      Quantum of Solace Reviews

      Prev Next

      Quantum of Solace might not reach the same highs as Casino Royale, but in the context of the entire James Bond franchise, it is hard to say that the film is not one of the better editions simply considering it is overall competent.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Aug 28, 2022

      Daniel Craig remains dutiful as ever, but following the franchise zenith that is Casino Royale, this should have been a lot better.

      Full Review | Oct 2, 2021

      Quantum of Solace isn't a bad film but it must be watched with the understanding that it was rushed into production to avoid a potential SAG strike.

      Casino Royale was a spectacular return to form, so it's not wholly unexpected that this follow-up has been tagged by some as one of the low points of the franchise. Nonsense.

      Starts off alright but slowly becomes less and less interesting until it suddenly ends, plus the villain is more "mildly annoying prick" than Bond's big enemy...

      It's not the first Bond film to fall back into a rut that will require the changing of the lead actor to get out of.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/10 | Nov 28, 2020

      I don't mind losing the groan-inducing puns and the gimmicky gadgets, but strip Bond down too much and he begins to resemble Jason Bourne - and I'd rather have a first-rate Bond than a second-hand Bourne.

      Quantum of Solace is how I imagined the sequel to On Her Majesty's Secret Service if it came to fruition.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jul 16, 2020

      Quantum of Solace is one of the most listless Bond films I have seen.

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Apr 6, 2020

      Quantum of Solace has style, and enough pursuit and pyrotechnics to please hard-core Bond fans. But it may disappoint those hoping for Marc Forster's distinctive imprint and a return to Casino Royale's top form.

      Bond is being further shaped into the character we've always known, and will most definitely be back to fight another day.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      Unfairly maligned in relation to its more colourful and emotive cousins of the Daniel Craig era, Quantum of Solace is actually the more cerebral and challenging piece of work.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      A plot of an unnecessarily complex development that fails miserably in something that its predecessor did very well: offer characters that seduce us. [Full Review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Sep 10, 2019

      This isn't a mindless blow-'em-up thriller, this is an intelligently crafted, superbly edited, lean, mean piece of work.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Jun 6, 2019

      While it's understandable that long-term Bond devotees may be left pining for the days when the puns were a bit more plentiful, and the punches a bit less lethal, I for one hope they don't go too far back in the other direction.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Feb 4, 2019

      The angsty, truant Bond and his sulky ways get too irritating, the pout notwithstanding.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jan 31, 2019

      Perhaps confusing the audience is what Forster meant when he said he was making an art house picture.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Nov 4, 2018

      At the end of Solace there are a couple of unhappy but typical realizations: 1) that the film only runs 106 minutes when it seemed more like 166, and 2) that it's still hard to say whether Daniel Craig moves well as an action hero.

      Full Review | Oct 30, 2018

      Somehow Marc Forster's direction sucks all the vitality out of the film. There's no thrill in the chase. With the exception of an absolutely first-rate fight sequence on scaffolding in a church under renovation, Bond is having no fun at all.

      Full Review | Aug 9, 2018

      Kurylenko is certainly gorgeous, but can't match Craig as a thespian, and the necessary chemistry between them is merely mundane.
