Well I went to see it, just got back. Not gonna give it away. But its gritty, very different, true Bond fan may not like it. You know your Bond movies you'll see alot of scenes from his travels. This has alot of twists come sideways very very different. To be license to kill your gonna need an agent who is merciless, none trusting to the smallest details, and a man pig. I think spectre just step a notch up in evil. Chasing electronic cash flow is going to be upheel task. But James Bond is there. I'll give our boy another shot I believe he is do for some revenge. Don't expect inspector gadget. Not gonna happen.

We got it Shepherd.

I frikin' LOVED the new Bond film!! I am a fan of Bond as I came of age in the blindingly-handsome Pierce Brosnan era, but Daniel Craig brings a "realness" to it that is new, refreshing, and fun. All I will say is that he reminded me of Mal in that he, of course, was the hero, but he got beat the heck up- in the most entertaining ways. People who aren't usually fans of Bond should really check this one out- especially my fellow ladies. ;) I loved that they took the time to develop a relationship- at least as much as a Bond flick can- and it seemed as though they scaled down the insanely high volume of gratuitous nearly-nude women. All around very cool. A+ from me. ;)

Yeah.. I thought it was really good fun too! A tiny bit too long (american movies OFTEN make this mistake) but really well done and Daniel Craig ROCKS!

He is a very good actor (see Layer Cake) and he makes this part his own. Some of the usual "Bond" lines.. laughing.. very gritty and relies on reality rather than those fantastic gadgety things..

And Mr. Bond HAS been keeping himself in shape.. very much so! Ladies, don't miss this...

I grew up with the Roger Moore version of Bond and thought he was "the man" until I watched the Connery movies. Dalton was a lot better than most gave him credit for, and Brosnan was like a sequel to Moore. And Lazenby was, well, Lazenby.

All that being said, Craig immediately jumped to #2 on my list of favorite Bonds, only because I couldn't give a guy the top spot after one movie. Casino Royale is, probably, my favorite Bond movie now, and as Cap'n Tightpants himself notes...

"Casino Royale is Casino Royawesome!"

Have to agree here...the new bond totally rocks, and if you've read the books is a true Bond. It was amazing. I'll give nothing away except as a "pre-quel" it explains a lot and it was so fantastic!!!!

All I'll say about it is this: I was all for Pierce Brosnan as Bond because he was always meant to be Bond.

After seeing Casino Royale over the weekend, I am in the position of asking myself, "I'm sorry, Pierce... who?"

I saw it over the weekend and I really liked it a lot. I never really cared much for the cheese factor in some of the previous movies, and it was nice to see most of it done away with in this one. The story was simple yet interesting at the same time, I always hated the over the top story lines of some of the past ones.

They did a good job with this one.

I loved Casino Royale, but then I was always prepared to give Daniel Craig a chance. My friend only had one complaint.

She kept missing parts of the film cos she was too busy staring into his big blue eyes!

Yes, those eyes definitely make up for his unfortunate ears. Not as bad as some - worse in the trailers, actually.

And the rest of him takes care of whatever distraction his eyes don't provide.

YUM!

Wow this is the opposite of me and my friend's reaction. We were laughing histarically through most of the film because it was so outrageous. I won't give anything away either, but just about none of the movie seemed possible. What happened to the opening theme song too? It used to always be some cool music video thing. This one had cheesy original virtua fighter graphics.

All the females were just laughing anytime they focused on bond too much because of how unattractive they found him.

The bond girls didn't do much for me either. Except for when the one didn't have her caked on makeup. She looked hot at that point.

Overall, I can say the action scenes were neat if you completely turn your brain off. The rest of the movie almost seemed like satire.

Bond has always been a bit of a romp through unreality.

The initial chase scene is reasonably possible. I've heard of a group of atheletes in Paris who make a point of doing spiderman like feats of skill through the city.

I found the use of vector and flash style graphics in the introduction intriguing, but then that's part of my field of study.

Not a fan of Daniel's lip line either, frankly. He looks better in the movie than he does in pictures. He has an odd sort of collection of rugged features that seem to go well together.

And NOW I remember why I like it here - the plethora of perspectives.

Well I gotta say that I am very impressed and love this movie. Ranking as one of the best Bond movies.

It is a little long, but the nice touches they put in make up for it.

I started watching in the middle of Moore's era but have always found Connery to get the right mix of jokes, gadgets and guts to get the job done.

This Bond is definitely different, but that is a good thing, you couldn't go on making the films the same way. Some people already hate the movies just because they have the Bond name attached.
Things needed to change and they have, all for the better.

I will look forward to (hopefully) many more with Craig (he is a damn fine actor).

Yeah...it's called "Parkour" and it's quite the thing to see! Interesting note, the scarred bomber Bond chases through the building site and embasssy? One of the founders of Parkour, Sebastian Foucan

And I thought Casino Royale - like our Capt'n - was definitely "royawesome"...though the car crash was a bit much for a fan of Aston Martins to take

On the opening credits? Well, I thought they were quite nicely retro. Reminded me of some of the credits one can see in movies of the 1950s and 1960s. Chris Cornell was good too, though it takes till the end of the song to really get that "power" vibe artists like Dame Shirley Bassey and Sir Thomas Jones brought to the Connery era of film themes

Oh...and Craig-as-Bond? Yeah...he's not a pretty boy, but that's what Fleming wanted: someone who's completely boring as that spectacular things happen to. Could definitely see the literary aura permeating Daniel Craig's performance at times

That was sad - poor pretty car, and he only got to drive it once.

I stopped breathing during the car crash. But then I do that every time one shows up on screen. Divinci Code, The Forgotten, The Island - all have crash sequences in them that have nearly sent me over my chair in the theater. I can't watch the new VW ads on TV either.

I didn't go over my chair with this one, but my niece reached over and started patting me on the arm and telling me, "It's okay."

That's when I realized I had stopped breathing.

I take it Ferris Bueller hurts too? Yeah, I think the only thing that had us guys in the theater wince more than the car being wrecked was the...torture scene. Ugghhh.

I liked it a lot. I didn't have a problem with the "prequel, but modern" thing, as Bond is timeless. I really liked Eva Green (wow...just wow). I think that Craig did a great job and I'm sure it's not easy to jump into a role that everyone has an opinion about, so that makes his performance even more commendable.

Well...not so much "Ferris Bueller." I flinch but: a) I've seen the movie enough that the moment in question is less painful than it once was; and b) the "Ferrari" was only a kit car, so it's like destroying an offfical copy of something, rather than an orignal. But yeah...I was almost curled up foetally with the torture scene! Gotta admit, the knotted rope actually seemed worse than Fleming's orignal idea of an electric carpet beater

Oh hell yeah...Eva Green is definitely one sexy, sexy, sexy (thanks Alan T!) lady! Plus she made the character of Vesper a lot more easier to swallow as someone who could get Bond to actually hang up his gun so quickly after getting Double O status than how the book mader her out to be. Plus the eventual end? Lot more dramatic and painful than literary Vesper's passing. And yeah...Craig definitely laid a firm smackdown on the naysayers about his ability to sell the role. Bond's back to being a deadly mofo whom you just don't with cuz you can see it in his eyes
