Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. 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. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale?

The movie's a pretty clear reference to the "water wars" in Bolivia in 2000, when water rights were sold to a corporation, which sharply increased the price beyond the ability of many Bolivians to pay for it, inciting demonstrations that forced the government to reverse the decision. The U.S. agreement in the movie to support a coup, in order to get oil, also recalls America's swift support for (and possible involvement with) the attempted coup against Chavez in Venezuela in 2002. Interestingly, the evil plot from the movie is less evil than the real-life one, as the intended price hike is less than the one that really happened. See more
It would be highly unlikely that in any country René Mathis could be charged, tried, acquitted and compensated in the time between the two films. However, there is no indication of how much time has elapsed between Bond getting Vesper's text message with Mr. White's phone number and Bond finally tracking him down. Also, Mathis was taken into MI6 custody for interrogation, not for trial. See more
