Quantum of Solace......

Everyone's talking about it. My female colleagues was gossiping about Daniel Craig about how macho and hansem he was in the movie, my male mates were drooling over the Aston Martin DB9 and Olga Kurylenko, the lastest Bond gurl. So, curious me made an appointment with my office mate to go watch the movie late last nite.



The latest James Bond movie Quantum of Solace is the continuation of Casino Royale. But I was utterly dissapointed with the movie due to several reasons :-
1.The movie theatre was packed to the brim and the air-cond wasnt working that well.
2.There were "stupid and absent-minded" people talking on the phone aloud, smoking and smooching in the theatre.
3.There were gluttons munching their goodies and slurping their drinks aloud just next to me.
4.There was a very big hairy guy sitting behind me knocking on my seat every 5 minutes even though I stared at him for like....forever.
5.It was raining and I was supposed to be sleeping.
6.My 3 cups of sweet corn was tasteless and uncooked....and the list goes on.
*
I guess it is unfair of me to say that the movie was boring becoz of all the disfunctional people in the theatre. Anyways, Quantum of Solace has its fair share of exitement. I would say that the earlier part of the movie where 2 Alpha Romeos was chasing Bond in his saliva dropping Aston Marin gave me a lil adrenaline rush....but it ended up too quickly. Bond had always been dressed up in expensive suits right from his head to his toes. But I think only an insane person would want to wear a suit in the middle of the dessert. The director should've asked him to take it off and bare a lil of his chest hairs for the ladies to drool over. And as always, Bond's associates were with the ladies, of which our Jabatan Perfileman Negara had eagerly censored. A number of parts were abruptly cut...which was an utter turn off. I'd give the movie a 5/10 unlike some Bond followers who would gladly give full marks.

Get the uncut one, play on your own DVD player in the room with a blue mountain coffee and a piece of tiramisu on you hands might give you a better review ha..ha.. anyway You're rite! he's not as cool as Pierce Brosnan nor Timothy Dalton, and the action wasn't that 'wow' anymore..

All your grouses about the inconsiderate/stupid M'sians in cinemas are not new -i encounter my fair share of them too! Another thing i hate is when they bring small kids who whine & cry or run around in the cinema! Anyway, comin back to the movie - i thot it was pretty crappy. Lost plot, dirty messy haggard hero, sexciting scenes butchered, only 1 short glamorous car scene, no witty humour and the Bond gal was frowning/bent on revenge all the time (forget about the other one - she looked so fake, good thing she was killed off early)...etc etc! Give me Pierce anytime, man!

Calvin Soo KJ said...

raynebow, yah. it was crappy. particularly those a-holes who added salt to injury. never thought of stuffing a bond gal with black oil inside out. kinky...:P

somehow I don't like this new Bond image. I still prefer Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery (but he's too old for this role now XD).

but I will try to catch this movie.

cleffairy said...

No lehh... hair chest turns me off... LOL... I just like Pierce Brosnan's face... :-P looks more handsome lah! Give me anyone but Danial Craig... huhuhuhu! Sean Connery, Roger Moore...but not Danial Craig....

TOM CRUISE FOR BOND! (Too bad he's oredi in mission Impossible... *sigh*)

garfield said...

Honestly, Daniel Craig is the most useless Jame Bond ever.

Other James Bond destroyed their car is not because of accident, but they destroyed it intentionally.
But this James Bond destroyed his cars due to accident, lol. It is stupid!

And the most important thing this, I dun think he is macho or handsome, even the stray dog that live on the street near my house is more macho than him. If wan to say macho, Pierce Bronsnan, Sean Conery are macho. Even the ugliest Jame Bond b4 this (Timothy Dalton) also looks better than him.

And I am very disappointed that the production team go and use old books which published 1950's for new movies, common lar, the technology now is so advance already, showing 1950's technology is a joke. But it do suits Daniel Craig lar, hahahaha

The only thing I like in this James Bond movie is his gun, Walter P99.

aiyo... movie review blog pulak?

This is one of the worst bond movies ever.... no doubt they have done away with the tech gizmo stuff etc... the movie somehow I felt was made just becoz they need to do a bond movie. Disappointing to say the least.

So far, the best and most entertaining... must be Mamma Mia... tho Pierce Brosnan's singing is not desirable, the movie was very entertaining... being an AbbA freak myself, loved every song.

Calvin Soo KJ said...

clef, ah....ladies. :)

mjoe, i think they did not find a replacement for the old professor since he passed on. ive not watched mama mia. hmmmmm....everyone seems to talk about mama mia. have not watched it yet. will get the dvd. cheers bro... :)

cleffairy said...
