"Daniel Craig is the best Bond in the franchise's history." Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York.
When James Bond is elevated to "00" status, M, head of the British Secret Service, sends him on his first mission as 007. The mission leads him to Montenegro where he faces off against a ruthless terrorist financier, Le Chiffre, in a high stakes poker game at the Casino Royale. M places Bond under the watchful eye of Treasury Official Vesper Lynd. At first skeptical of Vesper, Bond's interest in her deepens as they brave danger together. Le Chiffre's cruelty comes to bear on them both in a way Bond could never have imagined and he learns his most important lesson: Trust no one. -- (C) Sony Pictures, 2006, UK/USA/Czech Republic/Germany/Bahamas.
