Saw a sneak preview of the new Bond movie, Casino Royale, last night. I'm a huge 007 fan, so I've been looking forward to this movie for just about after the credits of the last one started rolling.
Well worth the wait.
I saw in the paper that Daniel Craig brings the franchise back, but I don't want to say that because I think Pierce Brosnan was the one who actually did that... bringing it back from License to Kill, which was, in my opinion, the worst Bond ever. (A View to a Kill can't be the worst, because it has Christopher Walken.)
Casino Royale starts out with Bond even before he was a "00" agent... resetting the story just like they did with Batman Begins.
Daniel Craig reminds me of Connery's Goldfinger performance. Rough around the edges, but every now and then he flashes a smile without being cheesy.
The story, and their actually is one, is well thought out and not predictable at all. Just go see it... even if you're not a Bond fan... it's a great action movie for anyone.
