James Bond in "Casino Royale"

Saw the latest James Bond movie “Casino Royale”. It is a serious movie, very different than the David Niven movie of so many years ago. Niven’t movie was a comedy; this one is a gritty, action movie. Too gritty, though. The best Bond is an urbane, cultured fellow with style. That was part of the Bond attraction. Since Brosnan, Bond has taken a turn towards the Mike Hammer kind of character. Good character, wrong movie.
