    Default James Bond - general question

    Quantum of Solace is the 22nd James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.

    We've had lots of different actors play James Bond, are they meant to be the same 007 in the movie or are they cast as fresh Bonds?

    I watched Casino Royale last night and near the beginning of the movie M it was made out that Daniel Craig, as James Bond, had only just been given the 007 status.

    If that is true then what happened to all the other 007's as we know them? and Why are they all called James bond?

    Casino Royale was supposed to be a prequel, as that's the fashion. But I've heard it mentioned a few times that 007 does get replaced, they keep the same name because of it's reputation. It strikes fear in the hearts of criminal geniuses. But not mine.

    Oh like what Star Wars did?

    Is Casino Royale meant to be the first James Bond then?

    My understanding is that they are all the same Bond, at different stages of his career. Casino Royale, as Mr M says, is a prequel, and is when he first starts at MI6. But the new film obviously has been updated to modern times. You need to sort of forget all the continuity problems that this introduces and just go with the flow. It's like regeneration in Doctor Who - full of flaws but it works.

    Talking of Casino Royale - and Woody Allen as Jimmy Bond and David Niven as James Bond - I never recovered after that monstrosity of a film

    Spoiler:


    Especially as they all went to 007 heaven at the end


    and then they threw in Sean Connery's actual brother in another load of doggy doo doo about James Bonds brother.

    I have done my best to forget that film's name! Operation Kid... Damn - its still there in the memory bank!

    Oh yeah, that really was a load of crap.

    Casino Royale is the first book written by Ian Fleming, Le Chiffre is part of SMERSH. but in the film the guy who kills Le Chiffre just says ''our organisation'.

    Has SMERSH been renamed as Quantum?

    Quantum of Solace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Vesper Lynd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Vesper was a double agent working for MVD and SMERSH.
