  • Greatest Spy Movies Round 1: Casino Royale v. Spy Game

    Casino Royale
    In Prague, James Bond earns his 00 status when he corners and kills corrupt MI6 section chief Dryden and his underground contact Fisher. In Uganda, Mr. White, a senior official in a shadowy organization, arranges a meeting between a terrorist tied banker, Le Chiffre, and Obanno, the leader of a guerrilla group seeking a safe haven for his funds. Le Chiffre assures the leader that there is "no risk in the portfolio," but his investments actually involve considerable risk: he short sells successful companies and then profits by engineering terrorist attacks to sink their stock values.

    Casino Royale with Daniel Craig, an excellent choice for Bond, at least he looks like he has been in a fight, unlike some past Bond's. I mean for example Brosnan, Bungee jumping off the dam and not an hair out of place. (Had to revise my original plan to give one vote to a Bond film)

      Casino Royale. The down and dirty Bond. He ran through a wall, after all. Like to see Brad try that.

            I agree. And I am not a big Bond fan, so not a hard choice for me.

                Darren, this is the new Daniel Craig Bond film. IMHO not even close to the quality of Connery's Bond.
