This movie is BAD. There’s simply no other way to describe it. A script which demands Bond to give up style, and Bond Girls with no oomph factor just don’t add up to decent entertainment .The movie just goes to show how much better Bourne is when it comes to the portrayal of action sequences.
“A cracking action film, but nothing more. The emotional power, intelligence and sheer stylishness of Casino Royale has been lost amidst the noisy blur of sub-Bourne action sequences”-> that’s what a kind critic from the UK had to say but i doubt if he was watching the same as i was (there’s no arguing it was sub-Bourne though).
The action scenes are deliberately shown in a chaotic fashion and that directorial decision turned out to be a costly faux pas. Why spend all that money on stunts when you can’t capture them properly on the cam?
Daniel Craig as we all know oozes style in a rugged sort of way and that is all which is there to this movie. The Bond girl, Olga something plays a sun burnt or a fire burnt or some other burnt character and is a big letdown.
Watching any of the Bourne flicks at home is a much better alternative to watching Bond on the big screen. Bond may steer a plane like a car and wear designer suits like a czar but alas, he’s no action star.
I advice you to maintain a safe distance from this one. The poker scene from Casino Royale (which is quite a drab for non-poker players) is more entertaining than the whole of this movie.
