Collection of espionage thrillers starring Daniel Craig as the well-known MI6 agent, James Bond. ‘Casino Royale’ (2006) follows a young Bond at the beginning of his career having just received his double-0 status. For his latest mission, 007 travels to Montenegro to investigate the highly exclusive Casino Royale where Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a money man for an international terrorist group, is raising funds for their misdeeds through high-stakes gambling. The rookie MI6 agent, aided by British Treasury agent Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), is tasked with infiltrating the group and ultimately defeating the rogue player – both on and off the tables. In ‘Quantum of Solace’ (2008), after being betrayed by Vesper, Bond turns his sights on those who controlled her. Interrogating Mr White (Jesper Christensen), Bond discovers that the shadowy organisation responsible for blackmailing Vesper is a lot more powerful and dangerous than he ever imagined. Tracing a link to Hawaii, Bond soon crosses paths with Ukrainian beauty Camille (Olga Kurylenko) who leads him to megalomaniacal businessman Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), head of the organisation known simply as Quantum. Wishing to control one of the world’s natural resources, Greene’s organisation has a finger in every government agency worldwide, and it falls to Bond to keep one step ahead of his friends, and enemies, to stop Greene holding the world to ransom. In ‘Skyfall’ (2012) Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her, and Bond’s own doubts about his life and livelihood start to creep in. As MI6 comes under attack and Bond is sent to Shanghai to investigate, he must keep his focus on tracking down and destroying the threat – no matter how high the personal cost. Finally, in ‘Spectre’ (2015), after the devastating attack on MI6, a cryptic message leads Bond on a rogue mission to Rome where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the widow of a notorious crime lord. On infiltrating a top secret meeting, Bond discovers the existence of the global crime organisation SPECTRE and sets about trying to expose them and ultimately bring them down.
