Casino Royale (2006)



Critic Consensus: Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: a caustic, haunted, intense reinvention of 007.

Bond as a human being? Who'd'a'thunk?

Casino Royale has the answers to all my complaints about the 45-year-old James Bond series, and some I hadn't even thought of.

I hope Craig finds more moments like that in Bond. And I hope he gets to wear that tuxedo again and again and again.

I consider Daniel Craig to be the most effective and appealing of the six actors who have played 007, and that includes even Sean Connery.

GOLDFINGER? SHMOLDFINGER! CASINO ROYALE is the best James Bond movie to date. Not only that, but it is also one of the best action movies ever made. And now, has become one of my favorite films. This is a classic.

A streamlined back to basics approach for Bond that hits all the right marks in rejuvenating the franchise for a new generation.

Audience Reviews for Casino Royale

Daniel Craig revitalizes the Bond franchise the same way Bale saved Batman. This was a throwback to the good ol days of Connery Bond.

Almost all the the good stuff i heard about Casino is true. It is indeed one of the best Bonds ever and I'm really looking forward to the next installment.

Now - I hate when people say this but here goes - this movie was just too darn long. Don't even TRY to introduce a romance two hours into a film.

Bob Stinson

Super Reviewer

Possibly one of the most, if not the most critically acclaimed Bond installment. Martin Campbell directs a sleek, suspenseful and provocative revamping of the acclaimed Ian Fleming saga. It's filled with action, drama and unexpectedness all due to the flare and flamboyance of a strong story and delivery of Daniel Craig. 5/5
