Storyline

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>

Trivia

To film the aerial dogfight, a "Snake-head" camera was built and placed on the nose of a Piper Aerostar 700. This camera is shaped like a periscope and can turn 360°. It was used so that pilots for the first time can fly as "aggressively as they dare without sacrificing the drama of the shot." See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

M: When someone says "We've got people everywhere", you expect it to be hyperbole! Lots of people say that. Florists use that expression. It doesn't mean that they've got somebody working for them inside the bloody room!

Something is not quite right with this latest Bond offering
6 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

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.
