Wow, Casino Royale was totally awesome! I went and saw it this evening and was very impressed.
I had previously seen Daniel Craig in Layer Cake and he was amazing in that, so I had high hopes for this new Bond flick. He didn’t dissapoint.
There was sadly as major lack of gadgets and car vs. car chases, but that’s okay as there were some great foot chases as well as single car chases. There was also great character development (unlike many previous titles) and just the right amount of violence (not overdoing it, but Bond still kicking ass).
Sadly, there were no mostly naked girls in the opening credits, a tradition for over 30 years now! The title song was quite good though (sung by the lead singer of Audioslave).
Anyway, since I’m poor with words and tired of writing, I’ll sum it up: go see it, you won’t be disappointed. It was the best Bond movie since Goldeneye by far in my opinion and is probably easily one of my top 5 Bond movies.
I can’t wait until Bond #22 when we have Craig with R and all the gadgets. It’ll be seriously kickass. 😀
