From the beginning of the first novels written by Ian Fleming, he is said to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, because of his contribution to literature and film by creating great novels and creating on of the most well known names in films. The adventure began in the early fifties when Ian Lancaster Fleming created the story Casino Royale on his Jamaican property called Goldeneye.1 Fleming transformed popular detective and spy/espionage from the dark, through the eye of secret agent 007.

By utilizing the most technologically advanced spy equipment and specially designed vehicles that can withstand the most torturous conditions, he has to foil the plot of the villain from taking over the world. By using his wit and charm with the ladies, he also discovers valuable information, keeping him one step ahead.

Real spies don’t have invisible cars, do such extravagant stunts and put their lives in such danger. Real spies do most of their work sitting at a desk doing research. James Bond films exaggerate all the life threatening duties that sometimes come with being a spy. "I would not really call them spoofs or parodies. More definable as just a bit over the top," say Luke, an avid James Bond discussion board member. "It’s what is possible, but not plausible. Of course, there

mentioning is the James Bond spy thriller Casino Royale (released in 2006). Ian Fleming (the creator of the fictional character James Bond) moulded Bond’s character after his own life to some extent.
