The Trades review QUANTUM OF SOLACE!
Here’s a look at a couple of early reviews for the new 007 film from the two big trades, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety. It appears to me that from the last James Bond outing, CASINO ROYALE, and now reading about this latest installment, the creators have clearly created a Bond that appeals to the under 35 crowd much more than to the fans who grew up on Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Pierce Bronson of the 60’s through early 2000’s. Whether the decision to take out the character’s sense of humor and turn him into a soulless killing machine, void of much feeling, will continue to be a winning formula is yet to be seen, but my gut feeling is that older demographic will lose patience with this approach sooner than later, while the younger crowd who identifies with the Bourne Identity franchise will continue to eat this up. Personally I like the older school Bond better but still look forward to this new film!
