007 Casino Royale

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will tell you guys what my sister told me. She told me that she thought the new bond was no where near as hot as brosnan and connery. I thought that was kinda funny. She also said the chick wasn't as hot as say, Halle Berry :)

Watched it with the Girlfriend on the 22/11/06.

 

Thought it was excellent!! Especially compared to the last few Bond Films.

 

Action was excellent (first 20mins was brilliant) Had a few laughs in there.

 

Didn't like: Not enough Gadgets, Would of like to have seem more of the car, Would of liked to see Eva Green in less clothes :)

 

9/10 though :)

i cannot praise the film enough. i think they did a great job and achieved what they set out to do:

 

a tough, gritty and likeable bond who isn't always perfect. i wise move in a genre that was getting so boring really.

 

true, we missed Q/R and some gadgets and no proper car-chase, but those who said it was boring may forget that the first hour was non-stop action! i will agree that it may *appear* boring in the latter half, but that was only because it made "Return of the King" seem short in length...

 

gone are the days of an invincible bond - this one had moments of sheer insanity (jumping from the crane anyone?) and humour "shaken or stirred?" "do i look like a give a darn?" but not darn - it was what occ likes filtering out, lol.

 

they dared to be different and did well. especially Sony...they had a lot of shameless plugging in there!

I just saw it and I was impressed. I like the way he played bond, probably the best bond after Sean Connery. And it allowed you to see his humanity. I like the way he didn't sleep with every girl, especially how he comforted Vesper after he killed the two guys.

 

What I didn't like was not enough gadgets. Like in the old ones when Q would be showing him stuff as they walk through the building all the tests going on.

 

Also, it seemed to have five endings. There were so many time when I was waiting on the credits and yet they kept going with the movie. that was really what bothered me.

 

Overall, I enjoyed it. but not the best movie ever.

I dare say best bond in a long time.

 

Whereas in the past movies the gadgets were outrageous and almost silly, in this one any gadgets he used were more realistic and were not given a main role. I say again, a gadget should not have a main role in a movie. This bond was more human, more realistic, more gritty, he didn't sleep with everyone for no reason, but was still charming. I'm going as far as to say my favorite bond movie yet.

:withstupid:

Note: He was actually badgered and bloody after his fights, as opposed to Brosnan who got done fighting, then was back in his tux with the slicked back hair in no-time.

I have to agree this was the best bond since god knows when... mid 70's or when ever conery left the series.

 

 

the question becomes where to now? without any more fleming novels to cover... do you remake some of the more famous bond movies with the same style? cuz there's no way hollywood doesn't capitalized on this one. they did batman as a much darker and tougher character and made HUGE money after the cartoonish flops. same is true of this movie. I can't see them tossing Daniel Craig as James Bond to the sidelines.

I read somewhere where the next Bond film is going to be a remake of one of Roger Moore's films (I think Live and Let Die but don't hold me to that). If I find it again I'll post it.

The next bond is coming out on 2008. It is going to be a continuation from Casino Royale.
