Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
Chimera is a deadly virus that will bare a deathly death unless you are given the antidote. The creator of Chimera is murdered and the antidote is stolen by a disavowed IMF agent, Sean Ambrose. The Impossible Mission Force, IMF, hire the skilled and charming Ethan Hunt, and the beautiful Nyah Nirdoff-Hall, who has had her share with Ambrose. Their mission, should they choose to accept it is to send Hirdoff-Hall undercover to Ambrose and learn what she can for Hunt to bring down Chimera, but they will have to break into a secure lab by jumping off buildings and dodging bullets. Its impossible.
Because of his huge back-end deals, Tom Cruise was forced to pay for the production overruns out of his own pocket. See more »
(at around 1h 40 mins) When Ethan is escaping from the island, he shoots out the tire on the white Ford, causing the hubcap to come off. However, when the driver is swerving and the car flips, you can see that the tire is fully inflated and the hubcap is in place. See more »

If you sometimes go to the movies to be entertained by unbelievably daring
stunts, this is the movie to see. From
Cruise's incredible rock climb to nail-biting motorcycle
this movie impresses with the stunts. The plot could be written on the back
of a postage stamp. However, that's rarely
what audiences go to see films like this for. The performances
are above average, particularly Dougray Scott and Thadie
A pity Newton's character is underused during the second half of the film.
Besides being beautiful, this woman can ACT!
It is also refreshing to see a demonstrably romantic and affectionate
interracial relationship portrayed on screen in such a positive manner.
Newton's race never comes up in the film. Credit producer Tom Cruise for
This is one of those movies I'd rent to give my home theatre system a
workout. This movie succeeds on its own level; however, I can understand
how others could be disappointed.
I gave this one a "7" on the IMDB scale.
By the way, it was a clever touch to have Cruise receive his mission
briefing via wrap-around sunglasses. Kind of nice to
be reminded of RISKY BUSINESS.
