Casino Royale

One line review: This reboot of the Bond series changes a few details about the characters and the original book, but it’s all for the better.

Rotten Tomatoes: 94% – Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: a caustic, haunted, intense reinvention of 007.

My rating: ****

My assessment (the first 101 words at least): By the time I watched this movie I had read the multiple James Bond audiobooks, including Casino Royale. Contrary to the usual situation, I think the movie is better than the book and this helped with my positive view of this movie. I think it updates James Bond, makes the character more human than in previous books and films, and adds a bit more action to the story. What I may enjoy the most about this particular interpretation of Bond is that he seems more capable of making mistakes and more emotional rather than the generic action hero. A great film.
