James Bond movie #21 with James Bond #6: Daniel Craig. Said to be the most literal adaptation of an Ian Flemmings novel ('Casino Royale' being the first of the Bond books) since Sean Connery, the film is also hoped to revitalise the franchise.
James Bond is a new recruit at the MI6 team. He's reckless and careless and on a mission. After just earning his 00 status with his first 2 kills, he is sent to the Bahamas where he is to verse Le Chiffre in a game of Texas Hold 'Em Poker. Although Bond must ensure that Le Chiffre's death comes at the hands of his own people.

Overrated I'd say... from the reviews below, one gathers fans have thoroughly loved it. From my point of view though, the Brosnan Bond was a bit tongue in cheek and this one seems to take it self far more seriously. Too seriously, because in itself the James Bond idea is so ridiculous and has been parodied so much. I don't know, seemed a bit laughable in its seriousness.
But this one turned has converted me. I've not seen entertainment like this since the days of Indiana Jones. One of the best action and spy movies I've ever seen. Daniel Craig and NZ director Martin Cambell should be proud. It's taken them 50 years to get it right, but wow it packs a punch when they finally did!
This movie has at last reached the reality of the new 21st Century. The new Bond is truely a hero and one mean mother as well. While Sean Connery was great for his time our new Bond is updated and more realistic. I am looking forward to the rest of the Bond movies being updated as well as this movie has been.
