Daniel Craig returns as Ian Fleming's most famous creation in QUANTUM OF SOLACE, the first film in the James Bond series to follow directly on from the previous entry. Continuing where CASINO ROYALE concluded, QUANTUM OF SOLACE finds Bond on a perilous mission to uncover the truth behind the betrayal of his beloved Vesper, while keeping one step ahead of M (Judi Dench – MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE), the CIA and a shadowy organisation fronted by the diabolical Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric – THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY, MARIE ANTOINETTE).
Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright – BASQUAIT, Oliver Stone's W) and the dubious Rene Mathis (Giancarlo Giannini – BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA, SEVEN BEAUTIES) also return for this high octane sequel directed by internationally-renowned German filmmaker Marc Forster (THE KITE RUNNER, FINDING NEVERLAND). Though QUANTUM OF SOLACE takes its gritty and uncompromising lead from CASINO ROYALE, many of the series' hallmark ingredients are present, including a bevy of beautiful women which includes Gemma Arterton (ST. TRINIANS, ROCKNROLLA) and Olga Kurylenko (LE SERPENT, HITMAN), and a post-modern music score from series veteran David Arnold.

This has been panned by critics, but it was full of plenty of outrageous Bond stunts, and Bond plots are never exceptional (I've seen them all except Skyfall), so I thought it was about average for a Bond film. I always like Felix Leiter as a character, and the movie had the Bond as a rogue element that works well in many Bond films. The ending isn't so strong, but the movie is fine, and you know what you get with Bond films. If you like Bond, this will entertain you.
