Bond 22: Quantum of Solace

Released 2008 Rating 12A in UK
Director Marc Forster Writer/s Paul Haggis, Neil Purvis, Robert Wade
Starring Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko, Judi Dench, Gemma Arterton, Jeffrey Wright, Rory Kinnear, Tim Pigott-Smith,
Source of story A continuation of Casino Royal, title apparently an Ian Fleming short story.
Elevator Pitch The secret organisation Quantum has penetrated the inner sanctum of MI6, with an attempt on the life of M. This sets Bond on a tortuous trail in search of its head. He is assisted by a female member of the Bolivian secret service.
Content Lots of combat, explosions, gunfire, chases on foot, in cars and in boats and actually in aircraft. Sometimes Bond and Camille are being chased, sometimes they are doing the chasing.
A View A bit of a thin plot, but sticking with the new “post Bourne” Bond. I was interested to see some tributes to a number of old Bond films. And overall, if you are a Bond fan you’ll think this is okay. If not you might like to start off further back in the franchise.
