Casino Royale Reviews

Tim Adams

By the end of a curiously back-to-front film, when he finally gets his theme tune and introduces himself -- 'Bond. James Bond' -- he, like the creaky franchise itself, seems profoundly unsure whether he is coming or going.

This is a Bond with great body but no soul.

Casino Royale tries to have it both ways, moving toward the genuine while still grasping for the outlandish. The result is a film that's caught between caution and abandonment. And that's probably not a place where James Bond wants to be.

Okay, I was willing to reserve judgment until I saw the film, but now it's official ---- I don't like a blonde Bond!

If Casino Royale had kept to a lean, mean 90 minutes, it could have been the perfect James Bond flick.

Dudosamente sea la mejor de la serie, pero Daniel Craig le imprime a su James Bond una crudeza y humanidad interesantes.

Who wants to see Bond learn a lesson about ego, as if he were Greg Brady in his 'Johnny Bravo' phase?

Craig is actually a great choice for the new Bond persona of Casino Royale; it's the new spin on the character ... that leaves doubts.

Spectacular action -- and a cool new Bond. But the film goes long and an important romance isn't quite sold. Nor is the plot terribly solid.

Casino Royale is a welcome break from the past and a strong and entertaining film in its own right, proving the continuing viability of Fleming's creation 50 years after his inception.

The film opens with a bang, only to flatline 30 minutes later.

It's not as bad as Die Another Day, and not up to the jolly mayhem of the best films in the series.

For the first time ever, James Bond is tough, smart, sexy, smooth, witty... and sort of three-dimensional. Welcome to the 21st century, Mr. Bond.

Daniel Craig is probably the best actor ever to take on the role ... more Steve McQueen than Cary Grant, closer to the bone.

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.

You don't need a weatherman to tell you the 21st installment in the franchise brings an invigorating chill to the air.
