I'm still not sure if I like this more rugged Bond, but this movie kept my attention with the action and plot twists.

I've never been a Bond fan - which is kind of sacrilegious to say as a Brit named James - but the plots are starting to circle the toilet bowl. As a piece of history, Bond films seem to be a time capsule of how the British empire sees itself, preventing world domination in the 1960s and 1970s, sorting out the Russians in the 1980s (because the stupid Americans were too vulgar to figure it out), disappearing for 10 years with no explanation, and now back with confused self-confidence and working …

Great action, but horrible villain. His evil plan was a moderate increase in water prices??

Dvd cover
Ian Fleming's James Bond 007, the iconic movie super-agent has had many incarnations. In the character's 22nd feature film, is also the first direct sequel to a previous Bond film. "QUANTUM OF SOLACE" has Marc Forster (Monster's Ball) taking over the director's chair from Martin Campbell (who had directed two other Bond films) and received mixed reactions from critics. After the phenomenal "Casino Royale", expectations were extremely high and audiences were expecting …

Any more James Bond movies like this  and the franchise is dead.  Here's what went wrong for me:   Everyone in it is hard. No softies. It's like a conversation where everyone is screaming. You need contrast to make a good movie. Judy Dench is a fine actress but, like everyone else in this movie, she's made of steel.  What  ever  happened to James Bond's witticisms, puns, and other verbal play?    I watched 20 minutes of this and turned to making …

Not as good as the first but still an amazing entry in the long running series....
This direct sequel to the smash hit, critically acclaimed Casino Royale is more brutal and action packed than the first and it relies on explosives action sequences and out of control chases to sometimes fill in the gaps of the adequately made plot and story. But is this second installment in the reboot franchise bad? No way!! Is it a great sequel? Not really, but it is a good one at that.            Quantum of Solace was somewhat of a let down in the character …

Don't give a license to kill to a man on a vengeance quest. A wounded Bond, stripped of his cool detachment, is a very dangerous agent. Bond fell in love in Casino Royale - the kinetic and intense reboot of the series - and his lover betrayed him and then died violently while he watched helplessly. He needs revenge and closure. There's no quantum of solace for a mourning and betrayed Bond.     The task of this film, it seems, is to bring Daniel Craig's headstrong and impetuous …

Bond on the run...it sounds like a mid-sixties spy spoof, yet this is the new darker Bond being chased by the good guys as he tries to even the score left unsettled in Casino Royale [Blu-ray].     The secret of the Bond films has always been found in the Bond girls and the chase. Here the girls take a break while James goes rogue and even M can't bring him in from the cold. But the chase, through parts of the world never seen in the series, offers spectacular action and awe-inspiring …

I'm pretty shaken I know that.
I am a huge Bond fan.      This movie, a follow up to the amazing Casino Royale was to open on my birthday, and I was all set and raring to go up north and catch this movie on the Ultrascreen for a great Bond time.      To say my birthday was a happy affair would be an undertatement.      There have been bad Bond movies.  Moonraker for it's sillyness, Octopussy for it's overly complex storyline, The World is Not Enough for …
review by . August 16, 2009
I just wanted to watch an action movie. I didn't want anything serious. No puzzles to solve, no angst-ridden protagonists attempting to find reason in the Universe.     "Quantum of Solace" filled the bill perectly.     It is all action. Non-stop action.     Whatever attempt there is to tell a story never intrudes on the action.     James Bond, played to perfection by Daniel Craig, is strong, always coiled, headstrong …

The second film in the re-vamped James Bond franchise, QUANTUM OF SOLACE begins almost immediately where CASINO ROYALE ended. In an adrenaline-fueled car chase, Bond (Daniel Craig) races away from a group of villains to a secret location where he retrieves his cargo from the trunk: the mysterious Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) who was last seen at the end of CASINO ROYALE. Distraught over the death of his beloved Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), Bond wants information about who was responsible for her death …

Quantum of Solace Poster
This past weekend [Blu-ray update at the bottom], I went to see Quantum of Solace, the direct sequel to the rebooted Bond franchise's Casino Royale. Now I thought this movie was great; I'm not going to go ahead and say that it's the best Bond flick ever (That award in my mind goes to On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Casino Royale), but it did an amazing job pulling off a really good direct sequel, something that had never been done in the Bond franchise before.    Quantum …

Once again, Daniel Craig gives a masterful performance as bond. By this film, the Bond character has become very dark, but Craig's performance is subtle enough to human exude some human emotion at the right time. Furthermore, the new "bond girl," Olga Kurylenko as Camille, is probably one of the strongest bond girls in the series.    My main concern with this film is the plot. First, unlike most other Bond films, it is a direct sequel to the previous film ("Casino Royale"). I …

Having watched all the Bond movies, especially the ones with Sean (the one and only) Connery, I'd have to say that as far as Bond movies go, this one is a non-Bond.  While I understand the need to change things up a little and freshen the franchise, there are some things you just don't mess with.   Broken bonds include:   1.   Gadgets – there aren't any – it's completely Q-less 2.   Car – pedestrian 3.   Puns – one weak one (blink and you'll miss it) …
review by . March 27, 2009
This is an interesting evolution of the Bond franchise. This film really moves more toward the Bourne Identity series, or could be considered an interesting branch on the Bond tree. There's a bit more intelligent intrigue, more political in this Bond than previous efforts. There's still a ton of action, the chases are simply awesome and exciting. As always, production values are top notch. The editing and tension build is outstanding. This is what action films are all about.     The …

I'm a latecomer to the Bond franchise. Until 2003 I hadn't actually seen more than a couple. Thankfully the library in Palm Springs, where I was living at the time, had all the movies on VHS, so I was able to catch up. Then a few months ago Amazon had Ultimate DVD collections on sale for only $25 - $30 each, so I ended up owning all the Bond films. I'm not a huge fan by any means, but I like them and find them to be an enjoyable way to pass the time. Plus I hugely enjoyed Casino Royale, so all of …
