Storyline

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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

When stopped by security, James Bond bluffs his way into S.P.E.C.T.R.E.'s Rome Headquarters by claiming to be Mickey Mouse. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), the title character attempts to bluff his way into a European castle to rescue his captive father, who was played by Sir Sean Connery, who first played James Bond on the big screen. The security guard laughs off Indiana's fake identity by loudly exclaiming: "If you are Scottish Lord, then I am Mickey Mouse!" See more »

Goofs

In addition to the other firearm handling errors noted here, when Bond is clearing the building near the end, he holds the handgun out in front of him with first one arm then both arms extended. When clearing a building, an experienced person such as Bond would hold the gun in a "ready" position close to his chest so it could not be easily pulled away as he rounded a corner. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Bond must never die Oh My
18 November 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Reviewers notes humbly submitted:

1. This reviewer not only watched all the Sean Connery movies in theatres but read all the novels too. Does that date me?

2. The Biography Channel Special on Ian Fleming portrayed him as an ageing indolent frat boy who wrote his novels using a typewriter on the beach using the two finger method while cavorting. Hard to believe such innocent beginnings led to a franchise that just will not die.

3. Speaking of franchises, Hollywood is running out. Which is why Stallone was able to raise the cash to turn his C-rated Expendables series into an A level franchise. And why Fast and Furious -- which started out as a drama script not a special effects gimmick -- is the new Mission Impossible. So, against this backdrop, if you are going to do Bond, you do it big. At least that is what the producers thought. At 2 and half hours, however, the audience starts to wonder if .. maybe ... less is more?

4. Craig is good. Probably the best Bond since Sean. If only the writers and producers could support him the way he deserves.

5. The first reboot with Craig was the best, remains the best. The second was horrid. The bizarre entry which took place in his childhood home in the English countryside -- the one where a classic car was gratuitously machine-gunned for no obvious reason -- almost killed the franchise completely. This entry -- essentially a mishmash of Dr. No and the old Mannix TV show with a dollop of modern political correctness thrown in -- is OK, but will never make it to brilliant.

6. Times change, years pass. The gold standard for this sort of movie is the Damon/Bourne series, even more ironic because (so far) that franchise remains in limbo. The first reboot here was a close competitor. So far, no other instalment in this series has even come close.
