Patrick J Sullivan English 112 Dan Chelotti 4/26/07 I say James Bond, and then you say “Roger Moore,” or “Pierce Brosnan.” This is not the case.

Then at the end when you think the bad guys have been defeated, think again, you still have another forty-five minutes of James Bond loving. Is this a new trend? We’ve never seen James in love. That does not happen. If you want to see a movie with a James Bond feel then this is for you but for the true James Bond fan, I wouldn’t recommend Casino Royale as a movie for you....
