This was a great and entertaining film

I thought Daniel Craig did an excellent job! (And I was skeptical at first.) But I think they have moved the franchise in quite a different direction that there really is not a lot to compare between Craig and Brosnan... Brosnan's Bond (as well as Connery's and Moore's Bonds) was much more of the snappy, womanizing, one-liner type while Craig, I felt, was more focused on the action and the internal dynamics of who Bond is and, most interestingly, WHY Bond is who he is. A much darker feel than any other Bond movie, but still managed to be a great flick.

I would highly recommend this

On a sidenote: Judi Dench rocked "M" in this movie! She's my hero

I thought it was a great but long movie!

It seemed more brutal then other Bond movies and it didnt have really any gadgets besides the gps/phone system...

I thought Daniel Craig did an okay job as Bond actually..

The closest in tone to the books than any other movie has come (more so than On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Living Daylights) May be the best Bond movie of all time based on that alone.

Great film!

it's interesting ... the violence in this one hurt more, was more brutal, but i remember some of the older ones having a much higher body count and more, uh, creative deaths like that pressure chamber thing in the rather awful "License to Kill."

Yeah, during my 8 hour layover I had some Pad Thai and killed about an hour getting a shoulder/neck massage for about 15 bucks! What a place. lol.

Now in the Tokyo-Narita airport. I love traveling to exotic places, but honestly, most of the travel part consists of a lot of sitting - sitting and waiting for the plane to arrive, sitting on the plane waiting to arrive at the next city, rewind do it again.

I loved the film. I liked the fact that it was believable and unlike the last one, there were no lasers or other things that belong in a Superman film.

And Daniel Craig is HOTNESS. Loved him.

Just got back from it...today is my bf's birthday and this was part of our day's events to celebrate.

wow! This may be the best Bond movie I've seen yet. In any case, Craig rocks the role. My only complaint (besides that agonizing torture scene, ugh) was that it was a touch too long...had too many false endings. Still, overall . I can't wait to see the next one!

It was great, but way too long.

Still, one of the better 6 hour movie experiences of this year.

I agree it was too long. They could have easily cut a lot of the airport chase scene (even though it was very exciting) and some of the lovey-doveyness toward the end and the length would have been perfect.


Other than that, flawless movie. I've been watching all the Bond movies on the Spike marathon the last couple of days and it just reinforces how good Casino Royale is in comparison to most of the others

Just got back a few minutes ago. Could be the best Bond movie ever....even better than Goldeneye. And that's coming from a diehard Brosnan/Goldeneye fanatic.
