I loved Daniel Craig's first Bond movie, Casino Royale. Consequently, I had high hopes for Quantum of Solace and was bitterly disappointed with what I saw in theaters.
There was a reason for that. Daniel Craig talked about it, in a recent interview.
It seems that the script is sometimes an after-thought on huge productions.
‘Yes and you swear that you’ll never get involved with shit like that, and it happens. On “Quantum”, we were fucked. We had the bare bones of a script and then there was a writers’ strike and there was nothing we could do. We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. I say to myself, “Never again”, but who knows? There was me trying to rewrite scenes – and a writer I am not.’
It seems that Craig's next Bond movie, Skyfall, has a proper script. Perhaps I'll allow myself to hope that it's good.
