Gender politics has always been at the beating heart of horror. While it could be argued that cinema as a whole is preoccupied with the white male experience, no other genre gouges such an indelible gender divide. Scary movies usually embrace the tired tropes of man as predator,  [ ... ]


Quantum of Solace (DVD)

DVD

More premium Bond...

Following on from his stonking turn in 2006’s Casino Royale, in which he reinvented James Bond for a whole new generation, Daniel Craig is back in 007 in this equally as action-packed sequel.

Picking up where Royale left off, we see Bond fuelled by grief for his lost love Vesper (Eva Green), determined to find out the truth behind her death. His investigation leads him to industrial environmentalist Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), who is not the humanitarian he appears. Along the way, Bond is joined by Camille (Olga Kurylenko) a desperate, determined woman out for her own personal revenge… New director Marc Forster (The Kite Runner) concentrates on Bond’s action hero credentials, with rooftop chases, jaw-dropping aeroplane stunts and speedboat shenanigans a-plenty. Craig’s Bond is dripping with fury, aggressive in his actions and teetering on a psychological edge that leaves M (Dench) questioning his agent status.

The only real issue is that Quantum feels like the middle of a story, never really reaching a satisfying conclusion despite its explosive climax. But that’s the point; Bond is being further shaped into the character we’ve always known, and will most definitely be back to fight another day. 4 stars
