Craig again impresses as Bond. He switches without fuss from Roger Moore-style self-deprecating comedy (adjusting his cuff links in action sequences) to the darker, more intense scenes which focus on Bond’s childhood traumas.

"This is a classic Bond film and something new. Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace had shades of the Bond of old with a tough Bourne like strength in the mix, something which here has been replaced with a confident new hand. What is emerging is an action series which is no longer seeking to borrow from the films it originally inspired, nor to coast on past glories. Bond is finding its feet on new ground and the results are exhilarating."

All these positive reviews are making me even more excited. I had a good feeling about this one. Felt that it was going to be great. So much talent in this film.

And Bardem would undoubtedly steal the movie if it wasn’t for another defining performance by Daniel Craig as James Bond. Skyfall really provides him with the opportunity to showcase his ability as a great actor. He’s brutal when he needs to be, and charming and suave when the situation arises. But it's those icy blue eyes of Craig – something the opening credits poignantly linger on – that let the melancholia of Bond seep out between the bluster and the bravado. His performance hints at but never fully reveals the emptiness of the character, and why he compulsively flirts with death and self-destruction.

"Craig gets some new notes to play for the character, and does as reliably and excellently as he did in the two previous entries. 007 now fits him like a glove."

the money should do well in BO and I hope Daniel has some back-end deals signed for this :cheer:

Early UK Press Reviews
12th October 2012

Sony, MGM and EON Productions hosted the first media screening of the new James Bond film on Friday 12th October 2012. All of the British press and media seemed to be attending the 1,600 seat screening along with MI6. All of the press excerpts below have been selected to avoid plot spoilers.

The Independent
Mendes has gone back to basics: chases, stunts, fights. At the same time, he has subtly re-invented the franchise, throwing in far greater depth of characterization than we’re accustomed to in a series of films that are often proudly superficial.... Craig again impresses as Bond. He switches without fuss from Roger Moore-style self-deprecating comedy (adjusting his cuff links in action sequences) to the darker, more intense scenes which focus on Bond’s childhood traumas.

The Express
Craig is on cracking form as Bond, all rippling muscles and curling lip and Dame Judi Dench puts in an elegantly melancholy performance as M. Apparently director Sam Mendes lobbied hard to get Javier Bardem on board as the villain and he does do rather a nice line in chilling psychopathic monsters. Is he good here? The answer is a qualified yes. He is not a villain in pursuit of world domination like Ernst Blofeld, and he is slightly upstaged by his own hair but he never fails to surprise.That he can make us laugh at the same time only makes him more menacing.

Time Out
Mendes knows there’s a risk of appearing po-faced by omitting the traditional pleasures of a Bond movie, and his approach seems calculated to stick to the formula while moving things forward... It's only in the second half of the film, which takes place entirely in the UK, that you get the feeling that Mendes has dealt the compulsory 007 cards that any Bond director has to play. Now he’s properly able to get stuck into a more punchy, more unified mix of action, emotion and story that climaxes in a fittingly isolated and lonely final showdown between Bond and his latest nemesis.

The Guardian
Craig, as ever, makes for a splendidly authoritative Bond, even when he's suffering a crisis of faith and scowling at his reflection inside dirty mirrors. But he's matched beautifully by Bardem's playful, jubilant turn as the silken Raoul Silva, who sets out to turn 007 against M ("Mummy's been very bad") and quite possibly take her place... the makers of Skyfall have taken the bold decision to open Bond up – to probe at the character's back-story and raise a toast to his relationship with M.

Daily Mail
Mendes has done a marvelous job and Craig is superb -- looking super cool in a Tom Ford suit-- as a Bond who's still looking suave after 50 years giving pleasure to all. Great actress that she is the dynamic Dame still knows how to raise a laugh or two even though M's in a thundering mood .Two new operatives, played by Naomie Harris and Ben Wishaw, help 007 tool up to get after the bad guys and I have to tell you that Bardem turns Silva into one helluva Mr. Bad-ass.

The Telegraph
When is a Bond film not a Bond film? It’s a question likely to prey on the minds of the very many cinema goers who will see this 23rd official 007 adventure. Skyfall shakes together familiar elements of the Ian Fleming canon – the cars, the guns, the exotic locales with the dames to match – into a blistering comic book escapade that the old Bond, and one suspects Fleming too, would find altogether alien.

The Sun
British director Sam Mendes knows what has made Britain great since the first Bond film came out in 1962 and that is being cool. This film is stylish, witty and a class above the competition. It’s also irreverent about its past. Daniel Craig again proves himself to be a great Bond. Like a certain beer, which I won’t identify because its an expensive piece of product placement to have James drinking it in Skyfall, Bond refreshes the parts other spy movies can’t reach.

London Evening Standard
This is, you might say, the Diamond Jubilee Bond. You might have thought it would be hard to surpass Bond’s role stepping out with the Queen at the Olympics? Well, Skyfall runs it close.

Daily Mirror
The man with the golden hair - aka Daniel Craig - returns for what might just be the best James Bond film ever. Enthralling, explosive and often very funny, Skyfall doesn't just exceed expectations but shatters them like a bullet to the head. While Skyfall looks and feels like a Bond film - the exotic locales, the memorable villain and an appearance from that iconic silver Aston Martin - director Sam Mendes hasn't been afraid to play with the formula.
