Mwoah i actually found it boring... It was all about poker. I like poker but that wasnt really why i went to the cinema. I like james bonds like Die another day... or The world is not enough etc.

Best things about Casino Royale:

- the opening credit sequence (I'm a huge Saul Bass fan, so it was great seeing his influence in this well done design).

- the chase scene (Sebastien Foucan's free running)

- it's largely (and surprisingly) faithful to the novel.

It was a good action flick, but for a "bond" movie, I didn't like it.

The suave James Bond turned into a scruffy slugger who prefers fists over guns and other gadgets. In fact, not many gadets were revealed, and the car (ooh... I love Aston Martin) barely made what could be called an acceptable appearance.

Fine, throw away the traditional elements, but those are the very things that make the Bond series what it is. I was too disappointed that James Bond turned out like that. Sigh.
Casino Royale is the first Bond story and it tries to show how Bond becomes what he is in later stories.

This is the chronological order of Bond novels:

Casino Royale
Live and Let Die
Moonraker
Diamonds Are Forever
From Russia with Love
Doctor No
Goldfinger
For Your Eyes Only
Thunderball
Spy Who Loved Me
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
You Only Live Twice
The Man with the Golden Gun
Colonel Sun (written by Robert Markham)
Octopussy
The Living Daylights and a Quantum of Solace

^amused^ Yeah, I suppose so.

It should be interesting to see what they would do with the next Bond film. I suspect it'll be a let down.

For everyone who saw this movie, did you all realize that it was set in the present time? -- For instance, I caught the info on the cellphone it was dated 2006. This sort of implies that the other bond movies are set in the near future if this movie was suppose to be a prequel.

What I didn't like about this movie was the story itself. The best part about the movie was probably the opening chase scene and I was definitely not rooting for bond at that time.

I though the bond girl, Eva Green was really hot. This was a great movie. Daniel Craig has beautiful eyes
