What I get from this story is that Bond doesnít care about saving people other than his boss (and BTW, he doesn't actually manage to save anyone in the movie), MI6 is endangering the world more than itís actually protecting it, and M, who would be completely unlikeable if she werenít played by Judi Dench, puts MI6 above everything and is ready to sacrifice anyoneís life, except her own.
How odd given that both Bond and M make it clear that they go off on their own to Skyfall because too many other people are dying. They basically paint big targets on themselves then go off to a remote locatiion precisely in order to protect others.
