Casino Royale



I went to see Casino Royale Wednesday night after a hard day at work. I think that movie is a great remedy for those days. That is the best Bond movie ever. I loved the raw nature of the Bond character. He didn’t rely on the latest gadget that happened to get him out of a jam before he met his demise. He got beat up even though he came out ahead of his violent encounters. The movie reminded me of Bourne Supremacy with its dark and ruthless storyline. Which begs the question- who is the baddest between James Bond, Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer? I refer you to Agent Peck’s blog on February 1, 2006 at pickapeck.blogspot.com. He considered the same question when Bond was a gadget man, not a hardcore agent. Now it’s a serious debate. Jack Bauer is willing to sacrifice everything he has, including people close to him, in order to stop the threat. That makes him dangerous. Jason Bourne relies on instinct to use the training he didn’t know he had, which makes him dangerous. James Bond uses his training to become a “00” and seek revenge. He has no ties to family or friends that would make him hesitate, which makes him dangerous. As much as I hate to do it, I think I would have to give the edge to Bond or Bourne because they are rogue. Jack Bauer is awesome, but he is bound by the law or what the President will let him do, even though he finds ways around that most of the time. Bond is bound by the British government, but he often acts on his own with little consequence. Bourne is completely independent because the government trained him to be that way. Bottom line, all three are cool and either of them could kill Ethan Hunt in two seconds.

  1. Yeah, Ethan Hunt is a pansy. I refuse to put Bond on the same level as Bourne or Bauer right now. I will see the movie, but how can one film make up for about 20 previous films where he was not as hardcore?

  2. Also, Bond is a whoremonger. He probably has several illegitimate children for whom he doesn’t pay support. Therefore, I must conclude that he is a dead-beat dad.
