James Bond - Quantum of Solace

Daniel Craig is not James Bond and this is not really a James Bond film, only the names have been used for marketing purposes. The film has high action scene production value but low story line value. I would say that it is fun to watch, as a series of set pieces. I admit up front that Sean Connery remains my preferred Bond and From Russia with Love my favorite film from the series. This latest Bond lacks any degree of sophistication, a trait that provided most of the humor and character found in earlier Bonds. In Craig's defense, I believe he could do some fine acting in films with an actual story line and perhaps character development. The film was recommended (and loaned) to me by someone fascinated by fight sequences.
