Quantum of Solace (2008)
Okay, but should have been much better
After the huge success of the reboot Casino Royale, can Quantum of Solace live up the the high standards set by Casino Royale, or does it fail to deliver?
-CONTAINS SPOILERS OF QUANTUM OF SOLACE AND CASINO ROYALE-
Daniel Craig returns in his second outing as Bond,in this sequel immediately following the end of Casino Royale.
Release in 2008, Quantum of Solace is a direct continuation of Casino Royale:Bond seeks to avenge the death of Vesper,who died in Casino Royale.
If you haven't seen Casino Royale, you should probably watch that before watching Quantum of Solace to fully understand it, although it is explained in this movie also. It was directed by Marc Forster and stars Daniel Craig,Olga Kurylenko,Judi Dench & Mathieu Amalric.
Seeking revenge for the death of his love, secret agent James Bond sets out to stop an environmentalist from taking control of a country's valuable resource.
Immediately continuing where Casino Royale left off, Bond brings Mr.White to M16 and they interrogate him. Mr.White reveals the Quantum organization to MI6. Seeking to avenge the death of Vesper,Bond attempts to hunt down the Quantum organization.
Characters 2/5 Bond is pretty much Bond. Nothing really new accept he wants to avenge Vesper. Dominic Greene is not a very memorable villain. He is looking for oil. Camille Montes is not a memorable Bond girl at all, she wants revenge, so she helps Bond.
Other than Craig and Dench, no one's performance was very good, maybe with the exception of Olga Kurylenko's. Mathieu Amalric's performance as Dominic Greene was just above average, but he should not have been a Bond villain, but that's weakness in the character, not the actor. Performance 2.5/5 Nothing really stood out accept maybe when Bond left Greene in the desert with a can of motor oil. The pacing of the movie was very slow at times and could have used some more action or story development. The movie seems like it was written as a continuation of Casino Royale,instead of a new movie entirely, but it doesn't seem like it was written by the same writers, even though it was. Action:2/5 I would not recommend this movie.
This movie is barely a Bond film, no memorable villains, no great action scenes,no gadgets,few real Bond elements. It seems like they rushed this movie to quickly get another one out there when they saw how successful Casino Royale was, so they decided to just continue where they left off and write the script as they went.(I don't know for sure that they actually did that, but it seems like it)
Who would like it? The only people who will probably like this movie are the Bond Fanatics. Unless you love the Bond series so much that you must see every one that is released(like me) than maybe you should pass on this one,it's not really worth watching, and it's a horrible Bond film, it's not a horrible movie,there are much worse movies out there, but it's not up to the standards of the Bond series... Pretty much everyone else probably won't like this movie,and probably most of the Bond fans will hate this movie also.
Overall Rating 6/10 This movie probably should have never been made, and I seriously hope that all future Bond movies are a hundred times better than this, because then they will be half as good as Casino Royale was.
The Hangover (2009)
The WORST movie I have ever seen!
The Hangover is the MOST OVERRATED MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. All it is an over-hyped over-acted unoriginal piece of garbage. It is a total rip off of Dude where's my car. As a movie critic, The Hangover was very insulting that the writers think the audience is actually that stupid. But judging from most of other reviews of the hangover 1&2,they are that stupid.
This shouldn't have even been released as anything more than a TV movie, and even that should not have done this good. The most successful R rated comedy ever made? People need to stop watching movies drunk if they are going to review them, because that movie spat in the face of Comedies,their audiences and movies in general. The movie is about a guy about to get married who goes to Vegas with his friends and "disappears". Then they all wake up hungover and don't remember what happened the night before(What is this like the 50th movie about hungover idiots who don't remember what happened the night before in the last couple years?)The "Funny" parts of the movie are so forced and most of it is just supposed to be "shocking" It's like the writer of this movie just was drunk one night watching movies with his drunk friends and one of them said "hey man, you're funny.You should write a Comedy" because that is literally what I was thinking while I was watching it. A bunch of drunk idiots working on a movie with no real movie experience at all.Apes could do a better job.
If their was any number lower than 1/10 to rate I would have rated it that,but unfortunately there isn't so I have to rate it 1/10.
