Great film, the family and I enjoyed the cut and thrust of the action. Daniel is very good as James Bond, because he makes the character come alive. Read more

Description
After a great deal of discussion--on the part of fans and producers alike--over Daniel Craig's (THE MOTHER, MUNICH) suitability for the role of James Bond, he more than proves himself in this explosive revamping of the franchise. Under the direction of Martin Campbell (THE MASK OF ZORRO) and with Paul Haggis (CRASH) helping with the re-writes, this addition to the Bond canon manages to hold true to the essence of the stories--the villainous villains, the fabulous sets, the beautiful women, the fast-paced action--while updating the formula with subtlety and humanity. Trading in the Cold War era for a new, post-9-11 landscape, the tale unfolds in locations that span the globe, including the Bahamas, Venice, and the Czech Republic. It opens in Madagascar, where Bond pursues a guerilla bomb-maker in one of the most breathtaking chase scenes ever--and it all takes place on foot. Botching that assignment, Bond goes to Montenegro to square off against terrorist baddie Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelson), an international loan shark who gambles with the money of his equally dangerous clients. Beautiful British Treasury representative Vesper Lynd (Eva Green, THE DREAMERS) supplies Bond's own funds, appearing on his arm in Montenegro, while M (Dame Judi Dench, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE) keeps a close watch on the action from headquarters. The extravagant poker game forms the centre of the action, with Jeffrey Wright (SYRIANA, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) putting in an intense appearance at the table; interrupting the game are assassination attempts, poisoning, and other dramatic events that keep the adrenaline pumping. The flirtation that unfolds between Bond and Vesper Lynd is only in keeping with the spy's M.O. as a ladies' man. What differs here, however, is what sets this Bond apart from the rest: the romance is taken seriously, and it exposes vulnerability in Bond that he's never shown before. This, however, only makes him the tougher, as Craig's Bond is darker, less campy, more brooding and mysterious, than his past incarnations ever were.

Bond Is Back!

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 12/08/13
After the Bond franchise began to die out after seeping too far into it's own gadgetry, The character needed to get back to it's own roots and still deliver the next big Bond film as one of cinemas largest movie franchises continues to grow strong even now.

And after all the ridiculous media and news that surrounded it, it delivered wonderfully one of the best, most earnest spy flicks in recent years. if you loved every other incarnation of Bond, or in need of some superb escapism, check out this modernization of Ian Fleming's classic novel of Bond's first 00 mission.

Best Ever Bond Film

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 10/12/13
Daniel Craig is James Bond and Casino Royale is the best film so far in the franchise.
A roller coaster of a film from start to finish, you will not be disappointed buying this.

Classic Film, well worth the HDness

Created: 19/01/11
this film really does showcase Blu-Ray's well. That's probably why the gave so many of these disks away with PS3's, in order to promote the quality of HD.

The film is brilliant. Perhaps not the best for die-hard Bond fans who may not appreciate the Daniel Craig element, however, if you look at it as a stand-alone film - it is very entertaining and enjoyable.

A must see in HD.
