Casino Royale: Long – Way Long…..

26-Nov-06 04:42 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

I love Bond flicks – always have, always will.  And make no mistake, the latest chapter in Ian Fleming’s fictional dynasty is another jewel in this crowning achievement of action movie entertainment.  An oasis of something really enjoyable that might make the average person actually want to get back into a theatre rather than settling for a cheap, grainy pirated donwload off the net.  But for all that’s great about Casino Royale, there was one drawback.  At 140 minutes, it’s starting to stray into "too long" territory.  And there were sure times when the new bond character was dewlling overmuch on the romance.

Other critics have paid attention to the blonde, muscle-bound bond being too thuggy to meet the demands of a dark, suave and mysterious spy character.  However, there’s plenty of action too and consistent intrigue to make the first fair-haried 007 quite believable.  His penchant for martinis even gets him in quite a pickle in the plot too.  Yes, there’s no mistaking this is indeed the Bond we’re all familiar with.

So stop those torrents now!  This movie is worth it – get up and away from your console.  And not because the MPAA wants ya to say no to piracy: but because it’s worth saying ‘yes’ to Casino Royale.
