Hollywood director Martin Campbell said he was unhappy with the making of the 2008 blockbuster movie Quantum of Solace.
Campbell, who was appreciated for giving James Bond series a reboot that it needed in 2006 with Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig, said the movie Quantum of Solace directed by Marc Forster did not keep up with his or the audience expectations.
Oh, I thought it was lousy. And hopefully this next one will be terrific. Sam Mendes is directing it and I'm sure it'll be terrific, Campbell was quoted as saying in Crave.
I just thought the story was pretty uninteresting. I didn't think the action was related to the characters. I just thought overall it was a bit of a mess really, he said.
Now, Campbell sounds outright about the nature of these films to the media and about what Forster did with his franchise on Quantum of Solace, and he doesn't sound any happier about the results than the audience.
Martin Campbell's much-awaited Green Lantern opened on Friday. The film is a superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name.The movie stars Ryan Reynolds. The film is scripted by Greg Berlanti and comic book writers Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, which has been subsequently rewritten by Michael Goldenberg.
