I could point out several things in Bond movies that wouldn't happen in real life, but that's part of their charm.  One of my favorites is in Thunderball where he takes the jet pack off and casually throws it into the trunk of his Aston Marin.  His hands would have been burnt to a crisp touching that metal tubing which would have been scalding hot.  Also, the trunk of the car would have been toast.

Lol! But did you not just add that as your main gripe of the Casino Royale movie? The card playing clip in general. It would never happen. Like I said in my Nintendo news thread, James bond just has a golden horseshoe up is Arse! It happened because he is Bond. If he was Jason bourne then he would have had to kill the whole room, but he is not. What do you say?

I suppose that you are right.  Maybe it's because that I used to play poker a lot that it got to me.  You see, sometimes I get angry when people play cards badly and that scene showed off an awful lot of bad card playing. 

Jason Bourne would have lost the card match, shot LeChiffre, hit his head on the card table and lost his memory.  Next he would have been chased by his superiors for three movies due to his failure and because the writers wouldn't have been able to come up with anything else.  There would be some great action sequences and a lot of camera shaking though.

Then just like in the ending of Rambo 4 he will finally come home to his family!
Didn't the director of a Bourne movie do the new Casino Royal? Or maybe it was just the style that was sort of copied.
Bourne. Will return next week in ....We bought a Zoo? Lol, poor Damon!

Nah.  The new Casino Royale was directed by Martin Campbell, the guy who also directed GoldenEye.  I don't think that the style of Bourne was copied in that movie, but it was somewhat in Quantum of Solace (not the same director though).  Quantum of Solace was pretty good except for the shaky camera crap that's all the rage these days.

Good review, still haven't had chance to watch it though, Netflix didn't have it.

I have seen the start though, and the James Bond introduction when he is at the casino table is the best one out of all the movies in my opinion.

Just one request...add screens from the movie to your reviews. :)

So now that you have watched this and Casino Royale 1957, which Card game to you find to be more realistic?

The card scene from Casino Royale 1954 was more realistic.  In baccarat your chances are nearly 50/50.  Going on a run like that is possible, but highly unlikely.  Even Bond himself admits that something like that can't last forever.  It goes back to your post about him having a horseshoe up his arse.

I think even Bond is wrong occasionally. He was lucky in the 50's and he is lucky now. Lucky his balls did not explode in Casino royale with Craig, Lucky he was able to get away from that Tsunami in Die another Day (and survive the plane falling apart, and get away from the space diamond lazer, and..), I would say the movie that he had the most luck in was From Russia with Love! The whole movie, like the blond Haired assassin said, he was being saved by him. Funny that Bonds guardian Angel is also his stalking trained assassin enemy!

Yeah, Bond would have been done for if it wasn't for Red Grant in From Russia With Love.  He especially helped him out in that gypsie camp.  Most of him luck tends to come from overconfidencer on the villain's part though.  Stuff like - Let's leave him out on an island to be eaten by alligators and leave.  They need to just shoot him, immediately.
