As previously reported by CBn, Casino Royale is making its way to several Top 10 lists of entertainment and news sites around the world. Since then, several other websites have added their lists…
Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film is ranked #5 overall on Clint’s Top 10 on Moviehole. ‘If you’re ever going to try and re-invent Bond, you get the guy that did GoldenEye, Martin Campbell,’ he says. ‘Campbell knows how to breathe life into a struggling franchise, and does it again here with flying colours. He’s inserted the exhilaration back into the series.
On the NY Daily News, Casino Royale is #7: ‘I haven’t enjoyed a James Bond movie this much since the earliest Sean Connery editions, before the franchise went all high-tech and started casting dandies like Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan … Daniel Craig is a real 007.’
Demetrios Matheou also placed Casino Royale in his Top 10 on the Sunday Herald, saying: ‘The bone-crunchingly realistic action scenes were accompanied by a pleasing fidelity to the card games and testicle-bashing of Fleming’s novel. Casino Royale ensured that, for the first time anyone can remember, at the end of a Bond film we’re actually looking forward to the next.
