James Bond Review

Warning, there may be some spoilers below.

So last night my Dad, Brother-in-law and I went to see Casino Royale, the new James Bond Movie. The movie was around two and a half hours long. I actually found the time fly by. I thought this next installment was very good. I gave it an 8.5 out of 10.

So the movie opens with a flashback. The flashback explains how someone becomes a double O and show us how Bond became one. This is important because the movie is trying to tell one of Bond's earliest missions. This is confusing since the movie is set to today's time and terrorism is the theme.

As the movie progresses, we get to see a Bond that has never been seen before. One that is a little rough and well brutish. Examples of this is not knowing if his martini should be shaken or stirred. Showing off his driving skills as he crashes his car and rolls several times. Being caught on camera as he does his spy duties. All the early mistakes are what Bond learns from to become the great agent he is.

By the end of the movie, Bong got the girl catches the crook and earns the trust of M. Like I said all in all it was a good movie, and I think Craig will become one of the best Bonds.
