Consensus: Brutal and breathless, Quantum Of Solace delivers tender emotions along with frenetic action. Not as good as franchise reboot Casino Royale, but still an impressive entry to the Bond canon.

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.

The Quantum of Solace filmmakers have produced a super-serious, often visually incoherent travelogue of revenge and trumped-up angst.

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.

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'.

Quantum of Solace is a model of mediocrity, even though Daniel Craig gives his all to a production that doesn't deserve him.

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.

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.

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

This film tries way too hard to get up to the standards that "Casino Royale" met, but sadly, it is just a bunch of jumbled action, jumbled dialogue… More
