MOVIE REVIEW - Quantum Of Solace (The Film)

So I recently got to see the new Bond flick last night... and I liked it.

As a direct sequel to Casino Royale, the story pretty much picks up where that one left off, with Bond wanting revenge for the death of that chick who betrayed him... um yeah, that makes sense. Didn't he say "the bitch is dead" in the last flick? Um, never mind. Logic aside, the movie has Bond going around the world killing leads all the while trying to get a clue as to who the organization is... or something. You know what, who cares? It's a movie with some explosions, some action, some seducing ladies to bed, and a lady drowned in oil... because apparently Goldfinger isn't available to supply gold paint... or whatever.

Despite my snarky comments, I really enjoyed the flick as a sequel. Is it as good as Casino? Probably not... I thought there were a couple of problems with the movie that kept it down a notch. For one thing, the final moments of the film pass by so quickly that you're left somewhat unsatisfied... and there're still some unanswered questions that they most likely will resolve in the next film... I know, it's shameful.

Overall, it's a good movie and I recommend it.
