James Bond: Why CASINO ROYALE (2006) Is ‘The One’

Roger Moore was my favourite James Bond for a very long time, mainly because he’s the star of the first Bond film I ever watched. However, absolutely everything changed when my dear Mr Craig, Daniel Craig, came along.

I didn’t care that at the time, most believed him to be the wrong choice. I was too busy being excited that radical change was finally coming. Especially since like many other fans, I had fallen out of love with what the Franchise had become prior to Casino Royale.

Since Casino Royale is the very first James Bond book, one could surmise that finally, audiences would get an insight into what it was that really made Bond tick. The film certainly delivers in this regard and in several others including all the elements that makes for a great film. I.e. brilliant dialogue, to name just one.

The unapologetic brute force of Craig’s Bond is a huge part of what makes Casino Royale such a memorable comeback for the franchise, and part of the reason why the film is my favourite Bond to date.

I will not drop any spoilers for those yet to watch the film but I will say this: the first 20 minutes is brilliant, and you’ll be glad to learn that the rest of the movie continues as such.

Have you seen it? If You know it’s the best don’t you?

Happy Film Loving. 🙂
