    Craig gives us James Bond in the fascinating act of inventing himself. This you do not want to miss. show more

    The film is about a half hour too long. The third act drags and an extended high-stakes poker game doesn't always keep our attention. But this is a superior Bond. show more

    Daniel Craig isn't merely acceptable, but formidable. His Bond is at least the equal of the best ones before him, and beats all of them in sheer intensity. show more

    Like Connery - but in different proportions - Craig is earthy and erotic, holding himself like a smoking gun. show more

    Fans of anyone other than Sean Connery who has played James Bond may want to look away, because admirers of Ian Fleming's 007 novels are almost bound to agree that Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Sean. show more

    What a relief to escape the series' increasing bondage to high-tech gimmicks in favor of intrigue and suspense featuring richly nuanced characters and women who think the body's sexiest organ is the brain. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    This movie is NEW from the get-go. It could be your first Bond. In fact, it was the first Bond; it was Ian Fleming's first 007 novel, and he was still discovering who the character was. show more

    Eleven years ago director Campbell made "GoldenEye," the first of the Brosnan Bond pictures. Casino Royale trumps it every which way. show more

    This is no longer the James Bond we know from the '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. Welcome to the new world of MI6's most storied agent. show more

    The movie was pretty good but Daniel Craig is not the greatest James Bond ever, Sean Connery is James Bond. I give the movie Three stars out of five.

    I really don't know how anyone who is a Bond film fan couldn't like this. Can't waiter for Quantum of Solace.
