Casino Royale was first submitted to the BBFC in September 2006 for an advice viewing. The BBFC's Director and Senior Examiners determined that Casino Royale was largely containable at the distributor's requested 12A, with the exception of a torture sequence. Derived from Fleming's novel, this narratively significant scene sees Bond stripped.
Casino Royale is directed by Martin Campbell and is the first Bond film starring Daniel Craig as the infamous agent. A new 00 agent for MI6, Bond is assigned with incapacitating a terrorist (Mads.
From the amazing opening foot scene that is beyond describing to a torture scene in which Bond’s manhood is at stake to the more low key scenes around the poker table, this movie does not disappoint.

The language is pretty mild.
Casino Royale, on the other hand, is as gripping now as it ever was in the Cold War. Fleming captured the feel of those dark days with vivid description and a break-neck pace. It's dark and not what a Bond-film enthusiast would expect, but worth reading. The torture scene is a classic.
Casino Royale introduced the world to James Bond in a stylish and intelligent manner. Fleming's novel, stream-lined and matter-of-fact, paints a clear picture of James Bond and his world as a spy.
