Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions.

User Review

Something is not quite right with this latest Bond offering

Rating: 6/10

This film is about James Bond cracking down a multi-national
corporation that works with dictators to get a share of precious
natural resources.

"Quantum Of Solace" has an impressive opening sequence. It has high
speed car chases with lots of collision and gunshots. The ultra short
scenes (all under one second each) and the shaky camera gives urgency
and thrill, but it is so hard to actually work out what is happening.

There is a lot of action and adrenaline in the film, but the plot seems
not to have a focus. Nor does it make sense either, as it feels like an
all-action-no-information film. All Bond does is to run around the
globe after his target, and viewers are left to wonder how he made it.
I don't find myself caring for the plot or the characters. I don't know
why this happens, but something is not right with the film and I don't
know what.
