"I watched this fillm on DVD just before going to see the newest one (Quantum of Solace), and thought that in fact it (Casino Royale) was much better. I think it's got a gripping storyline with lots of good lines and the characters are really well crafted. Particularly liked the banter on the train between James and Vesper, when they attempt to 'figure each other out'. But I was disappointed to find that although at first Vesper was portrayed as being a very independant woman who was immune to Bond's charms and thought him an arrogant chauvanist (my sentiments exactly!), she ended up falling for him anyway! Why did that have to happen?"
