| 007
Daniel Craig's debut as 007 which he knocked out of the park. A very grounded, smart, realistic James Bond film. Casino Royale is debatably for most fans the best Bond film and I can honestly view this film as a movie of its own to be honest. Daniel Craig is the best bond since Sean Connery.

Trivia

"Casino Royale" was the first James Bond novel written by Ian Fleming, and is the last of the original Fleming novels to be filmed by EON Productions. The shooting of this movie now means EON Productions has filmed the entire canon of Fleming James Bond novels, although some just in title (for example: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), and You Only Live Twice (1967)).


Quotes

Alex Dimitrios: I'm having a hard time seeing how this is my fault. It's your plan. All I did was get you the man.
Le Chiffre: A man who was under surveillance by the British Secret Service. Which makes me wonder if I can trust you at all.
Alex Dimitrios: Then don't. I couldn't care less. But I...


Goofs

(at around 2h) Bond has exited the Bank and the camera passes a shop window. In the reflection, a number of people can be seen facing the window, holding up camera phones as if they are watching the shot being taken. To the left of the shot, the reflection shows a man in a light top who is clearly sitting down and traveling with the camera dolly. He is looking left to right. He is using both hands to hold something in front of him that he is watching. On the right hand side of the frame, there is another person, also sitting down and traveling with the camera dolly. He faces right to left and is in a darker top.


Crazy Credits

The opening MGM and Columbia logos are in black & white, as part of the pre-title sequence.


Alternate Versions

The initial UK releases have minor edits in the torture scene to secure a commercially lucrative 12 certificate:

  • Le Chiffre draping the rope over Bond's shoulder, saying "Such a waste" and then removing it was cut (for being "a little too sexual" according to director Martin Campbell).
  • The rope swinging twice under the chair was shortened to one swing.
  • A close-up of Bond's grimacing face during the second whipping was cut (the two-shot of both characters that precedes and follows this close-up in the uncut version was extended to fill the gap).
The uncut version was passed with a 15 certificate in 2012 and is available on Blu-ray.
