Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
When Bond's latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows - aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) - following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

This movie is not a follow-on from the two previous films Quantum of Solace (2008) and Casino Royale (2006). Producer Barbara Broccoli said that the series "will go on to other different stories from now on." However, the reappearance of the QUANTUM organization in later films is still a possibility. Broccoli has said: "I think in some way, he will go after the [Quantum] organization. So in that sense, it may become a trilogy, but we haven't really structured it that way." See more »
When Bond climbs up from under lift/elevator after hanging under the assassin's lift car he opens adjacent lift/elevator landing doors just by pulling them apart. This is not possible without first disengaging the door lock mechanism, which is operated when car is at that level. If this were possible anyone could push lift/elevator doors open from any level and fall down the shaft. See more »

Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
Where is it? Is it there?
Hard drives gone.
It's gone. Give me a minute.
They must have it! Get after them!
I'm stabilizing Ronson.
We don't have the time!
I have to stop the bleeding!

Bond's traditional shot towards the camera, seen through the barrel of a gun, is placed at the end of this film rather than the beginning. After the blood stops dripping, the James Bond 50th Anniversary logo appears with the words "James Bond will return," below it. See more »
Please someone tell the producers to quit the doom and gloom and get entertaining again
I don't want to watch a James Bond movie and get depressed, does anybody? He is old, and frail, M dies, what is this? A flop. The idea of James Bond worked for years and years simply because you could, not always but at times, count on great entertainment, great action, on a stunning charming sexy elegant perfect man that never fails, that knows everything, that can get any woman on the planet, that makes you smile with his cheesy/ cheeky sense of humor, that what women want to see and guys want beautiful women and amazing gadgets. Fun, fun fun. James Bond should be entertainment not drama. Can please someone tell the producers to quit the doom and gloom and go back to the unreal fabulous world James Bond is leaving into and embrace it once and for all, the more unreal the better. Please, do the audiences across the world a favor, get rid of Daniel Craig and get a real gorgeous man, beautiful to look at, tall and sexy as Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnam were, no raggedy, bulky, wrinkly man, James Bond is not a mine worker or a builder and get a sophisticated, G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S, beautiful to look at, a traffic stopper, with a cheeky look, someone you really can believe he can have every woman on earth. Do you need examples? Gerad Buttler, Ewan McGregor, Henry Cavill, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, just few names of possible but certainly believable drop dead gorgeous James Bond. Please don't try ever again to make James Bond " more real, more human". You cannot make him real, he is not supposed to be real!!! He should be everything we cannot possibly be, that is the fun about it, he is a dream taken to the extreme, a rich, extravagant, excessive fantasy, a dream man that is so over the top perfect, that becomes non-threatening for men and a total unadulterated fantasy for women. That's entertainment. That's James Bond. If I want drama I'll go and seek it somewhere else, somewhere it doesn't taste uncomfortably wrong.
