“Quantum Of Solace” To Be Shorter And Very Intense

LONGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER…AND DIRECTOR MARC FORSTER IS BRINGING BOND, JAMES BOND IN AT 1 HOUR AND 40 MINUTES…FOUR PACKS LOVES DANIEL CRAIG AND MARC FORSTER AND BOTH WILL NOT DISAPPOINT…”QUANTUM OF SOLACE” WILL BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF NOVEMBER (ISN’T THERE AN ELECTION OF SOME SORT GOING ON…?)….

“Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster has revealed that his new film will be the shortest James Bond adventure ever, clocking in at just over one hour and 40 minutes.

“The movie is, you know, a little over an hour and 40 minutes, so it’s much of a more compact emotional intense journey than Casino,” said Forster.

“I don’t know if [the action scenes] top Casino Royale, but I think they work for Quantum of Solace, and throughout there’s a certain intensity that’s created that the movie I feel is really a ride, and it’s a ride with Bond, and it’s I think an intense one.”

Quantum of Solace features the return of Daniel Craig, who made his debut as 007 in 2006’s Casino Royale. The new film is a direct sequel to the earlier feature – another first for Bond – kicking off around half an hour in real time after the end of Casino Royale, which was the first for many years to take its cue from an original novel by Ian Fleming.

Solace chronicles Bond’s efforts to track down the ruthless international organisation which had a part in the death of his lover Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale. His journey takes him to Italy, Austria and South America, where he encounters the villainous Frenchman Dominic Greene, a purported environmentalist who is in fact trying to take over the water supply of Bolivia by staging a coup d’etat.

The film’s short running time is unusual because James Bond films typically run to at least the two-hour mark, and Casino Royale was a whopping 144 minutes long. Given that the new film does not have its predecessor’s basis in a Fleming original, some fans may wonder if that suggests a lack of confidence in their material on the part of the film-makers this time around.”
