Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I sat through this last night.Is this the worst Bond movie ever? Apart from the chase through the building site,nothing happened.
     
  2. Me too. I was a bit baffled by it all and at one point, lost the thread of the plot. I liked that Bond was more violent. Lots of really hard and realistic fighting. Loved the rope torture. I winced every time the bad guy swung that rope end around. Ooooh me plums! 8O
     
  3. I thought it was great apart from the collapsing building/underwater scene at the end which rather spoiled it.
     
  4. yes, I got up half-way thru and went on the computer.

    As you say, I thought the 'Parkour' based chase sequence was good but... I stayed with it til he took a break fro the card game... where the Africans attacked his oponent and went to cut his birds arm off.

    How did it (film) end?
     
  5. Yeah looked forward to it all day then it starts................bugger me no David Niven,bad form.
     
  6. The 1967 version of Casino Royale was much better.

    I finally got round to watching Quantum Of Solace the other night... I dont have a problem with daniel craig, but the film itself was pish... although the car chase at the start was good. as for the plane sequence/parachute jump about halfway through... cgi'd to death and looked pants. the parachute sequences in Moonraker look far better even though they were filmed 30 years ago. if I want hyper-real spy action, I'll cut to the chase and go watch the Bourne films - james bond films *should* be over the top and larger than life.

    oh, and as for that chase? hand over hand *up* steel cables on the tower crane? chinny on.
     
  9. She kept her arm.
    Bond killed those two black guys.The girl from the Treasury was actually working for Le Chiffre.She diverted the money to her bank account.Final scenes in Venice.
    Bond sees girl give money with Le Chiffre,the penny drops.She had been pressured into doing it but Bond didn't know it.
    Building starts to collapse,girl trapped in lift cage.Mr White(who we saw at the begining acting as go between between the black guys and Le Chiffre) picks up the case with the money in it,goes to his villa.
    Bond tracks him down,and shoots him in the ankle.Final scene with Bond standing over him.End.Fade to credits.
     
  10. Yeah, steel crane cables with no stray ends to spike into your skin! Imagine actually attempting that. They would be as greasy as fcuk too. Totally unrealistic.

    Bond: "Do you expect me to talk?"
    The viewing public: "No Mr Bond, we expect you to be exciting."
     
  11. Not as unrealistic as the underwater building collapse scene - that was ridiculous!
     
  12. Yeah, the visibility would have been completely fcuked up for a start.
     
  13. Any chance of the first part then I won't have to bother watching it at all. :wink:
     
  14. Great movie quote from 'M' though ;-)
