I'm still chewing on this. There are parts I really enjoyed, and parts I absolutely despised. I imagine that's by design, but it was still hard for me to get behind it. I'll say this though: Beautifully shot, loved the sound and music, and Ryan Gosling did a great job. That first chase scene was a sight to behold.
Casino Royale ushers in a decidedly new era of Bond. He's rough around the edges, fights dirty, and doesn't always, or should I say rarely, has the upper hand. His interactions with Vesper (who is absolutely amazing) are as charming as they are disarming: "There are dinner jackets and dinner jackets; this is the latter." Wow.
One of best Bond films yet.
