Casino Royale

I'm a big James Bond fan. There, I've admitted it. But I was extremely disappointed in this latest movie. It's actually, Bond's beginning. There was no plot. Virtually no gadgets, and lacked that certain wit for which 007 was famous for.

After the movie was over, I'm glad I rented the DVD, and didn't actually pay a fortune to see it, I thought about the movie in light of writing. Books must have a plot. A solid beginning, middle and end. This movie lacked this essential elements, but because it was "James Bond" the writers were able to get away with it. UNFAIR!!!

Hee hee! CR is the only Bond movie I've ever been able to watch all the way through. I agree with the no plot, but I'm an action film girl, so that didn't bother me as much.

Isn't Daniel Craig a total dish, though? British actors wear their age so much better than American actors.

Hey! I hopped over from CW and had to comment ... My husband is a huge James Bond fan and he thought CR was one of the best! :) I can't respond personally because I fell asleep half-way through watching it. lol. Anyway, I think he's just gotten bored with the formula --- three love interests, too many gadgets, naked silhouettes during the credits, cheesy one-line inuendos ... I guess I'll have to go watch the whole movie!
