Casino Royale (2006)

The #2 Greatest 007 Film Of All-Time, Casino Royale exemplifies the maximum performance of Fleming’s novel series by taking us back to the super-spy’s ’50’s debut with pure modernized stylization, luxurious elegance, complex plot & characterization arcs, phenomenal Mads villain, visceral action, and the chilled, steely-intense, sardonic black comedy-fringed wit of a humanizable Daniel Craig: the best Bond to ever grace the screen. 9.5/10.

Plot Synopsis: After receiving a license to kill, British Secret Service agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) heads to Madagascar, where he uncovers a link to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a man who finances terrorist organizations. Learning that Le Chiffre plans to raise money in a high-stakes poker game, MI6 sends Bond to play against him, gambling that their newest “00” operative will topple the man’s organization.
