Synopsis from DVD Cover:
On a nonstop quest for justice that crisscrosses the globe, Bond meets the beautiful but feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), who leads him to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless businessman and major force within the mysterious Quantum organization. When Bond uncovers a conspiracy to take control of one of the world's most important natural resources, he must navigate a minefield of treachery, deception and murder to neutralize Greene before it's too late!

Quick Review:
Before "Casino Royale," I was a total James Bond newbie. I'd seen bits and pieces of Bond films, but never an entire movie, and never enough to form an opinion. When the Daniel Craig Bond franchise began, there was a lot of complaining, but from what I saw, he made an interesting 007 - though somewhat less slick and stylized than what I'd expected based on previous Bond portrayers. I really enjoyed "Casino Royale," and I looked forward to "Quantum of Solace" - but while the leads are still strong and the effects look good, this Bond flick was lacking in most other areas.

"Quantum of Solace" starts up right where "Casino Royale" left off, with James Bond (Daniel Craig) hot to avenge the death of his last lady, Vesper Lynd. Somehow that all leads to this smarmy but not exactly menacing eco-villain named Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric) who's got some thing for Bolivia. Throw in that Bond has had to go all rogue because he keeps getting himself in trouble and you've got a sometimes confusing, often dull 007 installment.

Having seen a few Bond movies since my first "Quantum of Solace" viewing, I have a better understanding of what exactly it's missing. There's no humor, style, or cleverness. It's not Craig's Bond - he was different than other Bond's in "Casino Royale," but he was still an engaging, witty, sexy spy. There was also a plot in that one. Here, the big bad is ... stealing water from Bolivia? I mean, I get that there's more to it than that, but it's all kind of convoluted and uninteresting. And Dominic Greene has got to be the most boring villain I've encountered in a while-I meet scarier guys at Wal-mart. Again, it's not really the actor's fault; Amalric does what he can with a totally unthreatening, one-dimensional bad guy. The one bright spot is Olga Kurylenko as this outing's Bond girl Camille. She's smart and hot and doesn't get it on with 007. The rest of the movie, though, isn't horrible as far as a by-the-numbers action film, but it offers nothing new to the genre or the franchise.

The Special Features section doesn't really do anything to make the DVD anything special, even in the two-disc edition. There's a music video for "Another Way to Die" and some trailers on Disc One. Disc Two is a series of Making Of pieces: "Bond on Location," "Start of Shooting," "On Location, "Olga Kurylenko and the Boat Chase," "Director Marc Forster," "The Music," and Crew Files, which lets us in on what exactly everyone did in the film. The whole thing totals about 40 minutes and is pretty slim pickings for a two-disc release.

In Conclusion:
Not the worst movie I've ever seen, "Quantum of Solace" has a dumb title that clues us in to what's in store-a convoluted action film lacking in fun, depth, and anything to render it memorable.
