Daniel Craig returns as James Bond in this thrilling, action-packed adventure that picks up where Casino Royale left off. Betrayed by the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. On a nonstop quest for justice that crisscrosses the globe, Bond meets the beautiful but feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), who leads him to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless businessman and major force within the mysterious Quantum organization. When Bond uncovers a conspiracy to take control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, he must navigate a minefield of treachery, deception and murder to neutralize Greene before it’s too late!
I really like Daniel Craig as James Bond. He does a great job. I like that this James Bond character seems slightly more 'real' than previous ones. I didn't like this one quite as much as Casino Royale, it seemed to be lacking something, I just can't put my finger on what.
Sooo in addition to being an excellent Bond, Daniel Craig is also quite attractive and that never hurts. Judy Dench is also marvelous as per usual - strong female characters- yay!
There were of course gratuitous scenes of violence and chases, but thats the bond series for you.
This movie was not as good as Casino Royale when it comes to the plot. However, Daniel Craig is such a good James Bond that I'll watch any of his movies.
One of the best James Bond movies. See Casino Royale First then go watch this one. Its pretty, good you wont be disappointed.
**Spoiler alert** Minor plot details included...
Well, Daniel Craig is in fine form once again - all the sexy Bond, none of the ridiculous innuendo that earlier scripts (pre-Craig) were plagued with.
As a sequel to Casino Royale, this is a great follow up - tying up loose ends and introducing new twists that will be appreciated when I watch the two back to back next time.
However, as a standalone movie, this flick does not work. It heavily assumes you are familiar with the first movie, failing to introduce important characters and plot lines (actually, I hate when movies re-introduce, assuming that some viewers didn't see the prequel). I imagine you would be very confused if you see this movie without watching Casino Royale first. As a sequel, it fails to have a substantial plot of its own; it's very much a continuation of what came before.
I loved the character of Strawberry Fields - a nod in looks and name to all the classic Bond kittens. Kurylenko is a fierce Bond Girl like Michelle Yeoh (Tomorrow Never Dies) that *shockingly* Bond doesn't try to bed. I liked that, mostly because it supports the notion that he's still pining for Vesper. His other dalliance plays more like a stress reliever and obligate Bond moment that for me does not detract.
I highly recommend this movie as a sequel to Casino Royale. Otherwise all you'll have out of it are dreams of a shirtless Craig (its own reward, tis true).
I think Daniel Craig does the Bond character great justice!! Besides the fact that he is hot hot hot, its an action packed film that will keep your attention the entire time. Some of the stunts are unbelievable and the story line wasn't so bad either. I highly recommend watching it!!
My infatuation for Daniel Craig is beyond words. And after watching Quantum of Solace, I am more in love with him than I ever was. I had a hard time explaining why he makes an invigorating Bond as compared to others. I can't put my hands on it, but it may be his overall character. How he portrays himself as Bond is different from any previous actors (especially Brosnan!). His chiseled face and gorgeous physique also factors in to his overall appeal. Quantum of Solace is really a sequel to the previous Bond movie. It brought about different emotions of Bond - jealousy, revenge and desperation. The audience was able to see 'human' feelings and how it affected the choices he made. Despite the raw and emotional torment Bond is being portrayed as, the film still stays true to his character - he will always be a womanizer. As for the Bond girl, I personally think Olga Kurylenko was an odd pick. If you want someone to play a Brazillian chick, you want someone from the South Americas - not from the Ukraine. However, I will say that her tan and 'Brazillian' accent pulled a decent latin chick. Although the affair between Bond and Strawberry Fields was small and quick, it was important to see Craig take his shirt off. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. Whether you are going out with your girlfriends or on a date, it is well worth to see a classic that caters to the mature audience.
Mmm...mmm....mmm...ok now that I got that out of the way. This movie was absolutely excellent. This movie is filled with enough action to keep a man hooked while you sit and drool over Daniel Craig througout the movie. I actually thought this movie was up there with Casino Royale and I liked both movies equally. Bond movies keep getting better and better and they have definitely picked the best man to play Bond.
All I want to add is that his lips are so divine. I currently have a picture of Daniel Craig on my desk as we speak, no word of a lie. Just thinking about this movie makes me want to go see it again purely because I want to fantasize about Daniel Craig some more.
Just saw this over the weekend. Your man will love it because it has every kind of chase imaginable: boat, plane, car, leaping over tall buildings with a single bound... well maybe not quite but, yes, Bond is in fine superman form and he doesn't let you down.
But really, we girls don't watch the 007 for those scenes. It is all about Craig's hotness. And he did not disappoint. I am in the camp that thinks Craig is the best Bond of all. Yes, he is somewhat wrinkly but with those eyes, that body and accent, he is a very sexy beast. No extraneous chest hair, no nasty smoking habit, not too much personality getting in the way and giving us reasons to find him annoying, just sex in a suit.
Judi Dench is of course the Queen, and for once the Bond Girl (Olga Kurylenko) is less Objet d'art and more Bond's female equivalent. She made me want to be a spy.
It is an enjoyable movie but I do prefer Casino Royale, which if you haven't seen it, do it now before watching this one as it does reference it a number of times and it will make you like Bond if you didn't already.
