… the best Bond film ever.
Ok fine. I admit it. I love James Bond movies. I’m a tad bit over 40 and I’ve been watching them since I was in grade school. I’ve seen ‘em all, except for that George Lazenby thang, and Casino Royale is the best ever.
There. I said it out loud.
Daniel Craig is a Bond’s Bond.
And dammit, I didn’t want to like the little blue-eyed bugger.
Too short, I said.
Too blonde, I said.
Looks too feral, I thought.
I was wrong. There. I said that out loud too.
I was wrong because he wasn’t too short or too blonde, nor did he look anything like a weasel.
He was all-man, a man’s man, a bad boy, faster’n any Bond ever. A helluva fighter. Looked damn good in those tailored suits, too.
As Cowboy Troy would say,
” He ain’t no John Travolta, but he’s slicker than grease ! “
The effects are very 2006, which means they’re way better than waht Sean Connery had available to him.
The story required a badass, muscled up thug, which leaves out Roger Moore, who I dearly loved as Bond.
He had to endure some serious pain, and Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan weren’t quite the suffering type, me thinks.
This is a new Bond and it works very well in 2006 … and beyond I hope.
Who’d have thought you could like a blue-eyed Bond ?
Who’d have thought I would have to come home and search for the final scene’s villian, because I had forgotten who he was and where he came from.
Thanks to the power of the net, I don’t have to go watch it again just to find out.
But I may go see it again anyway.
Because it’s the best Bond film ever.
There. I said it out loud … again.
Credit goes to Sony for the photo I used to help promote their tremendous film. It came from the link I gave you to the movie.
