Just came back from the cinema. We went to see the new Bond movie Quantum of Solace which was a real action-extravaganza movie, what Daniel Craig lacks in class – he certainly makes up with his fists. Quantum of Solace is co-written by Paul Haggis who also wrote Crash, which makes the story surprisingly thin. I know it’s a Bond movie, and that there may be little room for playing around, but it still comes up oddly ‘short’.
The synopsis on IMDB: “Seeking revenge for the death of his love, secret agent James Bond sets out to stop an environmentalist from taking control of a country’s water supply.”
The second part of this sentence is what really disturbs me, “an environmentalist taking control of a country’s water supply”, c’mon! What happend to the Russians that just wanted to mess around and blow up the world with nuclear for monetary fame? It is almost too right, and too perfect for our time if you ask me.
But still. Bond is always Bond, and action is always action. I enjoyed it.
