In Istanbul, James Bond (*Daniel Craig*) is injured in pursuit of a thief who's stolen a list of NATO agents embedded in terrorist organisations. Even though he initially plans to play dead, he decides to go back to work when he finds out MI6 has been attacked. Analyzing the shrapnel taken from his wound, Bond tracks down the thief in Macao, where the man has a casino. He is Raoul Silva (*Javier Bardem*, blond for the occasion!), a former secret agent gone rogue who makes a bundle in assassinations and fixing presidential elections. But what does this dangerous man want from M?
