This was a pretty good movie. It lots of running, action moves, gun fire, explosions, blood, and romance. Of course there was a little to much killing. Every scene someone ended up being killed. It got confusing. And why cant there ever be a happy ending. The opening scene really was the worst scene in the movie, i couldnt follow it at all, even though it was exciting and maby the biggest action scene, i didnt see a point to it. allthough all together i would recomend picking it up as long as you dont have a weak stomach. i give Casino Royale a 4
This in my opinion is one of the best movies you could go see right now, it has everything you could want in an action movie. It has the best fight scenes out of any bond movie iv'e seen and the cars couldn't be better, the women are bond quality also. The only thing i can say is for people hoping for more of the same your going to be dissapointed because they take bond in an entirely new direction and it couldn't have been a better decision
The first thing I noticed was the opening credits. There was no form whatsoever of nude or scantly clad women. That right there told me this Bond would be different.
In the past almost all of the action scenes were done with some sort of props. Cars, guns, swords, etc.. and even though each was violent they still had an air of sophistication to them. Not so in this Bond, in your face fighting and hand to hand brawls are the norm instead of the exception. And in keeping with tradition a Bond movie that brakes new ground on action scenes that haven't been done before.
One "minus" was the lengthy lapse of story continuation in the middle of the movie, my only guess for the reason behind it was to show a softer side of this new 007. The other was a bad guy that didn't even seem worth the effort of a top secret agency.
Overall the movie was great. Good action, great suspense, and just enough surprises to keep you guessing.
