PostSubject: Marc Forster still defending his work on QUANTUM OF SOLACE   Thu Sep 15, 2011 4:12 am

Quote :
"Quantum of Solace" director Marc Forster is still fielding questions about his work on the film which left a lot of critics and fans disappointed after the almost universally appreciated "Casino Royale" helmed by Martin Campbell.

Speaking to IndieWire about his upcoming movie "Machine Gun Preacher", Forster admitted that there were drawbacks with heading into such a big property

“‘Quantum of Solace’ was a bit of a different circumstance than a lot of my other films because you’re stepping into a franchise, and also in that particular film, we’re dealing with a script from the writer’s strike, which was difficult to handle because there was never time to really develop a finished script. Most of the time was about scouting locations more than what was on the page.” All that being said, he likes the film, while acknowledging that it may not have been what people were after from a Bond picture: “I’m very pleased with how the film turned out. I do think in the third act, some of it I wish we could have had more time to develop the script in a more profound and in-depth way… It’s just that it was a very intensified and rushed experience. People are always looking for what they love most in that particular franchise, and ultimately you can’t please everyone. I was very aware going into it that my objective in that particular film was to make it more like a ‘70s, very straightforward revenge movie, and that sort of pace was my point of view.”

“Machine Gun Preacher” opens in New York and Los Angeles on September 23rd, and goes wider the following Friday, September 30th.

I liked QOS and still do - there are some flaws but it's refreshingly different from your average Bond film and has some really iconic moments (the PTS, Opera sequence, getting drunk in first class to name a few) and amazing locations. The only thing that really bugs me is the jumping onto the car line at the end ("you killed a friend of mine" or something equally cheesy).

It's taken many years But I've come to accept QOS. It has many flaws
But I do feel it has its moments and do think it's D Arnold's best score to date.
I hope he's back for the next One.

I'd certainly agree the script is the biggest weight the film has to shoulder, the seeds are there but I don't feel Foster either had the time or perhaps the enthusiasm to make them grow. I have come to enjoy the film more today than it's two immediate predecessors mind.
