Bond learns that Le Chiffre is going to Montenegro to play high stakes poker in the Casino Royale. Le Chiffre is going to raise enough money in the game to pay many these terror organizations off.

Bond is able to get in the game with help from M (Judi Dench) and she also sends an agent by the name of Vesper Lind (Eva Green) to watch out for Bond. You know keep him in line so to speak.

Bond has to team up with the local MI6 agent Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini) and with the help of CIA agent Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) they are going after Le Chiffre.

Daniel Craig as James Bond does add some flare to the character, who has been played by some very wonderful actors. Casino Royale is a wonderful movie in the field of James Bond 007.

Martin Campbell, gives a great entrance for Craig as Bond. The movie is quality Bond with the women, cars and action. Though it does have Bond falling for one of his women in the film. This movie does more for Craig as Bond then it did for George Lazenby who only lasted for one movie as Bond.

This is a fantastic movie to get to know Bond all over again and Craig does a wonderful job with the role.
