Casino Royale (2006)
30. Watch 101 new movies (30/101) (more info)
Shane’s Netflix pick was Casino Royale (2006), a James Bond movie. I haven’t seen many of the Bond movies so I can’t compare this to the others, however, I can’t say I liked it. Shane seemed to enjoy it so perhaps it’s a boy thing.
In this movie Bond must enter a high stakes, high dollar poker tournament to bring down a bad banker. It was pretty predicatble and cheesy, but perhaps that’s the norm. The acting was pretty good. Bond was fun to look at. And the effects and stunts were quite impressive. So I’m not going to say don’t watch this, because I think it was mearly a matter of preferences. However, I won’t be watching it again.
