Casino Royale November 18, 2006

Posted by ujj in action, Reviews.

Daniel Craig is newly promoted to double 0 status and M as usuall feels this is a mistake but as double Os have a very short life expectancy her mistake is apparanetly going to be short living. For those who have followed the Bond from Dr No to Die Another Day, Casino Royale would seem to be in a completely different plain with little similarities to the other Bond films. Like all Bond films, everyone (including the audience) recognise the real backstabbing “bitch” but he doesn’t. Like all Bond films the BMW looks as gorgeous as that “bitch”, but thats about it. Take these things out of the equation and we have a hardly interested in sex bond who actually looks Greek God enough to look like an assasin. If you havent seen this film and I told you that Bond actually takes a shower in this film with Eva Green (spoiler coming), fully clothed trying to calm her down, I know youd have second thoughts if its the same Bond, but after four decades of seducing and being seduced, Bond finally fell in love (awwwe).

Right! lets get back to the film. A Russian looking terrorist known as Le Chiffre is the guy Bonds after. The story is linked to the after-effects of the 9/11 on the stockmarket. Le Chiffre has put some wild bets with huge odds in the market which he tries to pull of by a terrorist act, failing which he has an opportunity to make up his loses through a game of high stake poker, needless to say, Bond is there as well, and  here I leave the story hanging in the thin air.

The story is a little unclear at times and at times the background score screws up. The gadgets hardly show up and theres just one beautiful woman. The only thing that worked was Daniel Craig. Hes the first Bond who actually looks like hes had some physical training other than french lip excercises. A twenty minute Poker game made the few minutes in the middle boring, I didnt get much (any) of it, but when the crowd clapped I knew Bond did well. Craig fits the model of a cold sly hit man and to give the other people (director and co.) some credit, hes been used very generously in that sense. Possibly the best action Bond film, Casiono Royale is worth betting hundred bucks.

my rating –> 8.5/10.

favorite aspects –> action and Daniel Craig.
