    Casino Royale is the reboot, as it were, of the Bond franchise, and also introducing Daniel Craig for the first time in the part.

    The film opens with a beautifully shot black and white sequence where Bond earns the two kills needed to get his 00 license, before the both traditional and very much newly thought out intro sequence. And if there is one thing that resounds through this hwole movie, it's the blend between traditional Bond, and the taking…

    Fantastic reboot to the James Bond franchise but man if this movie doesn't just peter out after Mads leaves.

    The first hour of Casino Royale is probably the highest concentration of action and "Bond being Bond" scenes in the entire series. It's all expertly done and I love it. It's when the focus shifts to the poker game that the film starts to lose me. There's just too much emphasis placed on it and it hangs like a cloud over the rest of the movie.

    Quaint as it seems now, I think the Texas Hold ‘Em poker fad of…

    Casino Royale is the reinvention of James Bond and quite possibly the best out of all them. An endlessly exciting and effortlessly cool film with some of the most thrilling action sequences ever put to film.

    Daniel Craig meu Bond favorito. Impecável na ação, elegante, frágil, inteligente. Meu filme favorito da franquia, cheio de reviravoltas, cenas impossíveis impecavelmente executadas e uma Bond Girl de altíssimo nível, cheia de personalidade. Para ficar perfeito, faltou apenas um vilão mais marcante.

    SKYFALL is good, but CASINO ROYALE is a perfect Bond, and one of the best action-thrillers period. Craig is terrific, mixing the snark and professionalism of Bond at optimal levels, and the expected glitz and glamour only increase the scope instead of being the main course. And the poker scenes, while long, are fascinating character moments that most action films never dream of including. Eva Green is also one of the best Bond girls, one who only increases in facination on multiple viewings. A great Bond because it is a great film.

    Solid acting and great direction cannot salvage a completely unsatisfying plot.

    Uma nova abordagem foi dada a serie do agente mais famoso do mundo: 007 ou James Bond. O anterior Um Novo Dia Para Morrer, foi uma grande decepção, então foi decidido um novo tipo de filme, e com novos atores. Desta vez Daniel Craig dá vida ao agente, e se o filme não foi grandes coisas, pelo menos foi um bom filme.

    James Bond (Daniel Craig) enfrentará o vilão russo Le Chiffre, visando principalmente quebrar a banca de seu cassino…

    Sure, I could go on about how brilliant the reboot of the Bond franchise is with Daniel Craig and Dench, but it's all been said before. I will say that this is exactly what the franchise needed; a more grounded reality, stepping away from the gadgets, actual tension.

    What I think is sometimes forgotten is the brilliance of bringing back Martin Campbell to direct. He already gave the franchise a shot in the arm when he directed Pierce Brosnan's first…
