Casino Royale

Rating: 6/10

Starring: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench

Directed by: Martin Campbell

Review: Film review – Casino Royale (2006) – To begin with I should say I’m not a Bond fan. Too many bad films killed the franchise for me a long time ago.

This film is described as a reboot of the franchise and the franchise certainly needed rebooting. The problem for Bond now is Bourne, the Bourne franchise has superceded Bond as the modern day spy franchise and even in this reboot Bond still looks dated I’m afraid. That said there is some entertainment to be had and Daniel Craig pulls the role off very well. I didn’t even slightly doubt he was Bond.

This is a slick, entertaining blockbuster with a dated plot and style.

ps: It seems the worm has certainly turned, very little female flesh on display but plenty of Daniel Craig.
