Casino Royale

“It’s about time,” you’re probably saying to yourself. Well, yes, I am way behind seeing movies recently. I finally saw Casino Royale at literally its last showing at the Camera Cinemas (where I can see films for free Sunday-Thursday since I invested in one of their theaters).

I’m not going to write a long review, but I will say it was very good as an action thriller, but also very unlike other Bond films (which is both a good and a bad thing). Daniel Craig has a real chance to be the best Bond ever (personally I have a hard time ranking them, except that I’m sure Roger Moore was the worst and that Timothy Dalton is way better than most think). And Eva Green (the Bond Girl du jour) is very pleasant to watch.

I had heard bad things about an interminable poker section of the film, and complaints about the film having several endings. I can see what they’re saying, but those problems were minor at worst, to me.

I’m torn between 3 and 3.5 stars out of 4, but I’ll go with 3.5.
