Good and innovative gadgets, some corny one liners, a very good opening sequence (loved the one in Casino Royale) an intelligent Bond Girl, maybe a bit of a twist at the end, the obligatory Aston Martin and fantastic special effects although both DH and I agreed that Casino Royale was better for not having so many special effects. Sounds interesting coursework

Good story, involving characters. Would like it to be well edited. I loved the way Casino Royale was a slight departure from other Bond films, opening it up to a new audience.

I don't suppose it would be the done thing for your DS to write 'Daniel Craig with his kit OFF this time', would it?

What Sophiewd said, plus:
Exotic locations
A villain intent on world domination with an noticeable physical quirk
Fights, stunts, chases

Btw, taught this as GCSE coursework a couple of years ago. There is a good website from which to get lots of information:

There will be noticeably more product placement than in the earlier Bond films

There will be a catchy soundtrack with the traditional opening credits with silhouette girls prancing around

There will be some allusion to some troubled area of the world without it becoming political - it's tricky now the Russians are more open. Whom to paint as the arch enemy of the west and democracy?

True re product placement. Ford paid millions to feature their new Mondeo in Casino Royale.

thank you all so much (and heated will get him to have a look a that link)
he will be attacking it again tomorow so will get him to have a read of the thread.

he did also need to know what your expectations are of the actor who plays bond?

(can you tell we don't do bond?)
