Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
When Bond's latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. 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.

When James uses his father Andrew Bond's rifle, an "AB" can be seen engraved on it. These are also the initials of classical Bond Producer Albert R. Broccoli but this is purely a coincidence. See more »
In the fight with the terrorist sniper in the tower Bond is not wearing gloves, but at the end of the fight he is holding the terrorist with a gloved hand over the edge of the building. 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 »
I dunno if you guys get this one but comparing to M:I4 Ghost Protocol this was a masterpiece.
Many similarities here and there but still surprisingly good. And really, back to the roots. Only few things made me little disappointed with this one was bond getting too erm. weird. It actually worked.
Not too much explosions (well there are..) not too much cgi-crap etc. and it got cooler every minute.
Really interesting bond for a long time. Actually needs brains a bit to watch this one, if you have seen them all I'll bet you get the idea with this one.
This was a comeback, I waited something like explode everything, slow motion effects, stupid sequences but really really inspired with this one.
One thing I don't get the hype of this movie, it stands on it's own greatly.
For bond fans: 9/10
