Critic Reviews for Quantum of Solace
Kurylenko is certainly gorgeous, but can't match Craig as a thespian, and the necessary chemistry between them is merely mundane.
If they want to keep making movies like this with Daniel Craig as a British secret agent, I think they should at least change his name to something besides Bond.
It surpasses its predecessor in almost every way and delivers the best Bond film in over a decade.
It may lack the grandeur and substance of Casino Royale, but Quantum of Solace is nevertheless a unique and thrilling Bond film.
Audience Reviews for Quantum of Solace
I may be one of the few but i like Daniel Craig as Bond. I think they have done a good job so far keeping the throttle all the way on high and keep the explosions coming. Its a standard Bond fare which has to be taken in a very much reboot fashion over just continuing the 007 movies from before.
Despite being an obvious step down from the incredible Casino Royale, this is still one of the better Bond films thanks to Daniel Craig's continued reinvention of the role and some truly riveting action sequences. The plot is a little confusing, but enjoyable as a revenge thriller. Olga is a fantastic change of pace for the typical Bond girl and gets Bond to show continued growth as a more emotional character. After this film and Casino Royale, we understand why Bond is the way he is later on in his life. Despite some choppy editing and shaky cam, this film is very nice to look at as most Bond films are. Overall, it's a kick ass action film and a solid Bond outing for Craig and company. I like the more mature and focused Bond that Craig and the filmmakers have come up with.
