Saw it and liked it a lot. Much less dark and brooding than the previous two Daniel Craig 007 installments. Great cinematography and use of locations. The scenes in Shanghai and Macau were simply gorgeous, and made me want to hop a jet and travel to both locations as soon as the movie was over. Yes, the plot was kind of thin, but then it's James Bond, never really a series known for gripping dramatic screenplays. The action was more intense and frequent than in the previous two Bond films, which I view as a welcome return to what makes Bond great. I really enjoy Daniel Craig in the role, and he brings an edge to Bond that no other actor previously was capable of. That said, I want epic fight and chase scenes, the occasional cool gizmo and perfectly timed snappy one-liners in my 007 experience, it's what I grew up on. Skyfall delivered, helped along by fantastic performances by Javier Bardem and Judi Dench. I didn't even mind the prevailing theme of "hey look, Bond's getting old", although I'm not sure how that's going to play out if they really expect it to carry through to the next 2 or 3 movies. One thing that did stand out as ridiculous was the Aston-Martin. Here is a classic bond car from the mid-60's, and we're supposed to believe that this James Bond has a fond attachment to it from previous missions (or so we infer from his anger when it is destroyed by the bad guys). Even if Bond were a fresh-faced 25-year-old MI6 agent when he used the car in a mission, that would make him 70+ in this movie! Hardly! That was a very out-of-place moment in the script, even if it was just being played for laughs. For those of you dismayed at the destruction of such a classic (I mean the DB5, not M), fear not, the actual car is safe and sound, and only 3 Voxeljet 3D printer created versions of it were actually harmed in the making of the film. Pretty cool.
