Quantum of Solace

2.5/5

Yeah…a little voice told me that I probably shouldn’t waste my money on this movie, but I did anyway. I guess I was hoping for a pleasant surprise. My expectations weren’t very high, so it wasn’t exactly terrible, but it wasn’t very engaging either. It felt like an overly long introduction to another movie. Nothing really substantial happens, and I found myself not really giving a damn about any of the characters.

And the intro…maybe I’m just being too harsh, but it made me acutely conscious to the age-old phallic symbolism of guns. Watching him shoot off his rounds in slow-mo (pewwwww) just didn’t seem very cool. Maybe I’ve been watching too much chicky stuff lately.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen it yet, this Family Guy clip pretty much summarizes the movie with 90% accuracy.
