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 picture shot in three different locations in Austria: Lake Altaussee, Obertilliach and Sölden, the latter being the home of the ICE-Q restaurant and the cable cars that feature in a tense sequence with Q. According to Special Effects Supervisor Chris Corbould, the main action sequence in Austria proved very complicated, technically: "We had planes hanging on high wires coming down the valley approaching one of our villains and his men who are in Range Rovers. Then the plane wings hit a tree before it lands. It's going down the hill using its engines to propel itself but it's on the ground. Hence, we built planes that had skidoos inside so they are actually being driven". Corbould and his fx team used eight different planes that were involved in a number of separate rigs. Two of the planes could actually fly, while another two were fitted to the wire rig. Another four planes were carcasses fitted with hidden skidoos, which the stunt team could use to drive the plane down the mountainside, ensuring total control. Corbould adds: "It is a matter of getting the right vehicle for the right terrain and incorporating it and hiding it inside the relevant vehicle. In Spectre (2015), our sequence sees the plane smash into a barn and it explodes out the other end, dropping from twenty feet". When shooting this sequence, the Spectre (2015) team added ten sheds and a barn to the area in which they filmed. Eight of the sheds were found in the local mountains nearby and were bought and rebuilt on the set. A total of twenty miles of reclaimed wood siding was used to create the remaining sheds and the barn, which the plane smashes through. The biggest challenge in Austria, however, lay elsewhere. Corbould says: "Initially, in Austria, there was no ice or snow. All our preparations were delayed and we had to travel quite a few miles to a different location to test the plane rigs and skidoos." So unseasonal was the weather in Austria that the production had to make four hundred tonnes of man-made snow to cover the hillside, which would normally be blanketed in white. Corbould concludes: "Austria was a full-on sequence". See more »


When Madeline Swann exits the safe house and approaches Bond (as well as in the aerial shot immediately after), Trafalgar Square can be seen in the background. To the left of the square, a building flying an American flag is visible. In reality, this building is Canada House, the home of the Canadian High Commission in London; it only flies the Canadian flag. See more »


Blofeld: You know what happens when a cuckoo hatches inside another bird's nest?
Madeleine Swann: Yes. It forces the other eggs out.
Blofeld: Yes. Well, this cuckoo made me realize my father's life had to end. In a way he's responsible for the path I took...
[to Bond]
Blofeld: So thank you, cuckoo!

A Return to Classic Fun Bond
9 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally we get to have some fun in the Daniel Craig era. Skyfall was good but underwhelming. This brings back the punches of classic Bond and has outstanding performances from Craig, Seydoux, and Waltz. Not to mention Harris (who is becoming crucial and wonderful in her character development), Fiennes, Winshaw, and Kinnear. Also Bellucci and Bautista serve their roles very well. Waltz was the funnest to watch and I always pegged him for this role of Bond villain since I first saw Inglorious Basterds and boy, he did not disappoint. He eats up his scenes and eschews the sadistic egomaniac with charm, style, and class. The scenery and shooting were breathtaking especially the shots in the Austrian Alps and the Train sequence was a great nod to the ghosts of Bonds past (From Russia with Love and The Spy Who Loved Me). Let's hope for many more.
