    Casino Royale traces the early career of James Bond (Craig) as he is elevated to “00” status. “M” (Dench), head of the British Secret Service, sends Bond on his first “007” mission leading him to Le Chiffre (Mikkelsen), banker to the world’s terrorists. In order to stop him and bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a high-stakes poker game at Casino Royale. Bond is initially annoyed when a beautiful treasury official, Vesper Lynd (Green), is assigned to deliver his stakes for the game and watch over the government’s money. But as Bond and Vesper survive a series of nearly lethal attacks by Le Chiffre and his henchmen, a mutual affection develops, leading Bond to learn his most important lesson: trust no one.

    Ha! They spelled Fleming wrong in the press release. I'll buy it anyway.

    I loved this film. The extras seem a little on the light side, though. Should we expect a double dip when Bond 22 comes out?

    40 bucks for Blue Ray? Not to put it bluntly, but are they out of their F'in minds? That kind of pricing went out with Laserdisc!

    No wonder the format aint taking off like a rocket.

    List prices are list prices. And yes, this one is high. But in the real word my order for the Casino Royale Blu-ray Disc from amazon is $24.52. While under $20 would be nice, $25 for a great movie in high definition on BD ain't bad at all.
