Casino Royale

Casino Royale (2006)

Martin Campbell (GoldenEye) directs this film adaptation (the 21st of the Bond franchise) of Ian Fleming's first novel. Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) debuts as the new Bond, who takes on a corrupt casino owner with ties to terrorists. You'll learn Bond's back story as the action-packed film takes you to the Bahamas, Madagascar and other exotic locales. Eva Green and Jeffrey Wright join the cast, and the sublime Judi Dench reprises her role as M.
My Two Cents: Craig's dark-yet-debonair take on 007 marks a refreshing reinvention of a series that had become little more than a product placement vehicle rife with bad one-liners.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
