Default Casino Royale, anyone seen it? How many stars do you give it?

Both the movie and Daniel Craig have been getting rave reviews. It has a metascore of 80 on the metacritic site, which is very high!

Has anyone had a chance to see this yet? If so, what are your thoughts?

I am a Bond Fan and was not happy about losing PB. However even though I am not over it I would like to see it. They at least should have gave the guy some contacts for the love of Pete. James Bond doesnt have Ocean Blue eyes ! And I LOVE Judy Dench but how is she M way back then ?

But I don't think it is actually set 30 years ago, as the Aston Martin in the movie is one of the latest ones. Plus, Bond uses a BD player in the movie too!

It certainly isn't 30 year prior. Nice luxury boats and cell phones and DB9's we're present here baby.

Daniel Craig did a great job. The story was a little weak but the action was great. The movie contains one of the best foot chases I've ever seen.

It isset in modern day, plus it is fiction.

Aren't 007 movies supposed to have great car chases? rubber tires not rubber shoes Saw the movie yesterday, IMO it was pretty good. Lots of action and for the first time in all the bond movies ive seen, character development ( J Bond ). I do have one minor gripe, where's all the cool gadgets? i think i only saw 3. 1)car 2)phones 3)defibrillator. Oh and the bluray i almost forgot.

The film will get dated quite quickly when HD-DVD ends up winning the format war!

Sony went a bit overboard with the Sony-Erickson phone and the Vaios. Product placement in movies is ok but come one don't turn the movie into a commercial.

They do seem to especially overdo it in the Bond movies, I kind of come to expect it nowadays!
