Director: Martin Campbell

Writer: Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Paul Haggis

Stars: Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen

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.

Reviews


  • Paul Byrnes (Sidney Morning Herald)

    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.

  • Jake Wilson (The Age)

    Basically, Craig's Bond is a new and individual creation.

  • Christopher Orr (The Atlantic)

    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...

  • Wendy Ide (Times (UK))

    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...
