Casino Royale isn't just an amazing James Bond movie, its an amazing movie, period. The film is pretty much divided into 3 acts, with each one bringing something new to the table to keep things fresh. In fact, I could separately review each act as a stand-alone movie, and I would give each one a great review. This reboot of the beloved character is a darker spin on the franchise and is definitely deserving of that PG-13 rating. One scene in particular will really make you cringe in pain, especially if you are a man. The movie has great performances by Daniel Craig and proves all the naysayers wrong, because if you look back to a year before this movie came out, people were really skeptical.
In the end, Casino Royale is a movie that is easily regarded as a classic. The direction, cinematography, acting, color grading, all work in harmony to bring a near-perfect movie.
