Somewhat generic Bond film. Nothing about this movie stood out to me much in any way. It beats the older films due to better budget and improved effects, but really doesn't invent anything new.

This movie is just freaking weak to me and others.

I haven't seen Casino Royale yet, so I didn’t have the big expectations that many people did going into this movie. I wasn’t blown away, but what I saw was a decent action movie. Daniel Craig was excellent as James Bond, although he is really the only actor whose performance is worth noting. Most of the other characters are inconsequential, and the main fault of the movie is that it fails to convey a real sense of conflict, which is mainly due to the lack of a memorable villain. It could have used a more fleshed out plot and characters with more depth, but it did just enough to keep me entertained throughout its runtime.

After Casino Royale reset the franchise and breathed fresh life into the character of Bond, Quantum immediately follows it up with a well staged but overly familiar bullet-riddled car chase. Bond is then chased by men with foreign accents atop motorcycles/speedboats/jet fighters and jumps out of a plane without a parachute. Again. Female agents are once more demoted to dolly birds who hurtle into Bond's bed with such ferocious speed they threaten to break the sound barrier, only to instantaneously wind up in a body bag (as usual) and he battles a shadowy multinational organization with a hidden agenda but with a rather dreary nerd in command instead of a cat stroking cartoon character. The problem with Quantum Of Solace is it makes the mistake of making Bond go rogue; this always sounds …

James Bond (Daniel Craig) goes after businessman environmentalist Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric). bond meets Camille Montes (Olga Kurylenko) who has plans of avenging her families death. Bond asks help from René Mathis since he feels M (Dench) mistakes him for a killer. Dominic owns majority of Bolivia's water supply and forces Medrano (Joaquin Cosio) to accept a new contract that makes Greene Planet Bolivia's sole water utility company for higher rates. Themes of trust, inner demons, power and moving on were exhibited.
Action packed sequences in land, water and air from start to end. The screenplay however was all over and the antagonist just wasn't that vicious compared to its other films. You have a serious angst-ridden unappealing killing machine instead of the suave, …

Quantum of Solace, compared to Casino Royale - that stupendous franchise reboot in 2006 - is a huge disappointment. What's more, it's underwhelming. James Bond should never be underwhelming.
Unlike most, I thought this entry was pretty decent. Although it needed to slice out three-fourths of the action, replace it with plot and bump up the running time to about two hours, I wasn't pissed off at the end result. To quote Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, "Suppose that's something."
There's been much criticism about the controversial "shaky cam" cinematographic technique. The action sequences are indeed ineptly shot but they're not too hard to follow. The problem is there's so many of them that it becomes ridiculous. Apparently Michael G. Wilson/Barbara Broccoli/Marc Forster felt that …

I wish Bond would go back to the formula I have enjoyed for years. I believe fighting over water is a bullshit storyline and a far cry from the days of the cold war movies. Sean Connery!!

Just recently watch it again at a friend's house. He has a bootleg verison of it and it was in good quailty. There was a sence I didn't notice when I saw it in theaters. It was when the waitress is being raped by the guy in the room and she's crying on the bed. Do you see a shot of her vagina??, or is my mind playing tricks on me. Did anyone alse see what I saw (it's a very quick shot). I guess I'll have to wait when it's out on DVD to confirm.
