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.

Trivia

The movie featured a ski resort setting in Sölden, Austria, which has an eatery with a similar real-life name to the regular James Bond series franchise character of "Q". The "Ice Q" restaurant is a cuboid all glass-wall-panelled mountain top diner, and placed adjacent to its associated 3S cable car and five-star "Das Central Hotel" situated on top of the three thousand forty-eight meter (ten thousand foot) high Gaislachkogel (Gaislachkogl) Mountain. The locale will likely evoke the mountain peak villain's lair of Ernst Stavro Blofeld's (Telly Savalas's) "Piz Gloria" from On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), which also featured the criminal organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E., but had its snow scenes instead shot in Switzerland. It is this "Ice Q" snow-capped mountain top setting, which was one of the deciding factors why Sölden, Austria was chosen as shooting location for the film. See more »

Goofs

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 »

User Reviews

 
A truly unexciting 'action' movie
22 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is the worst Bond movie ever, filled with emotionless characters that I couldn't care less about. The pace of this film after a predictably exciting start is slow and boring. Unlike his fellow actors, Ben Whishaw as Q manages to portray the only believable human in this whole fake production. Why couldn't JB have been given a touch of Q's wit, humour or vulnerability? No wonder Daniel Craig wants out of this franchise - it's beneath his talent. Such a cacophony of totally forgettable dialogue, people and silly stunts is hard to imagine in a single movie and yet here it is. During one of the 'action' fights when James was being hammered by the evil assassin I noticed the person next to me had fallen asleep and was snoring. That person was an exceedingly eloquent critic.
