Casino Royale

Just watched this last night partly as an excuse to try out renting movies from my tivo (and because I got a $15 amazon credit). I was actually pretty impressed. It doesn't focus on spectacle as much as some of the more recent bond films do, so the writing really gets more emphasis. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about Daniel Craig... he seems to play it much more seriously than my two favorite Bonds from the past (Connery and Brosnan), although that could just be how it's written as well. Some stuff struck me as a little un-Bond-like, like one of the closing lines:
Spoiler:
"The bitch is dead"
That surprised me a bit. It seemed so out of place.
