''Quantum of Solace'' is the 22nd ''Film/JamesBond'' film, the second to star Creator/DanielCraig as 007, directed by Marc Forster. The title comes from a 1960 Creator/IanFleming [[Literature/ForYourEyesOnly short story]] and means "a small degree of comfort". The story follows on from ''Film/{{Casino Royale|2006}}'', making it one of the few {{Sequel Episode}}s in the ''Bond'' movie franchise.

** Elvis, Dominic's henchman, is first seen [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas speaking to his mother]] on the phone in [[GermanDialects Swiss German]], talking about the hot weather in Haiti. The actor playing him and director Marc Forster are both of Swiss descent, and probably thought it quite an amusing in-joke.

* StayWithMeUntilIDie: [[spoiler:Mathis]] requests this of Bond as he bleeds out in the street. Bond respectfully obliges, exchanging some touching banter with him, and then once he dies Bond discards his body in a dumpster and takes all the money out of his wallet. 'He wouldn't care'.

* DisposableWoman: Fields is a classic example, but Bond leaving Green in the desert with only a can of oil to drink indicates that he's avenging her somewhat. [[note]] She was drowned in oil. [[/note]]

* ActionizedSequel: The film is shorter than ''Casino Royale'' and packs more action, including a high octane CarChase right at the start. And most of it is in JitterCam.

* AwesomenessInducedAmnesia: Heavily implied as Bond makes his way out of the opera. The entire scene is in black & white, with awkward cuts, jerky and frequently out-of-focus camera work showing the viewer fragmented bits and pieces of 007 [[MookHorrorShow going through the organization's security force like paper]] with an utterly blank expression on his face the entire time.

* ShoutOut: The opera house sequence is deliberately edited to resemble a similar sequence in Creator/AlfredHitchcock's ''Film/TheManWhoKnewTooMuch''.
