Warning Quantum Of Solace - Official Thread

Hey guys.

Someone asked today in another thread why there was no official "Quantum Of Solace" thread. I had never noticed this glaring oversight before, and so decided to create the thread myself (albeit, I'm cutting it a little close by doing so on opening day stick out tongue ).

Feel free to post your reviews of/thoughts on "QOS" here. I myself will hopefully be seeing the film tonight, and can't wait big grin ; I know it'd be wrong of me to feel a little smug satisfaction that the UK are getting to see this a full two weeks ahead of the States, but ... I can't help it, sorry stick out tongue . After all, you guys get across the pond get to see pretty much every other major film before us Brits do ...

Let's hope that "QOS" can maintain the high standards set by "Casino Royale"; well, we'll know in just a few hours ...

Ahnold

Apparently the script is rubbish and nowhere near as good as Casino Royale, most reviews have been disappointed by the film... and also the two Bond girls are nothing memorable like Eva Green's Bond girl...

Be seeing it next week sometime.

after reading the first line I thought the movie sucked... after reading your claim the new girls are nothing as memorable as Vesper I realised we're definitly on another page...

It's ok.

Very downbeat for a Bond film; very sllick but felt a bit disjointed; the girls are fine but you don't care that much for the General's subplot, and in the end you feel that not very much has been gained by the end of the film, which is fine for making more sequels but hurts QoS as its own product.

So... yeah, it was ok. CR was betetr though.

Just saw it today was very impressed by it not as good as Casino Royale imo but still I would call it one of the better Bond movies in the series. Craig was awesome as Bond and imo is up there with Connery, hopefully though in the next movie they have him turn on the charm more as in this movie he was very downbeat but that was for a reason which was all fine and all. Villain was very impressed by he was imposing and the final fight between him and Bond was great. The Bond girls I did not mind too much, Agent Fields I thought was a good tribute to the more older Bond girls in particular Diana Rigg. But alas she did not have that much screentime. Talking of tributes watch out for one later on in the movie you will know when you will see it and its quite clever. The other Bond girl was alright and made a good opposite for Bond in this movie with her whole revenge plot, not as good as Eva Green as Vesper but still okay. It seems they have set in motion some hints at the movies going back to what people expect a typical Bond movie should be and I think they can easily make many sequels to this movie with the potential they have with the organisation mentioned in this movie.

Overall it was very good imo not as good as CR but still one of the best movies to enter the Bond series I give it...

8/10

I like the actresses that are playing the Bond girls, though the Olga one I hope has brushed up on her acting skills because she isn't the most strong of actresses from the two main films I've seen her in. Gemma whatshername is fine from everything I've seen her in.

Don't look as memorable as Vesper though from everything I've seen. Vesper was just perfect.

Well ... I had a feeling I'd be saying this (based the film's advance word), but sadly, "Quantum Of Solace" doesn't quite live up its predecessor. But, when you consider that "Casino Royale" was probably the best Bond film to come out in ten years, that isn't necessarily a huge failing.

Overall, I very much enjoyed "QOS" - despite being surprisingly dark and downbeat in places, I still felt it was a very strong and worthy addition to the franchise. The action scenes are fun and well-executed (though there isn't one that stands out in the same way that, say, the free running sequence in "CR" did), and I'm certainly intrigued by the still very much untapped potential of the SPECTRE-esque Quantum organisation, whom I'm fairly sure (and hopeful) will feature more prominently in subsequent Bond outings. And, while the acting on the whole is very good, I was particularly impressed by Daniel Craig's portrayal of a ruthlessly efficient, almost haunted 007; he definitely proves that "CR" wasn't just a fluke, and I feel that he could very well be the best Bond since Connery (which is no mean feat).

I suppose that "QOS" is quite an unusual film in that it's more of a conclusion to "CR" than a stand alone Bond movie in it's own right. Let's hope that Bond 23 starts to re-introduce some of the Bond elements that have (understandably) been left out since "Die Another Day" - namely Q, Moneypenny ... and some gadgets would be nice as well smile .

I don't think you will see them again at all in the bond future. I believe they have finished with all that.

Really? Did the producers say that? 'Cos "Quantum Of Solace" definitely leaves room open for the Quantum organisation to return in the future. And why not? Remember that SPECTRE featured in six of the first seven Bond movies ...

Or did you mean Q, Moneypenny, and/or the gadgets? Because I'd be extremely surprised if they've dispensed with them for good ...

I don't see why not. mild. 'Q' is a product of From Russia with Love, which is what they are trying to get back to.

There's been no room or role for them so far but they can be re-invented like anything else. Q's suitcase in FRWL was integral to the plot; they just need that sort of angle instead of it just being silly gadgets (which I agree we won;'t see, with any luck).

That's just what I read from the people who work on it, they might change their mind though.

on the other hand, they could have given a small nod to Q already in in casino royal... he thanks M for the car (I think); he could have thanked Q.
small thing though, not important

Just saw it, very nice movie, and I like Bond`s character development.

I had impresion that Dominic was just one of Quantum members, and this definately set things for sequels. Mr White escaped, didn`t he, and he was the one Bond was after.

I'm going in with low expectations and I will treat this as a third act to Casino Royale and not a whole seperate movie.
