Darker than usual Bond; too violent for tweens.

Fresh: What, no jet packs? No world-conquering supervillains orbiting the planet? No preference for shaken martinis?
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, November 17, 2006
Fresh: A strong, well defined story, some unexpected betrayals and hidden corners, sensational locations and an absence of gadgets make Casino Royale a right royal Bond movie.
- Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: I consider Daniel Craig to be the most effective and appealing of the six actors who have played 007, and that includes even Sean Connery.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Daniel Craig revitalizes the Bond franchise the same way Bale saved Batman. This was a throwback to the good ol days of Connery Bond.

Almost all the the good stuff i heard about Casino is true. It is indeed one of the best Bonds ever and I'm really looking forward to the next installment. Now - I hate when people say this but here goes - this movie was just too darn long. Don't even TRY to introduce a romance two hours into a film.

"Casino Royale" is my favorite James Bond picture. It's classy, action packed, realistic, emotional, and well written. It features a near perfect balance of character development, mythology, action and mystery. What I like most about "Casino Royale" is how old fashioned it all feels. Plain and simple, one of the best spy films around featuring a standout performance from Daniel Craig.
