Okt. Tests, for Casino Royale (Torture SFX, Part 1: Persuasion by Pain) Songtext von Tristram Cary mit Lyrics, deutscher Übersetzung. Nov 17, Daniel Craig and Eva Green in Casino Royale The suspenseful poker scenes and his brutal beating of Bond took the “dance” to a a few minutes later. 5. Apr. Eye-popping action sequences, a worthy villain, and a hilarious torture scene. Casino Royale has a new bond played by Daniel Craig and is.
Coupled with his falling in love and desire to retain his soul, I definitely understood why he would have quit the service without regret.
Yes, it was a good dynamic that Fleming set up. He set the bar highly for the rest of his villains, no doubt. There was a significant amount of tension after that line that said to me that Bond just got himself in deeper trouble and was in for worse pain.
He had no reason to expect to live. But this was a film for mass audiences as well as hardcore fans as you well know , and us Fleming purists are a pretty small minority in comparison.
He just refuses to submit, and is cocky enough to pull that line. He was dead sure that Le Chiffre would be dead before him. And Le Chiffre shattered that little thread of hope by explaining that even if he killed Bond, MI6 would still give him sanctuary.
Again, yes, it was less brutal than the book. Unfortunately, the same could be said for every single trial and tribulation that Bond has faced in the films vs.
I hate it, too, but I was pleasantly surprised by the extent to which they drove him in at least this movie. Yeah, the comedic line was way off from the original scene, but as I said, Bond thought he had Le Chiffre over a barrel Much moreso than in the book.
So, for me, it fit with what had been set up in the film. Every last Bond movie could have stood to adapt the novels more closely, and would have been more interesting for it.
Was it as good as the book? Not quite, ONLY in terms of the downtrodden tone and unabashed brutality. In nearly every other aspect, yes, at least as much.
Was it a good film? And EON was committed to that rating. Would it have been a better film if the scene had been left out entirely? Or the book not adapted at all?
On Assignment in the Caribbean. Bond humorously taunts Le Chiffre in the novel as well, good comparision and back ground leg work! A doctor told me I was going to die once and I laughed until I cried I was the queen of shakey bad jokes for like 2 hours too..
All of you have brought up excellent points. I consider myself a Fleming purist and I agree with many of you that this is the closest of the films to the way Fleming wrote.
The CR reboot gives an opportunity to return to Flemings roots with a clean slate, although it is hard to wipe the paradigm created by Sean Connery.
The nanny in London line would have made a great line in the film and a reason to have Judi Dench be in the film as M. Le Chiffre should not have been played as being desperate.
He is a card player and a gambler and desperation does not fit in with the character. The biggest change between the book and film is the portrayal of Mathis.
When I saw Mathis in the film I thought, wow, a major character from the books is finally getting his due. Instead, they create a nebulous character and leave him with a cloud of suspicion.
A young Bond at the beginning of his career. That would have been something to see. The Ohio State University. I was about to say this.
I read that instituting humor in a situation like this is a method in trying to counteract the pain and such. Edited by JackWade, 11 May - My general experience is that the joke tends to get a good deal of audience laughter.
It would be useful to see rougher cuts of the torture scene to see what it had originally been like before the ratings board was appeased.
But I think that just by eliminating the humor, and showing Bond blacking out once or twice, with a very quickly glimpsed i. Balls and babies are issues wherein neither of the sexes can truly say "I feel your pain.
It says that Bond can still go behind the backs of and outfox his superiors by putting them off-balance.
I expect the dialogue to change. I just have a natural objection to it changing for the worse. Maybe I just have more faith in this mater, but I think a skilled filmmaker could imply that within a PG rating.
So in other words, it is about clairvoyance. I reward infedility to Fleming if it improves on the source. Why should LeChiffre feel vulnerable if it decreases the power and intimidation so vital to the character and cuts him down to size?
This may come as a shock to you, but I do not spend my days and nights shaking my fist at what I had already expected to be a compromised adaptation of CR.
Once again, this is a false dilemma. The issue is not making the torture scene more "graphic," which would presumably entail showing nudity and gallons of blood and ropes pounding into flesh in plain sight.

So you could kill a nobody. We wanted to question him, not to kill him! I thought one less bomb maker in the world would be a good thing.
