have TWO errors. Firstly, M does not do MP'scommittee meetings and secondly, why does Bond run half way acrossLondon to get to her? Why not stop one of the police officer's toeither drive him or to give him the car? There are so many errors, likeI already said in EVERY single scene of the movie.

    Few others that I still remember are such as the opening scene, whydoes Eve who just mistakenly shot Bond with an automatic rifle not thenopen fire on the bad guy? How did Bond even survive such a drop? Howdid he end up in the arms of a beautiful woman on a beach? How did Eveeven miss shooting him jumping on the train earlier? Why did the badguy who had an automatic pistol and had Bond pinned down behind awooden market stall decide to jump on a motorbike rather than to killhim? Why did the police bikers even drive straight towards a man firinga weapon? How did Eve even turn up with a vehicle just as Bond left thebuilding? So many errors and so many gaps and that's just the first 8minutes! I can go on and on and on. EVERY scene had massive errors,Even the Aston Martin DB5 scene, how comes Bond has it? Why would heeven run away with M and get her killed? Are the SAS on strike? How didBond leave the casino in Macau after killing 3 bodyguards? Does a largecasino only have 3 security guards? Why even would they fight? Surelythey would have just shot him as soon as he enters the casino? JavierBardem's baddie character was ridiculous and comical. It was totallyunbelievable, even an 8 year old wouldn't believe the storyline. Pooracting and the camp/gay innuendos were painful to watch. I couldn'tbelieve what I was watching.

    This was an appalling movie. It relied on Judi Dench to hold it alltogether. Sadly I am not able to give it a 0 so I will give it 1/10. Noaction in the movie what so ever after the opening scene. Two menhugging on top of a train has been done so many times. Pathetic movieand the only people who will enjoy this are the brain dead. Shame oncritics who were saying this was the best Bond movie ever, you shouldbe ashamed of yourselves.

    I used to like Daniel Craig as Bond but thanks to this movie I nowdislike him too. Well done to Sam Mendes and Co, it takes a certainamount of talent or the lack of it to single handedly destroy Bond. Thehero in this movie was the final credits, the real baddie in this moviewas the man behind the camera.

    this time it's getting even worse than Quantum Of Solace. The story islame and stupid, the nonsense plot is build around a melodramaticinside view of Bond's psyche. O.K., when Bond is no bigger than lifedaredevil anymore, it seems to be a logical consequence, to let theaudience learn more about the "true" psyche of Bond. But this iscompletely crap in my eyes!

    An other complacent try by Mrs. Broccoli to revitalize the dusty genreof spy movies. But the audience was always smarter and realized, ofcourse, that Bond never was realistic. The audience does not need to beeducated in the direction of a more temporary 21st. century Bond bysome filmmakers who do not want become suspects of doing the same thingall over again. Bond WAS always the same for 40 years till AlbertBroccoli died and his very very untalented daughter took over thefranchise automatically. This happens when you bequeath abusiness,there is no warranty that your children are going to handle itwell.

    The real Bond is a classical archetype male and a chauvinistic,arrogant womanizer with a very dangerous job (secret agent), no womancan withstand although she knows what a heart breaker he is. Thisworked for 40 years and would have worked for another 40 years or so.The Bond we knew until Craig appeared might not be the type of manradical left-wing Eco-activist broads would like to welcome to theirsit-in.

    Fact is, the real Bond is dead!

    This is a private version of Mrs. Broccoli's fantasy Bond 008, a guywho deeply comprehends women instead of bumping them before they cancount to three (which might be a challenge for some real Bondgirls…). Of course it's intended not to be "your dirty old father's"Bond. It's a Bond for the masses not for the classes, offering a bit ofeverything the average movie goer under 20 (Twilight-fans) might wantto consume.

    Craig's Bond has become a sissy, who has a complex oedipal relationshipto elder women, especially to those he calls "M". Now, in Skyfall, wewill learn that "M" is for "mother"…

    There really was no need to change the Bond franchise so completely,except to squeeze out some dollars more out of the franchise. R.I.P.007!

    It's the Bond film we've all been waiting for. After the stunningreinvention of Casino Royale and the misstep that followed with Quantumof Solace, Skyfall feels like a true resurrection of the character andthe Bond universe, and an incredible addition to the storied franchise.From its spectacular opening scene in Istanbul to its sensationalclimax in the Scottish Highlands, the film grabs hold of the audienceand never lets go.

    With the great Sam Mendes at the helm, Skyfall is propelled by averitable narrative purpose. Mendes values story and character overanything, and he gets Bond. His action sequences are thrilling,artfully directed, and a joy to watch. He directs with finesse andnuance the powerful character-driven scenes. He understands the souland essence of Bond and respects the spirit of the franchise but alsobreaks new ground with the treatment of the story.

    Speaking of which, the script tells a moving, thematically resonant andintelligent story, and features superbly written scenes. It is morefocused than Quantum of Solace, which felt oddly disjointed at times.Writers Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan elegantly balancehumorous moments with truly dramatic ones while never straying from theemotional heart of the film. Best of all, they further develop CasinoRoyale's brilliant idea of delving into Bond's vulnerability and theresult is a fascinating and flawed character. The human and moralstakes are high and much more personal this time around. The audiencefeels emotionally invested in the story. In the end, the film is areflection on aging and on not only why the world needs Bond but alsowhy he must and will endure.

    Visually, Skyfall is a true wonder. Roger Deakins' cinematography isaesthetically magnificent and serves the story well. Deakins shootsIstanbul, London, Macau, Shanghai and the Scottish Highlands in atasteful, artistic and original manner. It is by far the mostbeautifully shot Bond I have ever seen. Thomas Newman's score isterrific and rich, cleverly using the classic Bond theme in new andinteresting ways and incorporating Adele's already-classic theme tocreate a memorable piece of music.

    Finally, the cast all deliver fine performances. Daniel Craig gives athoughtful, moving and nuanced performance, which constitutes hisstrongest interpretation of the character to date. Judi Dench offers amuch more intimate and personal take on M. Ralph Fiennes, AlbertFinney, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe are memorable.And what to say of Javier Bardem, who steals every scene he appears in?He is funny, unpredictable, frightening and most interestingly, tragic.A fantastic Bond villain.

    If you had any reservation about seeing this film after the lacklustreQuantum of Solace, fear no more. Skyfall redeems faults of the past andis one of the best films of the year. It hits all the right notes. SamMendes has infused Bond with a deft sense of fun, pathos and class.

    It's a great time at the movies.

    Amongst the very worst of the Bond series. Surprisingly, after anaction-packed pre-credit sequence it became so slow, plodding andtedious I wasn't sure it was actually supposed to be an action movieafter all. Then a few unimaginative 'action-sequences' were thrown inand we were supposedly off, except that the dull, leaden script (exceptfor a couple of sparkling moments) and badly contrived storyline(meandering between inanely pointless set pieces and sheerunbelievability) never actually let the film take off at any point. Andthere were so many plot-holes you could fire an Uzi a full 360 and nothit a thing. All this and what appears to be a complete aversion tomany of the long-standing characteristics that always made Bond who heis (and made a Bond movie a Bond movie) and you have a dull, third-ratespy movie about some tough bloke employed by Whitehall.

    If the central character's name was altered from Bond to, say, JackSteel or something, there would be little if anything left in the movieto suggest you might be watching a Bond movie.

    Yes, its tough and gritty, but gone is the suave, sophisticated,knowledgeable, utterly committed agent we are used to, now we have astroppy, confused man moping about getting drunk instead of reportingfor duty; who about a quarter way through the film remembers where heleft his razor and even gets himself together enough to shave; who,after being felt-up by a homosexual villain, alludes to previoushomosexual experiences he might have had; and who hatches a reallystupid plan to use M as bait by taking her to a completely isolatedmanor house with hardly any firepower available, whilst inviting thebaddies to come and get them, which they do with more men and morefirepower than Bond thought to bring along; not surprisingly Bond'sdaft 'plan' to get the villain results in Bond getting his boss killed.

    If the makers of the film want to revisit classic Bond, perhaps thetheme song to this one should have been "Nobody Does It Worse."

    Bond is dead.

    My first review on IMDb, couldn't resist offering some balance to theobvious early march of fanboy reviews! Always been abit of a Bond fanand I was looking forward to being taken away to some exotic locations,to escape for a few hours, and some edge of seat action but thesethings were missing from Skyfall.

    Production standards have slipped terribly on Skyfall with stuntmenclearly visible (motorbike chase)and some of the worst sets I have everseen. The Skyfall Lodge (Bond's family home) is especially appallingand some people even laughed in the cinema when they pulled up in theold Aston.

    The Q character doesn't work at all, not convincing in any way with thefake glasses and daft hair…EON please rethink this for the next movieand also forget the Moneypenny actress because she cannot act, leastnot in this character anyway.

    Some of the SFX were good but the opening chase scene was way to longand instead of building suspense most people just got bored.

    The french actress Berenice was superb as was Rory Kinnear, though forme Craig struggled to capture my attention like he did in CasinoRoyale.

    Bardem was underused or poorly directed and never intimidating as atrue 'baddie' should be, and why oh why did they dye his hair? it wasso so unconvincing.

    I have yet to meet anybody who thinks this is a great movie let alone'the best Bond ever!' I am staggered that some people like this Bondbut I guess we are all different! I wonder how these figures arecalculated as most of the last few thousand votes have been poor but Iam new to IMDb (great site by the way)so maybe it takes awhile for theearly enthusiast votes to be corrected by more 'normal' viewings?! AndI suppose there will always be the fan element hell bent on 'talking amovie up' whereas someone who has watched a film they dislike generallywill just want to forget about it!

    There are so many things wrong with this movie. Most of the elements ofa good Bond movie aren't there.

    The locations aren't well used. The Istanbul roof top & Bazaar chasehas already been shown in "Taken 2" and the TV show "Missing". Dejavu.The way they showed 'Shanghai' and 'Macau' at night it could have beenfilmed anywhere. The Scottish countryside shown was so grim.

    Where are the cars and gadgets? Nothing but the old Aston Martin. Justthat pistol and tracker. The new Q is so ineffective.

    The villain played by Javier Bardem. He is more comical than sinister.With the blond fright wig, the campy overtures and the most frighteningof all, the dentures this must the most absurd bad guy in Bond history.

    The climax feels cheap and conventional. They must have run out ofmoney for the second half. Such a stupid idea to bring M to that rundown Scottish house. With the home made defences and geriatricdefenders, it felt like Home Alone meets the Golden Girls. Might aswell have asked Betty White or grandma to join in.

    The new Bond girl Berenice Marlohe is exotic and fascinating to lookat. But why only one? Writing her out of the show so early and nothaving another was a mistake. The Bond girl is supposed to end up savedby Bond with a hook up at the end. Unless you consider M a Bond girl.

    The focus of the movie is M. Judi Dench was always too provinciallooking for MI6. The only good thing about this movie is that RalphFiennes is replacing her. Finally. There was no need to dedicate awhole movie to her farewell.

    Daniel Craig is just so haggard he looks worse than the villain. It'stime to replace him with someone younger and handsomer. Baffled by thegood reviews. Be warned we are being short changed.
