Review by Travis Meacham.

'Quantum of Solace' continues the story of the explosive 'Casino Royale' with Daniel Craig's Bond tracking down the secret cabal responsible for the death of Vesper Lynd. Unfortunately poorly-staged action and terrible villains hamper what could have been an incredible film.

I don't mind shaky cams. And I like the idea of an agent that kills with lethal quickness and precision. Yeah, the Bourne films popularized the technique, but I think it still revitalizes the tired Bond franchise. Reminds me of the Nolan Batman films though. The movies are excellent except the action scenes are usually too chaotic with too many quick cuts that leave you wondering what the hell is going on and just leaves you disoriented.

I heard the pirated version can already be found in China: Quantum of Sore Ass

I would definetly have to agree about too many cuts in the opening scenes.
It was nerely impossible to follow the action.

After that it was ok. The exploding fuel cells was a little ridiculous I thought.
