Quantum of Solace (2008): 22nd Bond Movie

Quantum of Solace is the twenty-second film in the iconic series about British secret agent James Bond, released in 2008. It was directed by Marc Forster and is a direct sequel to the film Casino Royale. The role of MI6 agent James Bond is once again portrayed by Daniel Craig.


The story follows the events of the film Casino Royale, where James Bond seeks revenge for the betrayal and death of his lover, Vesper Lynd. While investigating the culprits, he uncovers a complex web of lies and corruption associated with the mysterious organization known as Quantum.

In the opening scene, James Bond travels in his Aston Martin from Lake Garda to Siena in Italy with Mr. White in the trunk. After a car chase, he escapes his pursuers and hands Mr. White over to M, who interrogates him about the mysterious organization Quantum. During the interrogation, Mr. White mocks both MI6 and the CIA, stating that they don't even know their organization exists, and the first thing they should know is that they have their people everywhere. M's bodyguard, Craig Mitchell, shoots the guards and also fires at M. Bond pursues Mitchell and kills him, but Mr. White escapes in the chaos.

While searching Mitchell's apartment in London, Bond and M discover that Mitchell had contact with a man named Edmund Slate from Haiti. Slate is a hired assassin who was sent to kill Camille Montes, the mistress of environmentalist Dominic Greene, who hired him for the job himself. Greene is aiding exiled Bolivian General Medrano in murdering Camille's family and orchestrating a coup to become the new president in exchange for seemingly barren desert land, which actually conceals vast underground water reserves.

Seeking revenge, Camille boards General Medrano's boat, but Bond attempts to thwart her by saving her. Bond follows Greene to a performance of Tosca in Bregenz, Austria. Meanwhile, CIA South American Section Chief Gregg Beam, along with agent Felix Leiter, strikes a deal with Greene for non-interference in exchange for access to Bolivia's alleged oil reserves, which the CIA believes is the reason for Greene's interest in the land.

Bond infiltrates a Quantum meeting at the opera and eavesdrops on them. After informing them through their earpieces that they might want to find another meeting place, the concerned members rise from their seats, and Bond digitally identifies them. A conflict ensues. Special forces bodyguard working for Quantum member Guy Haines, British Prime Minister's advisor, is thrown off the roof by Bond after refusing to answer his questions. He lands on Greene's car and is shot by one of his men.

M believes that Bond killed the bodyguard and orders him to return to MI6 and file a report. However, when Bond disobeys her, stating that he wants to find those who tried to kill her, M has his passports and credit cards blocked.

Bond heads to Talamone, Italy, and persuades old ally René Mathis to accompany him to Bolivia. There, they are greeted by consulate worker Strawberry Fields, who demands that Bond return to Great Britain immediately. Bond seduces her, and together they attend a charity gala hosted by Greene. At the gala, Bond once again saves Camille from Greene, and they leave together. Bolivian police stop Bond and Camille and discover Mathis unconscious in the trunk of the car. One of the policemen shoots Mathis, and Bond kills them both. Before dying, Mathis asks Bond to forgive Vesper and himself.

The next day, Bond and Camille fly over the land Quantum is interested in. Their plane is damaged by a Bolivian fighter jet, but they manage to escape. They discover that Quantum is secretly withholding Bolivia's water supply to create a monopoly on its delivery. In the Bolivian capital La Paz, Bond meets with M and learns that Quantum drowned Strawberry Fields in crude oil. Bond meets with Leiter, who informs him that Greene and General Medrano are meeting at a hotel in the Atacama Desert to solidify their deal.

Bond and Camille infiltrate the hotel, where Greene is blackmailing Medrano into signing a contract that will make Medrano the leader of Bolivia in exchange for ownership of the land, making Greene the sole water supplier in Bolivia at significantly higher prices. Bond kills the police chief for betraying Mathis and confronts Greene. Meanwhile, Camille kills Medrano in revenge for the rape and murder of her family. The hotel, powered by highly flammable hydrogen fuel cells, is destroyed during the fight.

Bond captures Greene and interrogates him to gain information about the Quantum organization. He then leaves him stranded in the desert with only a can of motor oil. Bond and Camille share a kiss, and she wishes him luck in ridding himself of his demons.

In Kazan, Russia, Bond finds Vesper Lynd's former lover, Yusef Kabir, a Quantum member who lures agents with valuable contacts into their network and is indirectly responsible for her death. After saving Kabir's latest target, Corrine, who works for Canadian intelligence, Bond allows MI6 to arrest him. Outside, M tells Bond that Greene was found dead in the middle of the desert, with two bullets in his head and motor oil in his stomach. Bond admits that M was right about Vesper. M tells Bond that she needs him back, to which Bond replies that he never left. Bond drops Vesper's necklace into the snow.
