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?
This film marks the first time since You Only Live Twice
(1967) that Bond does not introduce himself with the catchphrase "Bond, James Bond." The line was shot for several different scenes, but was completely cut out, as Forster and the producers found it unnecessary. (From Russia with Love
(1963), and Thunderball
(1965) also do not use the line) The other staple Bond line stating a "vodka martini, shaken not stirred" does not appear in this movie either. See more
