In 2006, Bond came back. And he came back in style. Daniel Craig's brutish re-invention of Her Majesty's most secret employee silenced the naysayers, energised the fans and once again made 007 the biggest draw in the movies. Casino Royale was a triumph. Keeping one eye firmly on the original novel and the other on propelling Meister Bond into a brave new world, the Casino Royale team managed to produce one of edgiest, most action-packed outings for 007 in years. And, in the words of Empire, find "a star who finally delivers what the credits have always promised: 'Ian Fleming's James Bond'".
