Craig’s interpretation was like nothing we’d seen on screen before; Jimmy Bond was earning his stripes and making mistakes.

A moment where he rises from the sea is reminiscent of Ursula Andress in Dr. No; he feels "skewered" by Vesper Lynd's criticism of him; "and though it would be almost unthinkable now have a female character in a mainstream film stripped naked and threatened with genital mutilation, that is exactly what happens to Bond in [the film]." So although the film backed off from past criticism of Bond girls being sex objects, "the once invincible James Bond becomes just another joint at the meat market".[88] This sentiment is shared by the University of Leicester's James Chapman, author of License to Thrill, who also notes Craig's Bond is "not yet the polished article"; he felt his incarnation of Bond is close to Fleming's because he is "humourless", but is also different because "Fleming's Bond did not enjoy killing; Craig's Bond seems almost to relish it."[89]

James Bond

  • [Bond returns to his seat in a game of poker after being poisoned, much to the surprise and dismay of Le Chiffre] I'm sorry. That last hand... nearly killed me.

M

  • Who the hell do they think they are? I report to the Prime Minister, and even he's smart enough not to ask me what we do. Have you ever seen such a bunch of self-righteous, arse-covering prigs? They don't care what we do; they care what we get photographed doing. And how the hell could Bond be so stupid? I give him double-O status and he celebrates by shooting up an embassy! Is the man deranged? And where the hell is he? In the old days, if an agent did something that embarrassing, he'd have the good sense to defect! Christ, I miss the Cold War!

Dialogue

Bond: M really doesn't mind you earning a little money on the side, Dryden. She'd just prefer if it weren't selling secrets.
Dryden: If the theatrics are supposed to scare me, you have the wrong man, Bond. If M was so sure I was bent, she'd have sent a Double-O. Benefits of being Section Chief. I'd know of anyone being promoted to Double-O status, wouldn't I? Your file shows no kills and it takes...
Bond: Two.
Dryden: [pulling his gun on Bond] Shame. We barely got to know each other.
[Dryden pulls the trigger. Nothing happens]
Bond: [Holds up the gun's magazine] I know where you keep your gun. I suppose that's something.
Dryden: True. How did he die?
Bond: Your contact? Not well.
Dryden: Made you feel it, did he? Well, you needn't worry. The second is...
[Bond draws his gun and shoots him dead]
Bond: Yes. Considerably.

Steven Obanno: Do you believe in God, Mr. Le Chiffre?
Le Chiffre: No. I believe in a reasonable rate of return.

M: How the hell did you find out where I lived!?
.Bond: Same way I found out your name.^ In the pre-title sequence, Bond leads a mission to North Korea, during which he is found out and, after killing a rogue North Korean colonel, he is captured and imprisoned.

I thought "M" was a randomly assigned letter. I had no idea it stood for—
M: Utter one more syllable and I'll have you killed. I knew it was too early to promote you.
