Review of film: “QUANTUM OF SOLACE” -- Revenge is Sweet + NOISY & BLOODY

Review of film:  JAMES BOND -- QUANTUM OF SOLACE --  Revenge is Sweet + NOISY & BLOODY =   
                              [ Rating:  8.5 of 10 stars ]
Date Rated: Nov 14, 2008 | Rel. Date: Nov 14, 2008
(Based on an advance preview:)  Normally, most JAMES BOND movies are “self-contained” in & of themselves. But this film is in-effect made as a “SEQUEL”, in that Bond (DANIEL CRAIG) works to get back at those who killed his love Vesper in the last installment, “CASINO ROYALE” (2006)...

...  This film has him running (& jumping & riding) around various worldwide locations (Italy, South America, England, etc.) as he tries to find the perpetrators of the previous crime, while he works to juggle the increasingly-testy relationships with his superiors and figure out what new world-control scheme Camille (OLGA KURYLENKO) & Dominic Greene (MATHIEU AMALRIC) are involved in...

...  While the film for the most part avoids a bunch of clever “GADGETS” (which audiences tend to love) & the story is often somewhat confusing & nothing great, the ACTION sequences are wonderfully done, & it’s my enjoyment of that & the enthusiastic acting which caused me to rate the film as I have.
