Consensus: Brutal and breathless, Quantum Of Solace delivers tender emotions along with frenetic action, but coming on the heels of Casino Royale, it's still a bit of a disappointment.

The 22nd James Bond flick is visually brilliant. The action sequences combined with the flair of Daniel Craig develops the same great 007 spark. But the film… More
