|Home: BigScreen Journal - Recounting the history of 007|
MSNBC.com is featuring an article that recounts the history of the James Bond franchise and talks about the chances of the latest installment, "Casino Royale."
Then I heard that the new movie, “Casino Royale,” the first of Ian Fleming’s novels, would detail how Bond became Bond, and for that, yes, a bit of youth would help. Then I saw “Munich,” in which Craig plays the most intense of the Mossad assassins, and thought, “You know, he could work.” Then I saw the dynamite summer trailer for “Casino Royale” and thought “Wow.” Then I saw the film.
The author goes through each of the James Bond eras by actor and his observations of how each fared. His statements are pretty spot-on, at least for the movies that I've seen (I skipped the Timothy Dalton era completely).
I do agree with his final assertion that the premise of Casino Royale is promising, but time will tell if it's a fresh change or just more dilution of the franchise.
