The cocktail that Bond has aboard the plane is called a "Vesper". Mathis mentions the name of the drink in this scene. The drink is taken from the novel "Casino Royale". The scene suggests Bond is reflecting on Vesper Lynd from Casino Royale (2006) by way of using emotive music score reminiscent of their romance in a scene where he is drinking the martini which is known by her name.

While in Austria you see two license plates with 4 letters before the state emblem. In reality, all Austrian license plates have a maximum of 2 Letters before the state emblem. The emblem shown was the correct one for the state that Bregenz is in, but that letter combination wouldn't be possible. See more »
The Americans are gonna be none too pleased.
I promised them Le Chiffre and they got him.
They got his body.
Well, if they wanted his soul, they should have made a deal with a priest.

Something is not quite right with this latest Bond offering
This film is about James Bond cracking down a multi-national corporation that works with dictators to get a share of precious natural resources.
"Quantum Of Solace" has an impressive opening sequence. It has high speed car chases with lots of collision and gunshots. The ultra short scenes (all under one second each) and the shaky camera gives urgency and thrill, but it is so hard to actually work out what is happening.
There is a lot of action and adrenaline in the film, but the plot seems not to have a focus. Nor does it make sense either, as it feels like an all-action-no-information film. All Bond does is to run around the globe after his target, and viewers are left to wonder how he made it. I don't find myself caring for the plot or the characters. I don't know why this happens, but something is not right with the film and I don't know what.
