With the imminent release of Skyfall, pretty much every article or review that gushes its praise includes the phrase “…after the disappointing Quantum of Solace…” and frankly, I’m getting sick of it.
Since day one I’ve championed Quantum of Solace, and I reckon it’s a fantastic addition to the series- it deserves more credit than it gets- much more. I’m not saying it’s the best in the series- it’s not, but it’s better than a lot of the other entries (can you really say it’s worse than Die Another Day or A View To A Kill?). I’m proud to say I like the title, and I love the idea of Quantum buying up as much of the water supply as they can- it’s a dash of science-fiction that makes me desperate for Craig to face them in Bond 24. I like pretty much everything about the film.
So, hopefully I can persuade you to give QoS another shot before sitting down to Skyfall.
