.Jasper Conran designed Camille's casual clothes and gold necklace, while Chrome Hearts designed gothic jewellery for Amalric's character, which the actor liked enough to keep after filming.^ I think it was a genius decision by the Bond people to cast a well known character actor like Daniel Craig to be the new James Bond.

.Forster preferred the idea of Bond hanging from ropes reaching for his gun to kill Mitchell, rather than having both men run out of the building to continue their chase as specified in the script, and the number of effects shots increased.^ But Forster is biding his time with this skittish prelude: we emerge into the crowd for a chase on foot, across rooftops, and down some scaffolding in a church, and the ensuing scramble with ropes, swinging girders, and out-of-reach revolvers leaves you gasping with its constricted tension and vertigo.

To film the aerial dogfight, a "Snakehead" camera was built and placed on the nose and tail of a Piper Aerostar 700. SolidWorks, who provided the software used to design the camera, stated "pilots for the first time can fly as aggressively as they dare without sacrificing the drama of the shot." The camera could turn 360 degrees and was shaped like a periscope.[90] The crew also mounted SpaceCams on helicopters, and placed cameras with 1600 mm lenses underground, to cover the action.[52] .Forster wanted to film the planefight as a homage to Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest, and chose planes like the Douglas DC-3 to suit that.^ One of the reasons I wanted to work with Dennis was because he created looks that you have never seen before in films like THE TRUMAN SHOW and his work with the Coen Brothers.

^ The producers have promised QUANTUM OF SOLACE will have twice as much action as CASINO ROYALE, for Gary Powell that means twice as many stunts.

Editing

After the first screening, Forster cut out a minute-long coda to the film's ending where Bond encounters Mr. White again. .The director left it out to give the next film's director a chance to tell his own story, as including the scene would have forced them to make Bond 23 another direct sequel.^ I would give it a 4,5 out of 5, always in the context of Bond movies, of course.

Kim Newman of Empire gave it 4/5, remarking it was not "bigger and better than Casino Royale, [which is] perhaps a smart move in that there's still a sense at the finish that Bond’s mission has barely begun." However, he expressed nostalgia for the more humorous Bond films.[125] The Sunday Times review noted that "[f]ollowing Casino Royale was never going to be easy, but the director Marc Forster has brought the brand’s successful relaunch crashing back to earth — with a yawn"; the screenplay "is at times incomprehensible" and the casting "is a mess." The review concludes that "Bond has been stripped of his iconic status. He no longer represents anything particularly British, or even modern. In place of glamour, we get a spurious grit; instead of style, we get product placement; in place of fantasy, we get a redundant and silly realism."[126]
.The Guardian gave a more positive review, rating it as 3/5 stars, and was particularly fond of Craig's performance, saying he "made the part his own, every inch the coolly ruthless agent-killer, nursing a broken heart and coldly suppressed rage" and calling the film "a crash-bang Bond, high on action, low on quips, long on location glamour, short on product placement"; it concludes "Quantum of Solace isn't as good as Casino Royale: the smart elegance of Craig's Bond debut has been toned down in favour of conventional action.^ This film should have been as good as Casino Royale but its just not.

But the man himself powers this movie; he carries the film: it's an indefinably difficult task for an actor. Craig measures up."[127]
.Screen Daily says "Notices will focus - rightly - on Craig's magnetism as the steely, sexy, murderous MI6 agent, but two other factors weigh in and freshen up proceedings: Forster's new technical team, led by cinematographer Roberto Schaefer and production designer Dennis Gassner.^ Gassner joined the team early in pre-production and explains how he began the task of designing a project the size of QUANTUM OF SOLACE; “When I first started, I viewed the film as a blank canvas.

^ Early in pre-production, Gassner received a phone call from Daniel Craig.

^ Dennis Gassner was requested by Marc Forster (Director) to bring his signature stylistic set design to QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Gassner describes his first meeting; “When I first met Marc with Michael and Barbara [the producers], I’d seen his films and, as a person, he was amazing to be with.

.And the ongoing shift of M, as played by Judi Dench, to front and centre: the Bond girls fade into insignificance as she becomes his moral counterpoint and theirs is the only real relationship on screen."^ No matter, while in Bolivia we are matroned by the closest thing to a real Bond girl, agent Fields.

^ Judi Dench reprises her role as the M, the Head of MI6 and James Bond’s boss.

^ I really liked the style of this movie, Craig is central and centre screen, its crafted work visually extremely creative, and in that single area itself makes every Bond movie previous look staid by comparison.
