Storyline

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Belluci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Meanwhile, back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond's actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Miss Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of S.P.E.C.T.R.E. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of S.P.E.C.T.R.E., he learns a chilling connection between him and the enemy he seeks.

Did You Know?

Trivia

A clip in one of the trailers shows James Bond (Daniel Craig) walking through MI6, with people stopping and looking at him, was cut from the final movie. It would have also featured Bond noticing a camera, and asking C (Andrew Scott) about watching his own agents. One of the trailers also shows Miss Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) saying to Bond, at his apartment, that forensics have recovered some items from Skyfall. In the finished movie, Miss Eve Moneypenny says the "forensics have discovered some items from Skyfall" line of dialogue to Bond in the MI6 courtyard, and not at his apartment. See more »

Goofs

Bond detonates an explosive so large that it breaks loose the facade on the building across the street and then collapse that entire facade on the building across the street, collapsing its roof and front wall. This explosion, however neither seriously injures Bond, nor does it cover the opposite roof in debris from the explosion. Additionally, despite only being less than 30-40 feet from such a powerful explosion, Bond (who is neither wearing hearing protection, nor body armor) is not deafened, nor injured by the blast.

Alternate Versions

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 »

Enjoyable installment in Bond series with lots of noisy action, thrills, emotion and spectacular scenes
22 January 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Nice entry stars Daniel Craig as the tough, two-fisted James Bond who takes on nasty organization nicknamed Spectra with a octopus-like symbol . After a risked and disastrous assignment in Mexico, Bond is suspended. But he goes on his activities by tracking down a massive criminal syndicate. Then Bond receives a cryptic message from his dark past, it sends him pitted against a sinister and criminal group. It is led by a terrorist chief, Blofeld : Chistoph Waltz who has an ancient relationship with Bond's own childhood. While Q , Ben Wishaw, delivers him some rare and fantastic artifacts to carry out his dangerous missions. Shortly after, MI6 chief M : Ralph Fiennes is replaced by another boss, Andrew Scott. Later on, Bond meets the beautiful daughter, Lea Seydoux, of a long time enemy and then things go wrong.

Once again Bond confronts an ominous and bloody organization with terrorist purports . This film takes parts of other 007 episodes as the violent fight between Bond and a hunk contender : Dave Bautista on a train , similar to Sean Connery versus Robert Shaw in From Russia with love. And the impresssive finale including the stronhold facility in the sunny desert and its destruction bears remarkable resemblance to Quantum of solace. Nicely played by Daniel Craig, this is his fourth entry, first was Casino Royale, following Quantum of solace and Skyfall. He is well accompanied by a young Bond girl, Lea Seydoux, and another Bond woman, the mature Monica Bellucci, the eldest Bond girl. The heinous leader of the powerful organization Spectra is magnetically performed by usual villain Christoph Waltz. Adding regulars of the old franchise as M well played by Ralph Fiennes, Q finely acted Ben Wishaw and Naomy Harris as Moneypenny.

The film packs a colorful and glimmering cinematography by Hoyte Van Hoytema, shot in various locations as Mexico city, Austria and especially in London. As well as pounding and rousing musical score by Thomas Newman. The motion picture was well directed by Sam Mendes, though with no originaly. Mendes is a good director who has made some successful films played by important actors, such as : Jarhead, American Beauty, Revolutionary road, Road to perdition and another Bond movie : Skyfall. Rating: Above average. Well worth watching.
