All we can reasonably be sure of what they've been telling us since From Russia With Love: James Bond will return. He's welcome back any time.

Skyfall is highly aware of the earlier stuff, and even pays direct homage to the work of previous Bonds via props and plot, ensuring any true 007 fan will feel a tickle from every Aston Martin reference.

This is your father's James Bond. And director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) makes it thrilling, fun, and fresh.
August 21, 2015
Some Bond films show their age. Not Skyfall. It's super sky-high entertainment and brimming with excitement.

August 21, 2015
Craig has relaxed into Bond without losing any steeliness.
August 21, 2015
As an attempt to fill in Bond as a character, rather than just make the same film over, Mendes has succeeded, I think.
August 21, 2015
One of the year's most crackling adventure films, one of Bond's most satisfying outings, and proof that you can indeed teach an old horndog new tricks.

August 21, 2015
In a late-year picture that ordinary moviegoers really cared about, with good reason, Judi Dench's M rivaled Daniel Craig's James Bond in screen time and easily outdid him in complexity of motive.
August 21, 2015
This year marks the Bond series' 50th anniversary, and for an agent who has been in the field for half a century, he looks pretty spry.
August 21, 2015
In Sam Mendes's first Bond movie, dazzlingly photographed by Roger Deakins, the sequences shot in wintry London and Scotland stand out.
August 21, 2015
The franchise's signature elaborate action sequences are fewer and shorter, making for a more intimate, personal story.

Director Sam Mendes can't decide if he's shooting a chilly noir or a Roger Moore camp classic.
April 16, 2014
Visual elements draw from a theatrical vocabulary, such as a besorrowed M overlooking gray London at a window slashed with billions of cold tears, match-cut to wounded Bond cascading over a waterfall like a spent package.
July 24, 2013
It's not just a terrific Bond movie; it's a terrific movie, period.

It is not the breath of fresh air that was 2006's "Casino Royale," but it is nearly as satisfying.

Mendes has embraced the general super-ness of Bond and taken his inspiration from the best superhero flick of recent years: The Dark Knight.

May 13, 2013
For 50 years, we've placed our stock in Bonds, but never have our investments yielded the sort of windfall 'Skyfall' delivers over two-and-a-half hours of pulsating entertainment that will leave you shaken - and stirred.

March 21, 2013
One of the better bonds, but it isn't as good as Daniel Craig's first outing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 18, 2013
Solicits swoons like the best Bonds ever did, even if Bond's dangerously close to decommission.
March 3, 2013
A very British Bond, and also a very personal one.
