Casino Royale takes things back to the start for James Bond with a new actor and delivers one of the best films in the franchise.

One of the best of all Bond movies, and the best in over a quarter century.

A sharp script, lush direction, impeccable action, a memorably creepy Bond Villain, a bold and brilliant Bond Girl, and the arrival of Daniel Craig; Casino Royale is the greatest Bond film ever made.

Craig delivers the first Bond who scares you.

Casino Royale is right up there with my favourite films, let alone Bond films. Well paced, well shot, well acted and lots of fun and clever nods to past Bond-isms. Top marks.

Insofar as a Bond film comes into contact with social and historical facts, it must turn them on their head, losing any of its charm in the process.

You've never seen Bond like this before. Stand back, but stay watching.

With its fresh approach to the lead character, its boost of severity, and its return to the source material, it proves to be the jumpstart the franchise has been begging for.

In all the Bond movies, this is the most emotional and personal Bond adventure I've seen.

I've been a fan of Craig since the little known Layer Cake and I am happy to say he does an outstanding job as Bond

'Casino Royale' is not only the "best of all time" Bond movie, but also one of the strongest vehicles in the action genre we've seen since the beginning of the century. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film has breathless stunts and encounters aplenty.

In Daniel Craig, the producers found a suitably tarnished and brutal icon for this new iteration of Bond

James Bond is back, and as it turns out, he's been gone a lot longer than anyone even realized.

Bond is back. Bond is beefy. And the new Bond is blond. Daniel Craig has comfort ably slipped into the tuxedo, size 007, and left audiences shaken and stirred.

When Bond kills an adversary in a hotel stairwell, the violence is nasty and brutal - and you feel bystander Vesper's shock and revulsion too. She doesn't merely wince and get over it, as so many of her predecessors did; she's clearly traumatised.

Casino Royale is exactly what the franchise needs to keep in the game against the Bournes and Missions: Impossible of the world.
Nov 2, 2015
This is a much more serious Bond than we've seen in many years. Daniel Craig inhabits the dark side of the secret agent really well, he is absolutely the best Bond since Connery.
Nov 2, 2015
Craig's humanised, more flawed interpretation of the role balances Campbell's physical direction and co-writer Paul Haggis's sparing wit, while Eva Green provides an alluring love interest.

I think this is a very intelligent film for a Bond film, and certainly one of the most enjoyable.
