Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's been a long time since I enjoyed a Bond movie so much."
‑ Tom Charity,
"Among the most ambitious imaginings of Bond to date: dark, supple, and punctuated with moments of unanticipated visual brilliance."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"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."
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"Mendes has embraced the general super-ness of Bond and taken his inspiration from the best superhero flick of recent years: The Dark Knight."
‑ Margot Harrison, Seven Days
"Solicits swoons like the best Bonds ever did, even if Bond's dangerously close to decommission."
‑ Sara Maria Vizcarrondo, Movies With Butter
"'Quantum of Solace,' was a dour, dire letdown. This picture's a substantial bounce back, and easily the best Craig Bond picture. Emotional depth and all."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"Mendes' approach to action is classical and elegant - no manic editing and blurry unintelligible images here - but what makes the movie special is the attention he pays his actors."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"It's not just a terrific Bond movie; it's a terrific movie, period."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"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."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"A very British Bond, and also a very personal one."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"The cool accomplishment of Skyfall, 23rd in the Broccoli franchise, is that it seems a necessary, rather than mandatory, addition to the year's popular culture."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
""Skyfall" is a different kind of Bond movie, one that works just fine on its own terms, but a steady diet of this might kill the franchise. One "Skyfall" is enough."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It is not the breath of fresh air that was 2006's "Casino Royale," but it is nearly as satisfying."
‑ Carla Meyer, Sacramento Bee
"One of the better bonds, but it isn't as good as Daniel Craig's first outing."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"It ought to win a prize just for reconnecting with what made the franchise successful in the first place, while also repositioning the Bond films for the '10s."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
