Casino Royale was the Daniel Craig's debut as James Bond. This 23 minute documentary provides behinds the scenes commentary and shows how some of the action scenes were made. Having seen the movie I found this an interesting view and I enjoyed it.
I don't recommend seeing this behinds-the-scene short until after you see the movie.
Because I liked it more than I expected I'm giving "Death in Venice" 5 stars.
Five INVENTIVE Stars. The James Bond, Agent 007, spy movie "Casino Royale" has lots of action, casino gambling thrills, and spy drama, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond and Eva Green as the Bond girl, Vesper Lynd. This mini-documentary video, "Death in Venice - Casino Royale-The Sinking Palazzo" shows how they shot one of the great scenes in Bond movie filmdom: the shootout and fight scenes supposedly inside, outside, and underwater at a Venice Italy palazzo (palace) that was collapsing around them and the scenes where Eva Green met her fate. The film clearly shows Craig and Green resolutely did their own harrowing stunts, with some stunt and double support, including the amazing climatic scene by Green that some might have thought was a manikin. It was her in the flesh in that murky water. In addition, sailing the Venice Grand Canal and the harrowing chase through the crowded St. Marks Square with actual tourists everywhere is also covered. The way they did the palace collapse is astounding. Great music, scenery, and commentary by Craig, Green, production staff, and the CGI, construction, and pneumatic crews. The actual movie clips were directed by Martin Campbell. The mini-documentary was produced & directed by Rob Done for Special Treats Productions. Highly Recommended. Five IMPRESSIVE Stars.
