imageHaving recently read Trigger Mortis, the latest Bond novel by Anthony Horowitz, I would like to watch SPECTRE the twenty-fourth James Bond film, which is fInally out on DVD. It features Daniel Craig as James Bond, Lea Sedoux, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Feinnes, Monica Bellucci and Christoph Waltz.

It starts shortly after the unfortunate death of M (Dame Judy Dench) at the hands of Raoul Silva and it is revealed that M has left James Bond a cryptic message. Meanwhile Gareth Mallory, (Ralph Feinnes) the newly appointed M, continues fighting political pressures that threaten the future of MI6 in the face of a global surveillance initiative code-named “Nine Eyes”. Bond’s investigations take him from Mexico City to Rome, and Austria where he meets Madalaine Swann, (Lea Sedoux) a psychologist who is working at a mysterious private medical clinic in the Austrian Alps, whose Father Mr. White turns out to be a dangerous fugitive from MI6 and is also a senior figure in the mysterious Quantum Organisation and Bond would very much like to meet him.

Bond is then dispatched To track down Lucia Sciarra, (Monica Bellucci) the widow of a notorious former criminal and assassin named Marco (Alessandro Cremona) who Bond assassinated. Not surprisingly she is unwilling to help Bond, however after a bit of “persuasion” she helps him infiltrate a sinister organization named SPECTRE (SPecial Executivie for Counter-intelligence Terrorism and Extortion). Gradually Bond soon finds himself drawn into a lethal web of intrigue which bring him into conflict with the sinister assassin named Mr Hinx (Dave Bautista) and a mysterious and illusive chap named Franz Oberhauser (Christopher Waltz) who is hiding a rather big secret.
