The latest James Bond flick 'Spectre' has finally hit theatres and it has been a mixed feeling. There's the amazing action sequences, beautiful cinematography and great acting, but the story and writing felt a bit lacking in comparison to 'Skyfall'. But what makes this one so special is that it's the first time the group, that of the same name as the film, has made an appearance since 'Diamonds Are Forever'. That's not even the only factor that separates this movie from the rest of Daniel Craig's outings as 007.

Ok, final SPOILER ALERT! Go see the movie, then come on back. Don't worry, I can wait.
Alright here we go...
James Bond's attitude
Since 'Casino Royale', Craig's performance of the british spy has been quiet, direct, and not one to crack a joke. Yet in 'Spectre', right from the get-go, he's gained a bit of a sense of humour, is more talkative, and is more confident in stepping into the field on his own. With more charm up his sleeve, Bond is sure to be more of an informant than an assassin should Craig return to the role.
A new love interest
While each Bond girl changes with every movie, Dr. Madelein Swann could be the spy's first real love since Vesper Lynd from 'Casino Royale'. This could lead to 007 making his decisions based on what happens to her, and possibly going against M's orders.
A villain who will 'die another day'...
Bond shot down the helicopter yet refused to shoot Ernst Stavro Blofeld, despite his request. But with Blofeld still alive, this means that Spectre still has its leader, one that could be rescued from prison and bring suffering to 007's life once again.
When he asks tells Bond to shoot him, he's basically saying "I have been there since the beginning. If you kill me now, this is the end. No more pain, no more loss." Since he didn't take the shot, Blofeld is probably thinking to himself about how much trouble he'll be causing for the British spy.
Pulling on strings, like a puppet, always making problems for the hero . That reminds me of a similar villain...
