This movie takes place immediately after the finish of Casino Royale James Bond (Craig) has just apprehended Mr. White (Christensen) and has him in the trunk of his car. The cars are flying around with men hanging out the windows shooting automatic weapons. When Bond finally reaches the hideout in Sienna Italy we get a glimpse of an underground group that has infiltrated every level of government. The name of this organization is Quantum and Bond who is also trying to figure out who was blackmailing Vesper. He kills just about everyone who gets in his way and takes us on a ride of revenge that establishes his untrusting, standoffish character for the rest of his career.

There are some amazing chases in this movie and two great fight scene in a glass house and Haiti. The story is choppy in places but there are some great characters including Dominic Greene (Amalric), Felix Leiter (Wright), Camille (Kurylenko), and Strawberry Fields (Arterton). So far this is the weakest of the three Bonds with Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall).
