I can’t believe it has been almost 5 months since I’ve been to a movie, but the record doesn’t lie.Â George and I finally made it back to the theater last night to check out the latest Bond flick, Quantum of Solace.Â As always, there will undoubtedly be some spoilers in this review.
Quantum of Solace (yes, I think it is a ridiculous title as well) begins exactly where Casino Royale leaves off.Â I really enjoyed Casino Royale.Â Far more than any of the previous 5 or 6 Bond flicks before it.Â It was real, and gritty and visceral.Â QoS was obviously in the same vein.
The plot revolves around an evil organization that has so far remained unknown to the worlds major intelligence agencies. Â But, apparently they have “people everywhere” including M’s personal body guard.Â *insert action sequence*Â This evil org is obviously very well financed and even better at staying hidden.Â However, that doesn’t stop them from sewing the seeds of revolution and instability around the globe for financial gain.Â Bond, in is bulldog-like tenacity is on to something. Â In seeking information and/or retribution for the death of Vesper (his love in the first flick) he his on the trail of these folks.Â Unfortunately, he has a bad habit of killing everyone he comes across instead of actually pumping them for information, much to the chagrin of his bosses back in London.Â Oops.
