This movie felt more like a Bourne movie not a bond movie. The villain was bad and did not have a great plot but I can still enjoy parts of the movie.

6.6/10

Quantumn of Solace 2008 bond film stars Daniel Craig ( The blonde Bond ) is a underrated bond film. Marc Forster is the worst director of all time. the editing is rubbish the the action scenes are one of the best in the whole series.

Quantum of Solace continues the story that was discovered in Casino Royale, but does so at the expense of the character moments and choppier directing. It's still enjoyable, but nothing like Casino Royale.

truly terrible film but it has an excuse there was a writers strike in the middle of filming and thing were done on the fly

Quantum of Solace lacks a clear, concise purpose and the villain is...why exactly? What's his plan? Why do I care about this film? A definite let down after the heights of Casino Royale.

Bond's more personal stories have never been well-loved (see also On Her Majesty's Secret Service, License to Kill), but this was needed after Casino Royale, and like those forebears it works more than it's reputation would suggest. And while It doesn't reach the heights of Craig's first film (a tall order), it doesn't try to, it's a smaller, more focused film. And it should be commended for continuing story threads from the previous film, something that hasn't really been done in Bond films since the Connery era. It also continues it's immediate predecessor by being realistic without being grim, an even more delicate act here, and in studying the relationship between the needs of a job, 007's 'blunt instrument' and the needs of the man, Bond. The writing doesn't always do this justice, but Craig's performance is strong enough to hold the story together. With a few tweaks the movie could have stood equal to Bond's best and been a more satisfactory conclusion to the character's inner journey. As it stands enough of that potential shines through that it's only mildly disappointing and by no means a failure.

Just holding Par...but's that's not bad.

Continuing the break with established formula which began with Casino Royale, this film picks up where that one left off and while it does not scale the same heights, it is not completely without merit. Daniel Craig is once again a man on a mission as he hunts down the terrrorist organization from the previous film. Olga Kurylenko is a gorgeous Bond girl with intelligence to match and French actor Mathieu Amalric (while not as creepy as Mads Mikkelsen) is sleazy enough to dislike. Perhaps in reaction to the running time of Casino Royale, this is one of the shortest Bond films in the series. It is actually OK but feels like a lesser installment and Craig's running around with mobile phone in hand is becoming slightly annoying but that is of course, no fault of his and his portrayal of Bond is once again tough, albeit serious, but more than willing to commit to the physical demands of these current films.

Sadly, it is skippable, but Part Deux is worthy of a watch for its closure after 'Casino Royale' and raises the bar in terms of action and breathtakingly shot locations. However, the pacing is all too quick and never takes a good moment to pause or reflect.

An all out action packed revenge story with some clever sequences!

It's enjoyable, and most of the action is exciting. The performances are good too. But the tone is too grey and joyless, and the editing is absolutely horrible. And I really mean horrible, it's cut so quickly it's hard to tell who's even in the scene sometimes. Overall, fine as a surface level action movie. Not very Bond-ey though.

I don't remember much from Quantum of Solace. It wasn't very good. After a certain incident occurred in Casino Royale, 007 must find the person responsible, a man named Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric) Who is doing something bad. This is a terrible villain. He has completely unclear motivation. Now guys, Casino Royale is a serious Bond film, but this is almost a throwback to the later Pierce Brosnan bond movies. It wasn't very serious, I felt as it it didn't know what it was, or what it was trying to be. Don't get me wrong, the movie had a few good scenes, but they didn't outmatch everything that was going on in the movie.
Over all it wasn't terrible, but it had very little to offer. 2/5

It's not that good but people are way too hard on it

The Blu-ray viewing this evening confirmed my initial feelings after originally seeing the film in the theater, that it's not as good as Casino Royale, but it's a fun film nonetheless, regardless of all the after the fact interweb bitching that's come along to shit on its reputation.

Not as well conceived as Casino Royale, as the villains just didn't have any real menace. The film delivers a decent amount of action, some of which could be edited a bit better, but all in all, I would give this another look on cable or as a rental.

Easily worth a look.

Loved it.
Daniel Craig has really cemented himself as Bond. It picked up from where Casino Royale left off and right from the get go, the action was fast paced. Plenty of screen time for Dame Judi too which adds to the excellent job Craig does.

I have sat through some bad Bond movies in my day...but this one was just ridiculous! Both the director and editor should never work again after putting together such a horrible movie. Ugh...this was a rough one.

The lowest offering of Craig's run with the franchise. Some impressive action scenes and Craig's committed performance can't make up for the scattered and boring plot.

Quantum of Solace was a high paced adventure, filled to the brim with explosions, gunfights, chases and good old fashioned James Bond lines. This movie is necessary to see if the audience wants key information regarding other Daniel Craig/James Bond movies.
The show overall was choppy, hard to follow and somewhat mediocre. It seemed like they needed just one or two scenes to help the plot for the other movies, and just tried to throw a whole other story around it which just collapsed. That being said if you're looking for a common action movie that won't involve any brainpower whatsoever, this is recommended.
The acting was good, they did their best to make this a good movie. The dialogue was fine, doing an alright job of tying these characters together but it wasn't a strong relationship. Scene to scene I was confused on what was going on. The movie seemed like a collage of running from place to place, fighting random bad guys, and getting revenge on irrelevant characters. The plot (as indecisive as it was) lacked depth and character.

It's good movie to watch

Another great installment of the rebooted Bond franchise. Keep it rolling!
