I agree with most of your views Kaylore on Casino Royale. The opening scene was great and the movie started out real good but then I thought the Poker game and the Love sequence definitley could've been kept shorter.
It was good to see no Q and unbelievable gadgets. Daniel Craig was very good as Bond. I liked how they introduced him and he was just starting out and was very vulnerable at some moments. It set ups the whole James Bond character and the other movies very good I think. From how he obtains the Aston Martin car to not trusting anyone and not falling for women and using them to his advantage.
