I get a lot of stick for this but I have never seen a Bond film until last night. The only reason I wanted to watch Casino Royale was because it has Eva Green in it and I’m a huge fan of hers. She’s a great actress and I think she did a great job in this film. She completely gained my trust, I was a bit gutted at the end when she betrayed him but it was a good film. I think the first hour of the film was really boring but once they got playing the poker game it got interesting and I was then compelled to watching it.
I’m just not a huge fan of James Bond, I don’t think he’s a very interesting character which is why I struggle to actually enjoy the films. I haven’t seen any of the other Bonds with other actors that play him so maybe if I watched one of them I might like the character. It might just be Daniel Craig I don’t like but I guess I’ll have to see.
