At one time or another, "Casino Royale" undoubtedly had a shooting schedule, a script and a plot. If any one of the three ever turns up, it might be the making of.

CASINO ROYALE is one of the truly great bad movies of all time. It is a wonderfully weird, bold, funny and incoherent mess of a movie. What should stink of.

A goofy, dated parody of spy movie clichés, Casino Royale squanders its all-star cast on a meandering, mostly Rate And Review Apr 27, wide.

casino royale (1967 review)

A group of older men, representing the secret agencies of the US, the UK, Russia and France, are on their way to the real Bond's home to ask for his assistance. The stretch with Bond visiting the faux M widow is probably the funniest. BrandtSponseller 1 June Casino Royale has some outstanding elements. The problem was that despite Eon Productions the production company behind most of the Bond films not owning the rights to Casino Royale, they had used many of the "bits" in other Bond films. At one point Niven blows up the locked door of a psychedelically decorated dudgeon with lysergic acid--better know as LSD--and in a way this is indicative of the entire film, which was made at the height of the s ultra-mod movement: the whole thing has the feel of a blow-out acid trip, right down to flashing multicolored lights and swinging 60s fashions. Many of its segments are funny; it's even occasionally hilarious. The film was intended to be the ultimate spy spoof, an attempt to out-Bond the James Bond movies and their innumerable imitators. The production design is worth a There are beautiful, often provocatively dressed or relatively undressed women everywhere you look. Casino Royale has it that the Bond we know from other films is a decoy. Or in Fritz Perl's "here and now", to switch hoaxes in midstream. It is obvious that no one gave the slightest thought to creating a genuine spy film and instead approached the film with a devil-may-care attitude. Was this review helpful? It's an opportunity to live in the unfolding moment. It's certainly no match for a legitimate Bond film, despite the similarity of location-hopping, outrageous villains, spy gadgets and so on. And you have one of the best soundtrack albums ever, including Herb Alpert's title track and Dusty Springfield's sexy, sultry rendition of the Bacharach and David classic "The Look of Love. It seems that someone has been trying to wipe out as many secret agents as they can. However, Bond films aren't quite convoluted or messy enough to deserve this kind of spoofing, so excusing the messiness of the whole to parodic intent seems an over-ambitious stretch. Yet, the film has no malice; it is as bright and breezy as a screwball comedy with just a touch of British absurdity. We do travel to many exotic locales, meet many exotic people, doing exotic things, and we receive many plot intricacies and twists in both the typical Bond story and in Casino Royale. Some of the gags miss the mark. In order to confuse the unknown enemy, Sir James orders ALL secret agents to use the name James Bond--and before you can blink there are Bonds aplenty running wild all over the globe. The result is one of the most bizarre films imaginable. The problem arose in putting all of it together. And with at least five directors and at least ten writers, it's not difficult to see why. The production design is incredible throughout the film. It is visually arresting, to say the least. And the segments with the trippiest visuals, both in the climax, are a fantastic treat for any fan of surrealism. Orson Welles, with his fat cigar at the card table, performing magic tricks with flags and scarves amid flashing lights while everyone whistles and applauds. While they're pitching the idea of coming out of retirement to Bond, they're attacked. It's a succession of gags, puns, and visual effects taking place in spectacularly designed settings, spoofs of German expressionism, psychedelic imagery, and all that. A British soldier who has been practicing karate chops on wooden boards comes to a stiff attention when his superior approaches and snaps a quivering Brit-style salute, knocking himself out with his own hand. It is amazing that a film that is so overblown, over produced and over budgeted can still be so light and airy. Too bad the movie loses steam at the end so that what should be a climactic pulling together of all the accumulated lines of narrative and jokes is, instead, just plain silly -- clapping seals, parachuting Indians. If we felt like being overly generous, we might be able to argue that the overarching mess of a plot was part of the point. Just don't expect anything like a tight story. Gary F.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} And if that's not enough evidence for you, consider that the segments were further chopped up into set-pieces. But it's one of my favorite guilty pleasures, and I recommend it for fans of the unexpectedly odd. Bond's house is blown up, and he implicitly agrees to the assignment. Casino Royale Hide Spoilers. The real Bond David Niven went into retirement when his skills were at their peak. What's not to love? Part of carrying that out involves changing the identity of nearly every spy to James Bond--if the real Bond is to work unimpeded, he can't always be worrying about being killed by the criminal mastermind. As a satire of Bond films, CASINO is adequate; as a satire of the then trendy-swinging-cool-hip-with-it-now youth films of the era, it succeeds beautifully. And that's just for starters. Unfortunately, Sellers' ego reached critical mass during the production and he was fired mid-way into filming--and suddenly roles that were originally envisioned as cameos had to be expanded to finish the project. There is little in the way of overarching plot. In addition, it was felt that a serious alternative Bond film couldn't compete against the Albert R. Eon Production's DR. Despite a chaotic recipe, the film has a lot of really great ingredients. Ha ha. It is a wonderfully weird, bold, funny and incoherent mess of a movie. This went so far as having their own portions of the script written. To this end, the untold number of writers and directors involved have opted to take the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to storytelling, mixed with a cut-and-paste style of editing. Writers who have trouble ending absurd movies like this seem to think that a few minutes of chaotic slapstick will serve. And then there is that famous Burt Bacharach score, easily one of the best of the decade, sporting Herp Albert on the main theme and Dusty Springfield's legendary performance of "The Look of Love. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Sign In. All of this stuff is good, but does it work as a unified film? But, in isolation, the segments tend to be good to excellent. So there wasn't much of the book left to adapt. The madcap ending of the film is a lot of fun for its embrace of absurdism as a supreme aesthetic disposition--and it may have even influenced some later films. Most threads are just completely abandoned after awhile. Each set piece ends up being largely independent--you could almost see this as a series of skits on a similar theme. Eventually all the Bonds, including through the magic of editing Peter Sellers, wind up at Casino Royale, where they confront the evil agents of SMERSH and a diabolical mad man with a plot to rule the world. The whole is a mess. When the property wound up at Columbia Pictures, they decided to create the satire to end all satires with a host of writers, five famous directors, and an all-star cast led by Peter Sellers. Not just for the surrealism, but the lush Edwardian and Victorian interiors, complete with copies and works in similar styles to unique, influential artists such as Gustav Klimt and Otto Dix. There is no "plot" worthy of the name. The five disparate directors saw to that, to the extent that the writers didn't. This Bond is quite different than the Bond we know--he is almost chaste, he's a homebody, he dedicates each evening's twilight to playing Debussy on the piano, and so on. And, to some extend, the film gets Bond right. Casino Royale is the story of the real Bond trying to get to the bottom of the sinister agent-wipeout plan. Woody does his neurotic New York Jew character, Peter Sellers rides the gray area between bumbling buffoon and suave playboy, with a couple generic Indian and Chinese impersonations thrown in for good measure, Orson Welles does his best Paul Masson Wine-pitching "elder statesman" demeanor, and also throws in a few of his more famous magic tricks. An Unfolding Moment rmax 25 February It helps if you're able to live in Kierkegaard's unfolding moment if you want to enjoy this movie. They all do a bit of their own schtick--in some cases, they demanded this. I've found that viewers tend to have extremely different reactions to this film--they either love it or hate it, so you may want to rent this one first. It's pointless to compare "Casino Royale" to any of the other "straight" Bond films. Peter Sellers trying on different costumes for Ursula Andress, including one of a gruff old general, "There's nothing wrong with the British Ahmy -- that a damned good swim won't cure. They're good enough to watch the film just to see them. Listen to the score and watch the performers squeeze the most possible laughs out of their situations. Ridiculous, but not funny. Such silliness abounds and at times the movie drags a bit, but there is always another joke around the corner. Each director worked on a different segment in relative isolation from the rest. Basically you have a whole bunch of big name stars -- past their prime, but still with box office credibility -- ridiculing the very youth market that was squeezing them off the theatre marquees. These facts make Casino Royale not quite work. I saw this movie when it was released and laughed from beginning to end. It also presages the Sir Robin section of Monty Python and the Holy Grail , but bests it in a way, if only because of its extension. The story, which is very loosely based on Ian Fleming's James Bond novel Casino Royale published in it's the first Bond novel , is a spoof of the typical adventure featuring the infamous secret agent. The plot is absolute chaos, but that doesn't prevent the film from being a lot of fun to watch. What should stink of embarrassing desperation, instead proves to cheerfully insane, unpredictable and remarkably free of common sense. This is a spoof of Bond, after all, and Bond novels and films tend to have sprawling plots--both geographically and narratively. The entire cast runs wild with some marvelous over-the-top performances, and whenever the writers can jam in a gag or a weird plot turn they do precisely that: Bond Niven is attacked by decoy ducks; counter-agent Mimi Deborah Kerr swings from a drain pipe; Bond's daughter by Mata Hari Joanna Pettet is kidnapped by a UFO; double agent Vesper Ursula Andress hides bodies in the deep freeze. Sign in to vote. Those are all great actors, and great comedians in at least two cases. The story, such as it is, finds James Bond David Niven called out of retirement to deal with the sudden disappearance of secret agents all over the world.
