Casino Royale – Episode 174
Welcome back to another episode of Movies that Make Us. We’ve survived the year that is January and we’ve moved into 00February. We’re taking a look at the Daniel Craig run as James Bond, and this week is Casino Royale.
Daniel Craig reinvents the beloved spy and puts his own spin on the character, bringing new levels of intensity and physicality to James Bond. This is actually the third film version of Ian Fleming’s 1953 novel of the same name, which is actually the first James Bond film. It’s the story of a young, raw, and unpolished Bond, who falls deeply for Vesper Lynd while trying to infiltrate a high stakes poker game against Mads Mikklesen’s villain Le Chiffre.
