These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows - aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) - following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

In the first chase sequence before Patrice rides on top of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul there is a sign beside the stairs that says "PANTOLON" with a piece of paper on the first "O". In the next two shots it was missing. See more »
The opening credits feature Bond periodically shooting at targets, Shanghai dragons, Silva's skull logo, and the Skyfall mansion from which Bond's eyes stare out. At the end of the credits, the sky is seen falling upon the mansion. See more »
Some people thought Daniel Craig was too much like Bourne and the Bond style film had been abandoned. If you were worried about that fear not
Bond is back.
The film has great stunts & thrills - you'll see this in the long opening sequence. Bond is not burdened with gadgets and still has lots of energy.
Ignore the plot credibility (not as far fetched as some plots like Moonraker) and usual level of general film fiction where it comes to computing.
All the characters are great, from the MI6 team members to the villain (Silva) who acts like a traditional Bond villain. It is very easy to provide details and reveal the plot - the way the trailer was edited means it has not given too much away.
This film will provide thrills & you will laugh more than you did with Craig's last two films.
Classic Bond is back and it was a joy to see it, if you are a Bond enthusiast there are lots of treats in store.
