A gun barrel wavers across the screen. Judi Dench struts smartly across the white background from left to right. Suddenly she turns on one high-heel and whips a Walther PPK from under her blazer and snaps off a round at the camera. The gun barrel shakes, blood pours, and we are into the pre-title chase sequence of Quantum of Solace, the 22nd James Bond adventure. Dench speeds down a narrow winding mountain road, hot on the trail of an awol 007. Seems Bond is stirring up a rebellion against female authority in South America which threatens to spread all over the world, and she is going to put a stop to it even if it means turning him over her knee ... Just kidding, of course.

If they are no longer accessible in a couple of weeks I will post excerpts from the ones I saved. I admit I like the sound of some of these reviews. What some critics see as faults, sound more like virtues to me. But there are definitely some comments about the film that are disappointing to learn in these reviews.
