Casino Royale is best Bond in forty years

James Bond always was a badass. Daniel Craig just perfects it.

In last month’s film Casino Royale, the story of Bond (Craig) was revived by telling about how he came to be the suave, smooth man brought to life by the likes of Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.

However, Daniel Craig is no Pierce Brosnan, and we can be thankful for that.

He’s blonde; he has blue eyes, and he’s tough.

Forget about cheesy gadgets and expensive suits, this Bond is a real man.

With scars on his face and cuts on his hands, Craig dives into the character and delivers an incredibly human performance.

He’s young and hasn’t quite acquired the class and expertise of the other Bonds but still has enough arrogance to show that he means business.

While many 007 fans were hoping that another British import, Clive Owen, would be tapped to play Bond, they should not be disapointed to see Craig. He has proved himself as an actor.

In my opinion, Craig is the best Bond since Connery and has the potential to be the best ever. His uncanny ability to transform each scene into his personal playground for witty humor and caged aggression makes him lethal on the screen.

New to his career, this Bond is also not the womanizer that we all know him as but rather finds himself falling in love with Vesper Lynd, who is played brilliantly by the beautiful Eva Green.

Her performance is a breath of fresh air after dismal bouts by Denise Richards and Halle Berry in the past couple of films.

Green finds a way to bring humanity and elegance to a part once dominated by women who were thought of as nothing more than sex appeal.

She melts the screen and audiences’ hearts with her every word and thus penetrates Bond’s thick skin in an irresistible fashion.

Forget about all the stereotypes of the past Bonds, like invisible cars and terrible acting, and see one of the better films of the year.

Casino Royale will not disapoint those who wish to see a more realistic depiction of the man who has become a legend.
