Blunt Force Drama

Quantum of Solace

I’d like to begin by declaring that even after sitting through this latest Bond movie, I still have no idea what “quantum of solace” actually means.  Over the course of the the film you hear about an organization that I guess is called “Quantum,” but they never explain who they are or what they do.  So with that poor title out of the way, let’s move on to the rest of this movie.
Picking up moments after the end of Casino Royale, this is the story of Bond trying to unwind the mystery of this mysterious organization that was manipulating Vesper.  But is he doing his job or is he out for vengeance?  If you can’t guess, well, then I can’t help you.  His adventure sees him traveling ’round the world, and forcing even MI6 to question his motivations.
QoS starts off, in Bond tradition, with an action sequence.  I was onboard at this point, but little did I know that this is the film actually surpasses the term “action-packed.”  They literally have every kind of conceivable chase sequence forced in here.  I’m totally serious, there were so many chases and fights that I lost interest in fighting!  It doesn’t help that this film employs that annoying shaky cam that has already ruined plenty of action sequences this decade.
If you weren’t a fan of Daniel Craig as James Bond, this film is not going to change your mind.  He’s playing a Bond that’s as tough as he is stubborn, and his heartbreak from the last film isn’t making him any more likable.  I get that this is supposed to be a new character, who is still new to this, but really, I just don’t care for this guy.  He has no charm, no wit.  The rest of the cast is fine, if you hadn’t already guessed my favorite character in this new continuity is that CIA agent guy who gave Bond the money in the first film.  Diving Bell guy is an OK villain, but there’s not much to him.  Ultimately not very memorable.  Hitman lady certainly is in the movie.  Judi Dench, of course, does fine work and delivers the film’s only genuinely funny line.
Ultimately, this film failed to keep me interested.  I just don’t really like this Bond, and the more action sequences you throw at me, the less engaging those are too.  I will admit QoS did shed the worst elements of the previous movie, but this still is not what I want my 007 movies to be like.  And that is why it fails.
