Do you like this story?
When I saw the first of the new James Bond movies, I can’t say how much I was impressed with Daniel Craig’s Bond. The cocky self-love fest was over. Bond was stripped down now to a more realistic, albeit primal character. He is more human in his weakness, but more precise in his killing. There is a dash of Bourne in him now.
The new film, Quantum of Solace, has Bond flying all over the world trying to foil the plans of evil Dominic Greene, hell bent on ruling Bolivia. It also involves a revenge plot surrounding events from the first film. That’s all I know.
Bond can be seen wearing a pair of sunglasses throughout the movie and it actually took me some time to find out what it is. Apparently a lot of people have been arguing about whether the frame is Tom Ford TF108 19 or are actually a discontinued pair of Oliver Peoples called Airman. I’ve read that Daniel Craig actually selected some of the items to be worn in Quantum of Solace, sunglasses included and he choose Olive Peoples, but as Tom Ford is doing all the clothing, they've actually supplied him with the TF108 19. Well, Daniel Craig has got excellent taste.
