Movie Review: Casino Royale

Casino Royale is an action packed, spy adventure, oh and it happens to be a Bond movie. Yes, it had the gadgets, the girls and the near misses, but as this is Bond in the beginning, he is very rough around the edges. Apparently, it takes years to become the super smooth agent we all remember from the other films. Oddly enough, I’m more than ok with that.


Daniel Craig stars as "007" James Bond, most lethal agent on Her Majesty's Secret Service in "Casino Royale." Based on the first Bond book written by Ian Fleming, the story, which has never been told on film until now, recounts the making of the world's greatest secret agent.

James Bond's first "007" mission leads him to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), banker to the world's terrorists. In order to stop him, and bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a high-stakes poker game at Casino Royale. Bond is initially annoyed when a beautiful British Treasury official, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), is assigned to deliver his stake for the game and watch over the government's money. But, as Bond and Vesper survive a series of lethal attacks by Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a mutual attraction develops leading them both into further danger and events that will shape Bond's life forever.

This movie is a must see. It has something for everyone. Whether you are a seasoned Bond fan, or just a lover of a good action flick, it will suck you in and not let you go until the credits roll.

Rating: 5 Stars
