007: Quantum of Solace Game Review
Movies:James Bond S2 - Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace)
In the film, Bond seeks revenge for the death of his lover, Vesper Lynd , and is assisted by Camille Montes , who is plotting revenge for the murder of her own family. Producer Michael G. Wilson developed the film's plot while the previous film in the series, Casino Royale , was being shot. Purvis, Wade, and Haggis contributed to the script. Although Craig and Forster wrote some sections themselves during the screenwriter strike ,  they received no such credits in the final cut. The title was chosen from a short story in Ian Fleming 's For Your Eyes Only , though the film does not contain any elements of that story. Forster aimed to make a modern film that also featured classic cinema motifs: a vintage Douglas DC-3 was used for a flight sequence, and Dennis Gassner 's set designs are reminiscent of Ken Adam 's work on several early Bond films.
Literally picking up where Casino Royale left off, Quantum of Solace follows James Bond Daniel Craig on his quest for answers and vengeance for the recent death of his love. The investigation leads Bond to Dominic Greene Mathieu Amalric , a corrupt businessman and key figure in Quantum, who is attempting to overthrow the Bolivian government, as well as Camille Olga Kurylenko , a pouty partner looking for revenge. Unfortunately, this is not one of those movies you can jump into without previously viewing the prior film. Quantum of Solace is more of a direct continuation of Casino Royale than anything. Somehow, Bond not only gets into a chase scene on foot, but also in a car, and a boat. However, whereas many Hollywood action films these days sacrifice a good story in order to blow more shit up, such is not the case with Quantum of Solace.
He's back. Daniel Craig allays any fear that he was just a one-Martini Bond, with this, his second adventure, the perplexingly named Quantum Of Solace. I've got to admit that this didn't excite me as much as Casino Royale and the villain is especially underpowered. But Craig personally has the chops, as they say in Hollywood. He's made the part his own, every inch the coolly ruthless agent-cum-killer, nursing a broken heart and coldly suppressed rage. If the Savile Row suit with the Beretta shoulder holster fits, wear it. And he's wearing it.
There are not a lot of major releases on this week's list.

The new James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace," opens nationwide today and review are mixed but positive, if not glowing. No one denies the action or beautiful scenery. In "Quantum of Solace," James Bond orders the revenge buffet, deluxe. We begin just after "Casino Royale," with Bond's girlfriend Vesper dead and her other, missing boyfriend suspected in forcing the events that led to her death, which was perhaps the first suicide by drowning in an elevator yet recorded on-screen. With Vesper gone, the only woman around who understands Bond a well-scuffed Daniel Craig is Judi Dench's M, and the way these two hurl flameball glances at each other re-creates the kind of raw sexual tension unseen since the early days of the Siskel and Ebert show. Who needs Moneypenny when you've got Wenchy Denchy?
