  • Excerpt: In 1967, producer Charles Feldman had the urge to make a James Bond film. In the early days before Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman were in the picture, Ian Fleming’s first Bond title had been sold to Feldman for a substantial sum. The bad news that it would take fifteen years to make it to the big screen. By that point, five Bond movies were already out and there seem to be no hope to make an alternate Bond picture.

  • Excerpt: It’s been a few years since the last James Bond installment and the main member of the cast has once again been re-formatted with a newer, younger face and he’s a blonde to boot! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past year, you’ll know that the veneer of Pierce Brosnan has been replaced with the grit of Daniel Craig. This is, of course, a natural progression with a franchise like James Bond.

  • Excerpt: An international terrorism financier known only as Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) has just lost $100 million dollars of his clients' money, which is certain to shorten his life expectancy considerably if he doesn't find some way to make up the losses very quickly. To that end he enters a high, high stakes poker game at the fashionable Casino Royale in Montenegro.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: James Bond is back. Daniel Craig truly has defied the punters and emerged as -- yes, wait for it -- the best Bond since Sean Connery. 'Casino Royale' is a wonderful reboot for the venerable franchise, and only makes me long for future installments with Craig. This Blu-ray release is a bit more problematic. I liked the solid enough transfer, but I didn't love it. I also enjoyed the extras, though it seems pretty clear Sony will double-dip this one someday.

  • Excerpt: The most significant shot in Casino Royale —the latest revamp of the James Bond franchise—comes early, while new Bond Daniel Craig is getting his Parkour on and hopping from beam to beam at a construction site in pursuit of a terrorist bomber. When Craig severs a cable so he can rise up on a pulley, there's an insignificant insert shot of the pipes Craig cut loose, now tumbling on the ground. But it's only insignificant from a plot perspective.

  • Conclusion: Contrary to pre-release nay-sayers, Daniel Craig has done more with James Bond in one film than some previous stars have in multiple reprises. This is terrific stuff, again positioning 007 as the action franchise to beat.

  • Excerpt: Jag kände mig en smula förvånad när jag fann mig själv sittandes i en biosalong för en Bond-films skull. Det har nog aldrig hänt förut och jag vet inte riktigt vad jag tänkte som gjorde att jag också hamnade här. Irriterande medbiobesökare som ska hålla på att låta hela tiden brukar vara vanliga på storfilmer och så även denna gång. Tack och lov så slutade jag snart att tänka på dem när filmen väl drog igång.

  • Summary: Casino Royale är en av de starkaste Bond-filmerna hittills och ger serien en välbehövlig nystart, mycket tack vare huvudpersonens Daniel Craigs utstrålning. Här klassar han ut övriga actionhjältar totalt, han är en cool agent som helt klart sopar banan med herrarna Cruise och Damon i agentfacket. Utgåvan har bra ljud och bild samt ett knippe genomtänkta men inte helt fräscha bonusinslag.

  • Conclusion: Ian Flemings romanspion har genom åren utvecklats till en fullskalig institution med allt vad det innebär av anrikhet och tradition. Dessvärre har det även inneburit en mossväxande konservatism som blivit allt mer tydlig och Bond som fenomen har stundtals varit svårt att ta på allvar. Med andra ord var det läge för det tunga förnyelseartilleriet och i Casino Royale nödinkallade man en dubbel vitamininjektion.
