The first reviews of the new James Bond flick “Casino Royale” have started popping up in the British press, the film’s harshest critics so far.The good news is most are unabashedly praising the film and Craig’s performance in particular as the best since Connery, and the best Bond film in general since 1995’s acclaimed “Goldeneye”.The Times, The Mirror, The Sun, and The Telegraph and The Daily Mail all posted gushing reviews of the film.The sole voice of dissension at present is The Guardian who posted a mixed take due to not liking the more realistic and darker take on the series, citing it doesn’t explore “real current fears”, and not a fan of the score.
