"In QUANTUM OF SOLACE, the stunts are as muscular and the film as handsome to look at as the hero who so ably pulls them off."USA Today "What about the villain? One of the best in a while...thanks to a lizardy turn from the great French actor Mathieu Amalric....The supporting cast is studded with equally excellent performers, including Jeffrey Wright and Giancarlo Giannini..."New York Times 3 stars out of 5 -- "Here, Bond is sharper, more angular, a tumbling knife of ire and intent. All the same gristle and bristle, but now glinting with inner steel."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "We get striking locations and absolutely gorgeous, stylised art direction....Daniel Craig continues to be his own man as Bond..."Empire "QUANTUM OF SOLACE is the finest installment in the storied franchise's 22-film history....Director Marc Forster has crafted a stylish 007 adventure that's both brutal and light on its feet."Premiere "The meanest and leanest James Bond film yet, QUANTUM OF SOLACE is a breathless splash of high-speed action that hurtles from one reckless chase to another."Hollywood Reporter24.18473
