This film could have been so good, but Marc Forster's clichéd and
ham-fisted direction completely ruined it for me. To be fair, his
handling of the quieter moments between the action was adequate, but he
clearly has no grasp of how direct action sequences, which are clearly
central to any good Bond. I'm afraid the 'shake the camera and cut at
least once a second' school of action direction doesn't really cut it.
It's tragic really, as the setup and the stunts for the sequences looked pretty promising, but you had to look pretty hard to tell once Mr. Forster's hopeless direction kicked in. Such a waste.
I think I'll hold out for the special edition DVD - you know - the non-directors cut!
