Shaken and stirring: A grittier, less suave 007

“Casino Royale” could be the first art-house-style 007 movie.
For one thing, the man chasing a terrorist through the tropical undergrowth on the film’s set this week doesn’t look much like the ultra-smooth James Bond that fans have come to adore over the course of four decades. He’s bleeding, ragged — and nowhere near a tuxedo, martini or gorgeous woman.
Beyond Bond’s gritty characterization are other techniques and details associated with more low-budget productions. The opening sequence will be in black and white. And even after the movie goes to color in the first act, there’s restless camera movement that gives this Bond an almost documentary feel.
