Tough choice...two great reboots, both correcting some egregious errors made in previous interpretations. Stylish choices, clear filmic visions in both, great action sequences, and protagonists made more real and identifiable.
Wanna reboot a dying franchise? See Batman Begins (2005), Casino Royale (2006) and Star Trek (2009). I'm with Batman all the way here.
Couldn't put it any better herowrship, although I think Casino Royale just nicks it for me.
Batman Begins for me. It felt right from the first minute, while it took some time for me to get used to the "new" Bond style.
Both are outstanding started films. For me, Batman Begins takes it slightly b/c Bruce's journey had a more visceral impact for me than Bond's.
Setting aside everything else about the characters and franchises, etc. and focusing exclusively on these two movies, I have to go with "Casino Royale." It was simply more satisfying--particularly at the end.
Both equally great reboots. I went with Batman because of Chris Nolan, alone.
Batman's a whole lot more exciting.
The Bond movie was more exciting. BB is solid though.
Casino Royale was an amazing film
Casino Royale is better
Both in my top 20, Batman wins.

Oh my GOD. How do you choose between these two perfect films? These are seriously two of the greatest films I have ever seen. Daniel Craig plays an amazing Bond, but then you put him up against Neeson as Ra's Al Ghul, and Bale as Batman... That is almost unfair to ask.
Batman Begins was fine...but absolutely nothing that blew my mind. Casino Royale on the other had totally revived my interest in Bond. I'm going with 007....

I was really confused during most of Casino Royale. Well, it started off as confusion, eventually I just didn't care anymore.
two desperately needed reboots that added more layers to the characters over all casino royale was better.
"The name's Bond. James Bond." "I'M BAAATMAAAN. NICE COAT."
"I'M NOT WEARING HOCKEY PAAAADS!"
