AM. Run 13½/62 steady HR149(158 )
Went out for a steady run this morning.
Quantum of Solace
We took ourselves off to town to see this this evening. It’s a good, pacey film, but not a patch on Casino Royale, from the opening credits onwards (I loved those dancing, swirling playing cards!). The thing that made it hardest to enjoy were the gaping holes in the plot, most of which consisted of a means to get from one set-piece battle/fight to the next. Yes, Bond is being portrayed as a much darker character, but there was very little humour to relieve things – no “Q”, no “Moneypenny”. I think they’ve tried to step up to the mark of the “Bourne” films, and failed.
