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.

Go see Quantum of Solace. Not that you weren't going to anyway.

It may lack the grandeur and substance of Casino Royale, but Quantum of Solace is nevertheless a unique and thrilling Bond film.

It's a heavy-hearted film for a weary time. During a little coda in Russia it takes a deep breath and attempts a serious conclusion but merely ends up being solemn.

It's good, yes, but it won't leave you shaken or stirred.

Bottom line: it's a better Bond movie than most, but not as good as Casino Royale.

New director Marc Forster was a unusual choice. Personally, I think it was a good call.

Craig may be ill-served by the material on this occasion, but his committed performance as the spy hero remains eminently watchable.

Forster doesn't stint on the trauma of Bond, whom we see shaken and stirred during the course of a six-martini flight across the Atlantic. You love to watch him run, but you don't especially want to be him this time around.

Quantum of Solace reminds us that James Bond may be one cold cat, but he had to sacrifice a lot to get that cold.

Where did the great hero go, the one from Sean Connery in Goldfinger to Daniel Craig himself in Casino Royale, the elegant killer spy who spews memorable lines, his world-traveling adventures engorged with intrigue and mysterious women?

Director Marc Forster gets the action scenes right but never shapes the film as a whole. And if Craig, a talented actor, wants to be a Bond for the ages, he needs to lighten up. James Bond shouldn't be all work and no play.

This Bond for the 21st century is scarred physically and emotionally from his almost super-human efforts for country and Queen, and you believe there are layers to his psyche that will continue to define him in the movies to come.

Despite one or two forgivable gaps in logic, this is a lean and mean make-over that works.

It's not Octopussy bad -- parts of Quantum are as thrilling as any in the 22-film franchise -- but it's a huge disappointment, especially after Casino Royale renewed 007's licence to thrill.

In Quantum of Solace, 007 isn't interested in saving the world. He'll be lucky if he can save his own soul.
November 2, 2015
In choosing to define Bond through ruthless action, Forster and Craig (who really is brilliant here, delivering a muscular performance in every sense of the word) have unleashed a very dark, nihilistic streak that makes it easier to swallow his motivation

Maybe Bond is still an action figure whose default setting is beating up bad guys, pulling out a gun and running across roofs. But if boys have to be boys, it's a huge relief to know the new Bond age is confident enough to keep them conflicted about it.
