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.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6 led by M. Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.
The sign outside the safe house says that it was a bookshop called "Hildebrand". "The Hildebrand Rarity " is (to date, August 2017) an unused title for a Bond movie from an Ian Fleming short story included in the "For Your Eyes Only" collection. See more »
When Bond and Madeleine are travelling by train, he decides this is a good time to teach her how to use a firearm. Unknowingly that she is fully aware how to operate a firearm, he tells her it's as easy as to point, aim and squeeze the trigger, then hands over a loaded pistol with a round in the chamber and the safety off.

The opening credits feature octopuses (the Spectre logo) and their tentacles, scenes from the film, skull faces, romantic scenes, and ladies/villains from the previous Daniel Craig films. See more »
In the German language version the character Dr. Vogel, who first reports at the SPECTRE meeting in Rome, speaks Hungarian, not German like in the original English version. The reasons for this significant change are unknown. But the organization SPECTRE now appears more 'foreign' to a German audience. See more »
Spectre is the latest Bond movie since 2012's Skyfall. Now I'll make a statement- This movie is spectacular !! The directing is great, Daniel Craig just won't disappoint, Christoph Woltz is excellent, the new Bond girl Léa Seydoux is absolutely amazing, the dialog is brilliant, the action scenes are more than superb, Ben Whishaw gets the best lines and makes the film all the more enjoyable and funny, Dave Bautista is so amazing. Pretty much every person featured in this film was great and beyond. My only issue I had with this film and the reason I give Spectre 9/10 is because (no spoilers) in a certain action scene, there were a couple of seconds with a shaky cam and it bothered me and gave me a small headache because I watched this film in IMAX. Other than that, everything was enjoyable for me, it's a great Bond film, not better than Casino Royale tho, but as enjoyable as Skyfall was.
