Casino Royale: Is Daniel Craig the real deal?
Sincerely speaking, i didnt see anything sexy, or romantic or sleek as the older Bonds have been. The guy was too temperamental, and exceptionally destructive, always leaving a trail. Which kind mistake is this?
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 8:08am On Dec 05, 2006|
Abeg the movie's the bomb diggity . I don't want to write long story coz am kindda disembodied right now. Craig may have the too rugged look plus his looks are more suitable for a villain but i doubt the older bonds would have pulled off the new Bond. Casino Royale, brings the Bond Franchise into the new millenium (can't find a word right now). Ok this doesnt mean am like totally cool with Craig as Bond, but what can we do. Unless the box office and producers say otherwise he is staying put.

I still cant figure out why the producers dropped pierce brosnan
Daniel craig doesnt have any form of Gentlemanly grace potrayed by brosnan and he has Rabbit ears
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 3:31am On Dec 20, 2006|
Once again! The producers didnt drop Pierce Brosnan, Pierce himself decided it was time to move on from the Bond Franchise and pursue other acting jobs and broaden his horizons!. Chaiii na wa o

After all the yabs, i think daniel craig has proven himself. I've never enjoyed a bond movie as much as i did casino royale. The guy might not have the chic bond look, and he might be James blonde. But the dude 'd proven himself as a great actor
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 7:25am On Dec 20, 2006|
I think he's a good actor but i think what made casino royale work wasnt solely based on his acting, more on the direction of where 'they' wanted to take the bond franchise to.

. . .and so saying, Bleep all Daniel Craig haters!!
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by texazzpete(m): 11:55am On Dec 20, 2006|
brosnan was dropped by the producers. he's in his early 60s, i believe, and was begining to show his age in die another day. besides, after Goldeneye, every other bond movie has gone steadily downhill,
critics loved craig! and remember that that was supposed to be bond's first mission, when he was still relatively raw,
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by opeemi1(m): 12:16pm On Dec 20, 2006|
The tradition of a Bond character as being slightly extinguished away. Craig is more like the everyday hero we see in most action films, but doesn't possess the traits of a bond character.
Casino Royale is cool.
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by bigspif(m): 12:41pm On Dec 20, 2006|
Daniel Craig realy tried despite the criticism and the booos from die hard fans like myself . And Casino Royale is a damn good movie, but the credits as someone mentioned is not solely from DC performance but can be from directing and the scripts. It is also potraying a new 21 century bond flick with all the latest screen magic, gimmicks and stunts.
I miss Pierce Brosnan , he could have equally done justice to the flick, cos he is slicker and more refined than DC , he acts bond like a second skin and up to the task without showing much machomania as DC.
As far as i will be watching flicks like Casino Royale, i dont give a hoot who is behind the bond suit. Im proud to say ive been following the bond franchise since a kid and has all the bond movies in my collection.
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by mufasa(m): 7:29pm On Dec 20, 2006|
think my best part of the movie was that free running scene in the beginning, i ve seen something like that in french movie i saw BARRIO B -13 or somethung like that, cool stunts.
IMO he aint the best of bonds but he pulled it off
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by Nobody: 1:02am On Dec 21, 2006|
Did anyone notice that this current james bond had blond hair? I mean he had this russian look, Im suprised his name wasnt "Boris"
The movie was really cool, but this guy wasnt smooth, see as in dey rack like tout
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by LondonCool(m): 9:47pm On Dec 21, 2006|
I have just finished wqatching the Casino Royale film. My best bits were the free running scenes by the Black French guy. The ending of the film wasnt properly scripted to me. Daniel Criag just appears over the guy who scammed the $40m Casino winnings and told him the franchise line, "My name is Bond, James Bond". The ending just reminded me of Nigerian films that try to prepare the way for a Part 2. There was no attempt to show whether James Bond was able to recover the money or not; also , the scene where James Bond is inside the water trying to rescue the double-agent (Bonds girl) from the cage, how come they were both under the water for the same length of time but only James Bond has a special set of lungs to make him survive under water while she dies
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 4:03am On Dec 22, 2006|
Early 60s? Really? Didnt know he was that old, coz he's still hot! but no he wasnt dropped and no not every bond movie has gone steadily downhill since Goldeneye, Die another day make a lot of money although i guess it can be attributed to the bankability of Halle Berry.
But in the end, whether we b!tch and moan about Pierce, he ain't coming back and we are stuck with DC although its not a hardship, i love the direction the new bond is going. Even though i still think his looks are a bit too rugged for the part, heck! we can't have our cake and eat it too, so yeah i got past the 'unsuitableness' of DC and am comfy now
Loved that part too, especially when the guy jumps through the small space at the top of the door or was it a wall? and DC just smashed right through it like the cave man he is
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by Mustay(m): 10:09am On Dec 24, 2006|
There wasn't anything spectacular about d casino royale. DANIEL CRAIG is okay but this is just soooo dry 4 an 007. D suspense is not gripping, and i just got annoyed that after all d Hype, THAT WAS JUST IT!
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by toptho(f): 12:22pm On Dec 24, 2006|
I heard on an entertainment show that brosnan didnt know he was dropped but he found out when daniel craig asked him a question about being bond.If that was the case that was a great Oops!
i am still not feeling Craig as a bond,the script was the great winner in the film and not craig per se
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by obedz(m): 12:34am On Dec 25, 2006|
abi o, i dont know why they will use Daniel Craig to replace almightly sexy pirce bronsman the two are incompareble and beside Daniel Craig is too short and blond , tats wack. Havnt u guys thought about a black james bond
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 8:30am On Dec 25, 2006|
Make una stop complaining, the movie has been done and over with, shown and brought in alot of revenue, reviews by critiques have been really good and the bond franchise has been moved into the 21st century. If all the attempted and executed boycotting didnt do anything to stop the release by the production company, the grumbling and complaining now will do absolutely nothing to deterred them now more so because of the response to the film in terms of sales. Live with it, shooting of the 2nd bond movie has been into production even before the 1st was released. As for a black bond, no not vibing that one at all. Its like having a white 'Shaft' no way.
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by beebop(f): 10:57pm On Dec 25, 2006|
I thought Daniel Craig was steaming in the role, very different, very rugged and he could still pull off the suave, *still drooling*, anyways, according to Ian Fleming, Bond isn't supposed to be a pretty boy, Go see Layer Cake, a British film, Craig is amazing there,
And the stunts in the beginning is a French martial arts called parkour, the French film it was in is called District B13, highly entertaining film by the way, fabulous, and it wasn't stunts, the jumping was for real,
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by bioye(m): 5:36pm On Dec 28, 2006|
For those of you who don't like Daniel Craig, don't worry he'll soon subconsciously get immersed into your psyche and it would soon seem as if he's been Bond all his life.
Yeah, the beginning of the movie is much better than the ending. Yes, the black guy jumping through the narrow slit and Bond passes through the wall were great parts.
Also, the way he did the decoy, killed the black guy and blew up the whole place.
And, I don't think the Bond girl is not hot enough.
The movie is good but I hate the fact that the beginning is better than the end!!
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by Gamine(f): 6:52am On Dec 30, 2006|
Casino Royale was totally cool
Daniel Craig, i was pessimistic abt him at first
but when i watchd the movie it was a new story.
if u dont get the concept of him being rugged u cnt get anything
this was his first tym as 007 u dont expect him to be all sleek and smooth , eh
Well, it was reli tite!
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by obedz(m): 10:08am On Dec 30, 2006|
seems everyone is on daniels side, i guess am left wit no option but to follow too. Sorry Bronsman i gtg
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by Jalal(m): 11:07pm On Jan 02, 2007|
Couldnt have put it better myself REAL DRY
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by funkydiva(f): 12:19pm On Jan 04, 2007|
Alot of things were off about this new bond. first of all bond isn't blond and i feel the guy is too big and not as attractive or charming as his predeccessors. the chase scene at the beginning was sick, luvd it. also the bond girl this time was as attractive as a stick. they shud have used the first chic that they killed off too quickly she was more sexier. the movie was not the best bond movie, lets just hope the next one steps up.
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by Gamine(f): 1:32pm On Jan 04, 2007|
Daniel Craig is not even blond, hes tawny
And it wasnt dry, where the heck do u guys come from, this movie was off da hook!!!!!
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 2:35pm On Jan 04, 2007|
I don't know o, he's charming, verily not attractive in the smooth suave way, but he has got his charms.
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by strongarm1(m): 11:59pm On Jan 08, 2007|
Daniel Craig pulled it off, dont care what ya`ll say, he maynot be as handsome as the other bonds but he is tough built and kicks butts faster than all the others daniels craig is like built to hurt i tell ya, notice he didnt use much of "hightechs" just brains and balls(he almost lost those lol) talk about hand-to-hand combat oh he is good, yeah hes earned the 00 status alright,
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by RiffRaff: 9:29am On Jan 23, 2007|
who so ever choose Daniel Craig as the new James bond is blind.
I'm a James bond fan and i am so disappointed in Craig's cinematic skills. the guy be like tout, unromantic with a big tummy. not handsome.
emeka ike fit act better than this guys.
after watching casino royal, i played tomorrow never dies again and saw the difference between brosnan and Craig.
the producer better start searching for a new james bond or else them go run down.
i miss brosnan
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by jaybaby(f): 4:04pm On Jan 23, 2007|
Yea haterzzz of Craig shld Bleep OFF
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by iice(f): 8:31pm On Jan 23, 2007|
Run down? Dream on, looks like you didnt see the money Casino Royale brought in. In the end big production companies are only interested in the 'returns'. Only if the second movie flops would the producers even thinking about re-casting. He doesn't have a big tummy lol. he's very fit jare
|Re: Casino Royale: With Daniel Craig As James Bond by uchetobi(f): 10:30am On Jan 26, 2007|
