With a budget of $230 million dollars, I had very high expectations for Quantum of Solace, the 22nd James Bond movie. I was originally skeptical about the choice of Daniel Craig, but Casino Royale, which absolutely rocked, allayed those fears.
So, here I was, eagerly anticipating the latest Bond installment…and I really didn’t like it at all. The best way to describe it would be to say the movie had a theme, but no plot. Don’t get me wrong, the action was great, the effects were fantastic….but I was disappointed. It started off with a crappy intro, and didn’t really get much better.
So, is Quantum of Solace worth seeing? Absolutely. Is it the best Bond movie since Goldfinger? Not even close. I’ve seen it once, and that will be enough for me.
