When James Bond's (Daniel Craig) latest assignment goes terribly wrong, it leads to a calamitous turn of events: Undercover agents around the world are exposed, and MI6 is attacked, forcing M (Judi Dench) to relocate the agency. With MI6 now compromised inside and out, M turns to the one man she can trust: Bond. Aided only by a field agent (Naomie Harris), Bond takes to the shadows and follows a trail to Silva (Javier Bardem), a man from M's past who wants to settle an old score.

one of the best bond movies ever the main baddie was awesome i hope to more bond movies like skyfall

Bond has moved on, a more thoughtful storyline better fight sequences and more interesting. OK it maybe more in common with the Bourne Identity than Roger Moore's comedic Bond but the franchise is no worse for it. From the outset the film separates itself from the previous incarnations as the new Bond establishes his first kills and thus the start of his 00 career. Mads Mikkelsen establishes himself as one of Bonds best villains and Eva Green as an excellent Bond girl, clever, attractive,feisty and sensitive. The scene in the shower where Bond goes to comfort her shows how much more grown up the storyline is to previous offerings as it also offers up other facets to the Bond persona. Then we have one of the best torture scenes as Le Chiffre swings the rope. The ending as Lynd drowns is truly sad but sets the scene for the following film. However the biggest endorsement for Casino Royale is the fact my wife absolutely loves the film which is praise indeed!

Very good film. Good story, but in some part of it Bond seems invincible. I'd prefer a deus ex machina intervention.

If Casino Royale recast Bond as believable human being in hard-bitten spy thriller, Skyfall snaps him back to cliched invincible superhero territory - complete with non-credible cartoon villain. Very, very disappointing - esp. when critics hail it as 'Best Bond Ever!' - it's not even the best of the last 3!
