I think word of mouth will hurt Quantum of Solace.

Seems to me like this movie was made to tell us that Quantum wasn't up to any good. In the other Bond movies we knew SPECTRE was no good. But since SPECTRE can't be used because of legal reasons they want a new evil group to fight against for the next how ever many movies. This movie was meant to tell more about them and I'm sure we'll get more information about them in future movies as well.
What I'd like to know is if the people who hold the SPECTRE rights are actually benefitting from doing so.
Not saying QT isn't overrated, but he does good things sometimes, and Fleming's CR is a clear and present influence on his good works. He'd've done it right.

Sadly, the Bond people have owned all the SPECTRE rights since the last nefarious bit of legal chicanery they employed with McClory several years back. They could use them anytime now, it isn't like the Moore era where they had to change the scripts to omit SPECTRE references, they're choosing not to use them.
