Action Adventure - It's not quite your typical Bond. It's much more realistic and
brutal. It's sort of like the Batman series, very good but sort of
over the top and unrealistic until "Batman Returns," which was much
more dark and realistic.
PROFANITY: Just 12 somewhat mild profanities. SEX/NUDITY: Implied sexual activity. Typical Bond stuff. VIOLENCE: Lots of brutal fighting and killing, but nothing especially graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some drinking, nothing excessive. ACTION: Several long action scenes that don't disappoint. COMEDY: Less humor than previous Bonds.
Roger EbertFull Review Good The problems arise because this edition is too lengthy and too complicated, but it still isn't really about anything other than introducing Craig as the next Bond...
USA TodayFull Review Good Craig has signed on for more Bond action, which is good news. His menacing, but human, interpretation of the spy adds an intriguing dimension to the role and has reignited a rather tired and predictable series.

CASINO ROYALE traces the early career of James Bond. His first "007” mission leads
him to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), banker to the world's terrorists. In order to stop him
and bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a high-stakes poker
game at Casino Royale. Bond is initially annoyed when a beautiful Treasury official,
Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), is assigned to deliver his stake for the game and watch over
the government's money. But as Bond and Vesper survive a series of lethal attacks by
Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a mutual attraction develops, leading them both into
further danger and events that will shape Bond's life forever.
