This movie was awesome.

If you're planning on going to see it, watch Casino Royale first - there's a lot of references and I forgot what a few of them were about.

I thought it was ok, I liked Casino Royale better

If more of the movie had been like the opera scene I think that would have made for a better movie..for me it was a bit of a mess I didn't like the villain either, I thought he was sort of lame

Greene was one of the better villains in the series' history, if only because, you know... they actually cast a talented actor in the role.

I liked it. Don't listen 2 the reviews.... it works as an epilogue 2 Casino Royale, and closes that part of Bond's life in a satisfactory manner, at least 2 me.

I agree with your assessment regarding Bond's character development from Casino Royale 2 Quantum of Solace. If I were going 2 take a guess as 2 what the next film would pertain 2, I'd wager that after this return 2 the Bond persona we're all familar with, the films might go back 2 a lighter tone. The producer will likely respond 2 the complains of how this Bond seems 2 cold, 2 humorless, 2 similar to the Bourne series, and will probably respond 2 peoples concerns that the action in QoS was edited 2 fast and 2 furious for most people's liking. Expectations were probably just 2 high though in the end. But I got what I wanted for the most part, essentially a Casino Royale 2.

Saw it last night and thought it was fantastic. Casino Royale had the freshness of a new actor & new take on the series, as well as the eye-popping hotness of Vesper, but I thought this one actually was a better and more interesting film. I wholeheartedly disagree with the critics who say that it isn't a Bond film----unless they're narrowly defining a Bond film only as a cheesy flick with absurd sexual puns and wacky gadgets. The sex-god portion of Bond's character came through just fine. The action was excellent (opera scene ) and has every right to be in a Bond film. The plot was sensible, and should be taken at its big picture value, not the face value. People who left my screening complaining about the movie were talking about not understanding how owning water in Bolivia had any global impact. They completely missed the fact that it's an example of what Greene is doing and could do around the world to gain money and power. The real villain in the film isn't even Greene---it's the mysterious arch-nemesis group Quantum, the emergence of which we get to see in teasing tidbits. Anticipating the details of Quantum was kind of like watching a season of Lost (the good parts, anyway)---you know there's some greater power/mystery at work, and you're getting the clues in tantalizing morsels one at a time.

I could go on, but I guess I should work...

I wrote a fairly lengthy, rambling, glowing review for it in my school's paper. I may post it in here when I get a copy back to my computer.

The spaz-cam in action sequences is nauseating and ridiculous. Why on earth are people still doing this shit? The majority of people hate it. Hopefully we'll have another director next time and preferably going back to a Commonwealth director again.

The song at the beginning is horrendous and possibly the worst Bond song ever. There's no chorus and the vocals stink. Guitar is good mind you.

Any Bond is good....we just want the best every time. Unfortunately this one didn't quite do it for me.

You know, going into this movie, I thought the song would be terrible, but it wasn't that bad. Alicia Keys and Jack White together is one of the strangest pairings I've ever heard, but I still dug White's sections and his production of it.

It's certainly better than the "From Russia with Love" theme.

Watched it, thought it was pretty good. As a few people here have said, it serves very well as an epilogue to the previous film. The plot was kind of sketchy initially, but once Greene turned up in that place in the middle of the desert it all came together quite well.

I'm still kind of mystified as to the existence of Quantum though. I'm guessing we'll be seeing more of that in subsequent films?
