Based on Ian Fleming’s first 007 novel, James Bond (Daniel Craig) must thwart a dangerous Russian spy who is funding global terrorists from winning a poker game worth millions. The 21st film in the most successful film series in cinematic history.



  1. I love it when the people getting paid to write the descriptions don't bother to do research into the movie.
    His name is LeChiffre. A French name. But he's Albanian.
    In the books, he is also Albanian, but works for the USSR counterintel agency SMERSH rather than the fictional SPECTRE.

  2. Wow. The 'Algerian Love Knot' dinner scene. Scary, intelligent, intense post-150 Euro high stakes poker game win, possibly romantic date. Glad this doesn't exist in real life. Your date would end up a pile of ashes.

  3. Hard to believe that the director almost nixed Daniel Craig because he didnt think he could project the enigma of Bond. I think he is right up there with the real 007-Sir Sean Connery RIP 007

  4. They told me in school that fiction required a "willing suspension of disbelief" in order to work for the reader or viewer. Hah! The thrills ( bathroom beating, stairway sword fight, coupe' cardiac arrest, transported me into the movie and suspended any skepticism I might have. That's how outstanding writing, acting, and photography can alter a two dimensional movie into four dimensional reality. Fleming, Purvis, Haggis, & Wade deserve respect as does Martin Campbell. Wow. From running up a giant crane to zapping your heart in a car: that's excitement. That's what you get in a Roger Craig, Broccoli Bond film. Wow!
