Overview

Actor Daniel Craig assumes the role formerly occupied by such screen greats as Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Timothy Dalton to set out on the character's very first 007 mission. James Bond has earned his "00" status by masterfully executing a pair of death-defying professional assassinations. Now assigned the task of traveling to Madagascar to spy on notorious terrorist Mollaka Sebastien Foucan for his maiden voyage as a 007 agent, Bond boldly goes against MI6 policy to launch an independent investigation that finds him traversing the Bahamas in search of Mollaka's notoriously elusive terror cell. Subsequently led into the company of the mysterious Dimitrios Simon Abkarian and his exotic girlfriend, Solange Caterina Murino, Bond soon realizes that he is closer than ever to locating well-guarded terrorist financier Le Chiffre Mads Mikkelsen, the man who has personally bankrolled some of the most prevalent terrorist organizations on the planet. When Bond learns that Le Chiffre is planning to partake in an upcoming high-stakes poker game to be played at Montenegro's Le Casino Royale and use the winnings to establish his financial grip on the globe, M Judi Dench assigns beguiling agent Vesper Eva Green the task of watching over the fledgling agent as he plays against Le Chiffre in a covert attempt to destroy the nefarious gambler's well-established monetary stronghold in the underworld once and for all. Bond will need more than his legendary gambling skills in order to win this dangerous game, though, and after allying himself with local MI6 field agent Mathis Giancarlo Giannini and CIA operative Felix Leiter Jeffrey Wright, the endlessly suave super-spy puts on his poker face for a high-stakes game of cards in which the stakes are not measured in dollars, but human lives.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
As both a kick start to the James Bond series and a throwback to the original vision of Ian Fleming's super-spy, 2006's Casino Royale is a sumptuous feast of action, humor, and dramatics, the likes of which Bond audiences have not witnessed in some time. While nearly every fan of the series has his or her own favorite actor in the lead role, there's no denying that -- despite the early criticism -- Daniel Craig irrefutably nails his acting assignment with an assured performance that's equally magnetic in excitement and attraction levels. And while much was made of the stripping down of 007, most of what people love about the character is still there in one form or another. From the cocky looks to the crooked crooks, there's no doubt this is a Bond film through and through. As far as the action goes, director Martin Campbell takes a note from international cinema with the film's first big chase sequence, echoing the free-running sequences in District B13 as he deftly takes the awe-inspiring foot chase to a new, dizzying level. Backing up the whole ride is a solid script that throws viewers for a few loops along the way to the somewhat expected climax, which finds Bond hardened in his "00" status and, for the first time in a long stretch of the series' history, sets up a formidable villainous group for him to go up against in future installments. To put it in Hollywood terms, Casino Royale succeeds because of its skillful reinterpretation of what has attracted audiences to the character for decades now, although it is not without fault. First off, Chris Cornell's opening theme is completely misguided in its alterna-rock aesthetics, even if it's padded nicely by David Arnold's slick orchestration. Also this 144-minute behemoth is just long enough for most audiences to get antsy as 007 finds love in a string of scenes that could have easily been whittled down in the script stage. Despite these hiccups, the franchise is livelier than ever with this revamp. This might be a grittier Bond full of far more emotions than gadgets, but it's hard not to be excited when the full-blown theme emerges at the end, promising more fantastic adventures to come.

    Holding His Own With Connery

    Daniel Craig makes Bond a thinking feeling person as well as tough and resourceful. Connery certainly had the timing and talent, but his Bond became a cardboard character and only Connery's considerable looks and talent made those movies tolerable and some enjoyable.

    Sorry, but Craig is an awful James Bond. Short, ugly, classless

    Sorry, but Craig is an awful James Bond. Short, ugly, classless. Film is too long for what it has to say and there is no reason for an 'origin' story as Fleming never did one, either.

    Pretty good

    While I'm not a fan of the Bond movies, this one I can make an exception. It really is pretty good. Craig did a good job.

    Bond Begins Anew

    I always liked Bond in theory. The concept of a womanizing, extremely driven, suave secret agent is compelling, but in actual practice the movies never held my interest. Because the aforementioned character didn't strike me as so fascinating when he's portrayed as an infallible cartoon character, and played by actors who looked more like Sears cataloh models than men of action.

    I wasn't asking for complete hardcore and bitter reality, this is escapism after all. Just a dose of gravity, and a Bond who I could buy as a tough guy. With Casino Royale, I got the whammy. Big Time.

    Much has been said about Craig, and I don't have much to add. What I'm here to say: If you thought you knew Bond, you might be in for an awakening, here. Give it a shot.

    This movie is a masterpiece, so I won't talk in sentences.
    Craig- Best Bond ever
    Green- Good acting
    Dench- no one else can be 'M' but her
    Le Chifre guy- best Bond villain is the past decade

    Locations- superb
    Screenplay- Mind-blowing
    Direction- wow
    Action- Mouth-opening (there is parkour in the beginning!)
    Story- mind boggling but awesome
    My fave Bond film

    And I thought Sean Connery couldn't be beaten

    My husband and I remember when the first Bond movies came out. We have always thought Sean C was the best Bond, until we saw Casino Royale. Great stunts, real emotional complexity, and definitely the most "physical" Bond for men who like action and women who don't! The second movie was a real disappointment. Terrible script and dialogue. We are hoping Daniel Craig will be given a great script again like Casino Royale and we will definitely give him a third chance. Enjoy this movie!

    Best James Bond film since.....no other!!! NUF CED!!!

    Casino Royale will thrill you! Originally I was scepticale of Daniel Craig. But I misjudged him. He is fantastic! Better than Timothy Dalton. Better than Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, and George Lazenby! He will thrill you. Vesper Lynd is as sexy as possible, nearing the sexyness of Honey Ryder! Le Chriffe is dark, mysterious, and as fantastic as Blofeld. And that's hard to come by. Of course, Judi Dench was magnificent as M. Miss Moneypenny wasn't missed. She was replaced by a man named Villiers (no sexual content between him and 007). Sadly, this movie lacked one thing. The gadget master. Q. John Cleese wasn't made for the part in D.A.D, since Desmond Llwelyn was irreplaceible. Casino Royale was magnificent!! WATCH IT! Then see Quantum of Solace, a direct follow up.

    Casino Royale

    Finally! Someone(Daniel Craig) playing James Bond as he is written in the books. Daniel Craig is the consummate James Bond- 007. And, Judi Dench is the consummate M. To be fair, the other actors didn't have this excellent script & direction. The chemistry between James & Vesper was hot. Re-read the book after seeing the movie. Both are excellent. <BR/> This movie has everything a James Bond fan (or any movie-goer wants): action, love, anguish, humor, & sexy, sexy Daniel Craig. Bond has for 55 yrs. been the hero with a dark, cold side. He's an assassin. Not some smarmy, flippant character as he had been portrayed up until now. He takes a lickin' & keeps on tickin'. This is a must-see movie. Please treat yourself as well to Daniel's other movies.

    The Best Bond since &quot Goldfinger&quot !!

    I don't usually make comments about other reviewers, but the previous review is way off base. I am old enough to have seen most of the Bond films in the theatre. Only a few Connery films are better. Daniel Craig isn't stiff he's icy cold, a killer for Queen and country. It is the new beginning of the Bond mytho's. In fact, did anyone else notice that the Bond theme didn't play until the end of the film as he introduces himself as &quot Bond, James Bond&quot . The chase scene in the building site is crazy good. The banter between Bond and Vesper Lynn is funny. The next movie starts exactly where this one ends with Mr. White.
