^^ The director said early on that he was setting out to intentionally make the movie under two hours.
As long as the movie's good, I don't care if it's under two hours. Casino Royale actually could have used a little trimming, especially at the end.
Oh, I agree. Sometimes I hate it when a movie drags on for two and a half hours. My butt can get numb. It just seems jarring and surprising considering the length of CR, which QoS is a direct sequel of.
