Review
The recent Bond picture QUANTUM OF SOLACE has a lot of the top action, but the film is too complicated and different to the series. What really bothers me is that it's still missing Q and having a Bond villain of an environmentalist is really a bad choice. I still highly praise Daniel Craig for his performance as James Bond.

Not quite the type of a Bond film that was expected, but could have been more. To me, QUANTUM is an unwarranted addition to the Bond family and it is probably for the best.

Star rating: (3/5) Average

  1. I agree, the plot was ridiclously convoluted and it very disappointing compared to Casino Royale.
