Vacuous. Empty. Vapid.

Like the gorgeous bimbo who looks good but whom you wish would never speak, ever, because there is nothing happening on the inside, Quauntum of Solace is big on special effects and eye candy, but falls very short of an interesting or even a decent plot.

Probably my least favorite Bond movie since Moonraker.

Also, poor choice for a Bond girl, no offense Olga, and the fake tan they slapped on her to make her look Bolivian was awful. A much better choice for the prominent role of chief Bond girl would have been Gemma Arterton who unfortunately was only on screen for 7 1/2 seconds.
6.0 out of 10

Okay I gotta disagree with you on this one. I loved this Bond flick. Best one in years, tons of action and a good story.

it had great action. some of the best. but that story... i know bond movies don't usually have the most believable plots, but at least they were interesting.
