Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.Written by
The climax of the opening chase sequence takes place at the breathtaking Varda Bridge, about an hour's travel (give or take, depending on travelling speed) out of Adana, in southern Turkey. The stone arch structure is also known by several other names, including: Alman Köprüsü (German Viaduct), Koca Köprüthe (Big Viaduct), the Varda Viaduct, and the Giaour Dere Viaduct. Construction was started in 1905 and was completed in 1916, the bridge being around five hundred seventy feet (one hundred seventy-four meters) long and three hundred twenty-two feet (ninety-eight meters) high. The viaduct was originally designed and built by Imperial German engineers for the former Ottoman Empire, as part of the Istanbul-Baghdad Railway Project. See more »
When M is reading Bond's obituary, he is referred to as 'Commander James Bond C.M.G. R.N.'. A Royal Naval officer's rank is always either written in full ('Commander James Bond CMG Royal Navy') or fully abbreviated ('Cdr James Bond CMG RN'). 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 »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
I'm having a hard time expressing myself when it comes to this movie. It was a great movie all in all, but I feel like there's something missing.
Javier Bardem played the villain fantastically, the way he spoke and acted gave you chills and made you believe that there was something beneath his facade. (I don't think it's worth mentioning that Daniel Craigs acting was good, that has already been acknowledged).
After almost two hours in, I felt that I had so many questions unanswered and I started to worry how the movie was going to answer all of them in just half an hour. But I wasn't disappointed. Yet I was still hoping for something more, in a way.
There was just bits missing that would have made the film so much more better (even though it was great). For example getting to know more about Raoul Silvas life would have given him a stronger role in the movie. But I believe that the thing that i was the most disappointed about was Q. Bringing the character back after a few years sure brings peoples hopes up. And I was really expecting the cool gadgets that we've seen in the earlier movies. It was always fantastic to see the awesome stuff that a 007 got access to that made the spy life seem so cool. But in this movie I feel like they under-did his role a bit. A gun responding to fingerprints is cool, but the last time we saw Q, Bond got an invisible car with rocket launchers and a ring that could break glass. Sure they try to make the movies more realistic today, but I still feel that giving him a bigger role would have brought the movie up a bit.
Although I don't want to complain to much. The movie was great, go see it, you will like it and its a bit darker side than the previous films.
