Quantum Of Solace, the latest James Bond is set for release at Sterkinekor movie cinema’s across South Africa on Wednesday 19th November 2008 and is set to pull in crowds of people from all over the country. This follow-up to the first 007 film starring Daniel Craig as the popular secret agent in Casino Royale sees him pursuing his determination to uncover the truth after the death of his lover.
Many will appreciate that Quantum Of Solace portrays James Bond in a continually different direction than the agent of old and the new movie presents us with the satisfyingly solid crunch of metal on metal as real cars, boats and planes collide. The rougher, tougher style of 007 has become believable thanks to Daniel Craig’s natural rough and buff looks and appearance.
The title song is by Jack White and Alicia Keyes which seems a little anachronistic when you first hear it but it is a perfect hark back to the origins of Bond in the early 1960’s. Similarly the new noir take on the franchise is closer to the tone of the original novels than ever before.
This sequel to Casino Royale is slick and visually entertaining even though there are fans who will no doubt miss the tongue-in-cheek trademarks of the Roger Moore type agent. We feel that 007 has become a great action hero for grown-ups so if you get the opportunity, head on down to your nearest Sterkinekor Movies to catch Quantum Of Solace, the latest James Bond flik, as soon as you get the chance.
