Critic Review - Entertainment Weekly

Conveys the melancholy of loss, mortality, and future-shock anxiety, while at the same time leaving us plenty of space to enjoy one of the most complexly unhinged villains in Bond history.

not bad but not BOND. More like Jason Bourse in first half and some kind of nonsensically emotional 'night of the living dead' in second. worst was that the villain was not willing to destroy the world!! classic bond dies.

The villain not willing to destroy the world? Well then Dr. No, Rosa Klebb, Goldfinger, Kananga, Brad Whittaker, Franz Sanchez, Alec Trevelyan, Elliot Carver, and Elektra King must never have been Bond villains because they weren't out to destroy the world either.

More like Bourne? You show me the Bourne movie where that retard Matt Damon walks into a European Casino in a tuxedo, and can tell a girl his name, then you can say it's like Bourne.

I don't think you know anything about Bond. Time for you to do your research little boy....

You were doing fine until you went and called Matt Damon a retard. What's wrong, still miffed he called out Sarah Palin as the dumb bitch she is in that interview? Still think all actors should shut up about politics and humanitarianism to keep from popping your precious little Fox News info bubble? Not gonna' happen, chump.

Wow. I have no idea where any of that stupid Fox news and Sarah Palin crap came from. You still living in 2008? Grow up little kid. Matt Damon is a retard, need proof. Watch any interview with him on anything you little kid. Your post had nothing to do with anything. Grow up and get a brain, or don't comment again.

Retard? Really? What are you? Like 13 or something? You freaking fanboys are so tiresome.

Accusing me of being 13 with a crappy response like that? You must love Matt Damon.

Yo, don't be hating on Matt Damon. The Bourne movies were great.

The Bourne movies sucked and Matt Damon is a piece of crap. Yet to here anybody refute that. All I've gotten so far are (what I expect to be) useless liberal scumbags who will suck on the dick of any left wing piece of crap.

Why are you trashing everybody for liking Matt Damon? Just because you don't like him doesn't mean he isn't a good actor. You need to understand that you aren't right. You can't respect that other people have their own opinions. Your opinion is in the minority anyway. Just because you think he is a bad actor doesn't mean he is.

*SPOILER*

Actually, more like Straw Dogs in the second half. Not a bad thing at all, mind, because that film rules, and so does Skyfall.

Is there anything sillier than the "NOT BOND" complaints?

Let's face it, we haven't seen films as good as Skyfall and Casino Royale since at the very least the first few Roger Moore outings. It's good that Bond has moved forwards. It's good that you have a film in an established franchise that is again willing to take risks and willing to offer some meat underneath interesting, oneiric spectacle, instead of sounding like a cash register through and through.
