Default Oh. My. God. Skyfall.............

........... is utterly, utterly superb.

When the pre-release hype is so enormous, there is always the risk of even a goodish film turning out to be a disappointment, but no danger of that here. Even amidst the many brilliant moments, the scene where Javier Bardem 'interrogates' Bond is one of the great 007 moments.......... and Q is back - a really good showing by Ben Whishaw, and that's all I'm saying.

And if anyone spoils the ending before you see it (I'm certainly not going to), you have my permission to punch them in the face very hard indeed...........

Agreed. Although I couldn't help thinking Q should have been the nerdy one from The IT Crowd...

I can't wait to watch this Bond film, I always watch them on the big screen, Daniel Craig is brilliant, by far the best Bond ever, Connery was really good, but watch the fight scenes, Craig is a beast.

I want to see it twice, so that will do for the second viewing - thanks.

Was Craig's best Bond film to date - saw it yesterday. Returned to more traditional Bond fare without too much silliness.

You rate it above Casino Royale? Interesting....... that's a close race for me, but the films are quite different in tone. In any case, since Casino Royale was for me the best Bond film of them all, this puts Skyfall at either No 1 or No 2 all-time. Not bad.

And I'm still not going to spoil the ending..... but bits and pieces will start to leak out here and there, so see it sooner rather than later, people.

Off to watch it tonight. Every time I find anything on the film online I rush to close the tab so I don't accidentally spoil the enjoyment!

We saw it at the Meydan IMAX on Monday evening. Good film and that's all I will say so as not to spoli it for those that haven't seen it yet

I had read that there was a lot of Daniel Craig w/o his shirt on, but didn't see much so I assume some of that was cut? I really liked the new Q. made a lot of sense.
