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 S.P.E.C.T.R.E.
Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
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.
Producer Michael G. Wilson confirmed during the theatrical release of this movie, that Daniel Craig is not contracted for five films, and at the time of the interview, Craig is not under contract for Bond 25 (2019). Wilson told London's The Mirror, "We think we have him, but we don't have a contract", while Wilson said to The Hollywood Reporter, "that the studio (MGM) is confident of securing Craig for the inevitable Bond 25", according to website "We Got this Covered".

During the car chase in the mountains of Tirol/ Austria you can clearly see the license plates on the cars. Although they show the area code IL (Innsbruck Land) which is in Tirol, there is the federal state emblem of Vienna (Capital and a separate federal state of Austria). Tirol and Vienna are therefor different federal states. Each has a separate emblem and they are not even close/next to each other. See more »
Worst Bond Movie ever... how do they fill 2.5 hours with Nothing!
This is truly truly awful... now at the outset I have to say Im a HUGE BOND FAN... I cannot believe how dull this movie was... both Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes both must have 007 Fatigue as they both 'phone this in' I know when writing reviews you have to be careful not to add spoilers.. but guess what, there aren't any.. as nothing happens for 2.5 hours... just lots of overly long scenes of people talking or walking down hallways or driving in the desert... God only knows what they spent the $250 million on.. maybe a really good catering truck... Id like to go into depth of how dull this is, but Im too sleepy... . Where do I line up to get those 2.5 hours of my life back... the only thing I can say is that this movie makes Quantum of Solace look REALLY good....
