    Minor Plot Spoilers

    The Sun claims to have attended a preview screening of Casino Royale and today offers readers their review of the newest 007 film.

    The hook? ‘Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Connery… [his] performance is so strong he could even make moviegoers forget there was anyone between himself and Connery.’

    It was previously revealed on CBn that Casino Royale would have a run time of approximately 140 minutes, and that is apparently a bit too long according to The Sun. ‘You will need to concentrate as you follow the story because, running at a whopping two hours and 20 minutes, the movie is 20 minutes too long.’

    ‘A healthy bit of editing would have avoided confusing scenes where some characters appear and disappear inexplicably. And, often, the characters do things for no apparent reason.’

    ‘Fortunately, the action sequences more than compensate for the complicated plot.’

    ‘Campbell has ditched the computer-generated imagery and gone back to real stunts–which give Casino Royale a real awe factor. The set-piece with a terrorist called Mollaka crackles with energy.’
