Review The purpose of Casino Royale is to "re-boot" the franchise. Craig isn't succeeding Brosnan; he's re-inventing the role. As far as this movie is concerned, nothing in the previous 20 entries has happened. This is Bond's "origin" story and the only thin bit of continuity is Judi Dench's return as Madam M. Forget everything you think you know about 007...For Daniel Craig, this is a triumphant debut. Not since early Connery have we seen a Bond this magnetic. Craig manages to show us both the human and the inhuman sides of Bond, and the portrayal is free of fatuousness...Not since the closing moments of On Her Majesty's Secret Service have we seen such a vulnerable 007...In recent years, I have come to each new James Bond movie with a series of ingrained expectations. For the most part, the Brosnan films met them across the board. Casino Royale defies many of them, and I couldn't be happier.

Review Making full amends for inflicting Goldeneye (1995) on Bondphiles, Martin Campbell returns to helm Casino Royale, adapted from Ian Fleming's first 007 novel by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and Oscar winner Paul Haggis (Crash). Although it's impossible to gauge how much creative sway Haggis exerted over the final screenplay, the writing is certainly sharper and much more sophisticated in Casino Royale, which takes place in a post-9/11 world in which Bond goes after international terrorists, rather than cat-stroking madmen bent on global domination...there's so much that's very right about Casino Royale - from the knockout opening action sequence in Madagascar to the sizzling chemistry between Craig and Green - that you leave the theater happily shaken and stirred.
