Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quantum is a big letdown. Marc Foster, definitely a wrong director
14 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Quantum of Solace twice. First time for curiosity and expectation and second time for confirmation. I am a big bond fan like many of you. I can watch any bond film without a problem. I know that there are some of you out there that have some issues with some of the Bond actors. Connery, Roger, Pierce, and Craig, I personally love them all as 007 and I've enjoyed pretty much every single bond movie. There is just something about bond films that I get excited and mesmerized by. Anyway speaking of Quantum of Solace, I am really confused by what in the world they did to this film and why in the world they hired Marc Foster to direct this. Plus, is this really the highest budgeted bond film? are you kidding me? All the money must've been spent on pointless and unoriginal action sequences and explosions. sigh... Anyway, Quantum of Solace is a huge disappointment. At one point, I couldn't believe this was a Bond movie. There are just so many problems such as plot flow, direction, character development, very uninteresting villains, and most importantly, all the Bond story and character elements have been stripped away. I think they made a huge mistake by hiring some incompetent crew that are into sappy Avant-Garde movies. Foster and his crew destroyed pretty much everything that Casino Royale had accomplished to revive the franchise. Anyway, in my opinion, Quantum of Solace was just awful and probably one of the worst bond movies I've ever seen. Craig's talent and Bond franchise are definitely put in jeopardy. However, this movie will make lots of profit and do well in the box office due to success of its predecessor "Casino Royale." Unfortunately, the main motivation of the viewer will be pure curiosity and expectation driven by all the media hypes. I am sorry to say this but this movie is a failure. As a bond fan, I am really angry about this. If Marc Foster directs another Bond movie, I will never watch another Bond film again.
