Eh, I thought it was great.

I think a similarly high-quality sequel will help it tremendously though as this movie is meant to essentially be Bond Begins, with him still getting to grips with the job and his own personality being affected by loved ones being killed, etc. Just like Bruce doesn't start off as the Batman we know in Batman Begins and only gets there towards the end, Bond is the same in Casino Royale. You see him progressing from being an effective but brutish agent towards the more classy Bond we know -- especially right at the end.
