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

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

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.

It surpasses its predecessor in almost every way and delivers the best Bond film in over a decade.
November 2, 2015
Go see Quantum of Solace. Not that you weren't going to anyway.
November 2, 2015
It may lack the grandeur and substance of Casino Royale, but Quantum of Solace is nevertheless a unique and thrilling Bond film.
November 2, 2015
It's good, yes, but it won't leave you shaken or stirred.
November 2, 2015
Bottom line: it's a better Bond movie than most, but not as good as Casino Royale.
November 2, 2015
New director Marc Forster was a unusual choice. Personally, I think it was a good call.
November 2, 2015
Craig may be ill-served by the material on this occasion, but his committed performance as the spy hero remains eminently watchable.
November 2, 2015
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.
November 2, 2015
Quantum of Solace reminds us that James Bond may be one cold cat, but he had to sacrifice a lot to get that cold.
November 2, 2015
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.
November 2, 2015
Despite one or two forgivable gaps in logic, this is a lean and mean make-over that works.
November 2, 2015
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
November 2, 2015
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.
November 2, 2015
If the plot confuses, just sit back and enjoy the thrilling set pieces.
November 2, 2015
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.
