PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organisation from eliminating a country's most valuable resource.
The Aston Martin DBS makes a return in this movie, due to a three-movie, $100 million deal that Ford Motor Company has for exclusive vehicle product-placement rights.
Carabinieri on Radio:
Station from Patrol 48 - grey Aston Martin followed by a black Alfa Romeo driving towards the quarries. Gunshot fire.
Noticeable, obvious piece of white lint on Bond's right shoulder during the conversation at villa appears and disappears.
The iconic "James Bond gun barrel" sequence, not seen in its traditional format since Die Another Day, is incorporated into the closing credits.
Following an advisory screening of a rough cut, the film was pre-cut on BBFC advice in the UK before official submission to the Board for a formal cinema classification, with edits made to one scene in the finale. It was subsequently passed "uncut" as a 12A. More detailed notes can be found on the BBFC's website. Worldwide versions are this same pre-cut version.
