    "The name is Motherfucker. Reckless, Arrogant Motherfucker."

    A terrific subversion and rebirth of a legendary character. Stupidly complained about SKYFALL not going for it in being a Bond character piece before watching this. Stupid, stupid Kevin.

    This certainly confirms my lack of interest in Daniel Craig's Bond - nowhere near as good as such actors as Connery or Moore, he doesn't even look the part. A very average film overall

    5 stars for eva green's performance/character in this movie/ daniel craig's wardrobe and frequent lack thereof/ beautiful people lounging around on beautiful beaches / acknowledgement of how archetypal masculinity is created by hellish and unenviable situations and loss of empathy. 0 stars for weird endorsement of the soulless masculinity / almost an hour of it being just dudes playing poker.

    Blu-ray: This movie gets better every time I see it. And it was pretty damn good the first time I saw it.

    The James Bond franchise gets rebooted in Casino Royale. It's Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel. It's also James Bond's first adventure as a Double 0 secret agent. Casino Royale is a return to basics film. Daniel Craig is young. His body is hard. Jokes are definitely out. Torture is in. A high roller poker game takes up a great deal of screen time. Boredom could result, but it doesn't. Exciting things happen during the game breaks, including Bond reviving…

    Mal kein typischer Bond, aber dafür sicher einer der besten und v.a. realistischten. Hoffentlich kann man diesen Film als Neubeginn der Serie sehen!

    Im Nachhinein ist es doch witzig, wie Daniel Craig im Vorfeld von den Medien und den Bond-Fans kleingeredet wurde. Und dann spielt er zusammen mit Mikkelsen mal ganz locker aus der Hüfte alles an die Wand.

    A perfect reboot of Bond or the new generation. Craig's grittiness resonates perfectly with society today. The slow burning plot is a welcome change in an era where over the top action has dominated.

    Almost eight years on, Casino Royale is essentially the template for how to reboot a franchise the right way, offering a fresh and invigorating take on the Bond franchise. After reaching new levels of embarrassment with the late period Roger Moore entries, and a lull during the Dalton/Brosnan era, agent 007 was in desperate need of a makeover. From the opening scene, new Bond recruit Daniel Craig proves the man for the job. Craig superbly reimagines the character with a show of respect for the icon’s legacy, while simultaneously offering a refreshingly modern spin on the classic secret service agent.
