QUANTUM OF ASS-KICKING
LOVED the new James Bond adventure. Cut from the same cloth as Paul Greengrass' THE BOURNEL ULTIMATUM, Marc Forster's QUANTUM OF SOLACE (****) is the best action picture of the year. Daniel Craig owns the role of Bond. Tight scripting and even tighter direction really propel this hard-edged movie; it's the darkest Bond yet. I found the film to be very stylish in an artsy, unique way and extremely kinetic with its cinematography and editing decisions. My full review will be posted soon, but I really, really had fun with this film and I can't wait to see it again. It's a rush. And what an explosive finale.
