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.
Thallium poisoning is treatable, notably using Prussian Blue, and if the dosage is so low that you still have weeks to live, there is plenty of time and a good chance for the treatment to succeed. The writers possibly confused the effects with those of ricin or polonium poisoning. See more »

In the UK theatrical release, when Bond lands with his parachute in the middle of a street in Rome (after the car chase), and greets someone, he says "Buona Sera" - the Italian for 'Good Evening'. In the UK DVD release, this line has been dubbed, with him saying the English "Good Evening". See more »
When the viewer watches any 007 franchise, he or she knows what is going to see: an entertaining full of action adventure, with beautiful women, car chase, conspiracy, great villains, predictable story and a brainless screenplay. "Spectre" is no exception and provides an additional amusing situation, with the weirdo Daniel Craig seducing the gorgeous Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci without any chemistry. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "007 Contra Spectre" ("007 against Spectre")
