Review: Quantum of Solace

"Quantum of Solace" raked in $70-million in its first weekend on the big screen—nearly double the take of the last Bond films, “Casino Royale” and “Die Another Day.” Daniel Craig earned his pay, doing many of his own stunts, which frankly made my palms sweat.

This movie is being criticized by some—including former Bond-man Roger Moore—as being too violent. Like listening to rock music—if it’s too loud, you’re too old.

Other critics are harping on the female lead, Olga Kurykenko—not enough sparks with Bond, or portraying her culture in an unflattering way.

I’ll tell who I’d like to see as the next Bond Girl---Alicia Keys—who’s the featured co-vocalist on this edition’s opening theme song.
Keys is already out in a film this month, “The Secret Life of Bees…” that look she can throw you should be licensed by Her Majesty’s Secret Service as a weapon in its own right.
