    Less than a minute of this convinces me that I certainly won't be the one casting the first stone.

    I try not to look for faults. I simply enjoy the films. ;)

    There are three troublesome issues with CR (that I simply overlook):

    1. Why the hell chase Mollaka to the top of the construction crane? This makes no sense. Once up there, Mollaka is trapped. Abd by getting into a fight with him, Bond was risking killing Mollaka (whom he neede alive, right?) but then ended up killing anyway. I usually just chalk this up to arrogance.

    2. Playing poker against LeChiffre was unnecessary. Once he bought in and strated the game, all MI6 and/or the CIA had to do was abduct him. Once he stopped showing up at the table, he would have forfeited his money. That would have brought on the desired result.

    3. Vesper's role is still unclear to me--as is Mathis's--and I will likely never be able to figure it out. Even after reading the novel, the film version made no sense. It would appear that LeChiffre didn't know Vesper was on his side, thought Mathis was. But then...what deal was she able to strike to save Bond's life? makes no sense. The only deal was the money for her boyfriend. But then...why would the Organization make that kind of deal???? It's stupid. If ahead of time the Organization didn't trust LeChiffre's ability to win the money back, then why not take him out before the card game in the first place? The whole thing is a mess.

    But WTH....it's a great film.

    FWIW, SF had fewer "sins"...



    But these reviews are 100% entertainment, anyway. Idaho IS a real place. LOL

    10.49-10.53 is best part of that CR update.

    This new video, also created new quistion. Why Quantum thinks the dead guy whas her boyfriend. Because from QOS we know her dead friend whas not same guy as on picture/ her real boyfriend at the end of movie. Again why Quantum thinks the dead guy whas boyfriend.

    Never be fan of Vesper, because of Eva Greene and missing background of her chacter and not liked / never understand that part of Casino Royale. To understand some other parts we need QOS first.
  • The funniest part of this vid is when they contrast Bond concerning the bomber...

    ''Holster the bloody weapon i need him alive! ''

    But 5 mins later he shoots him dead!

    The mostlegitimate criticism is Felix Leiter.Once Bond beats Le Chiffre at the car game, Bond says '' Hes all yours '' and then Felix disappears from the story! What the hell?

    Did you watch/ pay attention to the film?

    Yes, Bond wanted to capture him. But he was eventually captured himself at the end of the chase in the embassy. Bond knew he wouldnt be able to get away with him so he figured he was better off dead than alive. As he told M the world was better off with one less bombmaker.
  • Oh, I thought this was about Casino Royale 1966. But I guess that would have taken a little longer...

    Unfortunately, we don't have All the Time in the World.

    I've waited so long.

    It definetly still has more sins than CR.They should have added at least 100 more sins for the shaky cam not 10.
