According to this site. Bond might be navigating a motorbike along the Great Wall of China.
2 bike films in a row for Craiger.

Link is not working. A bike chase along the great wall of China? Is China being touted as a location? News to me. Sounds like BS. How many films (not all Bond) have the idea of a bike chase along the great wall of China? And why would it be exciting? Sounds boring to me, but then this is a Craig film and will have split second, headache inducing edits. The only reason they exist is because the audience can't stand the sight of his face for long periods of time.

I doubt it will happen, but it could be that most cliched and trite of all cinematic words, "iconic." I'm unaware of this ever being done before. Throw in a blimp impaling itself on the Washington Monument and you'd have a real rouser.

I'd only be interested in it if it leaves a lasting impression...his brief moments on a bike in QoS reminded me too much of the Bourne movie which was released only months before.

Jeez, there used to be a time when Bond set the pace for imitators, not the other way around.

I'm honestly hoping that Bond 23 washes out the bad taste that Quantum of Solace left in my mouth...

Sounds like a terrible idea to me... just sounds incredibly gimmicky.

If theres an action sequence I'd like to see repeated, I'd love to see Bond paraglide in somewhere ala LALD.... though others will probably think thats Batman-esque.

Or TWINE-esque. Look, it's almost impossible in this day and age to do action sequences that don't remind somebody of something.

If Bond 23 can at least do that, then I'm a happy camper. I want to feel a little more upbeat leaving the cinema

First they pay tribute to Donkey Kong in CR, then Sonic the Hedgehog in QOS. This is next.

Sounds pretty ridiculous.

It'd probably be labelled culturally insensitive anyway.

I'd say the rooftop chase, some ridiculously platform game-esque moments in there. Hope Bond 23 leaves Bond's "later to be removed with CGI" harness at home and concentrates on stunts that can actually be done without cheating.

Interesting how there turned out to be a shred of truth in this, with the motorbike chase on the rooftops of Istanbul, along with scenes in Shanghai and Macau.
