Quantum starts with the end of Casino Royale. Bond shot Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) at the end of that film and takes him to Italy. MI6 wants to know what organization he works for, but it turns out Mr. White’s group has set a trap. Of course this leads to Bond’s next adventure trying to figure out who was behind Mr. White. Bond has a personal score to settle as well because Mr. White killed his lover Vesper in Casino Royale. That leads Bond to Camille Montes (Olga Kurylenko) and her lover the environmentalist Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric) and a complicated story of betrayal and revenge involving a Bolivian General Medrano (Joaquin Cosio). It turns out Greene is part of White’s group. In the end, the story turns out to be as much about Camille as Bond.
Here’s the problem with the story. Bond’s chase across the world adds nothing to who exactly Mr. White worked for. All the viewer learns is that it is a powerful group with international pull. In fact it wouldn’t be until Spectre that this whole thing would be resolved. Instead the story ends up focusing upon control of natural resources, but it’s not the one everyone in the film thinks it is. It also becomes about Camille’s revenge for the death of her father. Then at the very end Bond gets back to Vesper. If the writers had dropped the beginning and Mr. White, these problems would have never come up.
Otherwise, this is another great Craig-Bond film. The action is good. The audience gets misdirected about what exactly Mr. Greene is doing. The problems with the story however are a big distraction.
Second, I regret my first impression. I was concerned he would be a timothy dalton or god forbid Lazenby.... Both of whom were cads of the worst kind - impossible to watch, sophomoric, utterly lame. Craig has delightfully alleviated my concerns. I am surprisingly enamored with him as Bond. I don't know who could replace him at present. I'm fond of Craig's Bond. Thank you may I have another.
Third, I also appreciate that the franchise is growing up a bit. Female characters have some substance. Dame Judy as M - greatness. Stories have a little more substance and pluck.
Good action adventure with not so many lines you need closed caption if hearing impaired. You get the gist no matter what. It's still pretty clear who the baddies are. Beautiful scenery. Dramatic sequences.
Modern Bond. Good prevails. Everyone can sleep soundly.
The storyline itself is suspenseful.
The plot starts out with a discovery of treachery within the British Secret Service ranks. Also, there is some very poignant points of discord between Bond and M, M and her bosses, her bosses and the United States. Luckily all is resolved without catastrophe, and this has a somewhat happy ending. Thank you.
Never did care for the title--I think "Solace" would have been enough. I also think that the character of Strawberry Fields is wasted and unnecessary. Within an hour of meeting Bond at the airport, she's sleeping with him? And then she's drenched in oil a la Goldfinger? That part doesn't work for me. The other female character was much stronger.
Really liked the fact that much of the movie is South America. Good use of locations.
Will definitely see this again!

The Blu Ray itself is of a high standard both in picture and sound. If you’re a fan of the movie then you can’t go wrong as the presentation and menus are top notch as you’d come to expect.
The plots are always the same; beautiful women, bad guys, good guys and a lot of action.
