QUAN­TUM OF SO­LACE

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES PICK OF THE WEEK -

SEVEN, Satur­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2008)

Re­viv­ing the grit and de­tach­ment that made Casino Royale the best James Bond film in many years, Daniel Craig ( left) re­turns in his sec­ond out­ing as the 00- agent. Di­rec­tor Marc Forster ( Monster’s Ball) seems in­tent on cram­ming as much as he can into this rel­a­tively short film, with Bond in pur­suit of a vil­lain ( Mathieu Amal­ric) who killed his lover. All of the el­e­ments of a good Bond film are present, but fol­low­ing Quan­tum of So­lace can be a dis­ori­ent­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, from its choppy ac­tion se­quences to its triv­ial sto­ry­line. Judi Dench puts in a fine turn as agency head M.
