Review: Quantum of Solace

Ah, Bond is back!

Whitney and I watched this at the Stoneybrook Cinemas de Lux (in assigned seats no less!) last night. Some thoughts:

* I now have epilepsy from watching 27 cuts per seconds during each action scene
* Like the other good Bond, Daniel Craig is going bald.
* The "Bond Girl" is awesome.
* The homage to Goldfinger (dead girl, prone on the bed)
* Judi Dench reprises as M, and she's fabulous.

If you watched "Casino Royale" and wondered at its lack of falling action, wonder no more...the whole of "Quantum of Solace" is falling action. Bond is out for revenge, seeking to uncover the organization Le Chiffre was financing.

He doesn't *quite* do it, but then again, if Dr. No hadn't been so helpful, Connery and crew would've sat on S.P.E.C.T.R.E. for a few films. At least in this installment, Bond uncovers a few more bigs inside "Quantum" (whatever that is...).

It's a good film, action-packed, and full of Bond-isms. However, it's not the masterpiece that Royale was.
