Quantum of Solace (2008)


James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country’s most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love. (IMDb)
The variety of gorgeously-shot exotic locales aren’t enough to spice up the repetitive action-movie plot (get a lead, follow it with a stolen vehicle, kill the guy) with yet another conveniently good-looking female accomplice and stereotypical foreign villain. Bond’s charm is replaced by a distinct coldness this time around, but as it’s only unpacked once (see the oil-covered girl in the hotel scene) it comes off as dry and dull more than deep. Consequently, it’s an insufficient substitution.
6.5/10 (Alright)


  1. Good review. Yeah. Quantum of Solace has a good start, but its as a vast difference of appeal from Casino Royale. The plot is weak, the characters aren’t that engaging, the bad guy is so-so, and we (the viewers) never get the see the Quantum organization or their ambitions (except for one scene).
