Skyfall is out! What better way to celebrate than to look back…
Here’s what I thought of Quantum Of Solace on the day it came out.
It’s okay. If I could describe the film to you via the art of movement, it would be a shrug. Loved Casino Royale. It worked when it shouldn’t. The second in the Craig trilogy reminded me just how much better Bourne is when it comes to action packed spy caperey.
The intelligence, style and storyline of Casino Royale has been lost .
The action sequences are good though (no surprise there really). Chases which uses every form of transport under the sun, and a nice bit of fighting too. The building-to-building foot chase is the highlight.
The Greengrassesque camerawork took away some of the class of the scenes. But the brilliant and elaborate stunt work kept me interested.
The plot? Ha ha!
Dominic Greene didn’t scare or worry me in any way, which is a shame as he is a bond villain.
The opening credits? Well, the silhouette women are back, and I like the song. The rest felt a bit empty for me. Nice oily scene involving the lovely Miss Fields. I liked that.
To end – I will shrug.
