For fans of the no-nonsense, rugged sexuality of the Sean Connery original model, Craig is the heir to that hallowed throne.

While Craig owns the movie, he gets much capable support. Green's Bond babe believably has more on the ball than many of her predecessors, while Dench, returning as M, Bond's boss, has perfected her sighs of exasperation.

A Bond for our times, indeed

Every era gets the James Bond it deserves. Ours gets a Bond who's strong and forceful but also reckless and arrogant, who blunders into tricky situations in Third World countries and makes a bloody mess of things.

A strong, well defined story, some unexpected betrayals and hidden corners, sensational locations and an absence of gadgets make Casino Royale a right royal Bond movie.

Gritty and thrilling, Casino Royale has it all - action, glamour, spectacular locations and a new Bond that is above all, vulnerable.... Whether you can follow the Texas Hold 'Em poker game, it matters not.
