The latest Bond flick had lots of thrills & spills but non of the finasse of its predecessors. No gadgets, a very brief appearance of the new Aston Martin and a very rough & violent Bond are the ingredients that make this movie.
Daniel Craig was great. Intense. Brooding. He had really nice suits too! Ha ha … but it just doesn’t feel at all like a Bond movie and that’s my biggest complaint. If it were marketed as just an actioner I would give it a much higher rating but not as a Bond movie. I really hate the direction that the franchise is taking cos’ it’s just not James Bond anymore.
I loved the gritty way the movie was shot though and the action sequences were exciting but unfortunately the plot is pointless.
But whatever it is; “Quantum of Solace” is still a worthwhile watch at the cinemas. It’s not a must watch so if you have nothing to do on the weekend or weeknight give it a spin.
