Becky and I went to see Casino Royale on opening night in Castle Rock a few weeks ago with another couple. The Fandango website at Casino Royale describes the movie as follows:
“After receiving a license to kill, British Secret Service agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) heads to Madagascar, where he uncovers a link to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a man who finances terrorist organizations. Learning that Le Chiffre plans to raise money in a high-stakes poker game, MI6 sends Bond to play against him, gambling that their newest “00” operative will topple the man’s organization. Based on Ian Fleming’s novel.”
Casino Royale is one of the best Bond movies to come along in a very long time. The story is great, the acting is good and the action is incredible.
There was a great deal of controversy surrounding the “new” Bond, played by Daniel Craig, but he definitely pulls off the character. This is the first of the Bond films that I’ve seen where James Bond actually gets his clothes dirty and doesn’t dodge getting injured like a super hero.
Be prepared for a long movie with Casino Royale since it’s 2 hours and 24 minutes in length. When you add in 20 minutes of Previews, going to this film is definitely an event. Unfortunately for Becky and Tammy, they missed the ending since we had to pick-up our kids from a function before the end of the movie. My friend Chris and I weren’t leaving and the ending was very cool.
Becky thought it was a Rental since she missed the ending and I would say that if you’re a Bond fan, don’t miss this one..
