There is one big question left after watching the latest Bond’s movie, Spectre: Is this the last episode?
Since Skyfall, James Bond has been rich in drama by the death of M. Such nature continues in Spectre, in which Bond (Daniel Craig) finally finds his true love, Madeleine (Lea Seydoux). He tells Q that he is retired. It is unclear whether he will take another assignment or not. One thing for sure, he rides his car with beloved Madeleine at the end the movie. Ernst Stravo Blofeld (Christoph Waltz), the actor behind Spectre, an international organized crime, is apparently Bond’s step-brother. He hates Bond so much that he killed his own father 20 years ago. It is Blofeld who takes advantages on Bond’s misfortune due to being jealous on his father’s relationship with Bond.
Bond doesn’t know this fact at first as he only does what the late M asked before her death. It is M video prior to her death that leads him to pursue Marco Sciarra to Mexico. The new M (Ralph Fiennes) gets angry with him since the Mexico incident puts MI6 into trouble. Max Denbigh or C (Andrew Scott) is about to acquiesce the organization under his leadership. It means the end of MI6’s undertaking. MI6 can do no more.
After getting information from Lucia Sciarra (Monica Belucci), Bond goes to Rome to attend Spectre’s meeting following Marco’s death. To his surprise, his presence has been acknowledged by Blofeld. Based on information he acquired during the meeting, he goes to Austria to meet White who asks for his promise to keep her daughter, Madeleine, safe. Bond then pursues the daughter to get more information and also protect her. Action and romance have characterised both role till the end of the movie ever since.
M, Q, and Moneypenny can’t do nothing to help Bond in action since they are under the surveilance of the powerful C thanks to the use of latest IT technology. C himself is about to launch complete surveilance program by pushing some intelligence agencies worldwide. To meet his goal, he works together with Blofeld. And, Bond has to do what he needs to do in order to save his country, the world, and also his personal life. What happen in the new James Bond? Just wait, then.
