After all the hopes that I had for this film being the return to greatness for the franchise, I am sad to report that Bond has once again misfired.

Has Bond still learning the ropes and leaning on 50 years of nostalgic gimmicks for appeal, but it could be the final step in a prolonged road to the first great Craig Bond flick

Suffers from unconvincing plotting, and a third act so bad it brings the roof of the whole endeavour caving in

Skyfall doesn't have the layers it needs to strut so casually for so long.

Too often this martini is sloppy, not smooth.

Skyfall is an awesome James Bond movie until it gets tired of all that, goes a little crazy and turns into a not-so-awesome Home Alone movie.

The new outlook, fresh cast and leaner chassis suggest that the franchise can really kick on from here, but it's hard not to feel that Skyfall itself is something of a missed opportunity. Better luck next time, James. Again.

Where have you gone, 007? Skyfall has transformed you from the human, vulnerable, skillful spy into a Superhero Bond. In Skyfall, Bond is part Aquaman and part Road Runner, with some familial angst pilfered from Bruce Wayne. He's become an action toy.

A bloated, tedious, uninspired, sluggish and vapid bore that can only be enjoyed by very shallow, unctuous philistines.

Skyfall's fatal misstep is its slavish hewing to event-movie trends.

If this proves to be a transitional film, let it be as an introduction to an agent who comes back with his sense of humor intact.

Mendes and Deakins are so busy trying to be visionary that they don't notice that characters are wandering too far from their roots, and half the time you can't see what's going on.

That "Skyfall" looks strikingly beautiful may explain why it has already generated waves of positive buzz. At two hours and 25 minutes, the movie runs far too long, but has been artfully rendered to obscure its fundamental simplicity.

A disappointing James Bond thriller.

These are truly tedious stakes for an action movie. The franchise isn't worried about world safety. It's fretting over whether to start wearing Depends.

Director Sam Mendes can't decide if he's shooting a chilly noir or a Roger Moore camp classic.

This sensitive new Bond world is really not enough.

Who pays the price for Skyfall? Bond fans do, of course. But so does Daniel Craig. He's not going to be around forever - not in this shape, anyway.

"My name is Bond, Emo Bond." Is there a 12-step program for whiny, moping, bland Spies? Daniel Craig may fit the part of Bond but after 3 movies its clear he doesn't want to be there.

A series that gloried in wit, irony and sex has been reduced to a generic spy thriller.

At times Skyfall is simply sensational.
