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

The title is taken from the Ian Fleming short story of the same name in the book "For Your Eyes Only", first published on April 11, 1960. It's the third short story from the "For Your Eyes Only" collection, and it's the last short story from the book to be used in some way for a Bond movie. "For Your Eyes Only", and two other Fleming short stories, were originally conceived in the 1950s as scripts for a never-produced James Bond television series with CBS. "Quantum of Solace" was not one of the short stories conceived for television. The short story was written by Fleming on the way back from, and after returning from, the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean during the summer of 1958. As such, this makes the release of this film the 50th Anniversary of the writing of the short story. 2008 is also the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Fleming. "Quantum of Solace" was first published in Modern Woman (Cosmopolitan) Magazine in May 1959. The source story is not considered a spy espionage story, though there is mention of a mission, the story is an anecdote told to James Bond at a dinner party. This is therefore the first EON Productions James Bond movie since The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) to utilize a non-spy story as a source for a Bond movie. The story was an attempt by Fleming to write a more literature serious story, somewhat in the vein of W. Somerset Maugham, and is frequently described in the literary world as "a Maughamish anecdote". It was inspired by a true story in an anecdote told to Fleming by friend, neighbor, and one-time lover, Blanche Blackwell, who received a Cartier wrist watch as a gift from him when it was published.

a quasi Bond a'la triple X
13 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

What a band of clueless idiots wrote, directed and produced this film. Someone should have told them before that the general public is tired of this new fashion of quick editing, cutting the action scenes and fights to pieces so that the viewer sees... nothing. It is an awful film-making method, which spoilt greatly "Gladiator" for me and then several other action films, including this one. Large chinks of the Decalogue are totally cliché and boring. To have such a product, such a budget and choose a talentless director and a mediocre script is very disappointing. I like the them song though, contrary to most I consider it one of the strongest Bond songs of all time. I hope to see more fun, joy of living dangerously and expensively and more sophistication in the next Bond. Finally, someone wrote here that Judy Dench is in fact always the same, I agree. She must be the most overrated actress ever.
