CASINO ROYALE introduces JAMES BOND before he holds his license
to kill. But Bond is no less dangerous, and with two professional
assassinations in quick succession, he is elevated to "00" status. "M" (Judi
Dench), head of the British Secret Service, sends the newly-promoted
007 on his first mission that takes him to Madagascar, the Bahamas
and eventually leads him to Montenegro to face Le Chiffre, a
ruthless financier under threat from his terrorist clientele,
who is attempting to restore his funds in a high-stakes poker
game at the Casino Royale. "M" places Bond under
the watchful eye of the Treasury official Vesper Lynd.
At first skeptical
of what value Vesper can provide, Bond's interest in her
deepens as they brave danger together. Le Chiffre's cunning
come to bear on them both in a way Bond could never imagine,
and he learns his most important lesson: Trust no one.
