James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country's most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love.
Armed with a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
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
On 19 April 2008, Fraser Dunn, an engineer driving Bond's Aston Martin DBS to the set lost control of the car and ended up in Northern Italy's Lago di Garda (Lake Garda). Some media labelled the incident, "Dry Another Day" (spoof of Die Another Day (2002). The technican suffered only minor injuries but the car, valued at £120,000 ($235K), was completely totaled. Reportedly, a fan later paid about (UK) £200,000 for the wrecked car which is about £70,000 more than what the car was worth brand new. More surprising is the fact that this particular car (one of six) was not part of even any filming for the movie and is not seen in the final film. See more »
In the opening car chase sequence, the Carabinieri give chase in a Landrover 110, however, after it crashes into the building and falls of the cliff you can quite clearly see it has been swapped for a Defender 90. See more »
You killed a man in Bregenz.
I did my best not to.
You shot him at point blank and threw him off a roof. I would hardly call that showing restraint!

I went to see this on Sunday, thinking that it would be the same amazing picture that was Casino Royale. Sadly, it wasn't. Quantum of Solace still has the action, the girl and the explosions that you'd expect, but it is still missing something. By removing the gadgets, the car (only around for the first 5 minutes) and the improvisation that you'd expect a Bond flick to have, it has removed essentially what is a Bond film and what you are left with is the story. And the story was not that thought out. Many moments left me thinking: "what was the point of that?". The film is a lot darker, focusing mainly on the character seeking "revenge" but was not the film I expected it to be. A good watch, better than anything else at the cinema now, but not as good a film as I thought, and I felt a bit disappointed walking out. At most 7/10 but probably 6/10
