2006. Great Britain. Directed by Martin Campbell. With Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Giancarlo Giannini. Goodbye Pierce Brosnan, welcome Daniel Craig. Le Chiffre, banker to terrorists, organizes a very high-stakes poker game at Montenegro’s Casino Royale in order to recoup some much-needed capital. Bond joins the game, ready to thwart any gains by his opponent—and drag him back to MI6 headquarters for interrogation. Craig’s Bond is dark, moody, unfriendly, and more of a brawler than a gentleman. As usual, 007 is irresistible to the ladies, but this time he falls deeply in love with Vesper Lynd. 145 min.
