Quantum of Solace – Like or dislike? I dunno.. I’m torn!


Over the weekend, hubby and I went to see Quantum of Solace, the latest film in the James Bond series.  I can’t decide if I liked it or not.  It was pretty much a follow-up to Casino Royale, which I did like.  There were plenty of action scenes, but they all felt like they were incredibly close up and hard to make out exactly what was going on in them.  Also, I do think that Daniel Craig makes a good James, but I don’t think that James Bond should appear so dirty and nitty gritty all the time.

James should be debonair, ya know the whole “I just killed 18 baddies, but I’ve changed into my tux and I have no blood on me and I’m sitting at the bar now with my Bond Girl on my arm drinking a martini!”  Maybe that’s how us girls want to see the movies, and the guys are actually enjoying a dirtier version.  The story line wasn’t all that either, they have better spy plots in “Chuck” for heaven sake!  Like I said, I’m torn on it… it was worth seeing to get the closure on the last movie, but wasn’t what I would call the best movie ever.

Maybe next time we can have the sexy, cleaner, debonair Bond who doesn’t look like he bought his clothes at the local Walmart and maybe a well defined Bond Girl to boot!  Just a thought…

I will have to say, I’m digging the song though!
