    grin Movie Review: Quantum Of Solace

    Quantum of Solace, yet another action packed Bond thriller, revolves around James Bond trying to avenge the murder of Vesper, his girlfriend. While doing so, he fights an environmentalist who intends to stage a coup and take over the water supply of the whole Bolivia. The film is written by Paul Haggis and Neal Purvis who have done a brilliant job by writing dialogues which suit Daniel Craig's persona and the elegance of the Bond character. Unlike Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace is based on revenge, so it required more vengeance and fury in the character which was very nicely carried out by Daniel. He proves he is an excellent replacement for Pierce Brosnan because he has the attitude that is required for a 007 character.

    Like all other Bond films the cinematography of the film is commendable. Roberto Schaefer, the cinematographer of the film has done a brilliant job with the camera by beautifully shooting the sequences in scenic locations like Panama, Chile, Italy and Austria. An interesting trend that can be seen in the Bond films is that as the franchise is becoming more modern, the audience can relate to the Bond character more. If you compare Roger Moore and Sean Connery to Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, you'll see that although the acting standards have decreased, the Bond that Daniel Craig plays is more reachable for common man.

    Overall, the movie is not very outstanding, but it definitely has something unique to offer to the Bond fans. However, there is one thing which is missing in this Bond movie; it has very little of flirtation and heat in the dialogues. This is surely something that the viewer looks forward to in any Bond film, as action sequences and car chases can be seen in every action film, but the boldness of Bond is something that is rare. Despite that, the best part of the film is that it runs for more than 100 minutes but manages to keep the audience engaged till the end.

    Theme Song

    The Bond theme songs -- usually heard during the title sequence of the movies -- have been performed by some of the world's most well-known singers, included Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Carly Simon, Madonna, and Chris Cornell. None, however, has been the subject of more speculation than the theme for Quantum of Solace. Originally assigned to Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson, the project was ultimately scrapped, after which singers including Duffy and Leona Lewis were thought to be working on the track.

    Ultimately, it was Jack White and Alicia Keys who came up with what would be the first duet in the Bond film history. Another Way to Die received mixed and generally polarised -- reviews from Bond fans upon its release. Here's what Pakistani musicians had to say about the song:

    Safyan Kakakhel (Underground musician): Bond themes have always struck me as very peculiar and unusual, and that's what's always worked for them. In that vein this theme song works well for the movie. Even though I'm not really the biggest fan of the song, the collaboration between two of the biggest stars of recent times is very interesting and the music and lyrics of the song go well with the general Bond theme.

    Nausher Javed (Inteha guitarist): When someone told me to listen to the latest James Bond theme song, I thought it would reflect the charm and attitude of James Bond (like the themes usually do), but after listening to it, I think it is the worst James Bond themes compared to the previous ones. Alicia Keys and Jack White ruined the whole image of James Bond by their bad production and bad arrangement. So thumbs down.

    well, what I think is this bond movie is somewhat different from many perspectives from the previous ones, although in this movie bond seems to be very angry everytime which is rightly accroding to his role and the demand of role but in bond movies you had a chance to see something innovative, innovative in a sense that new technological things and modern/future intelligence tools. As far as the theme is concerned its was not good nor bad you can say average and theme animation was totally worst. For me so far best eheme animation was of "Die Another Day".

    Over all movie is not that good, its an average movie........
