5.0 out of 5 stars DAMAGED GOODS
Some reviewers and fans of the Bond films have complained that this film is a lesser effort in the series and pales in comparison to "Casino Royale". They have missed something important in their assessment of the film. When Dominic Green says to Bond that he and Camille Montez have something in common, that they are both "Damaged goods" he has clearly put before the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed Opportunity to Add to Bond Canon
The movie starts off well enough with a nice car chase sequence that employs quick-cut scenes to convey adrenaline-pumping action, but it can be difficult to follow and I have to agree with critics' description of this approach as hypercut editing. In fact, a few people left the theater after the movie starts off with its two signature action sequences utilizing this...

4.0 out of 5 stars Torrid action at the start, a little slow at the end, May 18, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Quantum of Solace (DVD)
No spoiler information here - just to say I thought the first Daniel Craig Bond was spectacular and this is a worthy follow up. The movie starts with a bang and the action is pretty much one fantastic stunt after the other, real heart-pounding stuff. But it seems as if the screen play ran out of steam at the end, kind of a wet noodle finish. But the move overall gets a B+.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Blend of Live Action and CGI, July 1, 2011
By 
This is not a plot/character driven movie, it is an action movie. So if you aren't particularly fond of action, you'll probably want to skip this one. The plot is incoherent, and the characters paper thin and dull. But the action, oh the action...

My beef with most current action movies is the over-reliance on cgi and the tendency for animators to completely ignore physics. When something looks real on screen and the cgi invisible, it has much more impact for me, and I think for most people. Anyone remember in Blade II when Wesley Snipes has a scene where it alternates between fantastic choreographed fighting and 100% CGIed Wesley and his opponents. The CGI ruined what could have been a great scene by making it laughably cartoonish. By contrast, The Dark Knight was such a good movie in part because Nolan made a conscious decision to use as little cgi as possible, Quantum has the same ethos.

At its core, the action sequences are real, and Craig does most of it himself (you should watch the bonus features to see one particularly bond crunching jump he did off an Italian roof). The real action is then modified by the cgi team to remove things like harnesses, guy wires, scaffolding etc. They do not change the basic action, there are no moments when Bond becomes a comic book hero doing things that no human could do. When he lands, you feel it. It is such a refreshing movie in that way and allows the viewer to enter the world.

So if you are like me, and are tired of cgi excess but still like a good action movie, you should watch this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only Craig rises above film's pedestrian script and cinematography, May 21, 2009
By 
This review is from: Quantum of Solace (DVD)
Unfortunately, even the superb acting talents of Daniel Craig can't save Quantum of Solace from a pedestrian script and a flash editing style that makes the action scenes incomprehensibly difficult to follow most of the time. While flash editing has been used effectively before many times, it usually isn't combined with fast moving and deliberately over-shaky hand held camera work, and for good reason. Rather than impress, the action scenes in Quantum of Solace simply disorient the viewer. I found myself fast forwarding through the action scenes, the first time I've ever done that in a James Bond film. Rent it once to watch Craig's performance. Buy it only if it's important for you to have a complete set of Bond films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD, February 21, 2014

This review is from: Quantum of Solace (DVD)
One of the best James Bond movies...... without SC. Forster does a surprisingly excellent job creating a no frills revenge story under the guise of a Bond film. Beautiful women, death-defying stunts, exotic locales, and world-dominating villains.

Daniel Craig as James Bond is interesting. His portrayal of the character show how dangerous Bond can be, and not only with women.

This movie is very exciting, and if you take your eyes off of the screen, you will loose where you are at before. But it is exciting and very long. Jim IN Ohio.
