    I've never watched a Bond movie all the way through, I don't plan on watching one now.

    I suspect you might like this one. It is very different from other bond movies. The story and characters are more grounded, believable, and better developed than in other bond movies.

    And it doesn't end when you think it might, unlike the other, older Bond films.

    Quantum of Solace was a crappy continuation to Casino Royale. They reverted back to the classic bond formula.

    ...and the burn scar was so distracting.

    I liked Casino Royale better.

    Necromancy on this thread since there's a new Bond movie out.

    As disappointing as Quantum of Solace was, Skyfall is fantastic. For my money Casino Royale is still the best of the Daniel Craig era, but Skyfall is a very close second. It's much more character driven than Quantum was. Daniel Craig (Bond) is very good, Judi Dench (M) is the best I've seen her in the role, and Javier Bardem (Raoul Silva, the villain) is nothing short of brilliant.

    If you liked Casino Royale, then you will like Skyfall. I've written off Quantum as an unfortunate misstep.
