And Daniel Craig More please

that's one thing I really liked about it, too, it had about 4 twists at the end when I thought it was almost over and then something else happened. Love that!

Solid Bond outing, and the final scene made me come in my pants the first time I saw it.

Okay well not really, but figuratively, from a dialogue standpoint.

I liked it.

Although I preferred the ones with Pierce Brosnan.

I somehow think they abused a little when showing Daniel Craig's pecs... or I just might be jealous

But a good transition to a "more human" Bond...

There's a rerun of all the Bond movies on our local TV station and re-watching Brosnan I preferred him as Bond.

Craig is the better actor and possibly the best from all of them in action packed scenes and added some depth in the character - but I'm curious how he will do once the accent is off his muscles and fight scenes and Q and the gadgets come back. Then it wil be easier to compare him with the others, because Casino Royale was just so different from the Bond franchise movies.

I will say that Pierce lacked a definitive villain (S. Connery had Blofeld, R. Moore had that guy with the iron in his teech, plus actors such as C. Lee or Christopher Walken playing the baddies) and good scenarios.

I'm going to make my mom watch it this weekend. She generally hates Bond movies but has heard so much buzz about this one she's become curious. I can't wait to see her reaction to it.


Ahhhhhhhhh I still get goosebumps when I start watching it even on DVD...it's so awesome!!!!!1

Well, it comes on two different DVDs. The second one is packed but Netflix only mails you the first one...

Just watched the movie tonight. Awesome. Might be my favorite one. Was great to see Bond learning on the job.

Can't wait for the next one. I hope they keep it a little more rugged, as Craig would seem to fit that role better than a more polished Bond.

I too watched this movie for the first time tonight, and I must say, I plan on watching it again tomorrow. And I will tape it when it comes on TV and keep it forever, because, quite frankly, this film is as good as Bond gets.

Daniel Craig is like Rambo in a tuxedo, but regardless, he's so cool. Not the sharpest knife in the cupboard, but I'm pretty sure that was the point.

Eva Green is teh sex. I would have drooled all over myself if my mother wouldn't have been present (she really liked the film as well BTW, and she doesn't even like Bond!)

The cinematography was breathtaking. I loved the exotic locales, and the artsy (perhaps a bit too artsy) cut-scenes such as the part where he was poisoned.

The plot was anything but ordinary and it kept me on the edge of my seat.

Outside of a view ridiculously destructive moments that felt rushed and claustrophobic, it was very, very good.

8.5/10
