Quantum of Solace Movie Review

A few days ago I explored my bond-age fetish.

I've always enjoyed the Bond movies. They aren't epic films by any means but they are usually entertaining. I have fond memories of watching them with my Dad and blushing with embarrassment as the sultry teasing title sequences seemed to last an hour. There's nothing like silhouette breasts as my first experience to the female body.

So after the disappointment that was Die Another Day, the series needed a reboot. Casino Royale, with Daniel Craig as James Bond came out two years ago. It was a step in the right direction. It was more realistic and had a plot that was somewhat comprehensible. It was a great movie, with the exception of the overly long final 40 minutes.

Now Quantum of Solace starts minutes after the end of Casino Royale. James Bond is trying to find the reasons behind Vesper Lynd's death. When it comes to action, this is the movie to watch. In fact, the action is so big, that during scenes of dialogue the movie gets a little boring. Back to the action; Solace has a car chase, a plane chase, a boat chase, and a foot chase. The only chases left out are a submarine chase and a Shriner car chase. Maybe they're saving those for the next Bond. The foot chase is sadly not on par with Royale's foot chase, it left me wanting.

Sadly it seems that the action has been Bourne'd. During the foot chase and fight scenes, the camera cuts repeatedly to the point where you don't know who is who (making Moulin Rouge look calm). Actually the Bourne Influence (sure to be a title in the next movie) is very prevalent in Quantum. Particularly when it comes to a lack of story. This is the main flaw with Quantum. Though it starts off as as a vengeance story for his dead girlfriend, Bond goes after some random French villain who is an activist all about global warming. Makes sense right? I'm not gonna lie, seeing 007 stick it to the annoying global warming weasel made me happy. Anyways, like I said: Lack of story. Not that Bond has ever been confused with Les Miserables, but it doesn't use the potential that Casino Royale started.

On the plus side, the brunette bond girl is the hottest I have seen in years. I cannot tell you enough how gorgeous she is.

Daniel Craig is great as a tough Bond. Though you can't help but feel bad for him because his face resemble meatloaf (the food, not the singer) the whole time. I don't think he has a chance the entire movie to put on a band-aid and Neosporin on his wounds. But when you're a super-spy who needs to?

Does anyone else think that James Bond and Jack Bauer should be in a movie together?

All in all, it's a very entertaining ride and a worthy Bond film. Just don't expect a great plot.

Oh yeah, and the main song sucks.

Three stars, shaken not stirred.
