21st film in the 007 Franchise introduces a new 007 and goes back to its roots. Daniel Craig stars as the latest incarnation of James Bond, special agent and international man of mystery and intrigue. The first Bond film in many years to be based on one of the original Ian Fleming books, Casino Royale is a quieter, subtler, more brooding breed of action film, which is not to say there's any less blowings up, dirty tricks, sexy women or chase sequences. Bond is in Montenegro at a highly exclusive casino where Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) a moneyman for an international terrorist group, is raising funds for their misdeeds through high-stakes gambling. 007 must infiltrate the group and ultimately defeat the rogue player, both on and off the tables.

There&39;s no Moneypenny or "Q" but Dame Judi Dench is back as the exasperated M who one senses admires Bond&39;s "bloody cheek" A Bond film is only as good as its villain and Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre who weeps blood is a sinister dandy From its punishing violence and virtuoso action sequences to its romance Casino Royale is a Bond film that in the words of one character &39;makes you feel it&39; particularly during an excruciating torture sequence Double-0s Bond observes early on "have a short life expectancy" But with Craig there is new life in the old franchise yet as well as genuine anticipation for the next one when at last the signature James Bond theme kicks in following the best last line ever in any Bond film To quote Goldie Hawn in Private Benjamin "now I know what I&39;ve been faking all these years" --Donald Liebenson
