James Bond and his movie genre return boldly in Quantum of Solace. During the course of the movie, my mind recalled the early (Sean Connery) Bond installments. Solace returns Bond to the reticent and emotionally closed off spy who simply enjoys some women becomes attached to other women and above all seeks to protect the UK and the world. Or, to put it more bluntly, Solace is a traditional spy movie.
If viewers seek an involved plot and an intellectual story, this movie is not for you. If you want a two hour vacation from life, beautiful vistas, some action and intrigue, then Quantum of Solace is a must see. Bond travels world, saves the girl, hunts down a bad guy and in the end there are great chase scenes and intelligent dialogue.
This movie won’t win an Oscar. And who cares? Movies are a great escape, and James Bond does not disappoint.
