James Bond: Quantum of Solace

The trailer for the new James Bond flick is out for Quantum of Solace and it looks like a Jason Bourne movie, especially some of the stunts and fight sequences, like when the camera jumps with Bond as he flies over a building on a motorcycle, very reminiscent of Bourne jumping from a rooftop through a building window.

Make sure there’s an intense fight scene in a small bathroom or apartment.

Bond is a relic of the 50’s and 60’s. When they decided to revamp the series, they should have done period pieces and basically started remaking the movies. That’s what Bond movies are anyway, remakes. It’s always the same story, Bond chasing a bad guy and trying to kill him before the world is destroyed. In Solace it looks like Bond goes rouge and is hunted down by his own people, again, just like Jason Bourne.

Bond has been suffering from an identity crisis ever since Roger Moore left the series. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of Moore’s work. But at least you knew what you were getting with him. An old guy trying to get laid and try to kill some bad guys. I like Craig as an actor and he does fine as Bond, but he lacks humor. He reminds me of the T-1000 in Terminator 2 or something.

I guess I can’t rip on the movie since I haven’t seen it yet. But based on the track record of Bond over the past two decades, I think I can take a wild guess that it ain’t nothing I ain’t seen before. And probably done better in the recent Bourne flicks.
