As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him.

Trivia

General Medrano is the only prominent villain in the James Bond franchise to not have a physical, or at least a face-to-face, confrontation with Bond. The closest the two came to each other was when Bond crashed into Medrano's ship, and took Camille, Medrano promptly yelled for his men to chase after him. A previous secondary villain to share very little screentime with Bond was General Orlov of Octopussy (1983), but Orlov did face Bond in one short scene, and they exchanged a few lines of dialogue.

Goofs

During the airplane chase scene, Camille takes off her headset and runs to the rear of the plane. She yells instructions to Bond who is still wearing his headset and he reacts even though there would be no way he'd be able to hear her. See more »

Quotes

M: Restrict Bond's movement. Cancel his cards. Put an alert on his passports. All of them.

fine actors cannot save one of the worst James Bond films
27 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Let me say from the start that Daniel Craig is one of the finest actors having played James Bond, maybe the best since Sean Connery. Judy Dench is also the best M. ever, and the idea of a female M. is just genial. Yet, the series are in trouble, and something needs to be done to save the series from the downturn that seems worst than the world economy.

I will call the film QOS because the name requires a non-native English speaker to use a dictionary to understand it - and this is one of the many small problems that make a big disappointment. Another one is the unconvincing evil character. Another one is the lack of global threats in the intrigue - to justify the immense destruction and number of widows and orphans left on the track a James Bond movie must invent something more interesting than the water supply of Bolivia revealed as the big motivation way into the film. The action scenes themselves are well made, but too fast, too many, to confuse to help the viewers understand what is going on and care beyond the pure aesthetics of destruction.

Bringing on the set fine actors and redesigning the character into a human being with real feelings as well as into a darker Bond fit to the world of today is a great idea. It is not enough though. Bringing good script writers is even more important.

Oh, and yes, please bring back Q. and please have Bond say at least once 'My name is Bond. James Bond'. There is no such thing as a good Bond film without those.
