James Bond: Casino Royale

Bond Year Zero

(Edit) 18/03/2007

With the introduction of Daniel Craig as a new Bond, this doesn't just add more to the familiar formula – it creates a whole new mould. When did Connery, Moore, Dalton et al ever get believable plot, actual scars from fighting, or, dare it be said, emotional depth? Craig as Bond spends the film ridiculing the past conventions that we have known and loved, the Martinis, the dapper dressing, the sheer invincibility. Why couldn't every Bond in the franchise have been like this?
