Film Review: Quantum of Solace

Starring: Daniel Craig, Gemma Arterton, Olga Kurylenko, Judi Dench

Directed by: Marc Forster:

So on a day of Christmas shopping at the mall today, I did end up seeing a movie so I decided to see the new 007 flick “Quantum of Solace”.

Plot synopsis: “Quantum of Solace” is actually the continuing sequel from the first movie “Casino Royale”. Bond is out to seek revenge after being betrayed by Vesper Lynd, the woman he fell in love with in “Casino Royale”. Bond captures a man named Mr. White which he reveals the man who stole Bond’s casino winnings, when he was playing poker back in “Casino Royale”. M (Judy Dench) warns Bond that this mission could be dangerous and risky, but Bond ignores her and vowed to complete his mission.

Bond discovers that a man named Dominic Greene who is a member of the Quantum organization which he poses as an environmentalist who aims to take complete control over water supply in Bolivia. Bond later learns that he needs to stop Dominic Greene from taking control of the water supply, the more Bond does that, the more he gets closer and closer for finding the people who ever hired Vesper Lynd to mess with Bond’s life.

My thoughts on the movie? I would like to add this movie to one of the worst movies of 2008. Yes, this movie was that bad. I hated it. I thought “Casino Royale” was amazing but “Quantum of Solace” was laughable. The storyline was kind of interesting, but the acting, the action scenes, the filming, etc. We’re very poorly done. The action scenes were pretty silly that they reminded me of Pierce Brosnan’s 007 films. Thumbs down to “Quantum of Solace”. “Casino Royale” was an amazing movie, I loved it to death, but the 007 films have gone downhill quickly when this piece of shit came out. Definitely wait for DVD on this one.

Score for “Quantum of Solace” = * (1 star as in poor)


BREAKING NEWS: James Bond destroys box office and makes history with “Quantum of Solace”!!!

While the fall/winter season of movies slows down in the box office, things start to pick back up again when the newest 007 flick “Quantum of Solace” finally hits the theaters this weekend. “Quantum of Solace” made a whopping $70.4. It is also considered to be the very first James Bond film to be the most successful ever.

Variety Reports:


Don’t worry folks. “Twilight” will make a lot more than James Bond.

With “Twilight” coming out next weekend on Nov. 21st, mark my words, it’ll make at least $80-$100 million or even more.


Report: Roger Moore bashes the new Bond films with Daniel Craig…

A former James Bond star, Roger Moore, said he has seen the new Bond flick “Casino Royale” but he has not yet seen the new one “Quantum of Solace”. Moore says he isn’t impressed with them at all. He said he hated how the films has turned violent and graphic, he explains how that is NOT James Bond.

He says positive things about the new James Bond actor, that man is Daniel Craig. He says Daniel IS Bond. Moore just doesn’t want the new films to be so violent. The earlier James Bond flicks were violent sure but they weren’t as graphic as “Casino Royale” and “Quantum” was. The earlier Bond flicks were family friendly, the newer Bond flicks with Daniel Craig are aiming more toward the adult audience.

Roger Moore played James Bond pretty much throughout the 70’s and most of the 80’s, Moore starred in the 007 films such as “The Man With the Golden Gun”, “A View To Kill”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “Moonraker”, etc.

More on it here:


“Quantum of Solace” comes out this Friday night, don’t know if I’ll see it in theater or not. I’ll probably wait for DVD on this one, not sure. I’m more interested in seeing “Twilight” than this one though.

But as far as Roger Moore’s comments on the new films goes, I don’t agree with him. I’ve seen “Casino Royale” and the violence in that film is not as bad and graphic as he claims. Maybe he is just old and not used to today’s violent films just yet. In “Casino Royale” there is only one scene that is very graphic when James Bond is captured by badguys and he is getting violently tortured by them. That’s the only graphic scene out of the whole movie but other than that, the rest of the film isn’t that bad. The violence in the rest of “Casino Royale” is similar to the older flicks.


BREAKING NEWS: Jack White and Alicia Keys 007 “Quantum of Solace” theme song online…

Jack White and Alicia Keys 007 theme song for the “Quantum Of Solace” film is now online, the song in it’s entirety for a free listen.

Jack wrote the song and produced it. Jack is singing the lead and Alicia is just playing the piano parts and she’s singing the backup vocals to the choruses.

Listen to the song here:


My thoughts? It’s okay. Nothing mind blowing. I do love Alicia Keys and I want to hear more of her in the song, come on Jack, let her sing more than just the choruses.

Alicia Keys is a pop R&B singer, but she’s actually one of the talented ones, I quite like her music. Like I always say, I’m not a pop music guy, I’m more into progressive rock, that is my main genre but everybody listens to something else that is not their usual genre sometimes. It’s just that sometimes it does get tiring listening to loud and angry rock music all the time, that it’s good to listen to other stuff once in a while like maybe a little pop, a little country, a little blues, classical, jazz, even techno/electonica, etc. I do listen to other genres once in a while, it’s good to listen to a variety.


Report: Amy Winehouse out for “Quantum Of Solace” theme song, Alicia Keys and Jack White in…

Since Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson pulled out of writing the opening title sequence for the theme song of 007 “Quantum Of Solace”, musicians Alicia Keys and Jack White has signed a deal to collaborate on writing the theme song together.

The song is titled “Another Way to Die”, Jack wrote the song and produced it himself, will also record drums for it. Alicia will probably play piano and just sing the lead vocals.

The new highly anticipated James Bond flick “Quantum of Solace” hits theaters everywhere Nov. 7th.

Billboard reports:


Great choice for the Bond theme. I like Jack White and I like Alicia Keys too believe it or not. While I hate today’s pop music, I actually do like a very few pop singers. The pop singers I do enjoy listening to are Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and Kanye West.

But on top of that, I’m really looking forward to the new James Bond flick coming out, I will see that one too.


Report: “Quantum of Solace – The Video Game” announcement…

Not only the new James Bond flick “Quantum of Solace” is being released into a theaterical release film, it was also be released into a video game. The video game will be released sometime this fall. It will be released for both Xbox 360 and the PS3 of course. The game looks way cool and so much to fun to play. The game will be a 1st person shooting to 3rd person action.

Give this article a read about the game at IGN:


While there has been a lot of James Bond games over the years, this one is supposed to be the best one. I don’t think there has been a James Bond game made for the PS3/Xbox yet and it’s about damn time they made one!



NEW: 007 “Quantum of Solace” teaser trailer online NOW!!!!

The teaser trailer for the new James Bond 007 “Quantum of Solace” movie is here, and in my opinion, the movie looks fuckin’ BADASS! It looks much better and more action packed than “Casino Royale”. I’m so happy the Bond movies are starting over with a clean slate and improving. I mean, the last several new Bond flicks were such crap and so glad they are getting better.

MTV Movies Blog exclusively has the Bond “Quantum of Solace” trailer:


I’ll definitely be seeing it in theater.

Xbox and the PS3 are also releasing a videogame based on the film and I’ll probably get that too. I’ll be posting more information on the “Quantum of Solace” videogame soon.



BREAKING NEWS: Daniel Craig injured while filming “Quantum of Solace”…

At Pinewood Studios, while the new Bond, Daniel Craig was filming an action sequence doing his own stunts, he cut off the tip of one of his fingers. Daniel was immediately rushed to the hospital, but then returned to the studio after to continue filming, knowing that the injury wasn’t all that serious. He was taken to the hospital just for a “precaution”. Daniel was bleeding like crazy after he was injured so they felt he needed to go to the hospital for emergency treatment.

This isn’t the first time “Quantum of Solace” had an accident while filming as there were much worse accidents than this one.

More on it here:


After all the accidents “Quantum of Solace” had, it was only a matter of time that something would happen to Daniel Craig at some point.

A big movie star doing his own action stunts is very risky.

Glad Daniel is ok.
