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.
First James Bond film to feature the character with the code-name letter alias name of "C" (as with "M", "Q" and "R"). "C" is Max Denbigh, head of Mi5, portrayed by Andrew Scott. Denbigh is the fourth main character in the franchise in the British Secret Service to have a single code letter name and he's the fifth if one counts the Russian Major Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach) from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) who was code-named Agent XXX.

In the final scene, where the restored Aston Martin DB5 is seen driving away, the "GB plate" it's had in all previous appearances is missing. Of course "Q" could've simply forgotten to apply one, but one is still required for driving on the continent. See more »
Despite an initial action scene full of CGI that you can also experience in the trailer, this movie hasn't got too much to offer.
The main problem is the bad script and dialogs and the pretentious style which tries to keep the tradition of older Bond films incorporating some not-so-witty and cliché humor and ludicrous action sequences with nothing new to offer. Planes, helicopters, cars...Well we've seen it all before and in much better executions.
Also Blofeld (or should I say BLOWfeld), despite the fact he is the King of all previous villains, seems quite harmless.
Casino Royale (2006) is far more entertaining (I've watched it again recently) and engaging. Spectre is "Meh!" in almost every department including (unfortunately) the ladies.
Thomas Newman who serves as the composer of the film, is proved to be a bad decision too. At the beginning he tries to revive the good-old 007 theme in almost every scene and the outcome is sub-par to say the least. Later he replaces the music with the same note again and again (da-da-da-da-da-da-da). David Arnold did a great job in C.R. and should have been the composer in this too (although I doubt that he could save this movie).
And what's the deal with this lame song? Unsuitable for a Bond movie or any movie out there. Same goes for the same-o same-o intro sequence. The combination of these 2 makes it look like it was made by Liberace.
Overall: The whole movie is pale like the Pale King it mentions.
