First time I have seen Daniel Craig as Bond. Being I was a fan of previous Bonds, I was not sure how I would like the change. I have to say I did....I would describe Daniel Craig as a very persistent Bond. And what's not to love about Judi Dench - what an actress! Great to see Albert Finney in a minor, but memorable, role.

This could be one the best Bond movies ever; however it is marred by inexcusable real cruelty to a real animal. In the scene with the scorpion on Bond's wrist it is plain to see that the scorpion is both real and alive and it is also plain to see that the stinger has been cut off. Shame on you Daniel Craig for agreeing to make this scene.

Skyfall is a James Bond film featuring Daniel Craig in the lead role of the MI6 agent. The film starts off with Bond and Eve Moneypenny (played by Naomie Harris) pursuing a mercenary. However, Eve accidentally shoots Bond and he is presumed to be dead until he returns to MI6. In spite of failing all tests, he is welcomed back and made to pursue the mercenary once again, which leads to him going on a chase. The main antagonist of the film Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem) who brings several plot twists with him. The film has some amazing fight sequences along with an intriguing story. There is also the introduction of new characters. I believe the performances were carried out well, and the scenes were realistic. While this may not be the best movie in the franchise, it is definitely worth a watch. I would give it 4 stars. @Riveting_Reviews of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Reviews

exceptional performances from a formidable array of consummate actors, actresses, turn this improbable fable into something worthy of very Homer, outstanding, one of Bond's best, plus the implicit message that we are all living in a treacherous future, subject to devious, even nefarious, minds - remember, for instance, Nero, mad Caligula, Rasputin

Q: There are only about six people in the world who could set up fail-safes like this.
Bond: Can you get past them?
Q: I invented them.

Bond: Your competence is.
Q: Age is no guarantee of efficiency.
Bond: And youth is no guarantee of innovation.

Bond: You ready?
Kincade: I was ready before you were born, son.

Raoul (on Bond's file): Medical evaluation - fail. Physical evaluation - fail. Psychological evaluation, alcohol and substance addiction indicated. Ooh! Pathological rejection of authority based on unresolved childhood trauma.

Bond: In your defense, a moving target is harder to hit.
Eve: Then you'd better keep moving.
