Storyline

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 simon

Alternate Versions

The German version is cut in the scene where a terrorist kills a fuelling vehicle driver at the airport. A few frames where you see when the driver's neck is broken were replaced by extending the shot of the ground right before the driver goes down. Also the shot where you see the driver lying on the ground from a long shot is shortened whereas the closeup of the driver's head is extended. See more »

Eva Green Is Hot
4 September 2020 | by qwtymsvSee all my reviews

What a woman. Total babe. I would protect her too if she were mine (or not). Women so slim push up the ratings of course, but we expect no less from a Bond Girl (short hair Halle Berry aside). The rest film was OK but too much cards and casino and they could have devoted more time to the action. Also, two films with the same name? Come on!?!
