I’m not very particular about the Bond films. My expectations are generally low, and the movies always seem to exceed those expectations. So, I was kind of shocked to find that The Guardian, of all papers, was not a fan of Quantum of Solace. At all.
On one hand, as the first Bond outing for four years, it has to meet a certain amount of expectation. Then again, since Quantum of Solace was so unapologetically woeful, the Skyfall trailer could simply consist of Daniel Craig clattering into the side of a shed again and again and it’d invariably be seen as an improvement.
Who knew there was so much hatred out there for Quantum? At any rate, the teaser trailer for the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall certain surpasses the “clattering into the side of the shed again and again” requirement. In fact, there’s dubstep. And explosions. The word association is a little irksome, but Craig is sufficiently bad ass to make up for it.
