I thought it was fire. Although it was much shorter than the 1st it did wrap up his story with Mr. White and Vesper. Now maybe the next one will be much longer since there will probably be a whole new plot, characters, group of villains.

Btw the 1080p bluray rip of this movie hit the scene. Watching it now on the PS3.

This review was taken from another board but I agree 100%

As someone who grew up watching Bond, QoS not only didn't live up to my expectations, it didn't even live up to the expectations of what a Bond film is supposed to be. Honestly, if the man's name wasn't Bond and there was no opening title sequence, you never would've thought this was a Bond film.

First of all, there was way too much action to cover the absolutely paper-thin plot of the 100 minute length. I'm a fan of action as much as the next guy, but the Bond series are not supposed to be all about action. James Bond is not an action hero in the traditional sense. He doesn't attract violence nor does he employ it for kicks. He uses it as a means to an end if it has to come to that. James Bond is supposed to be a "s3xist, misogynist dinosaur," as M puts it in GoldenEye. He is supposed to be suave, sophisticated, and have a tongue-in-cheek approach rather than be some tough, grimy rogue who merely expels anything that stands in his way. That's not the Bond that I grew up with.

The screenplay is the real disappointment here, with the inconsequential plot serving as an excuse for Bond to move from one action set piece to another. The entire undertaking comes off as a blur of chase scenes and a showcase of stunts involving planes, boats and automobiles.

It also doesn't help that the frenetic cuts make the action scenes incomprehensible for the most part. Despite the exotic locations and impressive shots, the lack of any sophistication and wit make the whole thing seem rather trivial. This adds to the effect of the film being one long, mindless action film

Even the Bond girl was dull and uninspired. Besides her not even having a memorable name, she just comes across as a flat character throughout the whole film. Even in those paltry moments where you learn more about her past, Olga's acting just didn't do it for me. When you finally learn that she's actually a Bolivian agent, you could care less. It also didn't help that she and Bond had no chemistry whatsoever.

Then there's the villain. There was so much potential in Dominic Greene to be one of the great Bond villains, but instead he's totally wasted. Just as you start to admire his maniacal presence, he's already f!ghting Bond in the last f!ght scene. And what the hell was up with his "twisted scheme" in the first place? Let me get this straight. He wanted to control Bolivia's water supply. Really? That's it?! Am I missing something here?

I think all of these elements just adds to the fact that the movie lacked any substance and character development whatsoever. It felt more like a side-story to Casino Royale than a new installment to the franchise. For a movie as hyped as this one, I was extremely disappointed.

6/10

The fact he made a review without first knowing what the actual plot is makes it pointless and lame. Bolivian water
