'Quantum of Solace' starts with a trademark action sequence involving cars burning rubber around narrow roads and then proceeds to jump from one thrill to another, while moving through locations like pages in a travel brochure. A major plus is Amalric's turn as the villain Dominic Greene, head of an organisation which exploits energy resources for financial and political gain who are behind an American approved coup in Bolivia. Although the overarching themes are intriguing, some of the plot points don't make much sense.
