Storyline

Is there solace in revenge? Bond and "M" sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on "M," all roads lead to Dominic Greene, a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for assisting a strongman stage a coup there. The CIA looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and from a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. "M" wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Beyond that, can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

An early draft of the script involved Bond discovering that Vesper had a child (by a previous relationship) and who had been kidnapped by Quantum. Paul Haggis' submitted script included a scene at a U.N.-style international conference, with Bond having to follow a Quantum secret conference by constantly switching frequencies. The scene was re-written to take place at an opera, as Marc Forster feared that it wouldn't be visually interesting. See more »

Goofs

M tells Bond that a DNA analysis has been done on a lock of hair. Strictly speaking, locks of hair are cut off and do not contain the hair follicle which is preferable for DNA analysis. However, it is possible to get DNA from hair samples that lack roots, although it takes more time and effort. It is likely that the case was given priority to facilitate the effort. See more »

Alternate Versions

Following an advisory screening of a rough cut, the film was pre-cut on BBFC advice in the UK before official submission to the Board for a formal cinema classification, with edits made to one scene in the finale. It was subsequently passed "uncut" as a 12A. More detailed notes can be found on the BBFC's website. Worldwide versions are this same pre-cut version. See more »

Good, but not good enough
2 November 2008 | by alexandermussardSee all my reviews

I went to see this on Sunday, thinking that it would be the same amazing picture that was Casino Royale. Sadly, it wasn't. Quantum of Solace still has the action, the girl and the explosions that you'd expect, but it is still missing something. By removing the gadgets, the car (only around for the first 5 minutes) and the improvisation that you'd expect a Bond flick to have, it has removed essentially what is a Bond film and what you are left with is the story. And the story was not that thought out. Many moments left me thinking: "what was the point of that?". The film is a lot darker, focusing mainly on the character seeking "revenge" but was not the film I expected it to be. A good watch, better than anything else at the cinema now, but not as good a film as I thought, and I felt a bit disappointed walking out. At most 7/10 but probably 6/10
