Product Description

Casino Royale (Two-Disc Collect

From Amazon.co.uk

The most successful invigoration of a cinematic franchise since Batman Begins, Casino Royale offers a new Bond identity. Based on the Ian Fleming novel that introduced Agent 007 into a Cold War world, Casino Royale is the most brutal and viscerally exciting James Bond film since Sean Connery left Her Majesty's Secret Service. Meet the new Bond; not the same as the old Bond. Daniel Craig gives a galvanising performance as the freshly minted double-0 agent. Suave, yes, but also a "blunt instrument," reckless and possessed with an ego that compromises his judgment during his first mission to root out the mastermind behind an operation that funds international terrorists. In classic Bond film tradition, his global itinerary takes him to far-flung locales, including Uganda, Madagascar, the Bahamas (that's more like it) and Montenegro, where he is pitted against his nemesis in a poker game, with hundreds of millions in the pot. The stakes get even higher when Bond lets down his armour by falling in love with Vesper (Eva Green), the ravishing banker's representative fronting him the money.

For longtime fans of the franchise, Casino Royale offers some retro kicks. Bond wins his iconic Aston Martin at the gaming table, and when a bartender asks if he wants his martini "shaken or stirred," he disdainfully replies, "Do I look like I give a damn?". There's no Moneypenny or "Q," but Dame Judi Dench is back as the exasperated M who, one senses, admires Bond's "bloody cheek." A Bond film is only as good as its villain, and Mads Mikkelsen as Le Chiffre, who weeps blood, is a sinister dandy. From its punishing violence and virtuoso action sequences to its romance, Casino Royale is a Bond film that, in the words of one character, 'makes you feel it', particularly during an excruciating torture sequence. Double-0s, Bond observes early on, "have a short life expectancy". But with Craig, there is new life in the old franchise yet, as well as genuine anticipation for the next one when, at last, the signature James Bond theme kicks in following the best last line ever in any Bond film. To quote Goldie Hawn in Private Benjamin, "now I know what I've been faking all these years". --Donald Liebenson

Rather than focussing on the film, which is well reviewed, here is a quick run-down of the extras on this "Deluxe Blu-Ray" version over the DVD Collector's Edition and original Blu-ray versions and the DVD Deluxe Edition.

Firstly, those interested in the Blu-ray version over the DVD will be keen to know that all of the extras are in high definition, with the exception of the "Bond Girls" and "Chris Cornell music video" extras which are DVD resolution. Obviously there are some shots within the other extras that aren't full HD quality.

This is a superb Blu-ray release in all aspects apart from one: it is cut in the torture scene. Most of us would agree that the film itself is an exciting modern incarnation of Bond, and the quality of this release certainly does it justice. Picture and audio quality are sublime, and the extras are first rate.

If you can live with the cut, this is the Blu-ray for you. If you can't, buy the deluxe edition from amazon.fr. It is uncut, region B (same as UK) and features the same high quality transfer and extras. The English audio is still presented in TrueHD, and the menus even load up in English. The box for the French Blu-ray doesn't have the swish cover, and it costs you a little more to import it, but the delivery service from amazon.fr is exemplary, and it's more than worth the trouble.

If you are a purist like me who hates cuts and wants to watch the film as the director intended, this is the Blu-ray for you. Casino Royale might have moved to Montenegro in this film adaptation of the book, but if you want the real Casino Royale, France is still the place to look.

Trivia.
1)The three-piece suit worn by James Bond at the end of the film is a navy version of the gray suit worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger (1964).
2)Daniel Craig actually rejected the part of James Bond a year before as he had felt that the series had settled into a standard formula, He changed his mind when he read the finished script.
3)In one afternoon's shooting, three Aston Martin DBS cars valued at $300,000 each were destroyed for the car roll sequence.
4)The opening parkour chase took 6 weeks to film.
5)The way Bond orders his first vodka martini is lifted directly from the Ian Fleming novels.

Format: DVD
When Pierce Brosnan stepped down due to issues regarding his age it was unclear who would take his place. Then Craig won the role and the producers and writers decided to take the series in a whole new direction. And so they returned to the very first Fleming novel and gave it new life. The first thing that is immediately noticeable is the gritty, realistic style of direction and the more serious, but still at times humorous, nature of the script.
Craig steps into Brosnan's shoes admirably and he is, in my opinion, the best Bond there ever has been and most likely will be. His acting style combines all that is needed for a good Bond and he delivers a brilliant performance, bringing a sense of realism to the role and making Bond a flawed character. But its the script that gives Craig so much to work with and the dialogue is sharp, witty and extremely well written. The Bond girl, Eva Green, is beautiful and sexy and she too delivers a great performance. Other cast members, Judi Dench and Mads Mikkelsen as M and the villian Le Chiffe also deserve praise.
As for the plot, its full of great action set pieces, an awesome opening chase and fight scene and many more after that.
But the main stoyline is Bond who must play a complex game of poker that will allow the villian (Mads) to fund the terrorists he works for. The style of direction is slick, fast paced and stylish and there is never a dull moment. The exotic scenery and locations are used to full effect and the initial chase and fight scene is one of the best Bond moments ever filmed. As usual the cars are stunning, but not used, as previously, as gimmiks (invisible car: die another day) and the gadgets, whilst still present are not used to the point that they are silly and unbelievable.
