First of all let me put it out there, I don’t like Daniel Craig as James Bond don’t get me wrong Daniel Craig is a very fine actor, I love seeing his movies(Munich is a good example) but as Bond I don’t think so , I find so many flaws and it is painful because I’m a Die-hard fan of Bond.
I grew up watching the likes of Sean Connery, Roger Moore , Pierce Brosnan… all this actors played and did a memorable work with the bond franchise, My favorite bond being Pierce Brosnan , even with his movie “The November Man” you can still see that James Bond flow, the way he handled Situations , the neat suit, you hardly see him sweat. Daniel Craig just doesn’t do it for me, I don’t think he makes a good bond , he is the worst James Bond ever, this are just my opinion , it is totally debatable.
He goes against everything James Bond stands for, he completely has the wrong look for bond, too short, odd looking ( too serious than the usual Bond) and Big nose too , I just couldn’t wait to say that :). His approach to bond is charmless , humorless and stiff. Bond is smooth , Suave and not some macho tough guy that looks like he was in the army, he is just too rough, rogue for the part. My guess is there are trying to re-invent Bond, in quantum solace I didn’t understand what was going on for at least half of the film, there were barely 10 minutes dialogue, the rest was just fighting. Craig’s flicks are just too violent . I am really disappointed that this is what James Bond has been reduced to, those awesome gadgets we used to see and love ( like the invisible car) we don’t see them anymore.
We all love James Bond for his natural charisma, womanizing persona , martini shaking kind of way of 007. And still Daniel Craig or should I say the directors and writers had to redefine the character. Hey why mess with perfection right ? I liked James Bond just the way he was and I am sure you do too, if I want to see a power struggle spy movie there is always Bourne identity.
James Bond should rival Chuck Norris in his awesomeness . Daniel Craig in the other hand gets his heart broken by a chick. Quantum of Solace focuses on Bond’s revenge over the betrayal of the woman he loved. Does that sound like James Bond to you ? Ian Flemming won’t be happy with this shitty Bond in his grave… Check out the comparison between Quantum of Solace trailer and Die Another Day trailer (featuring the very best 007 Pierce Brosnan), Even Skyfall was still far from our normal 007 Movies.
When the rumor surfaced of Craig’s casting as James Bond, Everyone was complaining , some said he was too ugly , too short….. and now same people complaining are now defending him saying stuffs like he looks like Sean Connery . WHAT ??? get out of here!!!. I guess it won’t be much of a big deal if a black man is made James Bond one day, since everything is being revolutionized. And concerning a black man being James Bond I think Djimon Hounsou would make a very fine James Bond forget about the accent LOL.
