He reminds me more of the Origi Bond during his hey (early) days as agent 007; Sir Sean Connery [minus the hair color]. I wanna believe he's got what it takes to keep that role on lock-down, and like Kikis said, he's also got this 'steeliness and intensity' about him that I think will be a plus in the longrun; I mean.. come on.. the role's bound to evolve over time and I'm sure the audience'll warm up to him soon enoff. And, I don't think he's 'ugly', maybe not 'cute' in the swoonish way that appeals to most young girls, but I'd say he's a handsome [and hopefully a fine] actor

Daniel Craig Interview, Casino Royale

At the recent New York City press day for the new James Bond film "Casino Royale,” Movies Online caught up with Daniel Craig who plays the new 007. Craig delivers an impressive performance in his first outing as the formidable secret agent and leaves no doubt that he has what it takes to reinvigorate the long standing franchise for a 21st century audience. Based on the 1953 novel by Ian Fleming, "Casino Royale” explores Bond’s early career and how he came to be the legendary 007.

Craig, who is a theatrically trained actor, takes the role seriously and brings dimension, complexity, subtlety, and magnetism to his performance that hasn’t been seen on screen since Sean Connery first appeared as James Bond in "From Russia With Love” over 40 years ago. In fact, the rugged featured, charismatic actor may just be the best Bond since Connery. His modern version of Bond, while a bit grimmer and more realistic, remains dashing and true to the original spirit of Fleming's inspired creation.

Craig's Bond is tough, arrogant, humane, sadistic, and vulnerable – all rolled into one. And he hasn’t lost his sense of humor even when he’s angry. When asked by the bartender in one particularly intense scene if he would like his martini shaken or stirred, he responds with a dangerous glint in his eyes, "Do I look like I give a damn?’ There's no doubt he means business and he'll take his drink straight up if he has to.

Daniel Craig is a sensational actor and we appreciated him taking time out of his busy schedule to sit down with us and talk about the challenge of becoming the new Bond, working opposite Eva Green, and his plans for 007’s future. Here's what he had to say:

Q: So, did you let yourself go after you wrapped production?

DC: You mean physically let myself go or mentally let myself go? I did a little bit of both after it. I went on holiday and let myself go in lots of ways. But that was just because we were in France and eating good food and drinking lots of wine. And I have kept up going to the gym, but not quite as intensely as I was doing it during the film.

Q: Have you had time to breathe yet?

DC: It wasn’t like that because we went straight into long-lead press, a junket for a week, where I actually had to go talk about the movie just as we finished it. And it was one of the most bizarre experiences because I hadn’t given it any thought. I’d been just working. People were going, ‘What’s it like to be Bond?’ And I didn’t know. I still don’t really know. And then we went on holiday. So it’s kind of never stopped. As much as I went away on holiday, the phone was ringing every day and we were discussing stuff about how we were going to do this and how we’re going to do that and what the next stage is. It’s a full-time job. It’s a good job, though.

Q: We heard you indulged in several vodka martinis when you got the role. Were you a fan of the drink?

DC: No, no. Believe me, a good one; nothing is like it. I’m not bad at mixing them, either. I used to do that in pubs, in bars. I’m quite particular about them.

Daniel Craig Delivers-Big Time

He did it man, In short I'm rooting for this guy big time now! Cant wait to watch it!!!grinning: Great reviews, and raking in the millions! Commercially, grossed more at the box office in its first week than any other Bond film ever. people love it, cant wait to watch it!

Critic's reviews quite good all around:

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1808476050/critic


I just knew he'd pull it off. I dont care if he's blond or if he's not so fine (thats relative BTW). He's set to be the best Bond since Connery by so many reviews, and that says a lot!!!!

I don't think he's ugly, just 'craiggy' I mean craggy; i.e. his face.
The film will throw off Bondites because it is like eating egusi soup after eating okro for so long. He does not fit the smooth, suave Bond image but maybe that's the point; maybe he wasn't meant to.

Casino Royale

As the new Bond, Daniel Craig had at least four things going against him
1. New Bond
2. Blond Bond
3. Ugly Bond
4. Bond without gadgets

I really wanted Pierce Brosna to shoot Casino Royal and was really mad at the choice of Daniel Craig. I just couldn’t see how this dude would pull it off and what type of story it would be without the usual Bond's gadgets... Well I saw the Movie with my sister on Saturday the 18th (My birthday) She is actually Daniel Craig's biggest critic and had already planned not to see the movie, but went because of me. What can I say?... the guy blew us away (At two and half hour we still couldnt get enough of the movie)

This is the best Bond movie ever made period! Daniel Craig is awesome! The storyline/dialogue is superior and more realistic than previous Bond movies and it is also very funny. The thing about Daniel Craig is, he is not the smooth stylish Bond... He is rather the Area-Boy type Bond who would rather put on a khaki and shirt than the beautiful tailor made suit.... Just seeing him for what he is, Area-boy would make you enjoy the movie more... He was fussing over his tailor made suit and sometimes takes the tie off to look like an Area-boy lol I say Dude fell in love so deep that he quits his job as 007 (Don’t worry this has nothing on the story) but it would make you laugh so much Chai! The power of women sha! But make no mistake, the guy is like a Machine...we were calling him "Machine" throughout the movie. All in all I give this movie a 10 and Daniel Craig a 10.... Thank God the movie wasn’t a disaster, am going to see it again in a week or two..

To all fans of James Bond, you don’t have to worry or fear because you will enjoy this movie very much...and to the rest who are not into the gadgets and all that, this is a very good movie to see. By the way the guy's physique is awesome... As much as I love Piece Brosna I am sorry to say Daniel Craig killed that role better than any other before him (I heard this is the closest thing to Ian Fleming's Bond) With his physique and stunts He makes the others look like Aje-butter Bond :)
