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.

Goofs

In "Dr. No", "M" required James Bond to turn in his 25-calibre Baretta and replaced it with a 7.65 mm Walther PPK.

Bond has continued to use the Walther PPK in subsequent films, including SPECTRE.

In SPECTRE, Bond "racks the slide" (loads a round into the firing chamber) at least twice just before going into action. An agent with Bond's experience would never have done that due to the features of the Walther PPx series, because, by doing so, he would have reduced his shot capacity by one.

In all variants, (PP, PPK, PPK/S, etc.), the weapon has a bullet capacity of "X+1", which means "X" rounds in the magazine and 1 in the chamber, ready to fire. For the PPK in 7.65 mm, the capacity is 7+1, not a large capacity by today's standards, so when Bond would have prepared his PPK well before any need to use it, he would have loaded the magazine with the maximum 7 rounds, racked the slide to put one round in the chamber, removed the magazine, and put in another round to restore a full 8-round capacity. Racking the slide does put the hammer back, making the weapon ready to fire, but when the safety is activated, a metal bar rotates over the firing pin and then allows the hammer to fall forward safely onto that bar, preventing its firing until the safety as moved to the firing position.

Because the PPx series are DA/SA (double-action/single action), and are exceptionally safe when carried with a round in the chamber, hammer down, to go into action, Bond need only move the safety to "fire," pull the trigger double-action for the first shot which cocks the hammer and fires, then each subsequent round would be single-action because the hammer would be back, ready for the next shot.

Big Brother Says 100% Of Viewers Loved It, Honest!
2 February 2016 | by (Quis Ut Deus?) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

First, not since You Only Live Twice have I nodded off during a Bond movie. You think you have seen slow have you? Well, pony up to the bar, buddy, this is the big leagues of boring. When I read these positives, I remember that studios own all the media outlets today including papers. Forgive me IMDb, but I notice that movies that are currently in the theaters seem to have numbers much higher than after they are gone from the cinemas. In short, the reviews are bought and paid for like everything else in the global oligarchs' reality. Yes, my friends, conglomerates own papers that review the movies that are also subsidiaries of these very same multinationals. The elephant in the room, for those of you reading this in the back, after IMDb cashes that big check, is that this movie makes Lawrence Of Arabia look like Shoot Em Up. Eternal travel, here to there, there to here, on and on ad freaking infinitum. The theater I saw this in had a steady stream of grumbling about fifteen minutes into the film. This grew louder and more obscene; then, the exodus began in earnest. The plot has been used before in about a dozen recent movies (Jack Ryan) the tired old information total control. Show of hands, who thinks that the NSA isn't reading this review as I freaking type it? See, the classic Bonds, especially when they feature effeminate P's as their villains( Moonraker) have genocide as the plot, that is interesting.

Oh, no! They are going to get access to all the intelligence networks, stop the presses. Waltz is a dwarf who is about as frightening as my dirty underwear. He prattles on, as he did in Inglorious Retards, until I begin throwing food from my plate at the screen. Boring and Not Scary. See, the original Blofeld was quite kind right before he killed you( Diamonds Are Forever). Pee-Wee could only talk someone to death that is the sum of his intimidation. I see others have highlighted the bizarre fight with Bautista, this is the same all through the movie. Fights without injury, blowing one's brains out with no blood or gore; the movie's sense of reality is painful. Compare to For Your Eyes Only when that hot woman gets run over. To those of you reading the paid reviewers up front, do not believe the crap: it sucks A@@. Perhaps a handful of comic book readers think they are watching something profound, I doubt it. Don't believe me? Go look at the IMDb rating for the new crappy Star Wars that has 97% bad reviews yet an IMDb rating of 8.4? Trust me, you don't need a degree in Math to see corruption, it is right there.

I know other people who have seen this and, out of six, there was one person who barely liked it but said it was boring in parts. C has the charisma of a clam. Blofeld and C are perfect together both are not frightening but chatter on endlessly. How about the dumb ass ending? Here is a man who admits being responsible for M's, Vespers, Mathis, and plenty of others' deaths and what does our icy, sociopathic, nasty bastard Bond do? He lets him live, yes, they need him in future movies. Please, the Bond of Casino Royale would have shot him in the legs working his way slowly up to the vital areas while eating some caviar. Yes, fan-boys, that is just what this Bond would do to the villain who killed Vesper and M, let him live. This is an example of how retarded the writing is: boring, pointless, uninteresting, non-threatening and contradictory. Yes, that's right, in Quantum Bond kills anybody remotely connected with Vesper's death but here, the only two people he cared for's killer and he walks freaking away.

My friends, I signed off of IMDb after Star Wars, because I realize, like all media sites, this one is corrupt like every other one. When you read reviews in papers or on sites, remember giant corporations own the papers that review the movie companies' movies that they also own. How objective do you think they are going to be? I still will read many of your reviews but I refuse to contribute because it is so obviously corrupt. Go see it or buy it, don't say I didn't warn you. I have all the Bonds but I will not buy this one. Big Brother says it is thought-crime. Sorry. Deus Vobiscum. IMDb. Q.E.D.
