Who doesn’t know James Bond, and who wouldn’t want to keep knowing more about him? Last September, we saw him in the movie ‘No time to die.’ It was the twenty-fifth movie in the James Bond series with an IMDb rating of 7.3/10. The movie was Daniel Craig’s fifth and last movie as, James Bond. Cary Joji Fukunaga directed the movie.
In this movie, Bond, the MI6 agent, is seen taking a break from his services. The CIA then recruits him to look for a scientist who was kidnapped. So that’s the mission we see James Bond involved in, in this movie.
A closer Look Into The Plot
Well, of course, you should not read any further if you do not want spoilers.
The movie starts with a flashback scene showing Madeline Swann as a young girl. She witnessed the murder of her mother, and Swann attacked him. Although she shot him, he did not die, and he was the one who saved her when she fell through a frozen lake.
In the present, we see Swann on vacation with James Bond. Swann sends James to visit the tomb of her old lover, and there he gets attacked and suspects her of betrayal. He then forces her to leave the town of Matera.
Five years later, Spectre kidnaps MI6 scientist Valdo Obruchev and steals Project Heracles. Bond was contacted to work on his search. He initially declined but later agreed.
Bond then reunites with Swann in her childhood home in Norway and meets his daughter. She insists that she is not his child. Later, when Bond is shot in his tussle with Safin. Swann talks to him and confirms that Mathilde is his daughter. James Bond dies, and Swann tells their daughter about her father.
