Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
When Bond's latest assignment goes gravely wrong and agents around the world are exposed, MI6 is attacked forcing M to relocate the agency. These events cause her authority and position to be challenged by Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the new Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows - aided only by field agent, Eve (Naomie Harris) - following a trail to the mysterious Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.Written by
Patrice's (Ola Rapace's) gun in the film, is a one hundred-round drum mag semi-automatic Glock 18 machine pistol-class firearm, which fires twenty rounds per second. The firearm has an effective range of fifty meters (fifty-five yards) and a muzzle velocity of twelve hundred thirty feet per second (three hundred seventy-five meters per second). It's an Austrian gun that was developed at the request of EKO Cobra, the Austrian counterterrorist unit. See more »
When Bond arrives at the Skyfall house and meets Kincaid, Bond introduces 'm' only as 'M', but Kincaid shakes M's hand and says "nice to meet you Emma". Since this is not either the character's full name (as far as we know), or the actresses name, it was probably either deliberately misheard by Kincaid ('M' and 'Emma'), or an easy affectation for the name he really heard. 'M' and 'Emma' are not very different, especially for someone not used to only hearing a single letter as somebody's name. Plus Kincaid may have thought Bond was saying Em, which is a commonly used shortened form for Emma. See more »

Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
Where is it? Is it there?
Hard drives gone.
It's gone. Give me a minute.
They must have it! Get after them!
I'm stabilizing Ronson.
We don't have the time!
I have to stop the bleeding!

Bond's traditional shot towards the camera, seen through the barrel of a gun, is placed at the end of this film rather than the beginning. After the blood stops dripping, the James Bond 50th Anniversary logo appears with the words "James Bond will return," below it. See more »
Some people thought Daniel Craig was too much like Bourne and the Bond style film had been abandoned. If you were worried about that fear not - Bond is back.
The film has great stunts & thrills - you'll see this in the long opening sequence. Bond is not burdened with gadgets and still has lots of energy.
Ignore the plot credibility (not as far fetched as some plots like Moonraker) and usual level of general film fiction where it comes to computing.
All the characters are great, from the MI6 team members to the villain (Silva) who acts like a traditional Bond villain. It is very easy to provide details and reveal the plot - the way the trailer was edited means it has not given too much away.
This film will provide thrills & you will laugh more than you did with Craig's last two films.
Classic Bond is back and it was a joy to see it, if you are a Bond enthusiast there are lots of treats in store.
