i think there is a lot of pressure on quantum of solace to deliver because of the sucess of casino royale. the movie is a good continuation of casino royale but it would stand as a great movie by itself also. it has all the right ingriedients but it adds a few new ones which make it all the better, for example its the shortest bond film ever made but it doesnt hurt the movie at all. i think the franchise will be sucessfull with daniel craig as bond so i loved the film and u should go see it. daniel graig adds a breath of fresh air to the franchise and the casting for all the movies has been superb all around. quantum of solace is taking oo7 in a new direction for the better it seems. but of course every movie has its flaws but to some those flaws are the very thing that makes the movie unique and different from the other 21 that came before it.
