Action-packed, but ultimately shallow.

I haven't seen Casino Royale yet, so I didn’t have the big expectations that many people did going into this movie. I wasn’t blown away, but what I saw was a decent action movie. Daniel Craig was excellent as James Bond, although he is really the only actor whose performance is worth noting. Most of the other characters are inconsequential, and the main fault of the movie is that it fails to convey a real sense of conflict, which is mainly due to the lack of a memorable villain. It could have used a more fleshed out plot and characters with more depth, but it did just enough to keep me entertained throughout its runtime.
