Cool origin for Mr. Bond. I think this is one of the smartly written James Bond flicks. It's a little predictable knowing the nature of the movie, but it's still a great film to watch. I'm not saying that this is the best James Bond film ever... but it does place high on my list at least. I actually think that James Bond movies are trying to outdo each other. It started with Goldeneye, and with the exception of Tomorrow Never Dies, all the films after it got better and better.

Casino Royale is basically about the first outing of James as a 007 agent. In this adventure, he has to catch terrorist financier Le Chiffre, and the only way to do that is to win a high stakes poker game in Casino Royale in Montenegro. I'm going to be vague about the story as there are twists in the film... every 30 minutes...

If you're used to watching these types of movies, then you'll know what happens... Predictable as it is, I'm not saying that the film sucks... They're all predictable, but they all occur brilliantly... there were a lot of well-executed fight scenes... It's not boring. i personally love the opening act wherein James chased a bomber all throughout the construction sitesof somewhere in Africa... It was inhuman, but it is cool...

People say that Daniel Craig is the ugliest James Bond... I won't comment, but the looks definitely did not matter, as I believe that he did perform extremely well as the suave British spy... And he's deadly serious in this movie... Not the funny Bond, but still has that sense of humor...

Anyway, I like the film... That's about all I can say.

Rating: 8.5/10
