When James Bond's (Daniel Craig's) latest assignment goes gravely wrong and Agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked, forcing (M Dame Judi Dench) 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, Miss Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris), following a trail to the mysterious Tiago Rodriguez, a.k.a. Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.Written by
The first time a character is audibly heard saying the "f" word in a James Bond movie. In The Living Daylights (1987), Bond (Timothy Dalton) clearly said "For fu-k's sake!", but it couldn't be heard due to plane engine noise. This movie is the first Bond movie to use an audible variation of the "f" word, said by M (Dame Judi Dench) at Skyfall Lodge. See more »
When Bond comes out of Westminster Station and runs up the road (Whitehall) there is a 38 bus. The 38 does not use this route. It should possibly be a 24. The 38 runs up Pall Mall. See more »

I'm stabilizing Ronson.
We don't have the time!
I have to stop the bleeding!

Bond's traditional shot towards the camera, seen through the barrel of a gun, is placed at the end of this, film rather than the beginning. After the blood stops dripping, the James Bond 50th Anniversary logo appears with the words "James Bond will return," below it. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
The best film in the era of Daniel Craig as James Bond. Supremely well acted. The best performances are by Craig, Dench and Bardem who are prize. Great action scenes, big issue that touches past Bond and M which little is known. Sam Mendes does a masterful job directing this installment of James Bond. Realmete with this film you can compare Danie Craig Sean Connolly.
