By Claudia Puig In Quantum of Solace (**1/2 out of four), the stunts are as muscular and the film as handsome to look at as the hero who so ably pulls them off.

In the latest 007 thriller, Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig continues to explore the depths of the iconic superspy, this time (his second) revealing a man consumed by his job. It just so happens that his work is saving the world. "It's no moral judgment," Craig says, sitting with his right arm in a sling, the result of 007 action work aggravating an old injury. "If there's ambiguity to the...

By Theresa Howard NEW YORK -- Daniel Craig, the sixth and latest James Bond, didn't just bring in new fans with his debut two years ago. He also has lured new marketers to the movie franchise well-known for product placement and tie-ins. Eon, which owns Bond rights, and Sony, which took over distribution in buying MGM, hoped Craig could broaden Bond's appeal across generations, gender and geography.

By Mark Hughes It has been billed as the Bond that will break with tradition. In Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig will not ask for his martini, "shaken, not stirred", and won't call himself "Bond, James Bond". But one 007 tradition remains: Quantum of Solace will have more paid-for corporate product placements than other Bond movies before it. When the film is released at the end of next month, cinema-goers will see Bond drive his customised Aston Martin wearing his Omega watch and...

By Craig Brown IT IS one of the few pieces of film music that attracts as much attention as the movie itself - the James Bond theme song. Almost a genre in its own right, the list of artists who have stepped up to record it reads like a who's who of modern 20th- century music, including Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Lulu, Carly Simon and Nancy Sinatra. However, the makers of Quantum Of Solace, the 22nd episode in the Bond franchise which is due to be released in the UK in October,...

By Cahal MilmoChief Reporter RATHER like a 007 plot itself, the question of who would perform the theme tune to the next James Bond film generated a succession of false leads, fractured relationships and smouldering divas before yesterday, it finally entered a dramatic ending featuring a statuesque brunette and an eccentric genius obsessed with the number three. In keeping with the new edgier, darker side to the British actor Daniel Craig's Bond, it was announced that the opening song to...
