Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Poor 007 is now lost in a hall of distorting mirrors."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"The few good aspects of this farce are vastly outweighed by the bad."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Proponents of this dreadfully indulgent cabaret, which thumbs its nose at coherence, have called its nigh-impenetrable plot the sincerest form of satire. That's like citing the indecipherable nature of Zapf Dingbats as a foremost send-up of language."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Despite being not officially a Bond film this is good solid, entertaining action."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"A mess. Casino Royale is two hours and eleven minutes of non sequitur."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Peter Sellers has some amusing gags as the gambler, the chance of dressing up in various guises and a neat near-seduction scene with Ursula Andress."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Even less amusing than the more 'serious' Bond films."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"A magnificent mess, it's either the greatest argument against LSD or the worst."
‑ Paul M. Bradshaw, Total Film
"Chaotic and astonishingly unfunny."
‑ , Film4
"Now Craig assumes the mantle, and you know, he does OK."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Out of five directors -- only McGrath manages to connect with this brontosaurian James Bond parody."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"It's the sort of reckless, disconnected nonsense that could be telescoped or stopped at any point."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Silly 007 spoof tamer than Austin Powers."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Surrealisticly bad"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"No less than five directors, including John Huston, and eight writers, including Billy Wilder and Ben Hecht, tried to salvage this lengthy, laden all-star Bond spoof--to no avail."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
