Quantum of Solace

Quantum of Solace
Bond film # 22; PG-13
Director: Marc Forster Cast: Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric, Judi Dench

Daniel Craig is a new kind of James Bond. He's not as smooth and upper-class as previous Bonds, but we like him. Most of the traditional Bond gadgets are gone and we are left with James Bond as a ruthless killing-machine, sort of like a British Jack Bauer. We like him and Jack. Quatum of Solace is a continuation of the story line in Casino Royale and moves at a break-neck pace. Bond is considered a rogue agent bent on revenge by M (Judi Dench) and she is trying to get him out of the field. Our only complaint is perhaps too great a role for M, although I guess if you have Dame Judi Dench playing M you are obligated to give her a larger role. Another great addition to the James Bond collection.
