Recently viewed: "Quantum of Solace"

"Quantum of Solace"

Is this the worst Bond movie ever?  I know that's saying a lot, but still...

Daniel Craig still makes a fine Bond, and Judi Dench has certainly handled the role of "M" well, but for a movie that depends on have to be able to see the action!  The film and editing style is such that every single action scene is confusing. 

The plot is no worse than many a Bond film, though it still isn't that clear what the Quantum organization really wants.  It's really a revenge film masquerading as a Bond film.  I have a bit of a problem with that (one of my complaints with "Casino Royale" is that the filmmakers didn't have the courage to end the movie as Fleming did the book) but can understand it.  I just want to be able to understand the fight and chase scenes.
