After earning 00 status and a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007. Bond must defeat a private banker funding terrorists in a high-stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro.
A cryptic message from James Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover the existence of a sinister organisation named SPECTRE. With a new threat dawning, Bond learns the terrible truth about the author of all his pain in his most recent missions.
Years after a friend and fellow 00 agent is killed on a joint mission, a secret space based weapons program known as "GoldenEye" is stolen. James Bond sets out to stop a Russian crime syndicate from using the weapon.
James Bond (Daniel Craig) goes on his first mission as a 00. Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) is a banker to the world's terrorists. He is participating in a poker game at Montenegro, where he must win back his money, in order to stay safe amongst the terrorist market. The boss of MI6, known simply as "M" (Dame Judi Dench) sends Bond, along with Vesper Lynd Eva Green) to attend this game and prevent Le Chiffre from winning. Bond, using help from Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini), and having Vesper pose as his partner, enters the most important poker game in his already dangerous career. But if Bond defeats Le Chiffre, will he and Vesper Lynd remain safe?Written by
The first film in the franchise to show James Bond as a rookie in MI6. In all of the other movies, he had long been a spy. See more »
While Bond is pumping Solange for information, she receives a phone call from Alex Dimitrios saying he will be on the last flight from Nassau to Miami. Bond then unceremoniously dumps her, leaves the beach condo and catches the same flight. It would be a relatively small aircraft flying the short distance from the Bahamas to Miami and let's face facts, both Bond and Dimitrios would probably be flying first class. Regardless, it's extremely unlikely Dimitrios would not have spotted Bond - who had just robbed him of his beloved Aston Martin DB5 only hours earlier.
There are several possible explanations for this. If this flight was a small aircraft, it might not even have a first class (a Delta CRJ200, for example, does not have a formal first class area - just "economy comfort" seats; and JetBlue doesn't have first class on any of its flights). Since Bond secured a seat on the flight at the last minute, he may have had to get a coach seat against his will. He might have even gotten a coach seat deliberately to avoid running into Dimitrios. It's also possible that the "last plane to Miami" didn't leave for a few hours and there were a few flights that left before that (Bond wouldn't have been able to follow Dimitrios until the last flight). It's also possible (although unlikely) that Bond took a connecting flight. See more »

The Chinese version is cut for violence (Obanno getting strangled, Bond cleaning up after the stairwell fight, and the torture scene) and sexual content (the foreplay on the boat). Additionally, Judi Dench had to re-dub one line to pass the censors. The line, "Christ, I miss the Cold War" was changed to, "God, I miss the old times". See more »
This is among the best bond movies! You have to see it.
After all the controversy and comments on Daniel Craig's potential as an actor and doubts over him playing Bond...i'd say forget it and be enthralled by the new BOND! He's here to stay.
He has that natural feeling about him when you see him on the screen as Bond, that attitude, style, confidence matched only by Sean COnnery. The movie as a whole is extremely entertaining and exciting.The acting is awesome Eva Green actually does a great job and has really improved her acting from the last time i saw her (in kingdom of heaven), but then this is a totally different movie.
There's a lot of action mixed with great story which i am sure will please the true Bond fan.
Please go and watch this because you will regret if you don't, forget the past this is the New Bond.
