Quantum: noun, quantity or amount. Solace: noun, comfort in sorrow, misfortune, or trouble; alleviation of distress or discomfort.

In 2006 we got a new take on an old hero with James Bond in Casino Royale, but while the film told of the spy’s first adventure questions were left unanswered. Who were the mysterious people to whom Le Chiffre owed money? Who is the mysterious employer behind Mr. White? These answers were to be revealed two years later in the follow-up film Quantum of Solace. With Daniel Craig returning and a title taken from an original Fleming story, can this film live up to the high praise given to Casino Royale? Listen to Arnie, Stuart, and Brock’s review to find out in Now Playing’s penultimate James Bond review leading directly to this year’s blockbuster Skyfall!
