David J's Review of Quantum of Solace
Quantum of Solace(2008)
Bond returns with the follow-up to the masterful [i]Casino Royale[/i].
First of all, the film is not as polished as [i]Casino Royale[/i], and there is a distinct lack of humour that is something of a 007 trademark.
However, this is not necessarily a bad thing as [i]Quantum Of Solace[/i] does not even pretend to try and trump Daniel Craig's first outing as Bond.
In fact it is better in some ways, with more balls-out action and less chit chat, with a more morose and focused edge.
[i]Casino Royale[/i] may still be the daddy, but this is still something of an above average effort compared to more recent 007 films.
It was still well worth the wait, that's for sure!
