  • Summary: A total surprise. Not only is this a great Bond movie, it may very well be the best Bond movie. Great film.

  • Summary: Loved the stunts, loved the theme song, but did not love the overall scenario of the movie itself. A long boring card game in the middle of the movie and the action scenes are mostly dealt with chasing one enemy at a time. I expect more excitement and the gadgets this time but there's nothing more than just some pointless scenes.

  • Summary: Simply the best Bond of all times. Also if Daniel Craig isn't the best actor I could imagine for this role, this is subordinate because of the great supporting actors. Eva Green is fetchingly good and Mads Mikkelsen as the antagonist is also very well played. The whole film consists of so much rememberable action scenes, every single one is just awesome!

  • Summary: There is quite a lot of action before things focus on the Casino; all of this is well done and features much of the stunt work in the film. I have to say it does appear to get a little lost once the main focus of the film is established. Once we do get there the scenes in and around the Casino are quite compelling and it is here that we actually get a feeling for how Daniel Craig portrays Bond.

  • Summary: Casino Royale is one of the most perfect Bond films out there, and I include the previous entries into the franchise in this statement. It has memorable characters, explosive action (including an opening chase scene that shows that the franchise is in no way slowing down,) a relevant plot, and a chilling villain. It also ushers in the Daniel Craig era of a new, more serious and ruthless Bond.

"Casino Royale" by Yojimbo

  • Excerpt: I have to start by saying I thought the previous film was awful. It was like a cheeseball pastiche of all the worst elements of the worst Bond films; overly formulaic with ludicrous gadgetry, lame innuendo and cliched, two dimensional characters. Casino Royale is similar in that it also takes a lot of cues from the previous films (especially from Russia with Love and On Her Majesty's Secret Service), except it takes all of the BEST elements of the BEST Bonds and distills...

  • Summary: The movie is a revolution to the Bond franchise. Mark Campbell presents to the audience that James Bond is not a hero who kills the bad guys and gets laid with girls using his gadgets and slick words. Using Daniel Craig, he presents a Bond that actually gets hurt and looses the ones he love. Through this change of portrayal, Bond has become a stronger character and a worthy franchise to watch. Kudos Campbell (and you too Craig)!!!

  • Summary: The plot was alright. It was sometimes slow. The choreography in the fight scenes was brilliant. The movie overall was ordinary. The only thing that stood out were the fight scenes. However, the rest of the movie was not as good as I had hoped. I would skip this movie unless you are a die hard Bond fan. It was entertaining to a certain degree.
