I didn’t enjoy Quantum of Solace when I first saw it at the cinema a few years ago. I thought it was a dud.
Last night, Casino Royale was shown on the television here in Australia. Tonight I followed that with Quantum of Solace as a prelude to seeing Skyfall in a few weeks time (it doesn’t open here until November 22).
It was a lot better than I remember. I think the key was watching it straight after Casino Royale. One follows the other. Casino stands well as a movie on it’s own. IMHO, Quantum doesn’t. But watched together, the second one finally works.
Just had to write this down lest I forget in a few years from now.
Here’s the opening car chase. Those Alfas die well.
