I'm not that big on movie series, but I take an interest to a few now and then (Indiana Jones, Batman, Star Wars, Back to the Future, etc.). One series that I was introduced to was the James Bond series.
Recently promoted to 00 status, James Bond (Daniel Craig) takes over his first mission, in which he faces a mysterious private banker to world terrorism and poker player, Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen). Along with beautiful Treasury agent Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) and Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini), the MI6 man in Montenegro, Bond takes part in a high stakes poker game set up by Le Chiffre in order ro recover a huge sum of his clients' money he lost in a failed plot that the British spy took down. 007 will not only discover the threatening organization behind his enemy, but the worst of all truths: to not trust on anyone.
Having never seen of the earlier James Bond movies prior to Casino Royale, I didn't really know what to expect. After seeing Casino Royale, my mind was blown. It had the right amount of action, a smart concept and a damn good time at the movies.
My Rating: ****1/2
