Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
Director: Martin Campbell
Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: a caustic, haunted, intense reinvention of 007.
Craig brings beef, biff and a slightly lonely dimension to the character. He's a fine actor and he has some of the working-class bile of the young Michael Caine. A new James Bond has certainly arrived.
Basically, Craig's Bond is a new and individual creation.
Unlike recent Bonds, whose kills had no more weight than the one-liners that generally accompanied them, Craig's tend to be intimate, bloody, and devoid of glamour. | Full Review...
Casino Royale takes us back to basics. To a leaner production and to a Bond who looks like he can do serious damage | Full Review...
