View Full Version : Quantum of Solace

I thought it was a good movie, but not quite as good as Casino Royale. This time the overall "bad guy scheme" was a bit fuzzy and was a bit of an after thought. I never got the impression that Greene was much of a threat to Bond. I thought it was more of a movie about Bond's standing in MI6 than anything else. The action was good, again it is refreshing to see a James Bond that can actually kill a bad guy in hand to hand combat. Not just throw a punch and then shoot him with his Walter PPK. I really like Daniel Craig in the role. The whole scene at the opera was brilliant right down to Bond's smuggness when he spoke up on the mike to the other bad guys sitting in the audience and then the stare down with Greene and his thugs when they met in the hallway right after. Classic.
With the ending I'm guessing the overall arc of Craig's turn at the character will be his on going battle against Quantum. I think he's signed on for 3 more movies. I'm looking forward to the next one. It should be a fresh start with a new story within the Quantum story arc.

If it compares to Jack White's theme song for the movie, I will go see it.

The Star Trek trailer that is attached to QoS is pretty cool. It looks like JJ Abrams did a good job with it. I can't wait.

I didn't really like Casino Royale...but that's me. I've been meaning to go and see this one, but haven't made it yet.

The theme song is horrible,
As for the movie i agree that it was good, certainly not as good as Casino Royale. It didn't seem very Bond like.
I like the Bourne movies, but this was just another one of those. Bond didn't have his cool gadgets, he didn't come off as charming or suave, and surprisingly there wasn't much action in terms of love interests. I guess because it takes place right after Casino Royale so it's supposed to differ from the other Bond movies a lot in that aspect. But it still didn't really seem like Bond.

I enjoyed the movie. Got to love Strawberry Fields, Yum Yum. I agree with you guys that it wasn't as good as Casino Royale but it passes. They packed a lot into this movie, car chase, plane fight, foot chases, a little bit of everything for everybody. I really like this new series of Bond films. I hope they keep Craig for a while.
Here's Stawberry Fields at her best. (Sort of spoilerish)
