* CompleteMonster: [[TheGeneralissimo General Medrano]] raped and killed Camille's family in front of her, and burnt down the house. He conspires with Dominic Greene of the organization Quantum, deliberately engineering a nationwide drought in Bolivia to get allow Quantum to get its hands on his nation's water supply and having the gall to frame the government for selling off its rainforests. Medrano is willing to plunge his nation into drought and famine, dooming multiple innocent people, [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans just so he can have an excuse to seize power]]. When Greene informs Medrano how expendable he truly is to Quantum, Medrano buckles under pressure and acquiesces to Greene's demands before [[AttemptedRape trying to rape his maid]] out of frustration. When Camille intervenes, Medrano tries to rape and murder her as well, mocking her about her mother and sister.

** The theme song, "Another Way to Die", is this as well. After the near-universal acclaim of "You Know My Name" from the previous film, many felt this song was a ''terrible'' follow-up.

** With Mr. White returning in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', there was some closure/expansion to what ''Quantum'' left... and an even more divisive reception.

* ToughActToFollow: This isn't a badly done action movie, by any means, and it's definitely superior to a good number of previous Bond films, but it's definitely a step down from ''Casino Royale''--which was one of the most acclaimed action movies of 2006, and is now often cited as one of the top 10 movies in the James Bond franchise. While it got generally favorable reviews from critics (it currently holds a score of 64% on Website/RottenTomatoes), many fans trashed it after comparing it to ''Casino Royale''.

* WTHCastingAgency: Mathieu Amalric was mainly known for playing whimsical or eccentric intellectuals in French auteur cinema. How he ended up as a Bond villain is anyone's guess.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted, with a solid, if not particularly inspired, FPS (even if it's more of a ''Casino Royale'' adaptation - only five of its twenty levels are from ''Quantum of Solace''). The PS2 version is a well made third person shooter, and the DS is hard to describe. Incidentally, the Next-Gen and PC versions were done by [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Treyarch]].

* HarsherInHindsight: The villains' plot, depriving the Bolivian people of water, [[{{Narm}} seemed silly]] when it was released. In 2016, it was determined that the government of Flint, Michigan, deliberately allowed their water supply to become toxic, which led thousands of locals to suffer serious ailments such as lead poisoning.

** According to WordOfGod, the reason Bond and Camille do not sleep together in this film is because the writers felt that having their hero seduce a traumatized rape victim would be in exceptionally poor taste. In the [[Film/{{Skyfall}} very next film]], however, Bond does in fact seduce a traumatized rape victim... and it got pretty much the exact reaction they feared they would get with this one, so one wonders why they forgot.
