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?

Did You Know?
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
Bond arrives in La Paz and very soon afterwards is involved in fight scenes, car chases etc. In reality, as the altitude in La Paz is so great (12,000 ft), it is a struggle just to carry a suitcase out of the airport (even higher, at 13,500 ft), never mind to do all the things that Bond does. It takes several days to acclimatise before any strenuous activity is possible. See more
