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

  • 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

FilmCrave
15 April 2012
  • 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...

Casino Royale review

FilmCrave
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The films consists of Daniel Craig (an egoistic but humane James Bond), Eva Green (Vesper Lynd, the witty and attractive agent from Treasury), Mads Mikkelsen (A poker aficionado banker who funds terrorists, Le Chiffre) and the legendary Judi Dench (the passionate Head of MI6, M). Like other Bond films, James is given missions to accomplish. Unfortunately we don’t see the suave manner of completing a task assigned to him.

Cut it some slack

  • Excerpt: I saw this film first run when I was a teenager. Of course it was a disappointment when compared to the real 007 movies (but they were soon to match the silliness of this one). I bought the soundtrack LP and wore it out. What a masterpiece! I recall being outraged when Dr. Doolittle won for best score that year. Who the hell remembers the Dr. Doolittle score today? Sure, the film is a mess. It IS "psychedelic". Chaos reigns, but the zeitgeist is all over this thing.

Another way of looking at Casino Royale

  • Excerpt: There is a terrific essay on Casino Royale that could help "lovers of 007/haters of this film", if not learn to like it, certainly put it in a more reasonable or realistic context: http://www.brightlightsfilm.com/28/casinoroyale1.html But if one must keep thinking of this as a bad 007 film, and the action sequences (as close as it gets to the official series) are tedious at times (the never-ending grouse hunt in particular), nothing in this film is as anti-007 as the...

  • Summary: There is very little in this movie that doesn't impress, from the opening title sequence to the witty repartee, the characters and the great job of casting them, the clothes, the cards and the cars (especially when they flip 7 times) The torture scene was way too much, but that is my only complaint. The movie is so smart, it is elevated above a mere action flick. I rewatched it immediately.

  • Summary: I was actually really surprised. Daniel Craig was an amazing Bond and Eva Green to me was one of the best Bond girls. The plot was actually really good and believable. The acting was great. The only problems I have with the movie is that its a prequil but the technoligy was far better then the other films and M looks older. But once you get past those details this movie was great.
