Storyline

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6 led by M. Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.

The movie's official site reported: "SPECTRE Director Sam Mendes received the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing presented by The GREAT Britain Campaign at the 2015 British Academy Britannia Awards. The honour pays tribute to the legacy of the brilliant British director. Mendes has effortlessly moved between theatre and cinema, earning an Academy Award® for his first film, American Beauty (1999), and recently taking the Bond franchise to new heights with SKYFALL and SPECTRE. Recipients of this honour are deeply respected, distinctive and innovative directors, whose contributions as both technicians and artists represents the zenith of the directing profession."

Goofs

In the train, Bond and Madeleine order dirty martinis (a break from his normal routine), but when the drinks arrive, they are perfectly clear. Dirty martinis contain olive juice, so they would be cloudy. The International Bartenders Association standard recipe requires Olive Juice/brine. The traditional number of olives is that it should be odd, with 5 seen as excessive and 3 the norm. See more »

A truly unexciting 'action' movie
22 November 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the worst Bond movie ever, filled with emotionless characters that I couldn't care less about. The pace of this film after a predictably exciting start is slow and boring. Unlike his fellow actors, Ben Whishaw as Q manages to portray the only believable human in this whole fake production. Why couldn't JB have been given a touch of Q's wit, humour or vulnerability? No wonder Daniel Craig wants out of this franchise - it's beneath his talent. Such a cacophony of totally forgettable dialogue, people and silly stunts is hard to imagine in a single movie and yet here it is. During one of the 'action' fights when James was being hammered by the evil assassin I noticed the person next to me had fallen asleep and was snoring. That person was an exceedingly eloquent critic.
