Re: Quantum of Solace - Grading & Discussion

Can't believe how high this has been scored here. I like how Mark Kermode summed it up on his 2008 Review I saw last night in BBC News 24
"Be honest about it, Quantum of Solace was a whole bunch of nothing. No plot, no memorable theme tune, no quotable one-liners, no discernable love interest. Not even the sight of Daniel Craig on his tight little pants"


I would totally agree. I saw this film 7 weeks ago now, and I can barely remember anything about it. I worked out I saw 20 films at the cinema in 2008, some great, some bad. But this would easily be at the bottom of the pile.

Yup. That pretty much sums it up. It wasn't a bad film by any means, just kinda vapid and void of any "Bondness."

For those who do not like it, it would be an interesting exercise to see how this rated with them as a "spy film" or an "action film" v. "Bond film".

Re: Quantum of Solace - Grading & Discussion

I gave QoS one star, and I don't think it succeeds as a Bond movie or a regular spy movie. I enjoyed The Bourne Identity, and QoS does not come near that level.
