Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
I was under the impression that IMDb "reviews" were supposed to be reviews. Was I wrong? That other one wasn't a review of the short any more than this is. Then it repeats several of the stories that we're told in Becoming Bond. How is that a review? It's simply an extremely short version of Becoming Bond. I think there should be a spoiler alert. If one wishes to hear the anecdotes about Daniel Craig in a life vest or Judi Densch not being mechanically inclined, why not simply watch the short itself? And then the "reviewer" contrasts the different actors who played James Bond over the years, mentioning a bunch of information we were not even given in Becoming Bond. Thanks for the interesting info but how on earth was that a review of Becoming Bond? Becoming Bond was actually a short about Casino Royale getting made, the search for Daniel Craig, and then Craig taking over the franchise. 'Not a particularly inspired documentary but there's nothing wrong with it. It's fun to watch for half an hour.
