Quantum of Solace: James Bond Revisited

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

After the smash success of CASINO ROYALE, EON wanted to strike when the iron was hot and immediately launched into production on the second Daniel Craig James Bond movie, QUANTUM OF SOLACE. For the first time in the franchise's history, it would be a direct sequel to the previous installment, with it picking up immediately where the last film left off. Directed by MONSTER'S BALL's Marc Forster, the film was obviously influenced by the BOURNE IDENTITY movies and was hampered by a writer's guild strike. The result is an episodic entry, where the script only exists to bridge together a lot of bone-crushing action, albeit marred by too much quick cutting and no sense of geography. 

Hated by many fans, we've gone back and taken a look at this divisive installment, which features Olga Kurylenko, Gemma Arterton, Mathieu Amalric, and more. Is it as bad as its reputation suggests? Check out this latest installment of James Bond Revisited!
