Equal to the James Bond films of Sean Connery's time, and this is from someone who loved Sean Connery as Bond. Daniel Craig is absolutely amazing and a far different Bond than what we've seen before. The script is clever, the dialog is witty, the plot is superb, the action is exciting without being stupid like the previous two Bond films. This is a must see.

I'm late to the Craig iteration but I think I prefer sillier Bonds. Here they gritty him up by turning him into an emotionally damaged yet professionally hardened loose cannon who breaks the rules but gets results and...okay he's more like every 80's cop but dammit he's the best we've got! You're on thin ice McBond, now turn in your badge and go save the queen! You're a national hero and a disgrace to the force!

This attempted reboot at the James Bond franchise trades Bond's signature hollow unrealism for a dose of attempted modernity and character. While at times it works, Casino Royale tries too hard at not being a Bond flick to ever succeed as one. Most notably, the film's third act is a nonsensical mess that fits nowhere with the prior 100 minutes. Why do you people like this shit?

It's not going too far to call the early chase scenes the strongest extended action sequence in the entire franchise. Which Campbell reignites for the second time. The first hour is tremendous, but the poker tournament in the middle section is thoroughly uninteresting, and everything that comes after it is completely useless.

Anyone who thought Daniel Craig couldn't pull off this incarnation of Bond (especially those polluting the internet with websites, blogs, and petitions against the Blond Bond decision) must've been kicking themselves after eventually seeing this. Craig is a hugely exceptional action star here, appearing multi-layered, yet fierce and supports a very strong screen presence. The film around him is excellent, featuring many great action scenes, including an enthralling and intense card game.

Casino Royale is, by far, the best Bond movie to date. The Bond franchise, since Pierce was involved, turned into a big commercial for whatever products they were shilling for, as well as a steady stream of lame one liners. This finally has strong character development and believable action sequences and Daniel Craig is by far the best man to play Bond since Connery.

The humor, the look, the action, the story, and Daniel Craig are so incredible and new that Casino Royale makes all of the other Bond movies seem indestinguishable from one another. Like what High Noon did to westerns, and well, Batman Begins did to Batman movies, Casino Royale has perfectly recreated Bond. Be sure to watch as many of the old Bonds before you see this, because it'll be hard to go back to them afterward. Awesome!

Best Bond movie ever - too bad about the girl! Craig is the perfect choice for this reboot, instilling Bond with an edgier feel, whilst maintaining the essence of his cool. This Bond is violent and vulnerable. Campbell has picked up a trick or two from, say, the Bourne franchise, which rubs off nicely on the action sequences. It's not perfect, however, with one set piece too many, and Eva Green as the worst bond girl, since that chick who used to be a dude.

Surprisingly thi Bond is very very good! Surprisingly because it is not Bond movie after all. The absence of hi-tech stuff, saving world in last 5 min and invulnerability is gone and reality, naturalism and explicit violence represented by lot of visible blood is on the move. Daniel Craig is cool and believable, Eva Green is beautiful and Mads Mikkelsen is slimy. The opening song is bitchin good!

An amazing and complete re-invention of the once great but tiring Bond genre. The brave step of bringing Bond into the modern world is done with electrifying pace, a pulsating opening chase sequence, on foot, and an altogether more clinical James. The cheese, double entendre and gadgets have been toned down but the mandatory evil villain, stunning women and Bond charm remain making this the perfect mix of classic Bond and modern film.

This is by far the most touching and dramatic of all the Bond films, and this films, more than any other, actually fully shapes and develops Bond's character to make him sympathetic as well as likable. Daniel Craig is simply awesome in the role, providing a hardened, intense, haunted Bond that hasn't really been seen since Connery. The action scenes are excellent too, particularly the opening one.

Casino Royale is a solid film, whether or not it is part of the James Bond franchise. Daniel Craig's portrayal of the lead is cold, calculating and most importantly, real. The film feels fresh when compared to the previous installments, and it is an excellent way to reboot the franchise. It has emotional connections, explosive and entertaining action scenes, as well as one of the most suspenseful poker games I've seen, real or not.

Completely overpraised. Yes, this Bond hews closely 2 the novel's colder, one-liner-free version (so did Dalton's first outing btw), but the film itself is still standard operating procedure. It's easy 2 ignore Bond falls in love in this film given how connect-the-dots the rest of the narrative is. So formulaic the final setpiece is a meeting at some Mediterranean ruins scheduled 4 demolition! Wonder if that's coming down around his ears at the last minute? & P.S.: poker just ain't that gripping

Casino Royale is a great Bond movie. Good villain, good girl, good action, and everything else that makes a good Bond movie. This new Bond is grittier than others, this new movie had to up the ante in an action genre that has gotten grittier over the years; a la Jason Bourne. Daniel Craig is a good bond. He isn't as cheeky as others but he is more brutal and pained than others. This is a Bond movie for people who want to see Bond in pain, not the happy-go-lucky Bond of the Brosnan days.

The greatest action flick of all time in my opinion. Daniel Craig is simply awesome as a young Bond. Not only do we witness his development into the calm, cool, and collected 007 we're all familiar with, but it's a very realistic and believable transition. He learns the responsibility that comes with being a spy and it's a truly tragic, painful growing experience for the young agent. Brilliant cinematography, perfect casting, and awesomely-timed writing make for the best Bond ever.

(after repeat viewings) As a form of pure entertainment from start to finish, it may just take the cake. Call it the Martin Campell-effect, who literally 'defibrillates' the franchise with a globe-trotting adventure that is equal parts exciting and emotionally engaging. The latter element may just make Goldeneye the definitive Bond film, as the typical Bond girl role is somewhat downplayed as a damsel in distress/love interest, despite a great performance and from everyone else for that matter.

James Bond reborn. Daniel Craig was an amazing James Bond in this series reboot. Not only was the action very fast and hard hitting but Craig adds more depth to the character of Bond. The biggest negative of this movie is that it is very long and at times felt like it had multiple endings until the credits finally start rolling. Still, I'm willing to overlook the length because the film was a lot of fun. The poker scene is my favorite and Eva Green is one of the best Bond girls out there.

The best Bond film of the modern era by a country mile. The bloated cliche of the later Brosnan films is replaced with everything Bond (as both a character and a franchise) can and should be - beautiful, brutal, exhilerating, tragic, intoxicating, romantic, unforgiving, intelligent, blunt. Armed with dark romance in its heart, this violent outing might be the best action-thriller of the 21st century so far.

much better than expected, a true spy movie. Isn't full of explosions like Brosnan movies, not to mention that Craig was a decent Bond, contrary to the critiques.

This is just what you would expect from a Bond film cars, women, a cool headed bad guy and action scenes. This is proberly the first time since Her Majesty's Secret Service that we have seen Bonds emotional side. This is a good adaption that does the book justice. You do reallyu believe this Bond will kill you. Saying that there was just something not quite right with the feel of the film that stopped it from being a proper bond film

it is about time bond has had a face lift, apparantly hollywood thought we would be satisfied with the same ideas, style, writing for about 40 years, then this came and completely changed the status quo for bond movies. the reinvention done here could only be bested by superior writing and an introduction of standout characters that hopefully will come in the next couple bond movies.

After having now watched the previous 20 Bond films in the past few weeks, it remarkable how this film managed to take the series in a new direction (even if feels like it has shades of Dalton).

This is a Bond movie the way it should be. No corny jokes, no fantastically unrealistic gadgets. If they were taking their cues from the Bourne movies, they were quick and smart studies.

Great for a Bond movie, because there hasn't been an even decent Bond flick since Goldeneye. But this movie tries to do what Batman Begins did successfullly; make the Bond character well-rounded by delivering us the transition from the man to the myth. The movie wanted us to believe that Bond had totally changed, but he was still the same person. Yet in one scene he's a reckless agent killing a handful of people, and the next he's ready to quit his job and throw pillows at his girlfriend.

Daniel Craig has the potential to make a great 007, but the material he was given in Casino Royale was over-emphisised and very predictable. It would have worked in another agent series, but for 007 average is simply not good enough. The new style of Bond isn't up to my tastes either, especially seeing as the character is no longer likeable. His arrogant attitude and frankly didn't make me feel sympathetic for him in the slightest. More realistic, but when has Bond ever been about realism?

What a great return for the Bond series. Daniel Craig might be the best one. Plus, it had a lot of poker which scores points with me. For some people, that might lose them, because poker can at times be slow and difficult to watch, but in the context of Bond's character, it went off so well. Vesper might be my favorite Bond girl.

Well, a Fleming-perfect James Bond had already been done with Timothy Dalton's essaying of the character, so that is hardly new; however, I can't recall any of the films getting as close to the gritty weariness of the novels as this one. The only problem is it doesn't quite differentiate itself from its competition. Craig is a good Bond, but in this film he seems to be just an anglo answer to Jason Bourne.

Daniel Craig brings it as a new, grittier, caustic breed of Bond, and the movie retains the gunplay, the chases, the international espionage, the exotic locations, the beautiful women, the casinos, and the brassy music and style we ask for from the franchise in spades - only repackaged with a streamlined, more realistic plot, subtler humor, a brutal new edge, and some gorgeous visuals. Bond is back, baby, and he's brought the spirit of Ian Fleming with him. (Ytadel's series ranking: #4 of 24)

I rewatched this in anticipation of viewing Skyfall, and I have to say, I was a bit stingy with my first score of 85. This movie to me is a pitch perfect example of a flawlessly executed spy thriller, not to mention a Bond movie. The pieces all fall together so awesomely, the action is flawlessly choreographed and purposeful, and the storytelling is economical, taking full advantage of the movie medium. This, my friends, is one case where a franchise reboot succeeds wildly! See my full review.

I don't know if it's the best "Bond movie", but it's certainly the best movie with Bond... Following suit after Batman Begins, the writers, along with Campbell's direction, manage to give characterization to a totally inhuman icon. As a kid you no longer only think he's cool, you actually know the guy, despite his past being just as mysterious as it's ever been. That's no easy feat. Great villain, great story, but maybe a little too exhausting of a final act.

A lot's been made of the new gritty, darker Bond. Now I'll be the first to admit I am no fan of past Bond films, but was intrigued by the concept of this movie. I like Craig, he makes a good Bond, & I like the sultry atmosphere & charisma of this film. However I just cannot buy into the general wankfest that surrounds this movie. The plot is average, the script dire & the relationship between Bond & his "Bond Girl" flat & tedious. The fucking poker scene is endless also.

I'd like to see Craig lighten up a little more, and some of the poker stuff was silly, but what won me over was the dynamite chase sequence near the beginning; without a doubt one of the best chases I've ever seen. The other action scenes in the movie were satisfying, but paled in comparison to such an exhiliratingly choreographed chase. The movie avoided the convoluted plotting of some of the previous entries... the story was simple enough to follow, but complex enough to stay interesting.

This is easily the best Bond flick in recent memory. They drop a lot of the gimmicky special effects, cliche villains and other tired Bond props (notice the near total lack of special gizmos - all for the better, I promise!) to create an extremely fresh and gritty film that feels like no other Bond, yet somehow still fits in. Daniel Craig, although not as smooth as some past 007's, is somewhat brutish, but is still believable as a Bond who's still wet behind the ears and rough around the edges.

Nothing that makes Bond Bond is found here. There's no humor in the entire film and there's only one great action scene in the beginning but after that there's nothing. The poker scenes eventually turn into the ending of Rounders and have zero tension. The Bond girl is emotionally weak and the villain is one of the worst in Bond history. It eventually morphs into a romance movie which was gruesome to watch. Craig's portrayal of Bond is completely wrong which sucks cause I typically love his work

He isnt perfect with karate and ninja moves, he gives the bad guys a good ole fashion ass wooping like your average american brute, even though he is british. I also love the way that the movie makes you forget that some bond girls cant be trusted.
