Casino Royale started out with a ridiculously overdone action sequence barely related to the plot, only to develop a recognizable Bond spirit in fits and Bonds, um, bounds. Quantum of Solace , on the other hand, begins with action sequences very well integrated into the plot.
Of course, the cliffhanger ending of Casino Royale goes a long way to that end. White Jesper Christensen in the trunk. A breakneck chase from the sewers of Siena to the roofs over the town ensues. A running gag in the movie is Bond willy-nilly killing almost everyone he meets.

All that capitalists do is take control of resources or goods — of course by violent, fraudulent, or otherwise shady means — and double the price on consumers. Bond himself, Daniel Craig, channeling Ellsworth Toohey: For their own individual benefit as opposed to for the people. Even regarding killings and cruelty, the so-called heroes are nearly indistinguishable from the so-called villains.
That might be directly addressed to the audience. Yet where to turn?
