Mendes must’ve directed this film via Skype. A Skypecall Skyfall.(sorry) The film seems such a waste of everyone’s talent and the audiences time.
Mr Craig is fantastic and I hope he stays on for another few films to correct the wake of this abortion.
So many things could’ve been done better. I saw an interview where Sam Mendes referred to North by North West being the first bond film. So why did He make a spy film with absolutely zero suspense?
So many great scenes wasted. The skull and eye crushing scene which introduces the henchman. Is followed by the poorest car chases on celluloid performed in two of the worlds most expensive cars. Bond is chatting to moneypenny about something or other and listens to frank sinatra. “Lolz” The suspense was peed up the wall.
And how about the bomb. Bonds watch could’ve been faulty? Or had a delay. Another waste.
Christoph Waltz gives his weakest performance and wasn’t used to anywhere near his potential. Should’ve given the part to an unknown.
