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?

Did You Know?
The free-fall sequence seen in the film was performed by the cast members doing indoor skydiving. This utilizes a vertical wind tunnel, which shifts air up through a vertical column wind tunnel at about one hundred twenty miles per hour. People can fly through the air without having to skydive or parachute. As a person floats in mid-air, their action is so described as "bodyflight". This activity is a legitimate pastime similar to skydiving, and is also used as training for that activity. See more
At the end of Casino Royale
, Bond was wearing a light-blue shirt and a three-piece suit when he shot Mr. White in the leg. At the beginning of Quantum of Solace, his shirt is white and his waistcoat has disappeared, and in fact both he and White seems to be in slightly different suits. If the events of Quantum of Solace occur an hour after those of Casino Royale, it would mean that both had an inexplicable clothing change just before the car chase. (In fact, this continuity error betrays the fact that the films' costumiers are different: Brioni provided suits before, but for this film it is Tom Ford
.) See more
