Quantum Of Solace (2008)

[an action packed Bond movie]

Quantum Of Solace (2008)
IMDB- 6.7
Rottentomatoes- 64%
RJG Rating- 70

James Bond investigates the shady organization ,by the name of Quantum.

Starring -Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko
Director- Marc Forster

Daniel Craig continues his fabulous performance as James Bond.On his second movie as Bond ,Daniel gives his character more of the trademark egoistical charm and elegant one liners.Olga takes up the mantle of Bond girl in Quantum.Like Eva Green ,in the previous movie ,she gives a good performance.But Quantum like Casino fails to bring about a powerful villain.The villain ,Greene ,played by Mathieu Amalric , falls into the zone of a typical villain and doesnt offer much.

The story for Quantum OS takes a backseat throughout the duration of the movie.While it is a good spy story ,it isnt really spectacular nor deep.The main problem is that its hard to concentrate on the plot when you have long action sequences taking place every 5-10min.These action sequences are quite good and intense but after a while it starts to overshadow the story and might cause you to lose focus on the thin plot.

Direction by Marc Forster is good ,but doesnt come upto Casino's Martin Campbell.Marc focuses more on action than give importance to the story.But on the positive side ,QOS doesnt get dull at any point.The excellent cinematography carries the, long but edge of seat,action sequences very neatly.

Overall ,Quantum doesnt match upto its predecessor ,but Daniel Craig & the action sequences make it worth your time.

Acting- 4/5
Story- 3/5
Direction- 3.5/5
Action- 4.5/5
