My wife and I went to see Casino Royale this weekend and what can I say? It was excellent! Probably one of the best Bonds ever.
I was fully prepared to not like this movie, what with a blond Bond. But Daniel Craig was very manly in the part – brutal, strong, totally ALPHA! The women were beautiful, and Eva Greene actually made me like Vesper (when I read the book, I didn’t). Eva portrayed her as intelligent, conflicted, and complex. And of course beautiful!
The movie is a little over two hours, but you don’t notice. the action scenes were well done. This is the beginning of Bond’s career and he’s not as polished as he will be later.
I don’t want to spoil the movie so I won’t tell any of the scenes but there are lots of memorable ones. All I can say is, go see it! It won’t disappoint….
