Quantum of Solace

Peace is hard to find.

Overall C+

In Quantum of Solace, James Bond (Daniel Craig) seeks some answers to, and perhaps a little vengeance for, the betrayal of Vesper Lynd (which happened in the proceeding film Casino Royale). When his investigation leads to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), the secret agent begins working with a woman named Camille (Olga Kurylenko) in the hopes of uncovering the dangerous man's diabolical plot. But as the case unfolds, 007 finds himself wondering if the beautiful stranger is really a friend or a foe.

Why is Quantum of Solace rated PG-13? Quantum of Solace is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action, and some sexual content.

Rapid-fire editing and an aggressive car chase open this film and set the tone for what’s to come. More chases, shootings, stabbings and hand-to-hand conflicts continue throughout the film and although the carnage isn’t explicit, we do see blood at times. During some violent scenes, many secondary characters or “innocent bystanders” would be presumed killed or injured as a result of Bond’s determination to bring about justice. In a photograph we see a person’s mutilated face. A body is seen floating in water. Sexual activities engaged in by an unmarried couple are heavily implied (we see them in bed afterward, apparently naked but no details are shown), however a third character explains the negative consequences of these behaviors. A murdered woman is found naked and covered in oil (she is shown lying on her front). A woman is about to be raped, but the act is interrupted. Some female characters wear revealing clothing. Profanities are infrequent, but include one scatological term, a handful of mild expletives and one Christian term of Deity. Frequent social drinking is portrayed and in one scene a principal character attempts to escape from stress by drinking heavily. A comment is made about the availability of drugs.
