Quantum of Solace

In Casino Royale, poor James was betrayed by Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), the woman he loved. Taking off immediately after that film concluded, Quantum of Solace sees Bond hunt down the shadowy organization he holds responsible for Lynd's death despite orders not to from M (Dench). He soon traces a link to Dominic Greene (Amalric), a ruthless international businessman conspiring to take control of Bolivia's water supply. 007 teams with Camille (Kurylenko) - who has her own agenda of vengeance - on a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America.

This, the 22nd Bond film, takes its name from a short story by Bond creator Ian Fleming. Director this time is Marc Forster, an intriguing choice given that his previous filmmaking repertoire consists of dramas The Kite Runner and Finding Neverland.

I hate to be a spoilsport - I was looking forward to this, after all - but the direct follow up to Casino Royale fails to capture what was satisfying about the franchise reboot. The action scenes lack clear choreography, the storyline is thin to the point of non-existent, the girls have nothing on Eva Green, and the villain is lame. Whereas Royale was one of the best Bond films, Quantum of Solace will go down as one of the more forgettable.

How Bond has Changed

James Bond movies used to be done in a style of class and tounge in the cheek sort of style. All with fast cars and laughable and enjoyable plots. Now with this movie it has become more of a drama. Sure it still has car chases and lots of action but add drama an it comes off as a bit off a mess. Revenge is what drives James Bond in this movie and revenge...

Nowhere near what was promised

I agree with some (if not most) of the other comments here. There was so much to live up to and the team didnt deliver. There were some great points to the movie but predictability and the sense of deja-vu set in for most.

Bland, James Bland

This is without a doubt the worst modern Bond so far, a franchise that has been outwitted and outgunned by the Bourne trilogy. In fact 'Quantum' is a pale pastiche of 'Ultimatum', guilty mostly of copying the latter's only major flaw, the extreme close quarter camera work that makes 90% of the action incomprehensible. At least Greengrass backed off often...

A spastic, indecipherable, unholy, and altogether unwatchable mess.

Stripped of "Royale's" humor, elegance and reinvented old-school stylishness, Quantum has little left except its plot, which is rudimentary and slightly barmy, in the line of the Roger Moore pics of the '70s and '80s.

The violence in his (Craig's) first outing, "Casino Royale," was notably intense, and while Quantum of Solace is not quite as brutal, the mood is if anything even more grim and downcast.

Quantum, thanks to a deft blend of exotic escapism and bare-bones modernism, is more than strong enough to be judged on its own. In fact, it's the perfect Bond film.

Call me old fashioned but I'd still like to see a return to the essential Bondness of old, without losing its relevance or its edge - a little more of 007's trademark levity and mischief would not go amiss.

The new picture allows hardly any flourishes of style and character in the 007 tradition, but moviegoers seeking an adrenaline rush will be well pleased.

Quantum of Solace may be explosive with images of fiery infernos, but it's convoluted and confusing, the plot playing second fiddle to its set pieces.

As with "The Dark Knight," the only real caveat is that while it's exciting and imaginative, it's not exactly anyone's idea of fun. To keep in the game, perhaps the next movie could let the hero enjoy himself a bit more.

Quantum will do. It hasn't got the wit or panache of Casino, and there's nothing here that compares to that film's fuel-tanker-on-the-runway set piece, but this is still a solid and entertaining entry to the canon.
