Quantum Of Solace : 5/10


Quantum Of Solace


31 / 10 / 2008




Trafford Centre, MANCHESTER

FILM (out of 10):



The Bond franchise was reinvented with the last outing but a little trashed in this latest episode. Rather jerky, uninspiring action set pieces in the 'pretend this is good action' category. Bond is a little more unrealistic in his dispatching of the bad guys especially in a sequence in the lift were he takes out 3 or 4 of M's men who are assigned to take bring him in. He does it in 3 seconds flat...not likely...given the men involved... result... no tension... no realism. Compare this to his more realistic, hard fought fights of the first movie. This reduces the movie to those old flicks where bullets fly and the hero doesn't get hit. The first movie took the feel of a Bourne movie whereas this movie tended to copy it somewhat. Bond says to Felix at one point, 'How long have I got?' to escape... Felix '30 seconds'... straight out of the Bourne Ultimatum. This goes for the car chase sequences and one of the fights, only in this film there is less polish and style and just too much chopping and editing. It also contains 1 or 2 sequences where it seemed the director couldn't be bothered putting in the action, especially in a scene at the Opera (did they not make enough money from the first movie?). When you think about it, no book to go by and a different director and it's no wonder the movie seems to be clutching at straws for ideas. Craig is good as well as his co-stars but the editing and direction is poor. I can wait a long time for the next Bond unlike the Casino outing which left me wanting more very soon. More could be said but this review is already longer than all the others such is my disappointment.
