Re: Quantum of Solace - Grading & Discussion

Meh... After the excellent Casino Royale this comes as a bit of a disappointment. A decent Bourne-like action movie, but lacking in atmosphere and the spy angle. What was up with the editing of this film by the way? I couldn't make heads or tails of some of the action sequences. Unfortunately this director subscribes to the idea that the more cuts and shaky cam shots you add to action scenes, the more spectacular they get. While Daniel Craig was ok and Judi Dench a pleasure as always, Quantum of Solace could have used a striking Bond-villain!

Feels like an entertaining but fairly shallow epilogue to Casino Royale, and I hope they make a better effort next time. Terrible theme song.
