Casino Royale (2006)

Recommended Posts

Starring: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen

Director: Martin Campbell

Opens: Nov. 17, 2006

What the Movie Is About: There's a new Bond in town: Craig, Daniel Craig. Fitting for a fresh start, 'Casino Royale' takes on the first Ian Fleming novel. We learn the origins of 007: his passion for guns, gambling, glamorous cars and of course, girls. We also learn how M (Judi Dench) gives him his first license to kill -- a bit improper for a Dame, but who are we to judge?

This should be pretty good. It's got the original Bond girl, Vesper Lynd. She's the one whose actions will affect how Bond treats women in the rest of the Bond series. Allthough he was pretty much a sexist pig before he met Vesper, he will turn into a sexist paranoid pig with attachment issues after her.

Actually, Daniel Craig is probably closest in look to the literary Bond than any other actor who ever portrayed him. Only problem is his blonde hair. But the literary Bond never had conventional pretty boy looks, but was more rugged and rough (scarred face and all).

they could choose anyone better than him;Clive Owen,Jude Law,Eric Bana-and even George Clooney!

Especially Owen or Bana would be perfect. :(

Owen would have worked. Bana, I'm not so sure. Ioan Gruffudd might make a good Bond one day.

Clive Owen is too old, we'd have geriatric-Bond in 2 movies again like we did with Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day (watch Goldeneye then Die Another Day in order...it's quite a drop off). Jude Law is too much of a lightweight. Eric Bana woulda been alright. George Clooney is American.

Go rent Layer Cake and tell me again if you think Daniel Craig sucks. If it's purely a looks argument, when, well - I don't care enough to argue that.

Owen could have made a decent Bond imho. But he didn't want the part, so we'll never know. However, he is exactly the same age now as Brosnan was when he did his first Bond. And both him and Brosnan were 4 years younger than Moore was when he did his first.

Yeah, and Brosnan started aging real quick. From what I know of Eon they wanted an actor that could play Bond for a bunch of movies instead of 3 or so before starting to show their age. But you're right, Owen doesnt' need Bond, he has a good career already.

Actually, Daniel Craig has already hinted at the fact that he'll probably do no more than 2-3 Bonds. So they'll probably have to look for a new Bond in 3-5 years from now.

:idk: I guess so.

It all depends on how much other offers he gets. But he was already doing fairly well before he got Bond. He was pretty good in Munich.
