Nope http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/skyfall/

93% and hopefully rising. Rising get it?

If Skyfall is doing well critically then I like to think a little bit of that praise is due to TDK for being used as an influence on Skyfall. That has to be a first, too. Has a comic book movie ever influenced a major franchise outside of it's genre before?
That's cos TDK is a real masterpiece. The real greats influence other directors like that.

A fantastic Bond film and a great film in general.

In all honesty, this was probably the most satisfying film I've seen this year. Simply excellent. And yes, there are similarities to The Dark Knight, but they certainly aren't what makes the movie so excellent. This is the Bond film I was waiting for after Casino Royale. Skyfall delivers.
Quoted for truth.

Yup. Masterpiece and Rises don't go in the same sentence.
