I don't understand why people hate Quantum of Solace so much. I thought it was plenty exciting. It had everything I want from a James Bond movie: things blew up, cars crashed, and James Bond shot up all the bad guys. Seriously, how much can you nitpick that?
QoS is much better on a second viewing but it needed to explain the plot a little more and also ir didn't help that CR was the part of a interconnected trilogy of movies but from what I heard they changed stuff from the original plan when making QoS.
