Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro but things are not what they seem.
A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
A man named Owen Davian kills an IMF agent that was sent undercover by the legendary Ethan Hunt, who has retired from combat missions. Hunt now has a fiancé, Julia, who believes that he works for the traffic department when he really trains younger IMF agents to go into combat. He is assigned to his last mission. His mission, should he choose to accept it is to capture Davian, who is selling a toxic weapon called the rabbits foot. But Davian is reckless, cruel, and deathly. He promises Hunt that he will find Julia, hurt her, and Ethan will be too dead to help her. The mission is no more different to others, its dangerous, smart, and impossible; but now it's personal.
When Hunt makes his spectacular leap off a Shanghai skyscraper, he is on the east side of the Huangpu River that runs through the middle of the city. He ends up landing on the west side of the river, near Yanan Highway, which is about two kilometers away from the building, from which he had just jumped. See more »
(at around 50 mins) When Ethan put eye lenses in Vatican we can see veins on his hands. When Luther puts a mask on his face and says "congratulations", Ethan grabs him with his hands and veins disappeared. See more »
We put an explosive charge in your head. Does that sound familiar?

Well, this was straight to the point. Finally Hollywood seems to be over their boring (hoping for Oscar) drama movies. Good old Cruise returning as Ethan Hunt is what you will see here. Action consisting of explosions, clever bombs, helicopter chases, flashbacks to True Lies without spoiling too much, evil villains, heartbreaking stunts and a pretty okay script is what you can expect.
Some predictable scenes, but the fast paced action made the effort worth it with some very welcome ideas. You also got to love the scenery. Berlin, Vatikan and China is refreshing to see.
007 look out, hard to match this one!
Long time since I had such fun at the cinema. 9/10!
