That’s the grade I’m comfortable giving right now. It was good, and much pithier than I expected it to be, considering the habit these days to film long, contorted storylines. I liked the plot, especially the anti-imperialism/anti-corporation concept that made you think about the interests of your government versus the best interests of the people. That sounds trite, I’m sure — but I don’t want to give away the whole movie. Go see it. If you live in Athens, Ohio it’s only $6.50 for a ticket (!).
The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was the mini-story involving Strawberry Fields. You get the sense that they cut a scene or two there.
Quantum of Solace — B+
Daniel Craig — A +
