Movie Review: Quantum of Solace: Lifeless execution

Olga Kurylenko is the new bond girl

Daniel Craig is one good actor, and most of the time he does his own stunts. He is Bond, James Bond for the second time and the results here are worse than the first movie - Casino Royale. The story does have potential but what a waste!

Casino Royale was a mildly entertaining film about Bond's early years, and this one continues the story set up in the first one. Except, there is a new villain and a new girl here.

The acting is great, but the director spoils it all, the engaging moments are so rare, you almost beg for some life. The action scenes are shot in such a manner that you have to be gulp down style without any logical threads to it.

Craig and company need a great director and a tough screenplay in the next one. Financial success may come, but what about storytelling?

At you own risk, viewers...

Mathieu Amalric plays the Bond villain with amazing ease
