The short plot synopsis of "SPECTRE" doesn't reveal anything about the "sinister and terrible truth" behind the villain's scheme:
"A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While "M" battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind S.P.E.C.T.R.E"
Just a quick overview of the villain's schemes from previous three Bond films:
": The villain, chess protégé Le Chiffre, is the leading financer to globally operating terrorists. He works on contract basis for a secret organization. But the way he is financing terrorists is tricky and uttermost risky. He is trading on the stock market by means of Insider Trading and Market Manipulation, and when this goes wrong, the bright mathematician opts to an even riskier money gathering operation; to gather the terrorist's money during a high stakes poker game at the Casino Royale.
"Quantum Of Solace
": The organization behind Le Chiffre is being revealed as QUANTUM and has insiders within top layers of the most important governments and multinationals. What at first seems a scheme to topple governments for reasons of oil harvesting, is later revealed as an ingenious scheme called the "Tierra Project". A project to buy up water utilities companies and to stockpile water reserves in South America. The villain, philanthropist Dominic Greene, is leading the scheme.
": The villain's scheme in "Skyfall" is of a more personal nature. An important hard disk with top secret information about NATO spies embedded in terrorist organizations across the globe is stolen. Soon a whole WikiLeaks-esque cyber warfare scandal is shaping up. What starts as a chain of deadly terrorist attacks in London -Vauxhall Cross, Whitehall and the London Underground- is in essence an ingenious scheme of revenge pointed at MI6 and "M" and is led by former MI6-spy Thiago "Silva" Rodriguez.
Three wonderful villainous schemes. I love all of them 8-X
. One of them is more related to monopolization by using counter-intelligence (Dominic Greene). The other is very personal and focused on revenge (Silva). Then another villain basically wants to succeed in his scheme to get richer himself, without all the emotions (Le Chiffre).
But what about the villain's scheme for "SPECTRE"? The short plot summary basically mentions that there is a "terrible truth" behind the organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E. . What scheme could it be? What could the terrible truth be? And, when reading the plot summary, could the villain's scheme in fact be the biggest project ever undertaken by a villain in the Daniel Craig-timeline?
As I haven't read any of the SonyLeaks, I am not spoiled about this plot part. So therefore I would love to start guessing about the villain's scheme for "SPECTRE" with my fellow forummembers :-P
. It would be nice if you haven't read the draft screenplay that has been leaked. If so, then please use spoiler tags if you already know the villain's scheme
