Before I get into this, let me just say the Skyfall theme song by Adele is amazing. Very, very catchy, and she deserved any and all awards she can for it.
As for Skyfall, the film is yet another great Bond movie with Daniel Craig in the lead. As always, the opening chase scene grabs viewers right away and sets the stage for a comeback plot for Bond. And really, the awesome plots are what make the Bond movies in how well-paced they are. This time, we see more of a reveal to the Bond character as the plot focuses on his personal relationship and connection to "M", and the inner struggle to do what he does best, espionage.
Many of the scenes are quite amazing, from the one mentioned above of the train crashing through to the final moments at Skyfall, this movie is all about capturing the scenery. And yes, Daniel Craig was fantastic again.
However, in my opinion (and that is exactly what this is), Skyfall is good, but not as great as Casino Royale was. Nonetheless, if you dig action films, Skyfall is a film that is must-see.
