    Action, action, and more action. gotta love these new age 007 films. first 15 mins was straight action then they talked for a little bit then right back at the action for the whole movie. not to mention Olga Kurylenko is easy on the eyes. so many Ukraine women coming around nowadays. daniel craig throws his body around and gets the shit kicked out of himself more then ever in this one. for 007 lovers this one is a good watch. explosions, fighting & guns. just good ole action! 9/10

    Good Movie plot was very linear but otherwise awesome stunts.
    There's three ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way and the way that I do it.

    - Robert De Niro (Casino movie)

    Well I have to say... "Quantum of Solace" was a good and very modern action movie... But honestly: Is this film still a Bond movie?! No gadgets, no Q, no "Bond, James Bond", no sex, no "shaken, not stired".
    Daniel Craig is a great actor but I would love to see him in a classical Bond story and not a compilation of stunts and action scenes!

    I'll preface this by admitting that I'm not a big fan of the Bond franchise- any era.

    This past weekend one of the networks was running a Bond marathon- three of the more recent Pierce Brosnan outings- and I watched them back to back.
    I suppose you might consider them to be the epitome of the "classical" Bond films as they had all the elements you cited.
    Without exception, I found them to be horrible.

    Craig's Casino Royale I liked much more, precisely because it jettisoned so many of the cliches that the franchise had become burdened with.
    Much like The Dark Knight, Craig's Bond strips the character down to the bare essence and begins to rebuild the mythos in a more modern framework.

    Since we seem fated to a neverending parade of Bond films, I'd prefer the "reboot" over the downward spiral of parody that seemed inevitable.
    That said, I have yet to see Quantum so I don't know how it's working out.

    The only thing "bond" about this movie was the character names. The last 2 movies have strayed so far from Flemmings character to the point he now seems more like a Mac Bowlan character than anything else

    I've been trying to point that out on several forums without luck.I've actually used the Dark Knight analogy.

    I've argued that Craig is both the finest actor and his Bond the truest representation of what Fleming originally envisioned.
    I've try to tell them that Bond (to quote Judi Dench from Casino Royale)is merely a blunt weapon and the legendary suavity just a thin veneer covering a decidedly unpleasant core .
    I've said Moore took Bond almost to the level of parody of Austin Powers.
    I've expressed that the foremost reason that Sean Connery is deemed the best bond is but nostalgia for an era most commenting never even experienced.

    All I've gotten back is Roger Moore was funny so I likes hims best.

    That said, Quantum of Solace doesn't hold a candle to Casino Royale and it's got zero to do with making Bond more realistic or contemporary .

    The answer's more straight forward: bad script(Paul Haggis ran short of time to flesh it out due to the looming writers strike),wrong choice for director and probably the most unforgivable sin, both a mission and villain unworthy of Bond's talents.
    That and for all the dual revenge angle the film felt emotionally empty.

    Craig was absolutely fecking fan-tastic though (as were Dame Judi as M and Jeffery Wright as American ally Felix Leiter).
