Shortly after the events of Skyfall, double zero agent James Bond ( Daniel Craig ) receives one last unofficial assignment from his old boss. This time it takes him to Mexico City, where he leaves a trail of devastation in his wake and gets a lead on a far-reaching criminal organization. Her name is ‘Spectre‘. In Rome, Bond manages to gain access to a secret meeting. There he meets Franz Oberhauser ( Christoph Waltz ), the head of the organization. To get ahead of him in his further plans, 007 tracks down the young Madeleine Swann ( Léa Seydoux ), who Oberhauser also seems interested in.
At the same time, M ( Ralph Fiennes ) is struggling in London with young and aspiring Max Denbigh ( Andrew Scott ), head of the Center for National Security. In fact, he believes that the double zero programs should be a thing of the past, since, in his opinion, the future belongs to total surveillance. So this could not only be Bond’s most dangerous mission, but also his last.
The things that come to mind when you think of the Agent Licensed to Kill movies: are martinis, Bond girls, torture scenes, car chases, pretty suits, and so on. A few more points could easily be added to this list. And that’s exactly what makes James Bond so successful over and over again. The film Spectre is not only well-made but also has an almost uniquely high recognition value. And that’s exactly why so many people love this franchise! You already know roughly what to expect when you enter the cinema hall, but you still like to watch and be carried away and entertained. If the next few films don’t completely fail, there’s a good chance that this series of films will outlive us all.
