The most exciting James Bond thriller in decades, with Daniel Craig playing 007 as a man haunted by what his job brings out in him. The beauty of the film is that a Bond who doesn’t always give a damn is a Bond we can all give more of a damn about. Casino Royale has physical audacity, intrigue, romance, and a charge of personality that stays with you for days.
