Casino Royale

A Movie ReelCasino Royale: 7 out of 10.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my first James Bond film. It was my wife's first James Bond film as well, so last night two 30-something year olds sat down for their first taste of 007 action.

It was a little long, but pretty good overall. Daniel Craig played a pretty cool cat and Judi Dench was great as usual. I don't have a frame of reference, but I'd guess this was James Bond at his most sensitive. The dude fell hard.

Will I go back and visit previous instalments of the James Bond franchise? Probably not, but I'm glad I finally popped my 007 cherry.

I've been a fan of 007 since I was a kid, and Daniel Craig was a breath of fresh air. Nice to see the series going back to it's gritty roots instead of the glossy sci-fi schlock it turned into with Pierce Brosnan.

Have a look at the first 3 Sean Connery Bonds. They are pretty good. The rest ? They get worse as it goes along. Live and let Die is actually not bad Great chase scene in the everglades.
