Casino Royale

The name is Bond James Bond and the movie ends. And i really liked the way it ends. If this line had been introduced during the first few scenes it would have been all the more fun. Most of you must have read about the movie now (and even i watched it a month ago) and im sure you are aware of the fact that its an unusual bond movie in the sense that there are no gadgets and bond doesn't flaunt too much with the futuristic electronic components. Perhaps this movie must have released a decade ago in an era where the gadgets weren't important enough. In the first half chase where craig chases the african was indeed intriguing initially until the jacky-chan-ish jumping styles were brought in which dwarfed all my hopes for the movie. In the second half, the focus is on the game they play in the casino which im sure if one isn't aware of the rules will not understand anything!!when Eva green gets introduced i was able to easily sense that she'll turn into a traitor. So that twist is in the end wasn't unexpected. But Daniel Craig has done a commendable role in playing a bond and he surely fits the role to the T. Only the first half i felt was a major let down. The movie is worth a watch once.

This is the first movie I saw where James Bond is really falling in Love with a Gal and wanting to settle down in his life...Good Action by Daniel Craig in the Chassing scene.

just an add-on to your review. CR jamesbond is the original gene of Ian fleming. some of the adjectives of james is very emotional, very much arrogant, high IQ content compartively less power. further CR is the movie where James-bond is an agent called james thats it. thats what intial intro u will not find the standard james theme, and he will not introduce himself as Bond James Bond types. after this successfull operation ( last climax ) he says B-James-B with his legacy theme music. :)

generally people mix james with gadgets which is not true. :)
