If you were leery of this Bond prequel, fear no more! I can easily say that this is the best in the franchise. Most of you more than likely had your favorite James Bond. I liked Pierce Brosnan (that could be because it was during my childhood), but I'm sure that you had your own opinion. Now, those opinions don't matter. You will certainly fall in love with Daniel Craig and hope they never cancel his contract.

James Bond's first mission leads him to the Casino Royale where he must defeat Le Chiffre, banker to the world's terrorists, and bankrupt their network. Verper Lynd (Eva Green) is assigned to watch over the British government's money that is being put into the poker game. As they are attacked by Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a romance develops.

Casino Royalefeatures what nearly every other film in this franchise lacked. What is that word? Oh, yes, plot. Don't lose hope just yet. It is still as flashy as ever and the special effects couldn't have been better. Craig's performance was quite different from the past actors'. He is more of a "shoot you in the face" man, than "let's invite you over for tea", and it is about time. Surprisingly, I didn't get bored during the poker scenes. I actually began guessing what every player's strategy was. Whether you like this kind of thing or not, you will enjoy the movie at some level. I promise you will not regret it.

My Rating = Five Stars
