Quantum of Solace

Oooh, new Bond is so violent. I kind of miss suave, jokey Brosnan Bond, but this was good- nice traditional Bond beginning, with the silhouettes and so forth, and two excellent Bond girls, Olga Kurlyenko and Gemma Arterton.
Car chases, plane chases, motorcycle chases, boat chases, runninf on roofs and some excellent explosions.
Plot hinged on water rights in Bolivia, which was almost comically appropriate because immediately after watching Quantum of Solace, I put on Flow, a documentary about the privatization of water rights across the world, and it focused on Bolivia. Serendipity!
