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.

Third James Bond movie to film in Japan. Hashima Island was for shooting villain Raoul Silva's island lair. The first Bond Bond film to lens in Japan where the largest amount of filming was done was for You Only Live Twice (1967). The second was for The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) where filming was done there to get shots of exotic fish in Okinawa. See more »
When Silva is about to slide down the escalator, Bond runs past the same blonde woman twice between shots. See more »

Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
Where is it? Is it there?
Hard drives gone.

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 »
I thought this Bond movie was going to be one of the best i've ever seen. Craig as ever, fits the role really well. Plenty of action and suspense from the very start with a good plot. BUT....after about an hour things start to go downhill. The end scene was one of the more disappointing that i've seen in a Bond film. M gets far too involved in this movie. Dench acts as Craig's side kick, getting into almost as much of the action as Bond himself does. Way over the top. Lets be realistic....would a high ranking middle class female civil servant based in Westminster really go around shooting guns at arch villains? M needs to get back into his/her office where they belong! Where was the beautiful Bond girl that Bond needed to protect in the final scene? The final scene has plenty of action but the scenario was corny! Worth a watch but you may at the end be a little disappointed!
