Quantum of Solace



Watched the latest Bond's movie yesterday. Should say the action scenes are getting better and better, but not to its storyline. To me, I still feel a bit confused after watching the movie. One more thing which is different when looking back the previous series, there are not much intimacy actions between Bond and the so-called Bond girls..Haha!! Anyway, my rating for this show is 3/5. Still worth watching!!

I loved the movie. Despite Bond's reputation as a womanizer, Daniel Craig oozes enough machismo and charisma that I don't find it distasteful, lol. Gawd. I can't wait to uh, inspect Loading Toys' "Dangerous Man".

Agree with you, Mizu. Bond always looks good. Overall, the film is still ok to me. I am also thinking to get the headsculpt from Loading Toys. Let's wait and see the actual product..

Craig still have 2 more 007 movie contract to go so bond should be more "playboy" in its third installment. The casino royale and solace is just the beginning of his "licensed to kill"...because of his lost love, he turn out to be the playboy and die hard spy in the later part we know :P

Thanks for your info, Ken! I quite like Craig to act as James Bond. Before this, Brosnan is my favourite as he always has the Bond's look. Too bad, he is getting older these few years.

I just watched this movie yesterday and was devastated to see an Aston Martin so badly abused in the opening scenes!

Why can't they use a cheaper normal car? The Bond pursuers used Alpha Romeos which also crashed!

@Juliana - It's simple as the movie is James Bond. He is a special agent works for the government. He definitely uses the best stuff that he is entitled to (also FOC). His missions are dangerous which may kill him any time any place. So, everything must be the best (die die must enjoy). If I were James Bond, I will do that too as I use my life to exchange for all these..Will you do that?? Haha!!

Juliana said...

Ok, life as a secret agent is definitely not for me :P

The pursuers' car that crashed headlong into an oncoming truck was very convincing. The bad guys were still in the car when they slammed into the truck...

Yes, the quality of being real for a film is essential to keep up the expectation of the audience nowadays..

yeah i agree with you desmond, the action was really blood poundingly fast paced, however the storyline lacked progress..


kinda falls short of royale, and yeah bond girls kinda like camos only.
