Quantum of Solace Review

Daniel Craig returns for a second shot as James Bond in Quantum of Solace. This time he's up against the villainous Dominic Green (Mathieu Amalric), who is hoarding water supplies and trying to overthrow governments. So, 007 has quite a challenge ahead of him!

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the James Bond movies (I am a chick, remember?) So, I tend to think of it in terms of how attractive is the guy playing the lead role. And Sean Connery will always win this in my book! (It's that voice!) But, the action sequences were realistic and impressive and the drama was indeed... dramatic. I also thought that this was not QUITE up to par with Casino Royale, but for the avid Bond fans, this movie definitely delivered! I really enjoyed the theme song that was performed by Alicia Keyes and Jack White, "Another Way to Die."

Family Time Factor: Action flicks are not my idea of a good date movie. That's not to say that everyone feels that way however. So, it has date movie potential, but not family time potential. Teenagers might enjoy watching it with their parents, but it's definitely not for the toddlers or adolescents.
