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.

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.
Kirk Baird

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.

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.

If the plot confuses, just sit back and enjoy the thrilling set pieces.

What's left is plenty of well-staged action from Italy to Haiti to South America and beyond. It is expensively produced -- all the money shows.

Quantum of Solace is energetic enough and muscular enough to make you walk a little taller, a little more confidently, on your way back through the theater parking lot. But it's not a film that will stay with you much past that.

Quantum is still a very good Bond movie (if not quite a match for Casino, which was a great one).
Ian Bunting

Mostly impressive performances, then, and while undeniably thrilling for the most part, Quantum of Solace just lacks the depth and emotion of its predecessor.

Even dialogue scenes are paced like high-octane setpieces. There's very little downtime in this tale.
