That was the basic idea behind this review is the absurdity of the Daniel Craig phenomenon. What was interesting was that I was trying to get people on other forums to suggest positive views of the film for the other character to say, and NOBODY, I mean nobody offered any words at all! But of course, the minute I put this review up, it's like "Oh you're completely wrong about this film and here's why... blah blah blah." "A little late buddy!" Oh well...

Awww, I actually like that film. You do bring up some good points for how to strengthen the film, but I think the whole film should have been aborted. We didn't need a sequel to CASINO ROYALE, it was great the way it was. Just make another movie!

No, but funny enough my dad used to do a show in San Diego called Disasterpiece Theatre (It's on YouTube) way before MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER, where they would show the worst movies of all time and do sketches in-between. The MST3K guys probably ripped him off, but my dad's show is where I got a lot of ideas from... that and the Nostalgia Critic (we mention that in the review).

Exactly! Craig is a fine actor, he's just not James Bond. He has his moments, and as Timothy Dalton was the man for LICENSE TO KILL, Craig was the man for CASINO ROYALE. But apart from that film, he's just a borefest in the role.

Thank you so much for that great review video, LordoftheJimmy!
You're welcome! I don't consider 67 CASINO ROYALE in the same category with these other Bonds, it was REALLY bad, but I'd rather watch MOONRAKER or A VIEW TO A KILL anytime over QUANTUM. At least those movies don't take themselves too seriously. It's really the pretentiousness of QUANTUM that I hate most of all.

I don't think so. Remember back in the 90s when Pierce Brosnan was the greatest Bond of them all and people were saying he was better than Connery? Well things seemed to have really changed by now. Daniel Craig will make a really bad bond film at the end of his career and everyone will say "Oh he was the worst Bond ever! (Whoever takes over afterwards) is the best James Bond!" And round and round we go.
