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 Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style" exhibition has had items from the movie added to the display. These include the clapperboard and the iconic S.P.E.C.T.R.E. ring of evil. This film's official website states: "This type of ring, which has the famous S.P.E.C.T.R.E. organization logo on it, first appeared in the film From Russia with Love (1963), but has been updated for Spectre (2015). Production Designer Dennis Gassner worked with Key Graphic Designer Laura Grant to create a more up-to-date version of the S.P.E.C.T.R.E. octopus ring. These two new pieces can be seen, along with more than five hundred items from the Bond films, including costumes, gadgets, props, storyboards, and models." See more »
In the final scene, where the restored Aston Martin DB5 is seen driving away, the "GB plate" it's had in all previous appearances is missing. Of course "Q" could've simply forgotten to apply one, but one is still required for driving on the continent. See more »

I went into this movie blank.I had never seen any trailer, or read any of the reviews about it. But I was bored throughout the entire movie.I felt i was watching one of those 60-70's bond with the dated lines and the tiresome old clichés.And they are endless. As someone else in her put it,you feel like you're watching Austin powers instead. ************warning spoilers************spoilers*****************spoilers I mean you understand from the very beginning that his new boss is working for the enemy. And when the bad guys always find him wherever he goes,you sort'a know right away it's the tracker MI6 put in his body,that helps the bad guys. I felt I was watching a kid movie,with a plot written by a dilatant. Go watch true lies instead,much better movie,with better action. After watching this I get why Craig is tired of bond,cause this script is really bad
