Quantum of Solace

Come on, it's not that bad! I don't remember anything about Casino Royale and I think I liked that one and this one about the same. The main girl is a terrible actress and doesn't seem that tough (stop crying Secret Service from Bolivia and you've never killed anyone? In this Bond world? Does that make sense? I know Britain has to deal with a lot more internal struggle and violence than... Hmmm) or sexy. Those acne scars on her back through me off. The villain is a bad actor and doesn't live up to his own tough talk. But the movie is fun, Daniel Craig is badass and that opera scene is killer. I read a comment on /film that it was too much like Untouchables but I don't see that. Untouchables best scene was an homage to Potemkin anyway. If you think you might like QoS you probably will. It's pretty cool.
