    Was awful

    spoilers.

    Bond was going places on a whim, the bad guy could have been good but they didnt try to make him look bad.. The whole point of the movie was bond gettting revenge and trying to show that him loving this girl wasnt detremental to him being an agent.. thats great, but they didnt sell it. THIS MOVIE BLLLLLLLLLLLLLEW.

    It didn't get the best reviews by most critics, but that in no way is going to stop me from going to watch it. Craig was fantastic in the first one. The direction they've gone with the Bond movies was a long time overdue. Even if it is an extension of Casino Royal, I'll treat it as such...and I think I'll like it. We'll see by Wednesday.

    Most of the criticism I read is that he's not slick and 'too cool for school' like the Bonds of the past. They say it's "too real."

    LOL @ that criticism.

    See, I actually was disappointed with Quantum of Solace because it didn't seem as "real" as Casino Royale.

    I can see that. There was much more action in QoS. They probably went over the top with the action in terms of time spent on it as a % of the whole movie. But CR had the whole poker playing, wearing a tux, polished James Bond. This was a much more (to borrow from a review) "bull in a china shop" type character.

    I was expecting a lot more since I'm a HUGE fan of the Bond movies but this didn't live up to expectations.

    The think I didn't like is that the guy wasn't really "bad", it didn't really seem like he was very bad.

    there was a lot of action though.

    I think it's funny how Felix, the CIA agent, looks disgusted/upset in every scene.

    It doesnt give the viewer a chacne to play along. Bond goes all over the world..just because. And astoundingly he makes the right guess. Honestly the villian wasnt evil, the camera for the action was awful so you couldnt follow it. It had like second glimpses, when he was chasing the guy through the tunnels after he said "we have people everywher" the guy goes through this gate bond has to go another way and just finds the guy. I MEAN HONESTLY WHAT HAPPEND? everyone at the theater was looking around like, "really?" i think everyone was like alright, ill be patient and wait for the story to pick up but it didnt.

    I preferred Casino Royale but I still liked Quantum although I developed ADD from the first car chase.

    Olga is uber hot.

    Covering Strawberry Fields in oil like what Odd Job did to Jill Masterson in Goldfinger was a bit cheesy.

    My wife is hot for Daniel Craig.

    Casino Royale peaked my interest in Bond movies again. Probably my fav Bond flick.

    I'm seeing this one tonight.

    You're not the first to say it stunk though.
