Quote :
Whilst no elements of the original short story are utilised in the film, there are certainly Flemingesque elements. Camille Montes is a classic Fleming 'wounded bird'. Although a drop-dead beauty, Camille is humanised by a Flemingesque physical defect: a scarred back courtesy of Medrano leaving 'his mark' on her when she was a child.

If I read "Fleming-esque" one more bloody time i will kill.

Well, I admire the effort.

But I maintain that if you need six thousand words to explain why something is good, it frankly isn't.

Quantum of Solace is a fundamentally flawed film for the following five reasons:

1) it has a muddled and poorly paced plot;
2) a cast of unmemorable cut-out characters who have shallow depth and little defining characteristics;
3) poor direction that leans on scenery chewing and melodrama, and prioritises metaphor over comprehension in the action sequences;
4) a script riddled with limp dialogue and a disheartening lack of self-awareness and wit;
5) uninspired action setpieces.

Bond is an action series, you can forgive one or two of these, but not all in combination.

1. No it's not.
2. They're all memorable - especially Fields and Medrano - and I've give praise to Almaric and Taibaum for creating an interesting dynamic between Greene and Elvis.
3. I wouldn't say melodrama. Scenes which elucidate Camille's back story has restraint, and Bond's scene on there plane with the martinis and Mathis can only be done in such a fashion.
4. The dialogue is great I think - not the best in the series, especially compared to DAF, FRWL and TB, but it's light years better than DAD and CR.
5. I actually loved all the action sequences in QOS.

Even the ending of the boatchase which nobody seems to explain?

The freefall with one parachute is that is frankly impossible (the invisible car seems to be more possible!)

And all actionscenes from the Bourne-movies are better cut, planned, understandable and visually exciting, and not nicked from another movie.

QoS, the movie offers not a quantum of solace to the audience that paid money to see it.
