Movie review: Quantum of Solace -- 4 out of 5 stars

Brevity is the soul of Bond. That's a truism producers mercifully remembered for Daniel Craig 's second outing as 007. Full Story

I find it slightly better than awesome that a Bond movie was reviewed by Roger Moore. :)

Too bad he sucks as a critic. His reviews are always wrong. I just got back from the midnight movie of 007 and it was a poor movie and Craig was stil woefully miscast as Bond. The audience came out numb it was so bad and it has been awhile since I have seen that and I am a huge Bond fan.

When did James Bond become g_ay and introspective?
I said it when they first announced Daniel Craig could be the new bond and it remains true. He is positively dreadful and insutling to the series.
James Bond is supposed to be a confident womanizer with an air of invincibility.
this guy is woody allen with a chronograph!
Bring back Brosnan!

...by comparison!

I'm going to hold my breath on short fat models making me look good now.

Craig is the closest depiction of Bond to the original Ian Flemming character from his novels. Don't know why some of you seem want a cartoon character like Austin Powers.

Sean Connery set the bar. Everyone else needs to tow the line. If i wanted to watch Spy-hard i would watch Spyhard.

There is a reason there arent spy movies starring woody allen or matthew perry!

James Bond is supposed to be an invincible womanizer with no emotions. That's just how it evolved.

Few Bond fans have read even a single Bond novel (I haven't, though I wouldn't call myself a Bond fan), and we both know there are many Bond fans who don't know the character originated in novels and if they do know, don't care (I don't). What they're hoping for is something similar to the films featuring their own favorite Bond, whoever it happens to be.
Me, I grew up with Roger Moore playing Bond, and that's who and what I have a fondness for. The recent Bond flicks, going back to Timothy Dalton, have lost all the charm and cheekiness of the Connery/Moore flicks and have been reduced to your standard big-budget explosion-packed action flicks with a character who happens to be named James Bond. When it comes down to it, I don't see much difference between recent Bond flicks and any fill-in-the-blank John McCain Diehard flick.

I saw the movie today and truly enjoyed it. No gadgets which for a Bond film was shocking and no Moneypenny! Loved the chase scenes of which there were many. Highly reccommend it.

I have read some of the Bond books. My favourite is Roger Moore. Sean Connery is a favourite with every male I know. All the others did a good enough job. The first time I watched Daniel Craig I wasn't so sure, now I've accepted him, this new movie will make up my mind where I'll place him on my list. I think Clive Owen could get away with it. Does anyone else see it in him?
Why no Moneypenny? It's lost points already.
(pardon the "Bondlike" pun.)
