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.

Trivia

This movie is not the first time that SPECTRE has been considered as a James Bond film title. 'The James Bond Bedside Companion' by Raymond Benson states that "SPECTRE" was one of the working titles (others were "Longitude 78 West" and "James Bond of the Secret Service") for the various original scripts, outlines, and treatments, which totaled to at least ten literary properties, that Ian Fleming, Kevin McClory and Jack Whittingham developed prior to Fleming using story elements from this material for his novel of Thunderball (1965), which later was adapted into that movie, and from which resulted a long-standing legal dispute. Moreover, after McClory's Never Say Never Again (1983), which was a remake of Thunderball (1965), McClory planned "a series of James Bond films based on the copyrights of of 'The Film Scripts' and the film rights to Thunderball (1965). Paradise Productions III made an announcement in February 1984 that the first film would be titled SPECTRE". See more »

Goofs

In the escape from the Spectre HQ, the MD500 helicopter is one of the only helicopters flown from the left-hand seat, Bonds flies from the right, this is correct for most other rotary craft. 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.
