Casino Royale

Casino Royale ★★★★½

"I'm sorry. That last hand... nearly killed me."

I told myself I was just going to pop in my Casino Royale DVD and only watch the opening parkour chase scene that took about maybe 10 minutes tops to complete. Come to find out, that did not work as planned. I watched an hour and fifty-five minutes of the movie and didn't even realize it. I was zoned in. I patently couldn't take my eyes off the screen when it reached the Poker scenes (which took about 30-34 mins). That whole scenario had me on edge (the exact same way when I saw it in theaters).
It felt great seeing Bond flush Le Chiffre's ass off the table. He got up looking like a big container of McCormick Sea Salt after that ass kickin'; a well deserved beat-down.

Damn, this movie is so good!!
