Casino Royale - REVIEW

Film of the Day #160/ 300

Casino Royale isn't simply the best Bond film in years. It is one of the best Bond films ever. Expertly directed by Martin Campbell, Casino Royale revives, rejuvenates and refreshes the 007 series, proving the continuing viability of Fleming's creation 50 years after his inception. Gritty and thrilling, Casino Royale has it all - action, glamour, spectacular locations and a new Bond that is above all, vulnerable. Daniel Craig’s debut portrayal as 007 is marvelous; showing a depth and grit of character that easily makes him the most realistic Bond since Sean Connery. Casino Royale has a license to thrill that leave you happily shaken and stirred. This is easily one of my favourite movies of all time.
