No offense to Daniel Craig, but I'm more of a fan of action movies when they a) involve crazy scheming and plotting, or b) use wacky technology like a wrist watch that shoots lasers.
Plus, in Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig plays a more rough and tumble kind of James Bond, which isn't exactly my cup of tea. Of course, that's just me -- a lot of people love this version of James Bond more than the Bond portrayed by actors like Pierce Brosnan.
Even without all the cool, crazy gadgets, the action scenes were pretty fantastic and definitely kept my interest. That said, I found the rest of the movie to be a bit slow. The "bad guy," Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), was anything but evil; in fact he was pretty bland for a villain.
When all's said and done, Quantum of Solace is a James Bond movie, which makes it a movie you have to see, even if it means you'll take a snooze through it here and there (like I did). Plus, I usually buy DVDs for the special features, and the Quantum of Solace DVD comes with a ton of them, from music videos to a 24-minute special feature about Bond on location. -- Jacki Garfinkel
