A devastating betrayal sends James Bond from Australia to Italy and South America on a mission of vengeance that pits the suave super-spy against a powerful businessman with diabolical intentions. Betrayed by Vesper, 007 (Daniel Craig) suppresses the urge to make his latest mission personal as he teams with M (Judi Dench) to interrogate Mr. White (Jesper Christensen). It soon becomes apparent that the organization behind the blackmailing of Vesper is more powerful than Bond and M had previously anticipated, and after discovering forensic evidence that links an MI6 traitor to a bank in Haiti,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's ironic: After all these years of surviving everything that has been thrown at him, James Bond is finally being undone by his own team."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"The Quantum of Solace filmmakers have produced a super-serious, often visually incoherent travelogue of revenge and trumped-up angst."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Quantum of Solace gives us James Bond doing what he does best. Let's just hope next time, he's given a more interesting universe to do it in."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"This may not make my list of Top 5 Bond films, but it's unfair to expect that every time. But, it's one hell of an action movie, and a "satisfying enough" Bond film."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
"Complain about the re-invention all you want, at least it doesn't feel like Benny Hill with a gun anymore."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"Quantum of Solace prompts the question: Is revenge the only possible motive for large-scale movie heroism these days?"
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Forster, a director of upscale tearjerkers, has no feel for action sequences. The big chases, of which there are several, could all be replaced with a title card reading, 'Insert action here'."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"This time around, Bond's biggest adversaries are those behind the camera."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"At times, you feel you can see the character - and by proxy the writers - actually thinking, "So what now?""
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"This Bond -- number 22 if you're counting -- is ruthless, efficient, and tough as nails."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Quantum of Solace is a model of mediocrity, even though Daniel Craig gives his all to a production that doesn't deserve him."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Quantum of Solace is best when director Marc Forster allows his star the latitude to explore emotions that, until Craig stepped into the shoes of the character, we didn't know Bond had."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Never reaches the heights of Daniel Craig's first outing as 007, but it's enjoyable enough and continues the path of redeeming the franchise."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Compared to the rest of the Bond series, Quantum Of Solace is something of an aberration (especially given the unorthodox ending) so it's just as well that Craig stays on target. He is, without doubt, the best Bond thus far."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
"Turns out to be almost as bad as its title."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
