Top Movies of the Decade #45

45. Casino Royale

casinoroyale With “Casino Royale,”  Daniel Craig (and director Martin Campbell) breathed life into a Bond franchise that desperately needed it, after the stale and tasteless Brosnan years.   Here was an exciting Bond, a savage Bond, while, as always, a smart and sexy Bond.   The opening chase sequence is one of the most exciting action sequences of the decade, and it sets the pace for a movie that never slows down, never gets silly, and– surprise — actually gives Bond a heart that can be broken.   “Casino Royale” is the best Bond film in decades, and was one of the very best action films of the decade.
