    Bond finished it off in style, with a shaken martini at the end of the night. This image of James Bond sticks in our minds throughout many of the Bond movies, yet, Casino Royale is a bit different.

Theorist, Margery Hourihan’s stereotypical image of a hero is white, male, unimaginably fit, display very little emotion and, of course, fights for justice each and every day for the sake of society.
