Quantum of Solace Quick Shot

QOS was great, but not Casino Royale EXCELLENT. I can't put my finger on it, but taking this new direction with Bond being a killer isn't the Bond I grew up watching. The quick cuts in the action sequences were ok, but it is something that worked fine in the Bourne franchise and where it should stay.

I have a feeling that the third Bond will bring him back to what we have loved about classic Bond. I could be wrong here, but with both 'CR' and 'QOS' this is a very green and young Bond.............that also acts Rogue. At the end of 'QOS' he

. I think that this could be the beginning of a Bond that isn't hell bent on killing everyone in his way.

Just my .02 cents.

I know many complained about the length, but it wasn't an issue for me. Since this clocks in a few minutes less than the excellent Dr. No. I did have a slight problem with action scene after action scene. There was just way too much of it. Other than that, I still enjoyed QOS.

I've heard this is far more like a "Bourne" movie than a "Bond" movie. A lot of action without the spying and gadgets that made Bond famous.

Sometimes this film felt like James Bourne.
