Reviews for Skyfall.
- Chicago Sun-Times: "Triumphantly reinvents 007 in one of the best Bonds ever. This is a full-blooded, joyous, intelligent celebration of a beloved cultural icon, with Daniel Craig taking full possession of a role he previously played unconvincingly."
- Entertainment Weekly: "Both an elegy and a mission statement. It's also a great, long-lasting jolt of pleasure."
- The Hollywood Reporter: "Dramatically gripping while still brandishing a droll undercurrent of humor, this beautifully made film will certainly be embraced as one of the best Bonds."
- Variety: "Putting the 'intelligence' in MI6, Skyfall reps a smart, savvy and incredibly satisfying addition to the 007 oeuvre."
- New York Post: "In the utterly routine effort Skyfall, we're actually expected to cheer each chord we've heard so many times (here's a martini shaker! Look, it's a Walther PPK! And there's an Aston Martin!) We've been turned into wretched Pavlovian dogs, salivating at the bell instead of the snack."
- Boston Globe: "Truly tedious stakes for an action movie. The franchise isn't worried about world safety. It's fretting over whether to start wearing Depends."
- Boxoffice Magazine: "Big-screen action with panache and style [but] something about this Bond feels a little off."
- The New Yorker: "It would be lovely to announce that the new Bond movie is scintillating, or at least rambunctiously exciting, but Skyfall, in the recent mode of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, is a gloomy, dark action thriller, and almost completely without the cynical playfulness that drew us to the series in the first place."
