Tagline: It’d be a pretty cold bastard who didn’t want revenge for someone he loves.
Translation: Oh, you fuckers are in for it now.
The Verdict: The latest trailer for Quantum of Solace tones down the kick-assery in lieu of actual plot points. So yes, you will have to remember what happened in Casino Royale — but not much more than that Bond’s girlfriend died, and he’s not quite ready to let it go. Along with a foxy sidekick — also filled with inconsolable rage over the loss of a loved one, but not quite as good at killing people — Bond takes on a shadowy organization that wants to control, uh, something, is tangentially related to Royale’s bad guys, and is fronted by rad French actor Mathieu Amalric, who can almost make clunkers like “We’ve already begun destabilizing the government” sound good. We can’t wait!
