Go see Quantum of Solace. Not that you weren't going to anyway.
November 17, 2011
Much has been made of the absence of Bond's signature quips, but there's something else that's absent: interest.
November 20, 2008
Meaner, leaner and faster than ever, the new-fashioned, down-to-earth Bond movie might have a typically tangled plot and Daniel Craig scowling a tad too much, but the Bourne-inspired action is sensational.
November 20, 2008
This Bond is also a bit of a jerk, taking what he wants when he wants it and acting on an instinct that leaves little room for moral debate. Seen in this light, Craig is the perfect storm of Bondian class and mayhem.
November 17, 2008
It's ironic: After all these years of surviving everything that has been thrown at him, James Bond is finally being undone by his own team.
November 14, 2008
Quantum of Solace prompts the question: Is revenge the only possible motive for large-scale movie heroism these days?
November 14, 2008
Quantum of Solace is a model of mediocrity, even though Daniel Craig gives his all to a production that doesn't deserve him.
November 14, 2008
The Quantum of Solace filmmakers have produced a super-serious, often visually incoherent travelogue of revenge and trumped-up angst.
November 14, 2008
Forster, a director of upscale tearjerkers, has no feel for action sequences. The big chases, of which there are several, could all be replaced with a title card reading, 'Insert action here'.
November 14, 2008
Quantum of Solace is best when director Marc Forster allows his star the latitude to explore emotions that, until Craig stepped into the shoes of the character, we didn't know Bond had.
November 14, 2008
This is the least satisfying production since The Living Daylights.
November 14, 2008
Quantum -- the 22d 'official' Bond picture, 24th including the rogue Bonds -- is never less than engaging.
November 14, 2008
In the end it's all too fast and too furious -- and far too obsessed with exercising its license to thrill.
November 14, 2008
Revenge is a dish best served with bullets, high explosives and giant rolling flameballs. In Quantum of Solace, James Bond orders the revenge buffet, deluxe.
November 14, 2008
Quantum of Solace never really engages you in the mechanical but transporting way the best Bond movies do.
November 14, 2008
If you held up your thumb over Daniel Craig's face and took in the mayhem around him, you'd think you were watching The Bourne Simulation rather than the 22nd (and shortest-ever) ode to Ian Fleming's suave government killer.
November 14, 2008
With [this] too-shaken sequel, the Bond market experiences a dip.
November 14, 2008
Mr. White ultimately leads Bond to one Mr. Slate, who in turn leads him to a Mr. Greene. That's right: The global conspiracy this time around isn't SPECTRE, but some rogue wing of the United Colors of Benetton.
November 14, 2008
The problems can be traced to a screenplay that is stuffed with internecine plot points and shades-of-gray complexities, but little else: no character-sharpening details and none of the wit and charm that buoyed Casino Royale.
November 14, 2008
Frankly, Quantum of Solace is just one exasperated dressing down away from being Lethal Weapon 9.
