So I got chance to see Bond a little early, working in the cinema industry has its advantages! Well that and getting paid to watch it.
So before I start I wanted to talk about the Jack White and Alicia Keys new Bond song Another way to die, I first heard it about 6 weeks ago and didn’t like it at all, it just didn’t sound right even with Jack Whites magic on the strings but then I watch the film and its like a switch when off in my head, after seeing the film the song has completely changed in my perception, its just fantastic, its just the song a Bond film needed.
Ok the film, lets not kid ourselves its not going to be a Casino Royal, that film completely re invented Bond and in a good way. After we all had seen Casino Royal our expectations had been changed so to have the same impact with Quantum was going to be hard. The film starts exactly one hour after the last left off and this fits in very well and it almost like you just jump straight in to the action with no need of a refresher. From the first frame to the last Quantum is far more action than the last, its not as in-depth as the last and I thought had less of a storyline, I even found the sub story slightly more interesting than the main story.
Don’t get me wrong, its just a wonderful film, give it a few months and get both Casino and Quantum watch them back to back and it would be one of the best Bond film fest ever.
