Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Connery, and 'Casino' is the best Bond flick since 'From Russia With Love'. (There have been other good ones, but not this good.) I haven't seen 'Quantum of Solace' yet, but given a couple more movies, I think Craig could give Connery a run for the best Bond in history.
The new James Bond kicks #!@%*# and takes names, to be sure. The action sequences are breath-taking in their scope and their execution. I liked the rogue undertones to Bond. Daniel Craig is the perfect Bond for the 21st Century.
