Quantum_of_solacebondxWhen I talked to director Marc Forster on Monday morning, he admitted that trying to top Martin Campbell's Casino Royale was the thing that gave him the most pause. But he plowed ahead and delivered a Bond that is long on action and short on sex and dialogue.

Variety's Derek Elley, reviewing from London, writes that this shorter, Bourne-influenced Bond film does not improve on the last one, and begs producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson to return to form. (Daniel Craig worries that there won't be enough money around to make another one anytime soon.) I recognize that Forster's Bond takes chances by straying from the formula. But I think his is the most modern, stylish and elegant Bond in years. Here's my interview.

Here's the trailer:
