Martin Campbell United Kingdom, 2006

HKFanatic's rating of the film Casino Royale

Rewatching "Casino Royale" in preparation for "Spectre," I was once again taken in by the film's spectacular action sequences (director Martin Campbell is operating at McTiernan levels here), in-depth characterization, and stellar performances. Who knew the best way to revitalize James Bond for the 21st century was to give him a soul? For my money, this remains Daniel Craig's finest outing in the role.
