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?

An early draft of the script involved Bond discovering that Vesper had a child (by a previous relationship) and who had been kidnapped by Quantum. Paul Haggis
' submitted script included a scene at a U.N.-style international conference, with Bond having to follow a Quantum secret conference by constantly switching frequencies. The scene was re-written to take place at an opera, as Marc Forster
feared that it wouldn't be visually interesting. See more
Bond uses a Walther PPK pistol throughout the movie. If Quantum of Solace is set immediately after Casino Royale
, Bond would still be using a Beretta, as Q Branch is yet to have assigned Bond the Walther PPK. However, there is no reason an MI6 armorer could not have switched Bond from his previous Walther P99 to the PPK before he shoots Mr White at the end of Casino Royale. We do not see his sidearm, only the H&K UMP he uses to kneecap White (which he still has in Quantum). He could have had said PPK on him the whole time. See more
You know I was just wondering what South America would look like if nobody gave a damn about coke or communism. It always impressed me the way you boys would carve this place up.
I'll take that as a compliment coming from a Brit.
