Casino Royale 4/5 (C)

After Powers and Bourne it was clear that the Bond franchise would have to do something different in order for it to survive. The casting of Daniel Craig, an effective trailer and the involvement of Paul Haggis made this the only Bond film I've ever been interested in seeing; and it didn't disappoint. Occasionally it verges on the edge of ridiculousness with hammy lines and dodgy moments but it never takes these too far that they become laughable, in fact they almost seem a parody of former Bonds.
