    Here is this Daniel Craig – killer of Albanians again! How come Albanians are terrorists and mafia every time? Because we believe in Allah? Americans are stupid just like Serbs and Jews.

    As a huge fan of Pierce Brosnan, when they first cast Daniel Craig as James Bond i didn’t think he could pull it off. Glad i was wrong, he’s done such a great job. Now I’ve grown to love and respect him as an actor.

    quite the contrary., Daniel Craig is handing over the head of a British guy to the Serbs just to please them

    Daniel is such a talented actor.
    And since he accepted Bond, he has been raking it in!!!

    @Hashim 100% Albanian: Sheeesh, you should get the facts straight before you go running your mouth. Daniel has no say in this matter. The decision always belongs to producer/director. And remember America, NATO, committed Kosovo Liberation Army (Albanians) in Kosovo War. So your “blame game” is always entirely off the mark.

    One thing to say, THE BEST James Bond movie I’ve ever watched!

    I saw the film TWICE already and will see it again before it leaves the cinemas. Daniel Craig is offically the BEST Bond (something I never thought I would ever say due to Sean Connery) and an excellent actor. Javier Bardem is the Marlon Brando of our generation and the BEST Bond baddie EVER. Dame Judi Dench, much respect and awe to you! Ralph Fiennes, you have never fail to amazed me with your acting abilities. Naomie and Ben, great performances…here’s to your wonderful future!

    Guinness-spoilers Says:

    I like how Dan disagreed with showing how certain scenes were made or how he won’t “say” how things were done…. because it is entertainment and the Man Behind the Curtain magic is lost if all stunts were disclosed or trailers give too much. I watched too much and read too much about this movie that some of the scenes were “not magical” to me–I knew he was attached to the train–I mean logically he was, but I was looking to see if I could find the cables… (but MY dan was impressed.) And when he fell into the water, I knew it was in a huge studio with BIG turbine thingys….so, next time….

    Bond was also on NPR today. He is everywhere. And Dan is somehow related to royalty or to the Bond that Ian originally wrote about. Here comes all the stories!!! yeee haw. ohmygash I loved the shaving scene. I have done that. it is pure fun—and to think of ME doing it to Dna just aobut snesds me head to seexxynes.s…………..

    ok. Mendel–you gonna give your 2 sense?

    The movie is amazing!
    Just a perfect mix!!!!
    Best James Bond ever!

    @kitty: He was under a lot of pressure because it was his first big job. Some people attacked Daniels Bond, but Casino Royale was great success. Since then, he always must have felt the pressure of expectations. I totally agree with the latter half. I have to take my hat off to him for his courage. He was able to confront the difficulties, and opposed reason against prejudice. Now one more word. He is an actor who deserves to be respected!

    Monica Says:

    @kris: They recently signed Daniel for at least two and possibly three more movies and hope to have the next Bond ready a couple of years from now. (THR)

    Skyfall was INCREDIBLE! Looks like Daniel Craig has another marquee Bond film to add to the historic franchise. I could see it again another two or three times; it was that good. I will definitely own this one when it’s out on DVD. Congrats to Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem. Javier makes a great Bond villain.
