Casino Royale

A new world needs a new James Bond and this inchoate, flawed, more realistic/human British secret agent is better than most even if he fluctuates between being superhuman and oblivious. The plot has too many false stops and is heavy handed with the clues, yet it is the most enjoyment I’ve had with 007 in at least a decade. So if you like to watch Bond struggle (that’s right) to outwit the card shark/investment banker (who is a cripple as all villains obviously are) to the world’s terrorists and his assorted goons, then this is the movie for you (as long as you ignore some of the sloppy plot points). Don’t worry, despite the update to the secret agent, there are hot women with ridiculously large breasts who want to have sex with Bond.
