I would have never expected a movie called Quantum of Solace would be such a brutal, violent, remorseless thriller.
In the interest of full disclosure. I loved everything about Craig’s leaner meaner Bond in Casino Royale. I never have nor will I likely ever be into my father’s 007 (Sean Connery or even Pierce Brosnan) and I imagine he has been ruined for most of this generation by the one two punch of Austin Powers and Jason Bourne.
I loved the new movie but I’m over shaky cam and super quick cuts. The opening chase scene is a fucking travesty that could have been salvaged with just like 2 minutes (divided amongst them) of additional padding on those shots. The world can’t be this attention deficit, can it? If we truly demand this level of speed in our entertainments it’s not a disorder, it’s a goddamn epidemic.
If you didn’t stay till the end credits allow me to spoil that “James Bond will Return.” I will be waiting eagerly. What did you all think?
