I've read all of Ian Fleming's Bond books, watched all the Bond movies and I think I have a grasp of what James Bond actually signifies. He's a connoisseur, refined, elegant and probing on the outside. On the inside he's self-absorbed, violent, patient, and loves living on the edge. Casino Royale has captured his interior well, but has left his exterior out in the dust. I don't recognize the man. They've taken an eastside London chap and put him in a tux. They've sold the movie and packaged it to fit the times. Nothing wrong with that, but it has nothing to do with the kind of man James Bond was. Bond thrived on living by his wits more so than his athletic prowess. He was a perfectionist, a dilettante and a loner. He adored women and was extremely patriotic. And most important, he had a sense of humour. Daniel Craig, who is this guy?
