Picture from Casino Royale
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. Yet, even with smart writing, astounding performances (Craig being the kingpin) and that classic Bond style, the depictions of perilous situations, sensational violence and high stakes gambling still make Casino Royale a questionable bet for older teens.

Violence D+
Sexual Content C
Profanity C

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of violent action, a scene of torture, sexual content and nudity
