I was never much of a James Bond fan until Daniel Craig came along (I liked the gadgets more than the people). Skyfall is a good one...a slick, fast, action movie with an unexpected ending. Judi Dench's role is larger than usual, and Javier Bardem makes a very quirky villain. Skyfall has undertones of vulnerability not found in earlier 007 movies, but it remains a thriller in the truest sense of the word.
