Re: Quantum of Solace - Grading & Discussion

I just got back from seeing "Quantum of Solace" and I enjoyed it immensely. Not as much as I enjoyed Craig's first go in "Casino Royale".... but it was still worth seeing.

There were a few little burps and things that bugged me. For one, if Fields was an office worker of sorts, then why send her into the field to bring in Bond whom they believe has gone rogue?

As a bad guy... Dominic Greene was only okay. He didn't seem to have enough malevolence to him for a villain worth fearing.

Now... what I liked were the little touches. Craig seemed to convey the little nuances in facial expression. The touch of seeing Vesper's necklace left in the snow may have been obvious, but I still liked it as an indication that Bond was ready to move on, finally. Closing the film with the traditional Bond theme and iris effect... man I was a bit worried we wouldn't see it.!

I'm sure there's more I'm not thinking of at the moment, and after reading through the thread I will. But I liked the movie and will definitely get it on DVD when it comes out.
