Number 1000!!! Friday, October 28th - Larry H. publishes his one thousandth movie review 1997-2022
  
Quantum of Solace
Released:  November 14, 2008
I knew I was in trouble when I started getting bored after only three minutes. The opening chase scene with guns and leaping to and from tall buildings and killing bad guys was ok and then it got real slow.

This Bond movie is a Quantum of Crap. I've been a Bond fan since I was a freshman in high school and I've seen them all and I'll see them in the future, but this Bond's a Bust!

Let's do it by the numbers:

0 - characters I liked

0 - hot chicks worthy of Ms. Galore

0 - cool guns; I'm tired of his pea-shooter Walther PPK; a man needs at least a 9MM and his style of gun should be a 1911 if he's going into the field. A PPK is ok if you're shooting bad guys in a bedroom or even a ballroom, but please don't take that sissy gun into the field.

106 - number of painful minutes I sat through this pitiful excuse for a Bond movie

Daniel Craig returns as 007 secret Agent James Bond and he's sad because his lover is dead and so he wants some revenge. I get that, but mix in a little fun, Dude. This Bond was too morose, melancholy, and mean.

Judith Dench returns as M and she's actually a bright spot of the movie. How she managed to make her character interesting in this Bond Bomb is beyond me; maybe she's a great actress. Hmmmmm?

The cars weren't even cool but please note I think I spotted the new Toyota iQ that is scheduled to debut in Europe in January 2009. When your cars and guns are not cool and your women are not hot, Houston, we have a problem. Rock 'n Roll.

Grade 69. Larry H.
