Film: Quantum of Solace Click for more info

More of the same nu-Bond action as first introduced by Casino Royale two years ago - it even carries on where we left Bond as he tries to find out those responsible for the demise of Vesper.

Seemingly a bit unfinished at times both in terms of production and plotline, QoS manages to do a well enough job at entertaining. I must admit that I lost track of both the story and dialogue more than once; the convolutions and dialogue seemed a bit unnecessary at times.

But like Casino Royale, QoS was more about Bond than any story or presentation and like the first instalment it does a good job with that. It's just a shame that we've seen it all before - there's only so much angsty spy action you can take after a while. Recommended nonetheless.
