Quantum of Solace
Quantum of Solace – DVD Review
Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M interrogate Mr. White who reveals the organization which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined. Rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for intense sequences of violence and action, and some sexual content. Widescreen. Closed Captioned. Spanish dubbed and subtitled available.
“Quantum of Solace” is one of the most poorly named movies ever. I know it’s a name of a short story by Ian Fleming, but it’s still a crummy title. On the other hand it’s the only thing that’s crummy about it. Daniel Craig plays James Bond. He is sexy, he is athletic, and he is sad because his ladylove got offed in the last movie. And this movie begins at eight minutes after. The idea is that this is a new kind of James Bond, with some of the same old cast. Judy Dench still plays M, and we have Jeffery Wright as Felix Leiter. This is a new James Bond and he’s lovely. And Camille his ladylove is beautiful. This did great in the movies and is a wonderful DVD, four stars.
