Is Daniel Craig's 007 on target, or a misfire? The first reviews from H.M.S.S., or at least the London papers, are in, and thus far Casino Royale, in theaters Nov. 17, is being declared a winner. The Daily Telegraph hails Craig's debut as the licensed-to-kill secret agent "terrific," adding that the actor "steps with full assuredness into Sean Connery's old, handmade shoes," while the Times says Craig's "main asset quickly becomes evident: He can act." Hey, don't be talking smack about Lazenby.
