Review: Casino Royale



Bond movies are something I really look forward to every few years. And this movie was nothing short of spectacular. They have taken the Bond franchise and revitalized it with Casino Royale, after seeing the movie I think that Daniel Craig was the perfect choice to be James Bond. He plays the lone reckless agent with some brains in the mix quiet well. I also think they could not have timed the movie any better for Casino Royale since Texas Holdem Poker has taken off greatly over the past 4 years, with interest in sites like at all time highs. So this part of the movie was found to be extremely intriguing on its own because there seemed to be higher stakes then just the money. What’s great is that you are getting the raw storyline without too much gadgets or gimmicks, one thing pulls another in this story and they are all connected. You get to see the bare bones version of Bond and how he turned into the Agent that he is, and I think the Bond Girls fit their roles perfectly. Each Bond Girl was perfect in their own way and very attractive, they added to the story and didn’t distract you from it. The fantastic part of it was seeing how Bond and the Villains danced around each and other and played mind games, and what underlying story was motivating them. You were consistently being stimulated with new information and more action. At the end of the movie you’re satisfied but yet the story hasn’t finish and Bond has more to do and we shall only see this in the upcoming movies over the next few years. They have broken every stereotypical Bond trait and action in this movie, but they have also kept true to the Bond nature and that is what I loved about the movie.

  1. I was lucky enough to have an evening off in England over Christmas to see this in a UK cinema (i.e. no random censorship or idiots on mobile phones).

    Hands down the best Bond movie ever, and probably one of the best films I’ve seen all year.

    Well to be true I’m not even close to be a Bond fan! And I could say I’m really happy that my husband doesn’t like them that much either, or I think I’ll be having a lot of probs. with him (if you know what I mean?)!
    My mum has the whole collection though!! And I think she have seen each one in the movies too!
    So I did grow up with them and we (me & my man) did watch them all (BUT NOT IN THE MOVIES!).

  5. i agree.. i loved how this bond movie wasnt so ‘far fetched’ … and that rope/chair scene (dont want to give anything away) was SOMETHING ELSE!!!

    it was nice to see bond as a ‘guy’ for once and not a miracle ‘cold hearted’ worker

  6. Am I blind or is this post written backwards? as in weirdly?!

  7. Woah now it got fixed WEIRD! TOTALLY WEIRD!

  8. moocherx: I agree with you 100%! Fantastic movie, I left the movie theater happy as hell!

    dimplez: hehehehe! From VJ to Bond girl! I like that! Any other thoughts you want to share please do! :)

    holla: the first girl was hot, and this bond girl was a real women, not just a hot women that you see. So it isnt just about looks!

    Nora: You should see them in the movies! Its one hell of an experience! I couldn’t get enough! I was really loving it, and getting pulled in! Fantastic!

    MSB: Your right on the spot! I just dont want to give anything away either!

    Jacqui: loooool! Dont worry work is getting to you! hehehehe
