He learns that Dimitrios is involved with Le Chiffre Mads Mikkelsen , banker to the world's terrorist organizations. Secret Service intelligence reveals that Le Chiffre is planning to raise money in a high-stakes poker game in Montenegro at Le Casino Royale. MI6 assigns to play against him, knowing that if Le Chiffre loses, it will destroy his organization.
At first skeptical of what value Vesper can provide, Bond's interest in her deepens as they brave danger together and even torture at the hands of Le Chiffre. The marathon game proceeds with dirty tricks and violence, raising the stakes beyond blood money, and reaching a terrifying climax. He's back with a vengeance. His introduction is a sparring partner of intelligence and brutality, his mission is to take the ultimate gamble and place his life on the line in the arenas of terrorism and the ivory towers of power.
Taking Bond around the world once more, but it is in Casino Royale where this battle of wit and cunning will take place, taking no prisoners and leaving nothing but death in his wake. This gripping updated Ian Fleming story is dealt with the expectancy of urgency and drama that when the chips are down this action packed high-octane movie will deliver what England expects.

But the good things are lost, too often, in the frantic scurrying back and forth before the cameras. The steady hand of Terence Young , who made the original Bond films credible despite their gimmicks, is notably lacking here. I suppose a film this chaotic was inevitable.
There has been a blight of these unorganized comedies, usually featuring Sellers, Allen, and-or Jonathan Winters , in which the idea is to prove how zany and clever everyone is when he throws away the script and goes nuts in front of the camera. Sellers was the funniest comedian in the movies when he was making those lightly directed low-budget pictures like "I'm All Right, Jack.
And so are the movies he graces. One wishes Charlie Feldman had sat down one bright morning, early in the history of this film, and announced that everyone simply had top get organized.

Good hypothetical: what if year-old Henry Cavill got the nod? He reached the last two — and his subsequent career proves Bond would have been well within his capabilities, perhaps even then. It feels a little jarring: a piece of the previous film colliding into this one. Does the Casino Royale not have any security cameras? But then what about the shower cuddle…? Tough business, this screenwriting lark.
The poisoning incident, however, is very good. I love the jarring white of the toilet as Bond downs his salt: very trippy. And the highly amusing commentary from MI6 Casino Royale is much funnier than many people credit. How Bond could to forget to plug in the defibrillator. Vesper sure sussed it quickly — must teach you all sorts on accountancy courses.
Presumably she was too soft-hearted to follow her mission and let the unhelpful agent die. Felix accomplishes this trick. As a moderately keen player I appreciate the lunacy of the hands without getting overly aggravated — as some of my more serious poker playing friends do.
And nobody but Bond has ever noticed this before now. Only one hand on the entire board could beat him: four jacks, which of course Le Chiffre has. But the odds of that hand are ludicrously long. He seems pretty confident for a man facing an overcard. Admire your balls sir. I should stress, none of the above is a critique. But the permutations give me much joy and I wanted to share it. How does he even know Bond suspects Mathis?
Two desperate men with nothing to lose. A battle of wills. The most wince-inducing use of a rope ever depicted on screen. For one of the great heroes of cinema, Bond is rarely heroic. Superhuman frequently but rarely heroic; being infallible means you rarely need to be brave.
But faced with certain death he never falters. Never even blinks. Gorgeous, gorgeous scene from everybody: actors, writers, director, even the guy who made the chair. But enter Mr White and exit Le Chiffre. This must be so.
Not only does it mimic the book but the Le Chiffre storyline is done, the game is over. But of course Vesper must be exposed so on we plod to Venice. Yet the dramatic tension is lost; the climax has come and gone. My theory? Spiritually the last twenty minutes of Casino Royale are in fact the first twenty of Quantum Of Solace.
Why has Vesper withdrawn the money? Who is the guy with the eyepatch? Where did Mr. White come from? Some questions are answered, some are left unresolved, but the whole thing would work much better with a bit of prior explanation. Essentially, the film bottles it. The need for action at the close trumps narrative coherency.
Even if he does have a eyepatch. At the very least Eyepatch should have been introduced much earlier in the film. And there we have it. An instant classic from the moment it came out. Daniel Craig proves himself the best Bond of the lot bar the untouchable Connery. This is his finest hour. And pretty damn fine it is. Skip to main content area.

Best Bit: Got to be the torture scene. But I do love the Vesper creation. Worst Bit: Venice as a whole. Drops the ball, albeit not catastrophically.

Read more from Max Williams. Casino Royale is an action book about the agent James Bond. The plot of the book is very interesting and it makes you become hooked on it. The book starts in an office. The agent James Bond gets a mission from one man of the British secret organization. His mission is to stop a powerful Russian man who wants to win a casino game called baccarat.
Weeks later Bond is in the casino. There he meets two people, Mathis and Vesper who at first help him to win the Russian men. After few games James manages to win Le Chiffre. Later the Russian man kidnaps James. James is in love with Vesper, but Vesper betrays him…Why?

Their money is being held in a Swiss bank in escrow for the duration of the game and each one has a password to keep the money secured. At the conclusion of the tournament, the winner will enter his password into and encryption keypad, which will automatically wire the money to any bank account in the world of the winner's choice. Vesper has the account number but only Bond knows the password.
On the first hand, Bond deliberately makes a misjudged call to figure out how Le Chiffre bluffs his physical "tell" involves him placing his left hand on his forehead near his wounded left eye , however Vesper is not at all impressed, thinking Bond is inept. After a lengthy round of hands, a break is called.
Bond places a tracking device in Le Chiffre's asthma inhaler and takes Vesper back to their room. Le Chiffre is called back to his room by his girlfriend, Valenka. However, he is confronted by Obanno and his henchman, demanding his money back. They threaten to cut off Valenka's arm, however, Le Chiffre doesn't acquiesce. Out in the hallway, Bond hears Valenka screaming.
He quickly grabs Vesper and they kiss in the stairway entrance to cover themselves, however, Obanno's henchman notices Bond's earpiece and attacks them both. The fight takes them into the stairwell, where the henchman is thrown off the stairwell to his death, and James and Obanno have a knock-down drag-out fight all the way down the stairwell, Obanno wielding a machete.
Finally landing on the bottom, Bond gets Obanno into a choke hold. Obanno tries to reach for Bond's pistol, but Vesper smashes it out of his hands. Bond finally kills Obanno and orders Vesper to contact Mathis, who sets up one of Le Chiffre's associates to take the fall for the dead bodies by placing them in the man's car trunk.
Bond finishes the poker session, but he returns to the room to find Vesper fully-clothed and shaking uncontrollably in the shower from the fight. He holds on to her and comforts her. The next day, during the continuing poker game, Bond loses all his money to Le Chiffre after misreading a bluff and admits to Vesper that he made a mistake.
Vesper won't give him the buy back money saying he's going to lose it. Leiter tells that he's doing poorly himself in the game and that he'll back Bond to re-enter the game; Leiter believes that Bond can beat Le Chiffre. Bond slowly builds his bank again and once again becomes a threat to Le Chiffre.
Le Chiffre has Valenka poison Bond's martini with digitalis, causing Bond to suffer severe tachycardia. Bond goes to his car distressed and, communicating with medical specialists at MI6 headquarters, is about to use the defibrillator when he sees the the connection isn't plugged in and passes out. Vesper arrives, fixes the defibrillator kit and shocks him back to life.
Shaken but able to walk, Bond returns to the game. One player has a flush, while another has a full house. Le Chiffre has a higher full house and is about to take the entire pot when Bond reveals he has a straight flush and wins the game. Vesper leaves the dining room; seconds later, Bond realizes she's in danger.
Vesper is kidnapped by Le Chiffre. Bond races after them in his Aston Martin, but has to swerve violently when he sees Vesper lying bound in the road. The car rolls several times, destroying it. Le Chiffre and his cronies take him, removing his homing implant. As Bond fades from consciousness, Le Chiffre tells him that Mathis was allied with his enemy.
Bond and Vesper are taken to a nearby tramp steamer and separated. Bond is stripped and bound to a chair with the seat removed, leaving his testicles exposed. Le Chiffre uses a large knotted rope, striking Bond's scrotum, demanding the password for the account the winnings have been secured in. Bond refuses, despite Le Chiffre's threats to kill him and Vesper. Through the pain inflicted on him, Bond tells Le Chiffre that his investors, who are already hunting him, will find him and kill him.
Le Chiffre counters, saying that even if he murders Bond and Vesper, that MI:6 will still welcome him because of the knowledge he possesses about his terrorist clients. Le Chiffre finally draws a knife and is about to castrate Bond when gunshots are heard outside implied to be the sound of Valenka being killed.
The door opens and in walks Mr. White, the broker who introduced Obanno to Le Chiffre, pointing a silenced pistol directly at Le Chiffre. Le Chiffre, suddenly frightened, pleads with him, saying he'll secure the money, to which White replies, "Money isn't as important to our organization as knowing who to trust.
Bond wakes up in a hospital bed during a haze while he recovers. After he fully regains consciousness, he talks to Mathis, whom he believes was responsible for his and Vesper's capture by Le Chiffre. MI6 agents appear, taze Mathis and drag him away. Vesper visits Bond and they confess their love for each other.
The Swiss banker in charge of the winnings account visits and Bond gives Vesper the password to key in; the password is her own first name. Bond resigns from the service to go on holiday with Vesper, and they sail to Venice, Italy where Vesper says she'll get the money and Bond will get the supplies for the trip.
When M phones about his resignation, she says that they'll discuss that later but they need to talk about the money being returned to the British government first, which tips off that Vesper was using him all along. Bond follows Vesper to a secret meeting where she turns the money over, in cash, to a man named Gettler, who spots Bond nearby.
Gettler and a few of his men retreat to a building being renovated and a gunfight ensues. Bond shoots and ruptures the flotation bags that hold the building above water-level and kills the men. He tries to save Vesper, locked in an old elevator, but is unable to after she commits suicide by drowning herself. Bond recovers her body and takes her above water but is unable to revive her. White, who'd been watching the scene, is seen leaving with the suitcase full of money.
Sitting on the sailboat he and Vesper had been vacationing on, Bond talks to M, who informs him that Vesper had a boyfriend who was being held by Le Chiffre's organization. She had intended to pay off Le Chiffre's associates with the money to secure her boyfriend's release.
M believes that there are no further leads, that the "trail has gone cold. White, which he theorizes she left for him purposely. After he exits his car, he receives a phone call from someone telling him they "need to talk.
He falls to the ground and crawls painfully toward the house. As he tries to climb the stairs and the familiar Bond theme music begins to play, Bond appears carrying a cell phone and a silenced HK rifle. As White looks up defiantly, Bond says "The name's Bond.
