As a die-hard film fan of 007, something regarding the director may could help you know more about related films. Martin Campbell is the hero who launched two actors – Pierce Brosnan in Goldeneye and Daniel Craig in Casino Royale and won a big box office.
Prior to moving to England in 1966, Campbell was born in New Zealand and enjoyed his childhood in his hometown. Then, he stepped onto the vehicle to England and started his career as a cinematographer. Fortunately, the guy seized an opportunity and accomplished his directorial debut with The Sex Thief in 1973. Four years later, he became a producer on Black Joe and an associate producer in Scum. Though its study of the British borstal system to young offenders are controversial for most of people.
In the late 70s, Campbell entered into television industry and direct some popular UK shows, like Shoestring, The Professionals and Minder. But what cemented his status are two miniseries – Reilly and Edge of Darkness. Two leading roles in such two series also add strong strokes to his whole directorial career.
Because of his work on Edge of Darkness, Campbell was noticed by Bond Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Subsequently, he seized the critical opportunity to direct the magnificent commercial film Goldeneye. It was proved that the commercial film was a big success for reintroduction of the character six years later.

When it comes to the Casino Royale, I was addicted to the starred actress – a new Bond Girl. In the film, Daniel Craig captured many people’s hearts for his cool and cruel determination, superb sex appeal and fatally destructive capability when combats with rivals. At present, he was paste the tag of 007, casting a superb death-defying, sportscar-driving, female-back-fondling Bond.

Starring James Bond in 007, Daniel Craig presented in lethal danger effortless, adding a serious actor to the unserious scenes. The film also reveals some immaturities, playfulness and absurdities of Bond, but these defects was covered quickly with his self-possession and intelligence. The Exchequer dispatches an accompanying official to Casino with Bond. The Bond girl who confronted with zillions of pounds from taxpayers’ features curve and embonpoint figure. Miss Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green, master a residual French accent when speaking English, which sounds like in an ironic tone.
In addition to long hair, she is not a common Bond Girl, featuring typical arrogance and inverted triangle face.

The franchise features product placements smartly, even one could perceive its existence.
