Casino Royale

Be careful what you gamble on.

Overall C

This James Bond outing, starring Daniel Craig in the title role, features less flippant humor, more blood and (gasp!) less sex than past 007 movies.

However, concerning content still prevails with many scenes of hand-to-hand combat, people being shot (along with the usual bullets, a man is shot in the eye with a nail gun) and a naked man subjected to torture (it’s implied his testicles are the target of the attack—no explicit nudity is seen). Sensational and perilous stunts are shown throughout. In one scene, Bond seduces a woman in order to gain information—neither character removes their clothes and they are interrupted before things get too involved. Bond is also depicted passionately embracing another woman in a couple of instances. As well, the main character is shown consuming fancy alcoholic drinks and usually drives in a reckless manner—all in a day’s work…
