Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions Presents Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in...
Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 (Daniel Craig) fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M (Judi Dench) interrogate Mr. White (Jesper Christensen) who reveals the organization which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.

Forensic intelligence links a Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful by feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless business man and major force within the mysterious organization.

On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world's most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General Medrano (Joaquin Cosio). Using his associates in the organization, and manipulating his powerful contacts within the CIA and the British government, Greene promises to overthrow the existing regime in a Latin American country, giving the General control of the country in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of land.

In a minefield of treachery, murder and deceit, Bond allies with old friends in a battle to uncover the truth. As he gets closer to finding the man responsible for the betrayal of Vesper, 007 must keep one step ahead of the CIA, the terrorists and even M, to unravel Greene's sinister plan and stop his organization.

"...thanks to a deft blend of exotic escapism and bare-bones modernism...it's the perfect Bond film.  James Jung, Premiere
"...delivers the goods in bloody high style: explosively, sexily, and with 007 shaken (not stirred) to his icy core.  Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"...[Craig]'s reimagined the character in ways we never could have foreseen. He's Bond with soul.  Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Never less than engaging.  Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"...a relentlessly enjoyable star vehicle and a hard-charging action-o-rama full of the usual Bondian elements...  William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Editor's Note
Daniel Craig returns as 007 in this electrifying follow-up to the critically acclaimed CASINO ROYALE. The film opens with two gripping, back-to-back chases, as James Bond (Daniel Craig) tries to heed the orders of M (Judi Dench) and, at the same time, track down the people who blackmailed his love, Vesper. Bond is still struggling with Vesper's death, displaying a new, ferocious violence in his work, and a recklessness that M would very much like to get under control. When Bond discovers a massive, secret organization called Quantum, he believes it might have been a part of the scheme that killed Vesper. He follows the clues to Haiti, where he meets Camille (Olga Kurylenko), a mysterious, driven woman, whose motives seem unclear. Camille leads Bond to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Almalric), a cold-blooded businessman who appears to be working within Quantum. Greene wants control of a valuable piece of land in Latin America, and is part of a massive plan to overthrow the government. Bond knifes, shoots, and kick-boxes his way to the center of the sinister scheme, and discovers that the plot reaches even higher than he imagined, forcing him to abandon M's orders and step out on his own.

Director Marc Forster (STRANGER THAN FICTION) has crafted some truly memorable fight scenes, setting them in the most elegant of locales. Everything is beautifully shot, from Bond racing across the rooftops of Italy, to his showdown at an Austrian opera house. As for Craig, he is once again all cold precision and steely blue eyes. His 007 is positively riveting. He struts determinedly into every scene, ready to display his near superhuman fight moves, or bed a bombshell with merely a glance. Yet, just as in CASINO ROYALE, Craig never lets us forget Bond's humanity. He may fight like a ninja and smirk like Steve McQueen, but beneath his impeccable Tom Ford wardrobe, Bond is still but an ordinary man, wearily battling his own inner demons.

Expert Review Quantum of Solace - DVD Review
By: Bill Gibron filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 3/13/2009 5:38 PM
When Daniel Craig was announced as the next 007, the collective groan from the Ian Fleming faithful was almost loud enough to drown out the uniform shrug of the post-modern moviegoer. Where once he was the mightiest of Cold War icons, Britain's own James Bond has been marginalized by a combination of contemporary moviemaking and PC social posturing. Every few years, producers retrofit the franchise to match the perceived interest level of the ever-shrinking demo. After the excellent reboot in Casino Royale, Craig's second stint as the celebrated secret agent, Quantum of Solace, is as confusing as its title....read the full review

Professional Reviews

USA Today
"In QUANTUM OF SOLACE, the stunts are as muscular and the film as handsome to look at as the hero who so ably pulls them off." 11/14/2008

New York Times
"What about the villain? One of the best in a while...thanks to a lizardy turn from the great French actor Mathieu Amalric....The supporting cast is studded with equally excellent performers, including Jeffrey Wright and Giancarlo Giannini..." 11/14/2008

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Here, Bond is sharper, more angular, a tumbling knife of ire and intent. All the same gristle and bristle, but now glinting with inner steel." 11/01/2008 p.61

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "We get striking locations and absolutely gorgeous, stylised art direction....Daniel Craig continues to be his own man as Bond..." 12/01/2008 p.62

Premiere
"QUANTUM OF SOLACE is the finest installment in the storied franchise's 22-film history....Director Marc Forster has crafted a stylish 007 adventure that's both brutal and light on its feet." 11/14/2008

Hollywood Reporter
"The meanest and leanest James Bond film yet, QUANTUM OF SOLACE is a breathless splash of high-speed action that hurtles from one reckless chase to another." 10/24/2008

ReelViews 7 of 10
Quantum of Solace meets the Bond of the Moore/Dalton/Brosnan era halfway. It is not as intentionally low-key as Casino Royale, but neither is 007 the indestructible Superman he had become during Brosnan's watch. Prick him, he will bleed. But there is no Q and therefore no gadgets. This Batman has no utility belt. The only constant between the Brosnan and Craig eras is Judi Dench as M. Her presence creates headaches for continuity fetishists, but she adds just the right mix of acid and base to keep things balanced...Sadly, there's something a little hollow about the proceedings. There's no real catharsis. In fact, the whole thing doesn't feel like a complete movie, or at least not a complete Bond movie. While there are plenty of nods to previous Bond outings (such as the Goldfinger-inspired human artwork), the missing staples leave unfilled holes. For example, there is no utterance of "Bond. James Bond." There are none of the verbal puns and one-liners we have come to relish. There's no bloody iris at the beginning (it's at the end). Monty Norman's "James Bond Theme" is relegated to subtle cues in David Arnold's largely generic score, with the "full play" occurring only over the end credits...The film's biggest problem is its director. Marc Forster is an experienced art house filmmaker with impressive credits (most recently, The Kite Runner), but he is clueless when it comes to action sequences. His approach seems to be to shake the camera as much as possible and, to further obscure what's going on, to allow no cut to last more than about a half-second...This is the least satisfying production since The Living Daylights, and that goes back a while...But, as has always been the case with good films and bad ones, there's comfort to be found in the one thing we can rely on: James Bond will return. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 6 of 10
OK, I'll say it. Never again. Don't ever let this happen again to James Bond. "Quantum of Solace" is his 22nd film and he will survive it, but for the 23rd it is necessary to go back to the drawing board and redesign from the ground up. Please understand: James Bond is not an action hero! He is too good for that. He is an attitude. Violence for him is an annoyance. He exists for the foreplay and the cigarette. He rarely encounters a truly evil villain. More often a comic opera buffoon with hired goons in matching jump suits...Daniel Craig remains a splendid Bond, one of the best. He is handsome, agile, muscular, dangerous. Everything but talkative. I didn't count, but I think M (Judi Dench) has more dialogue than 007. Bond doesn't look like the urge to peel Camille has even entered his mind. He blows up a hotel in the middle of a vast, barren, endless Bolivian desert. It's a luxury hotel, with angular W Hotel-style minimalist room furniture you might cut your legs on, and a bartender who will stir or shake you any drink, but James has become a regular bloke who orders lager. Who are the clients at this highest of high-end hotels? Lawrence of Arabia, obviously, and millionaires who hate green growing things...There is no Q in "Quantum of Solace," except in the title. No Miss Moneypenny at all. M now has a male secretary. That Judi Dench, what a fox. Bond doesn't even size her up. He learned his lesson with Plenty. This Bond, he doesn't bring much to the party. Daniel Craig can play suave and he can be funny and Brits are born doing double entendre. Craig is a fine actor. Here they lock him down. I repeat: James Bond is not an action hero! Leave the action to your Jason Bournes. This is a swampy old world. The deeper we sink in, the more we need James Bond to stand above it. - Roger Ebert
